It’s the season to create fabulous decorations for a winter wedding! Do you want your dress to go with… well, everything? First decide exactly what your perfect winter wonderland would look like. Do you want fake ice inside and decoration all in white? Or will there be some red berries and poinsettias to liven up the room?
Whether dreamy or chic, there are many ideas to make a unique winter wedding. And there is something creative in the emptiness of winter, as if you started with a blank page. The writer Pietro Aretino once said: “Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.” Get creative with these 15 ideas to decorate an unforgettable winter wedding.
1. Avoid Christmas colors
A red and green color theme might be tempting, but use white, ivory, and silver for a simpler, more elegant, and less festive look.
2. Have them eat white cake at the winter wedding
Look for a cake filled with silver glitters, a sugar bow, edible glitter powder, and melting “ice” crystals on the sides. Divine.
3. Light the candles
For extra cozy decorations, your centerpieces can include tall, romantic candles instead of flowers. Your photos will have a soft candlelight glow in them.
4. Flower power at the winter wedding
If you choose to use flowers, select the ones that are fluffier. Everything in white is ultra stylish. You can decorate the flowers with crystals or glitter too.
If you both fell in love on a slope, use a ski theme. Put two miniature skiers on the cake, on the invitations, and give your reception a winter cabin feel with ornate vintage skis and warm spirits and sheets.
6. Indoor snow
Bring the outdoors inside with replica snow and bare trees with white branches and crystals. Spray bare branches with white spray and use them to recreate the feeling of a winter forest.
7. Channel Scandinavia for the winter wedding
For an elegant yet cozy feast with a Scandinavian feel, bring a touch of the outdoors inside by hanging white painted branches with tea light lanterns and green plants. Use wooden containers as decorations and use red and white for the flowers. Very Nordic
8. Festive decoration background
Do you need a beautiful winter background for your photos? Stand in front of one of the Christmas spots in your town for the ultimate romantic atmosphere.
9. Ice blue
If you want some color in your winter wedding décor, ice blue is absolutely gorgeous paired with silvers and whites. Try snowflakes hanging above the dance floor.
10. A hint of berries
Red berries are the perfect accent for a white winter wedding. They can be placed in glass candle holders, in small white containers or tied in piles on the edges of the chairs.
11. Target lights
It is the season of love and celebrating our loved ones. So putting Christmas lights on your wedding is at the top of the list for perfect winter wedding ideas.
12. Red accents
Is all in white too simple for you? Consider red for a dramatic contrast and inject it through your winter wedding decor with red flowers or other vintage items like poinsettias, berries, or red trees.
13. Bone-colored bridesmaids dresses
If you insist on being the only one in white, but want a white theme, look for richer whites for the bridesmaids’ dresses, such as cream, ivory, and even silver.
Even if your wedding is before the first snow of the season, snowflakes can look cute on invitations, centerpiece candles, and scarves.
15. Sweet jewelry at winter wedding
These gorgeous hand painted chocolate mint Santorini Gems from The Frosted Petticoat look good enough to wear. Gather them together and tie them to a white ribbon and watch your guests say “oooh!”
