7 Must-Haves in a Winter Wedding

Winter themed wedding is just as fun as summer and spring. The dreary winter shouldn't dampen your hopes of having a fun wedding. Of course, all the fun comes with great planning. Here are some of the ingredients that can make a bleak winter into a warmth filled one.

While planning a wedding based on season, you should go for colours that define the season. For winter, colours like whites, pale blue, pale pink, etc can create the effective illusion of wintery atmosphere with accents of warmth. Choose two pastel colour palettes. For a Christmas themed winter wedding, greens, reds and gold make the perfect trio. Avoid yellow, purple and violet. You can use these too if you combine these colours with silver or white.


The save your dates and invitations should speak of winter all the way. One way of doing that would be include designs from the winter environment such as snowflakes and snowman. You can go a step ahead and include dried flowers and winter leaves or plastic miniatures of winter flowers attached to the invitation.

Wedding favours

Chocolate Wedding Favors
Winter being Christmas time, you can center your wedding favours towards the Christmas theme. You can use snowflake, pinecone, Christmas tree and many other Christmas related items as favours. Chocolates, truffles and candies are popular. You can also extend the it to the ornaments, napkin rings, card holders and candles. Incorporating the winter theme in your wedding idea is the ultimate goal.

Embroidered tapestries, silver candelabra, sparkling tiny lights and hues of warm colours like reds, greens and bit of blue define the décor of a winter wedding. Use seasonal flowers and colour palettes that speak of Christmas. But take care not to overdo it and make your wedding avenue look like Santa Claus's headquarters!
Music and flowers

Pale Roses Bouquet
Wedding Centerpieces
Winters are synonymous with elegance and soberness. Gentle piano and traditional wedding music would suit the best. Flowers such as pale roses, orchids, lilies and calla lilies blend in perfectly with the theme of winter weddings.

The Cake

The cake is the star of the day next to the couple. Hence, even if everything else goes wrong, the cake needs to be perfect. Traditionally a wedding is white. Hence, accenting with pink, blues, reds and greens is a good idea. Tones of silver and blues are perfect for placing the cake on.
The Menu

Warmth imparting food is what you must think of while deciding your winter wedding's menu. Summer cocktails and mocktails might not work here. to add the warmth, start with whatever is seasonal. Winter veggies and fruits are said to produce cosy warmth. Hence, cook up a menu that surrounds the 'warmth' theme.
These are the must haves seven in a winter wedding accessories list. Start planning your winter themed wedding with these seven as priorities to start with.

Winter Wedding Decor - 4 Ideas For Your Winter Wedding

The winter wedding decor you choose for your big day can turn a boring, off season wedding into a magical event. All it takes is a little creativity and thought to put it all together.
There are several very big holidays during the winter season that can be used as a springboard for wedding decor ideas. You have the option of planning your entire wedding around a holiday, which many couples end up doing.
Here are four ideas for winter wedding decor:
Your Wedding Month
The month you choose will help to determine the decor you will use for your big day. December weddings can have a completely different feel than a February wedding.

The holidays bring people together, and the holiday season can create a magical atmosphere for your wedding day. Many religious houses and reception spaces will be decorated for the holidays which can help guide you when it comes to decorating for your reception.

Try to visit your reception space a year before your wedding to see how it will be decorated on your big day. Take notes of where they put decorations and what the style is of the decorations they use throughout the space.
If you aren't able to visit your reception space a year before your wedding, ask them how they typically decorate and if they have photos available from past years.
Winter Wedding Colors

Your wedding colors can play a big part in your wedding reception decor. You may not initially think that you have a lot of color options, but you really do.

There are many shades of blue that work well in winter, and red works great if you are getting married around Valentine's Day. Again, check with your reception space to see what colors might work best.
Winter Themes
A great starting point for decor is to choose a winter wedding theme. There are some really fun options to choose from for a wintry wedding.
Blue Ice Theme
Christmas Theme
Valentine Theme
Blue ice is a fun cold weather favorite that can warm up your guests. Christmas weddings can also be fun, and there is always the option of a Valentine's Day wedding theme.
A sure sign of winter is a snowflake, and they make a great wedding theme. Choosing an item, like snowflakes or hearts, can easily turn into a great wedding theme.
Putting It All Together
When you have chosen your reception space, wedding colors and winter wedding theme it then comes time to put all the pieces together. Doing your research and planning work up front will save you a lot of headaches when it comes time to execute your winter wedding decor.
Don't forget to rely on your wedding vendor for reliable help. Your florist, caterer and wedding planner are huge assets to have during the entire process.

Winter wedding planning can be fun and can incorporate many innovations in the theme of the wedding. You can see the brighter side; you do not have to doubt and worry about the weather and unexpected showers that cause a damper.

Planning a Winter Wedding

This is where you can experiment with the theme, create dramatic effects and innovate and improvise on the clothing. Planning during winters can also be a lot easier as you will be able to book the venues easily, which will help you manage the event without too much hassle.

