Silver bells are ringing this week on One to Wed and we’re SO excited for our full week of winter wedding ideas right in the middle of the summer! And what more of a fitting kick off then on June 25th, exactly 6 months to go until Christmas and the winter wedding season! So brides-to-be, instead of thinking about mojito’s on the beach, it’s time for some crafty ornament ideas for your wedding favors, signature winter cocktails, and decorative (wintery) centerpieces.
First on our summer Christmas week is all things silver! For those of you who may be planning a December wedding but don’t want to go overboard with red and green or those planning a January of February wedding, silver is the perfect color for the season! It feels wintery but still warm and inviting and it can be paired with practically any other color to make the perfect palette. The key is just finding the most fun silver accessories to spice up your wedding day! I am obsessed with the simple but perfectly elegant ornament centerpieces below. This is such an easy do-it-yourself project that any DIY bride could put this together! All you need… silver trays, a few different shades of silver/grey/glittery ornaments and some oversized pine cones and you have this perfect winter centerpiece (final product below)! Other DIY ideas for the winter bride… wedding favors wrapped in little silver gift boxes topped with a bow and silver decoration, menu cards that are bedazzled with a mini silver brooch (all you need to do is add this little jewel to your existing menu cards for a very simple DIY enhancement!) I also LOVE the idea of keeping with the centerpiece theme and slipping place cards on little silver ornaments… (all picture ideas are below)!
For the non-DIY projects to create your silver wedding palette… back to the basics with a fabulous choice of glittery heels (as usual these Christian Louboutin’s below are my favorite), picking a silver infused bouquet, adding some sparkle with silver cupcakes (two different ideas below) and finally making sure your signature cocktail comes out with a silver glow!
By the time you’ve combined your DIY projects with your favorite silver accessories you’ll be well on your way to a non-traditional Christmas wedding but still keeping with the spirit of the season! Merry Christmas and happy holidays (only 6 months to go…)!!
