Winter is a wonderful time of the year and can be a great time to celebrate your wedding particularly during the winter holidays of Christmas & New Year. There are so many great elements that can be incorporated into your winter wedding and today we share some “Winter Wedding Must Have” inspiration for your wedding in Ireland.
Glamour & Luxe
A winter wedding in Ireland is classical with an elegant bride, dapper groom,log fires,fabulous stylish décor and delicious gourmet food.
Candles & Light Backdrops
Even though candles can work well all year around, in winter they are especially stunning and the winter season offers so many options for decorating with candles.Light backdrops also come into their own for a winter wedding.
It’s called a winter wonderland for a reason, we love the selection of flowers that the frostier months have to offer including red roses the classic symbol of romance & love. While white & red amaryllus and ranunculus give a beautiful variety & texture to winter wedding floral arrangements.
Cozy Fur Cape or Coat for the Bride
Even if you are having the ceremony & reception on site at the venue it is good idea to have a fur cape or even coat so you are well equipped to go outdoors for some photos.In Ireland our moderate climate mean it will rarely get too cold so outdoors photos are nearly always a possibility.
Something to keep everyone Snug
Don’t forget to keep the bridesmaids warm particularly while they are standing around for photos. You might also like to have a few extras wraps for guests who may have to venture out for photos. And of course you can’t forget the smokers perhaps provide some blankets so they are shielded from the chill!
Winter Wedding Beverages
The winter season offers so many opportunities for creating special drinks for the pre dinner cocktail reception. The beautiful aroma created by a mulled wine is wonderful welcome to the reception for your guests. An another Irish favourite is a hot Whiskey made using one of our terrific whiskeys! Your signature cocktail can be a luscious winter-themed cocktail. Non alcoholic options to accompany the champagne include a hot chocolate bar. Don’t forget some tea /coffee which can be served in pretty bone china with delicious cookies.
Winter Wedding Menu
The planning of the menu for your winter wedding allows for great creativity & innovation ensuring your guests have a gourmet experience of delicious food. Beginning with the cocktail hour winter calls for the serving of some warm Canapés which can include hot Irish salmon fillet,warm creme brulee of prawns & potato cake of smoked cheese. A soup course is a must for a winter menu served with homemade breads & scones. While for main course fillet of Irish beef with foie gras & a lemon sole dish continue to be favourite winter menu options. For dessert a delicious “warm apple crumble” or a chocolate trio. The trio can include “Irish cream chocolate truffle with an American favourite “warm chocolate brownie” served with home made ice cream. For a late night treat perhaps an all chocolate candy bar !
