Cyprus Winter Wedding Ideas
Many couples look to the seasons for inspiration when deciding on a wedding theme and colour scheme. If you’re getting married abroad, you might find choices are a little trickier, but not if you decide to wed in Cyprus. A winterdoes not mean ice, snow and cold weather. It has a sub-tropical climate, with temperatures reaching into the 20’s all year round. Therefore, traditional themes like Winter-Wonderland are perhaps inappropriate.
Here are 4 Cyprus winter wedding ideas that are perfect for your special day in the Island.
November – Beautiful Berry
A delicious winter berry palette of burgundy, cranberry, pomegranate and plum, mixed with cream. This is a great alternative to a classic Autumnal theme – bright and fun, with seasonal undertones that work perfectly for a wedding abroad. Vibrant, soft berries will give you an entire theme for invitations, decorations, table settings, desserts and drinks. Choose deep, warm shades that wouldn’t really work in Spring or Summer. Grey, Charcoal and Fig are great complementary colours.
December – Festive Christmas
If you’re getting married in December you could go for a traditional Xmas theme of red, gold, green. Poinsettias make stunning centrepieces, or how about miniature Christmas trees decorated with tiny ornaments? You can use wreaths, tinsel, Christmas lights, bells, baubles, ribbons, mistletoe. When it comes to your menu, you can enjoy turkey with some exotic stuffing and Cypriot honey, almond and walnut pastries.
January – Simply Natural
Take inspiration from nature in January with a green and ivory palette. It’s elegant, romantic and fresh. Plus, you can have lots of fun with garlands, pine cones, ivy, twigs. Take a walk through the Cedar Valley in the Troodos Mountains when you arrive in Cyprus for inspiration (or to forage for materials). To add warmth and a hint of glamour; use rich gold accents – a touch of ribbon detail, a dusting of gold glitter. Or incorporate a deep red for a pop of colour.
February – Metallics
February is one of the coldest months of the year in Cyprus; you can reflect this with a shimmering, metallic colour scheme. First decide whether you suit cold or warm colours best. If your colouring and skin tone suit cool hues – choose silver and white, with metallic dark blue or frosty purple. If warm shades are your thing – choose gold and ivory, with metallic peach, bronze or brown. Ask your guests to coordinate by wearing something either cool or warm – this way your photos will look great.
