How to Throw a Winter Beach Wedding

Winter weddings are completely magical and super romantic, plus the beauty of living in Australia is that our winters are relatively mild. With daytime temperatures of around 15 degrees on average, it is no wonder that we have seen an increase in popularity of the winter beach wedding.  

Thinking about hosting a winter beach wedding? Throw the winter wonderland wedding of your dreams with our simple tips and tricks to throwing the perfect winter beach wedding.

Invest In Winter Accessories

Keep the chill away and look stylish at the same time with some chic winter accessories. A faux fur stole, a cape, a veil or even a long-sleeve wedding dress are all good ways to keep warm.

Don’t forget your bridesmaids! Make sure to choose long sleeved dresses or cover ups to keep your bridesmaids warm on your big day.

Don’t Forget The Winter Beauty Prep

With the cold weather comes the dry skin, so keep your skin moisturised in the lead up to the wedding. Invest in some good hydrating makeup, and keep a chapstick in your clutch on the day.

Winter Wedding Colours

Decorate in warm, rich, burgundy, black, red and gold tones. Create ethereal tablescapes and centrepieces with candles, greenery, driftwood and seashells. Think cosy decorations, faux fur, glittering metallics and seasonal foliage.

Have Just One Venue

Save transport time and time spent out in the cold by having your ceremony and reception at the same venue. Say ‘I do’ in Babalou’s stunning indoor ceremony space, and then watch the space transform into a beautiful reception venue where you and your guests can celebrate into the night.

Winter Catering

Keep your guests warm with hearty winter food options. Babalou’s 12 hour braised lamb shoulder with black beer jus, served with truffle mash and wilted greens, or the whole roast sirloin, rosemary and garlic potato hash, sautéed broccolini, and sticky onion jus are the perfect winter warmers for a beachside wedding.
