Styling your wedding can be as daunting a decision as is choosing the perfect wedding dress. Below are a few tips on what styles are out there based on seasons. The season in which you choose to have your big day on can greatly influence a lot of aspects to your wedding.
Winter: June, July, August
Depending on where you are looking to have your wedding will be a big factor if it is in winter. A White Winter Wedding is the classic way to go. If you are having your wedding abroad of course as here in Brisbane, something is very wrong if it is snowing.
Winter is great time to take advantage of the weather. Beautiful clear skies will make your Wedding photos pop.
Brick and Gold are great colours and textures to suit the season, think wooden and the contrast on a white table cloth. It is all about contrast, giving the brain and eyes something to drool over. Things like antique ‘Viking’ candelabra’s and gold cutlery is a good way to go down the contemporary route.
The cons to a winter wedding, is the wardrobe choice for your dress is a lot more limited.

Recommended White Flowers: Candy Tuff, English Daisys.
Summer: December, January, February
When thinking of a summer wedding think vibrant, intense colours. Think sleeve-less gowns and warmth. What venue will you choose? Brisbane is great for inside and outside style venues where you can have the choice of either. Think about saying your vows in the warmth weather and taking your first dance in a ball room. Or how about going abroad for your big day with a wedding on the beach.
We all know everything goes well with summer. Think more towards bright colours when thinking of your flowers. A stunning vibrant bouquet will pair magnificently with the centre pieces.

It’s not too cold and not too warm, the perfect temperature to have your wedding in a garden and what a better time to do it then when all the flowers and plants are blooming.
Bird baths on the outskirts of the reception or ceremony can be fun to incorporate nature into your big day. Think trees and wooden structures, the brown and green contrasts go great when a white wedding dress is in front of it. Garden & maze photography can be like out of Alice in wonderland!
The colour theme of a spring wedding is best to stay around the pastels, pale, pasley & light colours. Very gentle and soothing. The green from all the trees and will be a big pop so you need something to even it out.
