5 ideas for planning the perfect winter beach wedding

Winter weddings are incredibly popular. The weather inspires romance as you can cosy on up with your husband or wife to be. If you plan on getting married in Gibraltar during the winter months, then we have some top wedding planning tips for you. Enjoy!

1. Invest in winter accessories

Getting married on the beach during the middle of winter requires the right type of winter accessories. Swap that wedding veil for a stunning winter cape, it can even be fur lined. Wear a pretty hat, use a stole and incorporate winter flowers into the bridal bouquet.

2. Wedding attire

You can have so much fun in choosing your wedding outfits. The colder weather is perfect for wearing a long sleeved wedding dress that features intricate beading. The dress can be long, or worn short with pretty tights. The groom can wear a velvet blazer instead of a jacket, and can team this look with a waistcoat.

3. The right footwear

Winter weddings on the beach most definitely require the correct footwear. You need to say goodbye to those cute pumps or flip flops and say hello to cute boots. Choose an ankle boot that is white, sparkly or matches the colour of your wedding dress. Alternatively, if your dress is short, then why not opt for a long boot, you can get your bridesmaids to wear the same style.

4. The importance of colour

People often think that winter means a lack of colour, but they are wrong. Colour is muted and much softer and this can inspire the choice of wedding flowers, choice of decorations and colour of wedding dress. Choose from natural colours such as greens, yellows and pale blue. Go bold with red and gold. Or keep things simple with crisp white.

5.The photographs

A winter beach wedding provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. The winter sea is a stunning backdrop for photographs, as is the warm glow of the fire pit. Hold hands under the low setting sun for exquisite wedding photographs.
