December on Shropshire Petals Calendar

Frosty mornings, mulled wine, roaring log fires and wrapping up warm instantly make you think about an English winter. Winter is a magical season to get married. It can be challenging, trying to plan around the weather, yet at the same time it is very romantic.

No matter what the weather, you can create the perfect winter wonderland wedding using confetti. Shropshire Petals share their winter confetti colour inspiration to make your day magical…

Colours and Textures

Silver and ivory is a popular confetti colour combination for a winter wedding. Winters Morn is perfect for this theme as it is a beautiful mix of Lady Grey and Icing Sugar. When thrown it will look like snowflakes falling over you.

For some added texture, add some larger petals such as Daisy Daisy hydrangea petals. Wedding guests love to throw confetti, so why not make it fun by setting up a confetti bar for them to choose the petals themselves.

Blue is another colour perfect for winter weddings, as it represents crisp blue skies and ice. Choose from Frosted Blue delphinium, Blue Bird cornflower and Duckegg hydrangea petals to create a stunning icy confetti mix.

Mix one or all of these frosty blue petals with a neutral colour, such as Lady Grey, Icing Sugar delphinium petals or some larger Daisy Daisy or Buttermilk petals, for a delicate winter confetti mix.

Christmas Weddings

If you’re marrying at Christmas time, why not choose a Christmassy confetti mix? Combine red, ivory and green with confetti such as Lady in Red rose, Icing Sugar delphinium and Envy Hydrangea petals.

Add a splash of gold by including Ginger Snap or Honey’b in your confetti mix.

A winter wedding wouldn’t be complete without a silver wheat wreath hung on the door of your venue to welcome guests to your big day. Place several wreaths around your venue, and use some matching wheat on tables with a sprinkle of your chosen confetti on your tablecloths for a rustic winter look.
