Winter weddings can be so unique and magical. We love the bold colors, winter decor, and cozy additions to keep your guests warm and comfortable. From the decor to the music it is entirely up to you as the couple to decide how much you want to embrace this season but here are some magical winter ideas to make your day truly special. Remember to tailor these ideas to your personal style and preferences to create a winter wedding that’s uniquely yours.
Set the tone for your wedding and design invitations that reflect the winter season. Think snowflake motifs, cool blue tones, or silver foil accents. Add some glitter and sparkle for an extra wow factor.
Don’t forget that any other wedding stationery should match your invites, such as menu cards, escort cards, programs, and any other signage. So once you have chosen your theme, be sure to incorporate this throughout.
Embrace the beauty of winter by incorporating seasonal elements like pinecones, evergreen branches, and red berries into your wedding ceremony and reception decor.
Or you could create a winter wonderland with white and silver decor. Faux snow, icicle decorations, and crystal accents would give your venue a magical, frosty look.
Soft lighting from candles, fairy lights, and lanterns can add a cozy and romantic ambiance.
Guests would be sure to appreciate a cozy lounge area complete with plush seating and blankets for guests to relax and socialize in comfort.
For a show-stopping moment, you could also consider having ice sculptures as part of your decor at an outdoor wedding venue. They could be something meaningful to you as a couple, your initials, or other artistic designs. Illuminating them with colored LED lights would make for a stunning effect.
This is a great time to utilize the bolder, rich colors that reflect the season. Colors such as deep burgundies, forest greens, navy blue or metallic shades like silver or gold are great choices.
Pinterest is a great place to turn to to gather inspiration on winter wedding color palette ideas.
Have fun with your attire and accessories in this season. For the bride and bridesmaids, consider faux fur stoles, shawls, or muffs to stay warm and add an elegant touch to your attire. Sparkles are usually big in this season so consider outfits that shimmer or glitter, or even encourage your guests to dress this way!
Seasonal flowers like amaryllis, poinsettias, hellebores, or white roses would be great options to incorporate into your floral arrangements. These blooms can add a touch of winter elegance to your wedding. Added evergreen branches like pine and cedar can complement these florals for a rustic and natural look.
Craft a winter-inspired menu featuring hearty dishes like roasted root vegetables, comfort food, and warm soups. Serve a signature winter cocktail, too. Some great ideas can be found here.
A hot cocoa bar would be the perfect addition to your winter wedding and a great way to keep your guests warm. You could feature a variety of toppings like marshmallows, whipped cream, and flavored syrups. You could also consider offering other warm drinks like warm apple cider (spiked or not) or mulled wine.
Select winter-inspired songs for your ceremony and reception. You can even have a live string quartet or a pianist play classical winter compositions or even Christmas music if desired.
For a romantic, snowy exit guests could throw biodegradable snowflake-shaped confetti for your ceremony or reception exit. It’ll add a whimsical touch to your celebration.
The addition of dry ice or a snow machine could also be a fun way to create a magical, dreamy, wintery atmosphere.
If your venue allows, a sparkler exit would be a memorable way to conclude your winter wedding.
