Festive Winter Wedding Ideas
Planning a winter wedding can be a magical experience. Wintertime is when everyone feels festive and ready to party. The air is crisp and full of hope for the year ahead. It’s the perfect opportunity to bring your dream winter wonderland wedding to life. To help inspire you and your guests to deck the halls, we’ve complied our favorite festive winter wedding ideas.
Over the River and Through the Woods
Planning a dreamy snow-filled or frost capped wedding starts with finding a magical setting for the season. Whether you book a rustic venue out in the country or a ballroom in the middle of the city, playing up the setting of the season can be as easy as highlighting key wintery elements in your décor. You don’t need a lodge on the side of a mountain to bring in the dramatic feel of wintery woods. Adding in rustic branches and green garlands throughout your décor are the perfect way to add the magic of winter to any setting. You can also add shimmer and shine to your design to envelope the excitement of waking up to a frost-covered landscape. Set the tone of your day with wintery wonderland elements meant to bring in the magic of the season.
Jingle all the Way
‘Tis the season to spread the holiday cheer. Adding festive touches to your special day is a great way to embrace the season and make your wedding day merry and bright. Festive signature cocktails can lend to the merrymaking and theme of the day. Metallic mixed into the
décor, table settings, and/or stationery adds a celebratory touch that’s perfect around the holidays. Twinkle lights are an especially magical sight and can be used throughout your theme to transform any space into a winter wonderland. Offering special ornaments to be hung on trees as place settings or wedding favors bring a personal holiday element to your special day that can be enjoyed throughout the years.
Baby, its Cold Outside
While the weather outside might be frightful, your wedding day can be oh so delightful. Give guests warm blankets or mittens to stay cozy, set up a snowy photo-shoot as a first look or post ceremony. Have an outdoor bar with festive spirits and hot cocoa to bring your guests outside during the cocktail hour and/or reception. Ride off into happily ever after in a horse drawn carriage complete with wool blankets and fur wraps. Embracing all the season has to offer is sure to give your guests a magical experience that’s unforgettable.
Having a festive winter wedding is all about cheer and bringing your loved ones together to celebrate your union. No matter how you choose to celebrate the day, being surrounded by your closest loved ones as you say “I do” will make the it the most wonderful time of the year.
