Top tips for adding sparkle to your winter wedding day

When choosing the perfect wedding date for you, winter is one season that’s certainly up there. Winter is a truly magical time to tie the knot, with the warm, cosy and intimate vibe certain to be appreciated by you, your bride- or groom-to-be, and your wedding guests.

The possibilities are endless when decorating your winter wedding venue too, with rich and opulent or chic and cool colour schemes just the beginning of your love affair with the season.

Whilst a sprinkling of snow isn’t guaranteed, even at the height of winter, adding your own touch of sparkle to the occasion will transform any venue into a wonderland. In this blog post, we reveal the top ways to add sparkle to your big day and complement that winter wedding theme to perfection.


Lighting has a bigger role to play than many people think. The right lighting can unlock a long list of benefits as well as bring your winter wedding scheme to life as MODwedding explains:

“Just as music controls the mood and energy of a dancing crowd, lighting governs the aura and ambiance of the entire affair. Illumination and decor do indeed go hand in hand. This is true regardless of your colour palette whether bold and vivacious or soft and subtle – lighting is essential to bringing decor and floral to life and creating the aesthetic of the environment.”

Cement that romantic look and feel by decorating your ceremony and reception spaces with twinkling fairy lights. Whether placing them up high or across your reception tables, fairy lights are a beautiful way to add subtle, seasonal sparkle to your venue.


Go beyond your lighting choices by spreading a touch of sparkle everywhere you go. Scatter sequins on your runners, adorn your table numbers with glitter, or add a glistening flourish to nature-inspired elements of your big day by embellishing pinecones and greenery.

Wedding attire

There are some stunning, sparkly wedding dress designs out there. Whether you want to go full on glam with all-over beading or classic and chic with pearl detailing, there are tons of scene-stealing wedding looks on offer.

If you’d prefer to keep your gown a little more minimalist, add sparkle to your wedding party with your choice of bridesmaid dresses.


Your accessories are just as important as your wedding dress. In fact, they have the power to bring together your entire look as well as provide an opportunity to add a little glitz and glamour to your ensemble.

From a dazzling tiara, jewel encrusted veil and beaded cover-up to glittery bridal boots or shoes, gemstone jewellery and a sparkling manicure, jazzing up your wider wedding ensemble with glistening accessories is easy.

Food and drink

Edible glitter offers one way to add sparkle to your wedding menu. Dip the rims of your champagne glasses in the glittery stuff, add a sprinkling to your cupcakes and desserts, or put a dazzling twist on the classic white wedding cake by teaming edible glitter with greenery to create a menu that looks too good to eat!