The Venue

The choice of the venue largely depends on the number of guests you are planning to invite. The prime factor in this case should be the heating systems. You can look for a club, inn, any historic mansion or palatial place. Then, you need to find out about the seasonal decorations of the place. Many times, the place is generally adequately heated; yet you should be sure there are no chances of a draft that may cause a chill and discomfort to the guests. You must check the locality around the venue; if there is an unexpected increase in the snowfall, the venue should be easy to access and within reach for all your guests.

The Arrival to the Venue

Winter Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas

'Tis the Christmas season and time to be jolly! You can opt for a dramatic entrance such as white horse carriage instead of a luxurious car. The idea is to innovate and use this winter season to the fullest.


Winter Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas

Most of the places you plan to decorate may already have their own decoration for the interiors. In such cases, all you need to do is add some of your own touches. You add use winter accents such as holly and ivy leaves, pinecones, eucalyptus, Baby's Breath, wheat stems, pumpkin or squash gourds, fir or even some Christmas ornament balls. You can suspend some artificial snowflakes using a transparent fishing line from the ceiling. The tables can be covered with shimmering white tablecloths and can have silver candelabras holding white candles to add to the pure and pristine look. You can check your local store that stocks Christmas objects, to pick some inexpensive buys.

For the centerpiece you can try to add some bright red cranberries to a decorative bowl that if filled with water and contains floating candles. This would contrast well with the shimmering white tablecloths. Add some elements like a gingerbread house or even a decorative ice sculpture that are bound to elicit some 'oohs' and 'aahs' from the guests!


For the girls, this is the time where you can look super hot on a very chilly day. You can stick to your icy cold theme and use a lot of heavy lace and satin in your outfits. Although most women would love to go in for strappy or off-shoulder gowns, these may not prove to be suitable for the chilly weather. For such cases you may have to opt for delicately designed shrugs, shawls, white faux fur or velvet wraps and hooded capes that can look simply awesome when combined with a white wedding dress.

Add some exotic diamond jewelry to add to the cool look that's completely haute for the winter season. Winter formal dresses can be combined with some sexy white satin boots, which can be designed to match your dress. You can add drama to the wedding by opting for colors apart from the basic white, such as icy blues, shimmering silver and steel grays; that can also help you achieve the ice maiden look but in an unconventional way. Ensure that the couple looks well-balanced in terms of the colors used. Winter wedding dresses can thus offer you plenty of options to experiment and carry off different looks.

The Menu

Winter Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas
You can stick to the ice theme and incorporate it in the way the food is presented. Do opt for a white sumptuous cake in three tiers that can be decorated with snowflake patterns. Add some sugar sculptures on the table; use a snow globe and such other elements to add to the effect of the way the food is displayed. How about a white chocolate fountain to add to the excitement? The bottom line is to innovate and present it in a unique way.

Incorporate unique ways to decorate the invitations and create an interest in the minds of the receiver. I am hoping these ideas help you get the basic outline that will help you plan the wedding in the best way possible. This is the time you can let your imagination run wild and try something new from the traditional style of wedding!

Ideas For A Winter Wedding

Traditionally weddings are held in summer or spring, seasons of renewal and growth, where a bride in her beautiful white gown can be warm under the warmth of the sun. However, a winter wedding can be a just as beautiful background to a wedding as the summer. Imagine, white snow, the bright white icy sky and the romantics white fluffy clouds - it's just as picturesque as a summer's day.

Winter Venues

Winter Wedding Venue
When opting for an Xmas wedding, look for a venue that is warm and inviting. Churches can be cold and drafty, so make sure they are heated well beforehand. For the reception and/or wedding, look for a roomy Inn or country house with a large fire place - it will certainly look the part for a winter wedding - not to mention keep your guests warm. Alternatively, look for a venue to hire that will incorporate a Christmas theme into your wedding day venue, such as adding icy whites, with the contrasting greens and reds of the season.

Winter Wedding Décor

The beauty of winter is the contrasting colours, such as the deep green of the holly and the bright red of the berries. Bring the beauty of the season into your wedding by adding décor, such as holly, berries, candles, reefs and even a Christmas tree. You could further incorporate the 'winter' look into your bouquet or your hair accessories.

Winter Wedding Food

In the cold winter months, warm winter soups, smoked meats and roasted meats are a must have for a Christmas wedding. Use vegetables and meats of the season to evoke the feeling of the Christmas season in your wedding.

Winter Wedding's Transport

The common vehicle for a wedding is a limousine or car, yet, in winter a horse and carriage can just picturesque as you travel along the wintry landscape. Combined with chauffeur and ribbons, your transport will look far more glamorous and traditional than any modern vehicle can.

Winter Wedding Dress

In summer, brides can often get quickly overheated in their dresses, in winter it is the opposite. However, a seasonal wedding dress does not mean you have to put up with the cold and wrap up in your warmest fleece as soon as the reception starts. The main pro of a winter wedding is that you can add beautiful shrugs and throws over your wedding dress, keeping you warm, as well as creating an elegant and classy look.

Winter Wedding Rings

Gold's and silvery-white wedding rings beautifully accompany the winter season, and will forever remind of your beautiful winter wedding. Choosing a gold, white-gold or platinum wedding ring with a diamond will add to your rings that icy wintry look, evoking the beautiful clear landscape of winter. Or adding a green or red gemstone will evoke the rich colours of the Christmas season.
