5 Great Winter Wedding Ideas. Why Knot?

We all know the beautiful Scottish Highlands makes the perfect backdrop for a breath-taking winter wedding. But there is something magical about a winter wedding at the Kingsmills Hotel. Glorious gardens dusted in snow, the historic backdrop of a snow-capped manor, not to mention a stunningly beautiful venue perfectly decorated to make all your wedding dreams come true. All in all, a winter wedding in the Highlands with the Kingsmills Hotel will make your special day that much more special. Which is why we have put together these 5 great winter wedding ideas to help you say “I do” to a fabulously frosty do.

1. Winter Colours

While reds and greens are great for the winter season, overdoing the festive colours may leave your wedding reception feeling more like the office Christmas party. So when it comes to your winter wedding colour palette, less is definitely more. Silvers, metallics (used sparingly of course), white with crystal accents and small twinkly lights add some serious glamour to your special day.

2. Winter Sparkle

Since most winter weddings are an indoor do, you can afford to make them a little more formal. Silvers and crystal accents make everything sparkly. Snowflake features, glittering ribbons and snowy scenes can be applied to just about every part of your winter wedding – from your invitations and table settings, to your bridesmaids’ accessories and your wedding cake.

3. Winter Weather

While everything looks beautifully romantic and picturesque in the grips of winter, it is easy to forget how cold it gets in the Highlands. Which means faux-fur wraps for you and your bridesmaids are a must. But one of our favourite winter wedding ideas has to be colour co-ordinated brollies and wellies. If it is wet or it snows, you can still make your wedding photos pop without getting your feet wet and your dress muddy.

4. Winter Warmers

On that note, don’t forget about your guests. If your wedding is outdoors (who doesn’t want to walk down an aisle of snow?) or you simply want to add to that winter wonderland wedding ambience, keep a basket of blankets for your guests to help keep everyone nice and toasty.
