Winter is coming! And whether you’re having a winter wedding or not, you can still appreciate some of the hottest trends that are about to be everywhere this season. Between cakes, flowers, dresses and decorations, we’ve covered it all in preparation for the cold-weather celebrations to come. Check out our list of the best winter wedding ideas, trends and inspiration, below.
Finding the right dress, shoes and accessories is one thing, but finding the right decor for a winter wedding is a whole other world. (How do you keep it romantic and elegant without going all “Frosty the Snowman” up in this place?) We turned to Pinterest to source the latest trends, naturally. Peruse these as you plan your snow-dusted nuptials (and check out our Wedding Inspiration board for more ideas).
For winter weddings, opt for natural, seasonal details to showcase warmth. Start with the venue: Choose one that has elements in place that fit with the look you want, such as hardwood floors, rock work or a fireplace. Then layer in fairy lights and candles to personalize.
Get creative with your place settings and add charming woodland textures. Then spruce up the table with pinecones, greenery and candles for centerpieces.
For outdoor ceremonies, let the surroundings serve as the backdrop and consider accents like a Southwestern-style runner to add character. Just be sure to give your guests a heads up to dress warmly.
Fill mercury vases with votives or baby’s breath (yes, it’s back in style) to add height and texture to tables. (We found these cute versions at Pottery Barn.)
Handmade Escort Cards
Here’s a fun DIY: Make rustic place cards yourself with pinecones to hold the paper in place.
Dried lavender and subtle striped napkins against antique dishes make for an incredibly sweet French-inspired wedding vision. Try adding crystal glassware for a touch of formality.
All White Everything
From rose petals to birch trees, a monochromatic color scheme nods to the season without becoming a caricature.
Tie it all together with a gorgeous wreath of seasonal foliage. Leaves varying in shades of green with seasonal berries are as beautiful as a bunch of flowers.
