South Florida weddings are usually famed for their beachy, summery themes, but a beautiful winter-themed wedding can offer a perfect antidote to the status quo. Take advantage of the gorgeous Miami weather to create a winter wonderland wedding with some Southern Florida twists.
Decor Fit for a Snow Queen
To create a winter wonderland environment, silver and white is a great on-trend color palette. For bouquets and floral arrangements, choose white blossoms and baby’s breath arranged with simple natural foliage and accented with silvery ribbon. For centerpieces and decor, think bare branches sprayed silver wrapped in sparkling crystals, which will reflect light to make the whole room sparkle. Use silver sequins as confetti, or sprinkle them along the aisle alongside white flower petals to create a magical, romantic feel.
Lighting is key to providing a dreamy atmosphere, and opting for soft blue uplighting will create an undeniably winter feel. Fairy lights can also give any venue a gorgeous, soft ambience and, filling your reception with candlelight will also enhance the romance. If your venue has a fireplace, a roaring open fire can make a cozy, eye-catching feature (it’s also a great opportunity to include a dessert s’mores bar!). If your wedding is outdoors, see if your venue can provide a fire pit to add the same warming effect to your reception. For an original send-off for the bride and groom, provide guests with sparklers to light and hold out as the happy couple make their exit.
Ski Slopes in South Florida
Why not add a themed photo booth to your wedding reception to capture some wintry snaps? Bring the snowy slopes to South Florida by decorating the booth with fake snow and adding props such as scarves. Toss in some ski goggles and snowflake confetti and you will provide endless fun for guests, as well as making some unique and special photo memories. Let us customize your Photo Strip to match your winter wedding theme.
Cocktails to Crave
Hot cocoa bars are currently trending with the winter wedding set as a warming cocktail hour idea with a cozy family element. However, in sunny South Florida, guests may be craving something a little more cooling, so add a twist to this theme with some refreshing iced cocktails with the same wintry wow-factor – try serving iced chocolate spiked with peppermint schnapps or Baileys. For a bonus festive charm, serve in frosted glasses rimmed with crushed candy canes.
Miami DJs that Dazzle
Your wedding DJs can be key players to setting the perfect tone for your reception and ensuring your guests have the time of their lives. Cleverly selecting your music will guarantee that the dance floor will be packed. A great DJ should be able to effortlessly touch on your wintery theme, but seamlessly blend this with classic tracks and favorite party anthems and floor fillers. At Vision DJs, this is all taken care of for you, using a unique interactive music list builder that helps you to create a playlist pleasing to both you and your guests, leaving you with nothing more to do than enjoy your special day.
