6 Winter Wedding Ideas To Reinvent Your Winter Wedding
Winter is unquestionably a wonderful season to get married. Although it’s a less popular time of year for weddings—instantly making yours stand out—there are plenty of décor elements and trends that simply wouldn’t work during any other season. These winter wedding ideas and trends are what’s hot for winter weddings and will make you want to tie the knot during the cold-weather months.
1. Fur Coat Accessory
Staying warm doesn’t mean wearing just any winter coat over your wedding gown. A chic fur shawl or a fur stole, that will beautifully complement your gorgeous wedding dress, is the perfect winter bridal accessory to keep you warm in your gown. Getting married in the winter just to be able to wear one is totally worth it!
Perfect for fall weddings and winter weddings, offer your guests some warm seasonal beverages, like hot apple cider or a whiskey cocktail with cinnamon, as they walk in from the cold.
Another winter wedding trend is having a hot chocolate bar or s’mores bar instead of the traditional cocktail hour. This trend is also a great idea for winter wedding favors.
These winter wedding ideas will make your guests want to curl up with a steaming cup of a warm beverage. To keep portions in check, serve the beverages in espresso cups, so your guests won’t fill up on beverages before the party even begins. These mini mugs are also visually appealing.
4. Birch Branches and Twinkling Lights
Birch branches are a cost-effective and elegant way to decorate a winter wedding reception space. Adding shimmer and sparkle to the branches with crystals and candles instead of traditional wedding flowers complements the season and adds even more romance. It’s a great way to showcase a winter wedding theme, but in a subtle way!
5. Romantic Winter White Bouquets
White weddings have always ruled in winter. Bouquets made up of a mix of classic flowers in creams, ivories, and even very pale blush hues are very romantic and stylish. The combination creates an effect of gently modulated color and texture that is both elegantly monotone and lavishly romantic. Dressing up an all-white bouquet with crystal brooches also creates a stunning winter wedding bouquet.
6. Rich, Festive Red Centerpieces
Winter weddings are all about drama and so another winter wedding trend is massive floral arrangements. Rich, festive red centerpieces are perfect for cold-weather weddings as they fit right in. Decadent reds, such as roses, have become especially popular floral arrangements for winter weddings and offer an aesthetically rich and intriguing effect.
There’s no shortage of gorgeous possibilities that reflect the winter season. Don’t be afraid to mix unexpected seasonal elements with elegant neutral details and a hint of sparkle. Winter weddings can be irresistible and these winter wedding ideas are those that you won’t mind cozying up to.
