Top Tips for Your Winter Wedding

The winter wedding season is upon us! Get all the tips and winter wedding inspiration you need to plan the day of your dreams with a little help from Katie Loxton.

Winter is arguably the most magical time of year to host a wedding, with crisp white landscapes, candlelit settings, rich-hued furnishings, and that magical festive feeling in the air.

We have compiled a list of our top tips to help you create a day that both the newlyweds and the wedding entourage will never forget, from picking the perfect venue to choosing those all-important accessories.

An enchanting winter wedding venue will complement the season and theme of your special day perfectly. In cold or snowy weather, a historical castle with its fireplaces, original architecture, turrets and hidden passageways makes for a beautiful backdrop as you exchange vows. Or, channel some serious Downton Abbey vibes by booking a country house venue and consider making a grand entrance in a horse and carriage! Romantic locations don’t come much prettier than this!

Ensure to keep your wedding guests warm from ceremony to speeches with our gorgeous range of woman’s accessories from Katie Loxton. Pack some extra layers for your guests to help themselves to, for example, you may want to provide a basket of cosy blankets or some extra hats, scarves, or gloves if you are planning on being outside for any length of time. Your guests will appreciate this little added touch and it will help them to feel comfortable all day long!

Choose a seasonal colour palette to compliment your big day and chosen venue. Rich tones such as plum, khaki, navy, and metallics such as silver and gold work wonderfully with the contrasting wintry backdrop. Katie Loxton's range of Perfect Pouches are the ideal accessory to carry on your big day, with room to fit all the essentials for makeup touch-ups, your wedding fragrance, and a handkerchiefs in preparation for those inevitable happy tears! Plus, you can even embroider it with your new initials for a keepsake you will forever cherish.

It’s no secret that winter can be harsh on our skin, with the bracing weather and plummeting temperatures making our skin look dull and feel dry. You should practice your wedding makeup at least one time in the lead up to the big day, ensuring it is long-lasting and photographs well in the harsh white lighting. You also want to keep a spare lip balm and lipstick in your bridal clutch to reapply throughout the day and keep your lips hydrated - there is nothing worse than chapped, irritated lips! Due to the unpredictable weather conditions during the colder months (especially if you’re getting married in the UK!) it's a good idea to suggest that your makeup artist uses waterproof products - especially when it comes to your mascara and eyeliner.
