The darker months are usually the colder ones, take advantage of this and opt for something different. Long sleeved dresses look gorgeous as well as keep you warm. Accessories also play an important part, a cape or a faux fur shawl look great and can be taken off when indoors.
Winter can leave the skin looking dull and tired. It is important to prep your skin months in advance. Make sure to use a good moisturiser twice a day as well as a serum to lock in the moisture. Book yourself in for regular facials, as well as ensuring glowing skin, it will also give you some time to relax and forget about the world, just for a while. Head to award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia where we have the perfect Bridal Day Spa Package for you.
Never forget your lips, brides tend to focus on their skin and neglect their pouts. Lips crack instantly in the cold and it can sometimes take days to heal. Lipstick does not look good on chapped lips, so ensure to use lip balm throughout the day to avoid the parched look.
You hair will also be in need of some extra tender loving care and by booking in for regular cuts with your trusted hairdresser, as well as intense hair treatments to lock in moisture and add that extra bounce.
Try to choose your venues in close proximity to one another in order to reduce travel time as well as save guests entering into the cold to get from one place to another. The Ballroom and The Courtroom at Corinthia London are adjacent to each another which means that you can have your ceremony and Wedding Breakfast under one roof, and if you do want some fresh air, the Courtyard runs parallel to The Courtroom giving your guests the option of nipping outside.
Winter weddings are fun and different. You can play around with the décor, flowers as well as the drinks. Greet your guests with a warm drink on arrival such as mulled wine. This is a cute touch and will help add to the theme of the wedding as well as warm up your guests.
It gets darker much earlier in the winter, make sure to plan when taking photos in order to get some pictures in the light as well as at night time. A contrast of pictures is important and you will be happy that you took time to plan ahead.
With love from Corinthia London,
