Seasonal switches

Q. We've rescheduled our June wedding for the end of the year and are feeling anxious about having to rethink the flowers and other details to fit with a winter theme. Where do we start?

A. Jo Hicks says: Jo says: Changing season for your wedding can feel daunting at first but my advice is to stick with what you like. For example, if you were planning a soft and romantic, blush-rose summer wedding, with a few clever tweaks your vision can be reinvented to provide a romantic mid-winter feel. Adding contrasts with deep red and burgundy tones, swapping foliage for richer deeper shades of greenery and incorporating berries to your décor can create an air of seasonal abundance. Candles will also add warmth to the tables. Your florist will be able to advise on seasonal flowers with similar textures to those you were hoping for and can help you retain many of the elements you first envisaged.
