Winter Wedding Trends


Are you considering to get married in winter, but struggle to find creative ideas that are in fashion? The Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club and  Maccauvlei on Vaal not only offer wedding packages suitable for the colder months, but they also offer some tips on what is currently trending when it comes to winter weddings.

These venues have been working with wedding professionals over time and therefore wedding couples can be sure to receive the best possible service and tips to plan the perfect winter wedding. No need to keep to the original snowflakes and standard ornaments – try thinking out of the box. Here are some trendy winter wedding ideas to ponder on:

Bold and brightly coloured invitation cards are taking the back seat this season. Work with hues of copper, bronze, gold, earthy blends of burgundy, sienna and chocolate brown. Silhouettes in black and white are also increasing in popularity. Move away from the all so popular e-invites and keep it vintage with earthy coloured hand-made wedding invitations.

Create a bouquet of low, lush arrangements that are made up of white and ivory coloured flowers and fill it with bright flowers. Use wintery textured accents like lamb’s ears and thistle to complete the bouquet.

Gold is a definite wedding trend this season and wedding designers use this to their advantage in the reception area, accentuating the tables with beautiful golden menu cards and flatware.

Something blue has taken a new turn. Make this winter an out of the box one and get married in teal, turquoise or indigo coloured wedding shoes.

To add some warmth to your winter wedding atmosphere, there is nothing better than using loads of lighting candles, mirrors and crystals which reflect light. Add flowers with soft tones that will give a sort of magic touch to you winter wedding.
