3. Winter Colour Palette and Textures
Winter brings warm tones and deep colour palettes which are perfect for a wedding. The suit options are endless and with our collection of wedding suits ranging from tailored to a skinny fit and plain fabrics to a bold check, we are sure we'd have something to suit your day. If you are looking for more of trend-led look, opt for a burgundy coloured suit. Burgundy is a tried and tested wedding colour theme allowing bridesmaids and flowers to tie in perfectly. Another great option is highlandwear if you are up for it, a bold tartan can add a burst of colour whilst adding a personal touch by wearing a clan tartan. You can take this to the next level by having your highland outfit Made To Measure. And lastly, there is never a better time to go down the Black Tie route. Black tie doesn't always work in a summer wedding, but it's an elegant choice for a darker winter night as a backdrop.
4. Festive Decor
Let's be honest, as soon as Halloween is over, the Christmas festivities begin. Trees and decorations start popping up, and everything is covered in glistening lights. Although the holidays might not be the reason you choose to have your wedding in November or December or even something you personally celebrate, there are benefits to aligning your day with the festivities, the biggest one being decorations. Most venues will already be decorated for the Christmas period, get in touch with your venue to find out what colour scheme they have for this time of year and tie this in with your theme to provide a backdrop of colour, texture and lighting for your day and what's even better, at no cost to you.
5. Food, Glorious Food
When it's cold outside people want comfort food so use this opportunity to make the most of your menu. Think warm vegetable soups and big hearty main meals. Take it one step further with hot chocolate and mulled wine served at your drinks reception, or even a quick warm up shot of hot toddy!
6. Think Of The Photos
Just because it might be cold, it doesn't mean you have to skip the outdoor photos. Choosing to wear a heavier fabric like a traditional tweed or a fashion-forward velvet blazer will add a layer of warmth without losing your look. But hey, that is not to say you can't literally layer up. Invest in a smart overcoat that compliments your wedding suit, and even pick up a photogenic umbrella, if there is such a thing (if not, at least new and clean) You're bride to be will be impressed by your thought and preparation for that 'just in case' moment! If you’re lucky enough to have snow, either falling or freshly laid on the ground, get out there and make the most of the dreamy backdrop, your photos will be magical.
