It goes without saying that flowers are a must when it comes to weddings. There are thousands of varieties to choose from, which can help you to set different tones throughout the ceremony. The smell is also important as you want to choose a floral arrangement that everyone will love.
Indian weddings are best known for their bold colours, so choosing large and decorative flowers in bright colours can really set a great atmosphere for your special day. So, go for colours like red, green and yellow, which would also add a traditional feel.
Candles would add a beautiful traditional, earthy and a vibrant touch to any winter wedding. You can go for uniquely shaped candles for your big day, or go for a mix of large, long and tea-light candles.
Having them dotted around your wedding venue or the mandap area will add magic to the ceremony and will look spectacular in the evening time. Fairy lights can also be put up either as little strands of LED's or hidden lights in lanterns or fake flowers. Fairy lights are a safer option if you have lots of kids at your wedding.

This is a nice way to thank your guests for coming to the wedding without having to thank them all separately throughout the day. And it also gives your guests something to tuck into whilst they wait for the meals to come when it is time for the food. You can have bite-sized chocolates, mini-kababs on sticks, paan or bite-sized muffins at each table.
By bringing the outdoors in, we mean having an indoor wedding with the aspects of an outdoor one such as plants, trees and beautiful archways or sculptures.
This is an effective way to enjoy the “outdoors” without facing the ever changing weather. Plants can be a beautiful way to add greenery to your affair, a colour that goes well with winter weddings. It is also something that would sway your heart if you are an environmental person, who loves natural surroundings.
Alternatively, you can bring the indoors out and have a beautiful outdoor wedding. During the winters, the day time can be warm enough for a perfect outdoor ceremony to take place.
For an outdoor wedding that would take place in the evening, you can have bonfires around to keep your guests warm and to add a traditional element to your affair. Apart from bonfires, you can place old-style angithis (brazier) at your venue.
