When thinking about your custom wedding dress, you should also think about the season your big day falls in. Not only can a season contribute to the style decisions you will make for your custom wedding dress, the season can also contribute to the style of your overall wedding. Will you lean into warm autumnal tones or opt for bright spring blooms? Here are some tips on how to style your spring, summer, autumn or winter wedding.
Spring time is all about the flowers and the beautiful delicate tones of peach petals, soft pinks, purples and subtle whites and creams. Spring time definitely has a magical feel to it, with warmer weather and sweet scents in the air. Tap into this magic with fairy lights, gorgeous floral arrangements and whimsical touches like tiffany chairs, crystal glassware and beautiful flower crowns for you and your bridesmaids. Styling your cake with flowers is also another beautiful way to add a touch of spring to your day.
Just like spring, summer is the perfect time to decorate with flowers but the brighter the better! The long summer evenings call for candlelit receptions at dusk, and fairy lights that leave a beautiful ambiance on into the night, especially if you host your reception outside under the stars. Summer is also the perfect time to break out cute accents like brightly coloured pom poms and garlands. Don’t forget the fun outdoor games for your guests like jumbo chess or croquet.
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year to get married, and there are lots of ways to make your day extra special for you and your guests. Try finding a venue that has a fire pit or serves season themed drinks like mulled wine or cider. Darker colours like burgundy and navy are perfect for autumn weddings and help create a romantic and moody feel. You can also think about adding sleeves to your custom wedding dress for warmth.
Winter weddings call for rustic charm and simple, yet pretty details that create a big impact. Fairy lights and candles also work well in winter, creating a warmer atmosphere. White flower arrangements and homemade favours like chutneys and jams create perfect finishing touches to your winter styling. If you’re headed somewhere freezing or to the snow, think about pairing a shoulder wrap with your custom wedding dress for a glamourous cosy look.
