There is something undeniably cozy and romantic about the winter season isn’t there? And everyone loves a winter wedding when all the magic of the season is condensed into one day celebrating all things love. So now that you’ve decided to tie the knot in the winter months, here are our top five themes for the perfect winter wedding.
Winter Wonderland Themed Wedding
You can’t go wrong with the classic, timeless and ever-festive winter wonderland themed wedding. Think fir tree trimmings, natural evergreen foliage floral arrangements and seasonal tablescapes adorned with pinecones, cinnamon sticks, and candles galore. Enhance the cozy, winter woodland ambiance with homely wood accents throughout the décor and warm woolen blankets on chairs to keep guests feeling snug
EXTRA TOUCH: Carry the theme through to your wedding day look, with an on-trend wedding cape to wear over your dress to keep warm.
Color-Coded Wedding Theme
Each year, the winter wedding season brings with it a rich palette of new color trends for couples who want to wed in style. For a winter wedding, it’s always nice to bring in deep, sumptuous colors such as crimsons, golds, and greens. Popular hues this winter include rose gold, dark wine, and dusty blue; while for winter 2020, colors such as burgundy, emerald green, persimmon and navy blue are set to be on trend.
EXTRA TOUCH: Consider matching your color scheme with your wedding outfits or the engagement ring.
Rustic Ski Chalet Themed Wedding
When it’s cold out, there is nothing more comforting and cozy than a rustic, log-cabin-inspired interior to bring that much needed winter cheer. Opt for handmade table decorations, fairy lights and countryside inspired menu. And because a rustic wedding is typically characterized by its more relaxed, natural and homespun or handmade touches, this can end up being a great budget wedding theme that doesn’t need to cost you a fortune to recreate.
EXTRA TOUCH: A rustic wedding can also be a great option for those looking for greener or more eco-friendly wedding options. Look for only locally sourced, reused or upcycled products throughout.
Vintage Winter Wedding
If you and your partner are old-timers at heart, or simply nostalgic for the glamour of decades gone by, why not go for a vintage wedding this winter. Vintage furs, lace, diamond encrusted jewelry, and feathers make the perfect wedding gown embellishments for the colder weather. And if you want to really commit to the theme, add a touch of vintage whimsy to your wedding day menu, with Gatsbyesque cocktails and canapes, or champagne served in ornate china tea-sets.
EXTRA TOUCH: Go retro with your wedding makeup by rocking a winged eyeliner and a red lip for that pop of color.
Let it Snow, White Wedding
An all-white wedding is simple, elegant and ideally suited to the winter wedding season when snow and ice accents can be incorporated into the décor. Use fake snow, frosting on windows and touches of sparkle to assimilate the wintery weather outside. And if you’re worried about the theme looking too cold or stark; replace overly bright whites for ivory or cream to add a touch of warmth to an otherwise strikingly eye-catching wedding theme.
EXTRA TOUCH: Add some cotton balls into your bouquet, wreaths and centerpieces to make it look like snow for that extra wintery touch.
