If you are having a winter wedding, then there are many different ways that you can use crystals to add little sparkle to your day.

Overview

Often, brides opt to have their wedding in the summer. This is usually because of the warmer climate in many parts of the world during this season. However, the winter can be a magical time for a wedding and opens up plenty of opportunities in terms of themes. One possibility is the use of crystals. These are a sparkling addition to any wedding. Crystals also depict and symbolize many objects that are associated with the winter season, such as frost, icicles, raindrops and snowflakes, and add a classy touch to any wedding. Here are some suggestions of how crystals can be used in different aspects of the wedding

Accessories and Jewelry

One of the most obvious uses of crystals in a wedding is for them to be a part of the jewelry and accessories. A bride who wants crystals to be a central part of her wedding is likely to opt for a tiara that is encrusted with crystals as these will glisten against her hair. Coordinating jewelry is a good idea and can be found with either silver or gold as the base metal. If preferred, hairpins or a crystal encrusted slide can be used instead of a tiara, and this may depend on the style of the dress. Similarly, if a veil is being worn, one that has crystals sewn into the fabric will look fasten and the crystals will capture the light and gently reflect the colors around them.

Bridal Attire

Every bride looks forward to being the center of attention on her special day and her dress is an integral part of this. There are countless different styles and designs of dresses available and many of these have crystals on them. If you find a plainer style that suits you and you still want to incorporate some crystals into the design, many bridal shops will happily customize the dress for a fee. Another alternative is to have the dress custom made from scratch so that every aspect of the design and finish meets your needs.

Flowers

Crystals can be included in many aspects of the wedding other than what is being worn. The bouquet, church flowers and flowers that are carried by the attendants or are part of the decoration of your function room can all include crystals. This will add some extra sparkle to compliment your flowers and will look like morning dew or frost on your floral arrangements. The overall effect will add to a winter themed wedding.

Decorations

If you wish to extend the theme of your wedding beyond the ceremony and into the reception and function area then there are many different things that you can do. Crystal table decorations and other adornments, such as chair covers, wall decorations and place names can all incorporate crystals into their design.
