Winter Wedding Colors
When it comes time to select the colors for your wedding reception in Swansea, MA for the winter months of December, January, and February, make sure to embrace the colors of the season. Black-and-white weddings are popular in the winter, as are color schemes that include silver, blue, burgundy, and off-white shades.

Once you choose the colors that you want to use, everything else will fall into place. You can start shopping for invitations, decorations, bridal party attire, favors, centerpieces, cakes, and anything else that you might want to include.
Secure the Venue
As soon as you decide that Venus de Milo is the place for your winter wedding reception, make sure to put down a deposit. Our popular location fills up, especially for weddings and weekend dates for gatherings. Ask the social event coordinator about availability for rehearsals, bridal showers, and anything else that you might want to host on-site. It can be helpful to do everything at one location, making it easier to get the decorations set-up and ready for the big day.
Send Out Invitations
It is important to send out your invitations to the Swansea wedding reception as soon as possible to get an accurate head count on your guest list. Venues typically charge “per head” based upon the RSVP notes that you get back from your family and friends. Stress the importance of getting RSVP cards back as soon as possible to avoid anyone getting left out or over-paying for guests who weren’t planning on showing up. Your invitations should state the date, time, location, and directions to the venue. They should include details about wedding registry accounts and any requirements for attire, such as formal, semi-formal, or casual. The invitation should reflect the overall theme and color scheme of the wedding reception in Swansea, MA to set the tone for the celebration.
Work with the social event coordinators at the Southeastern Massachusetts event venue as you start hiring outside vendors, such as bands, DJs, emcees, photo booth companies, bakeries, or anyone else that you need to pull off your special celebration. Some facilities have restrictions regarding outside vendors, so it pays to know what to expect ahead of time. Others will have a pre-approved list of vendors to make it easier for guaranteeing insurance and references for the event. You don’t want to trust your special day to just anyone, so it is important to make sure that the vendors you hire will deliver as promised.
For a Winter Wonderland theme, you might be thinking snowflakes, sparkled fabrics, and a general snow and ice theme. However, there are lots of things that you can do to make it a winter scene without going overboard. Stay away from party stores and look online for specialized wedding decoration providers. Think “outside the box” for wedding favors and look for unique options that coordinate with your theme for the Swansea wedding reception. Ask the venue about specialty lighting that will enhance your decorations and choose flowers for centerpieces that embrace the colors and blooms of the season. Not only will they look great with your theme, but they will also be more affordable than flying in specialty flowers from the west coast or some island.
