Winter 2023 Wedding Trends

Winter weddings have always held a special charm. The crisp air, glistening snow, and cozy atmosphere make it a magical time to say “I do.” As we step into the end of 2023, we’re seeing a delightful array of trends that promise to make winter weddings even more enchanting. From seasonal decor to fashion-forward choices, here are the top winter wedding trends for 2023 that will help you create a celebration that’s both timeless and trendy.

Rust Wedding Color Palette

This winter, we’re going to see a big increase in rust-toned colour palettes. Think gorgeous, indulgent stationery, rust velvet bridesmaid dresses, rust accents within your bouquet, it’s going to look so elegant yet cosy! Rust pairs so beautifully with olive greens, dusky blues & rosy pinks. Just imagine how gorgeous these tones would look in contrast to our industrial-style venue!

Intimate Weddings

Are the days of big white weddings over? Predictions for this winter’s wedding trends say more and more people are opting for a smaller guest list of just their closest family and friends. We think this is pretty special for a cosy winter wedding, and what better place to have an intimate wedding than The River Mill?

Casual, Cosy Comfort Food

Grazing boards are a really lovely way to make dining more relaxed and sociable. But even better, imagine a roast dinner grazing board to combine those relaxed vibes with everyones winter favourites. Think roast beef stuffed Yorkshire puddings, lashings of roast potatoes dipped in gravy and succulent slices of roast turkey. Or go all out and serve up a three course roast dinner with all the trimmings!

Statement Floral Installations

Make a bold statement this winter with oversized floral installations. Think cascading bouquets as a backdrop to say your “I Do’s”, breathtaking centrepieces on your dining tables and statement bouquets for the bridal party. Check out our recommended suppliers list for more inspiration!
