"Walking in a Winter Wonderland..."
We love all weddings no matter what time of year, but we have to say Winter Weddings always seem so whimsical and magic. After all, it is the season to be jolly!
Here we're going to guide you through everything we can think of so you can have stress-free planning and the ultimate day of your dreams.
When choosing the place for your "I Do" moment, focus on creating a space which complements the winter atmosphere. Think cozy cabins, historic estates with fireplaces, or elegant ballrooms decorated with warm lighting. Ensuring their is indoor space is important so yourself and your party can feel nice and snug from morning until night.
Since winter weather can always be unpredictable, have a plan in case of snow or rain. Have super cosy warm blankets ready to wrap up in when the weather turns chilly. Also... whether it's rain, sun or snow - enjoy it! It's your time shine (plus... use that umbrella as a prop for some incredible images!) Have a look at our Winter Wedding inspo below! So many ways to just roll with whatever weather you are faced with.
Work that Winter Vibe! Offer guests thoughtful winter-themed favours, such as mini snow globes, scented candles, or you could even offer personalised hot chocolate sachets!
WINTER WEDDING SHOES
Here's where we come into play, each pair of Charlotte Mills Bridal Shoes are handcrafted to ensure you feel the ultimate comfort within each style (as well as looking incredible!)
Here at CM, we specialise in block-heels as we want you to feel like you are walking on a cloud on your wedding day. We offer a variety of bridal shoe styles including block heels, tailored, flared, platforms, slim, slingback and even Wide-Fit shoes in Sizes UK 2 to 9 (we even have bridal trainers... & slippers!!)
Our shoes are delicately crafted and handmade in Spain with the finest materials. This is why we want to ensure you make the right choices depending on your wedding setting. Things to consider are, will you be walking through areas such as potentially wet grass, areas of snow, muddy puddles etc...
Here are some points to consider:
- What heel style are you used to wearing? Maybe consider closed-toe options to keep your feet feeling nice and cosy during the chilly season!
- Think carefully and tactically about fabrics and materials you choose as walking in any wet areas on a winters day is likely to affect their aesthetic.
- Always be mindful of any icy surfaces, take your time
- Pack your umbrella to protect your hair, make-up and veils from any crazy wind / rainy spells.
