Winter Wedding Inspo – Baby It’s Cold Outside!
Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but your winter wedding can be so delightful! Are you planning to have a winter wedding, but aren’t sure where to start? We’ve got the best ideas from bold, beautiful colors to the smallest winter-themed details! Follow along for ways to bring your dream winter wedding to life!
If all you want for Christmas is to get married, there are tons of creative ways to have a Christmas-themed wedding! To set the tone for the big day, Christmas-themed invitations are the way to go! For decor ideas, don’t shy away from Christmas trees, twinkling lights, or touches of mistletoe around your venue. All these elements make for a festive set-up and beautiful photos! To end the night, have your guests send you off ringing jingle bells all the way! Leave your guests with the perfect memory of your big day by having Christmas tree ornaments as favors. Ah, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
A barn venue is the perfect place to have a winter wedding. The natural colors, simplistic set-up, and cozy atmosphere will draw your guests into the truly magical feelings of winter. Plus, barn weddings provide the perfect backdrop for any color theme you decide to go with for your winter wedding!
“Silver and gold, silver and gold…” What a great color combination for a winter wedding! Color combinations for winter weddings can be bold to contrast between the mostly-brown outdoor colors cooler weather brings. Silver and gold, red and green, or deep blues and purples are great color schemes for winter weddings. Don’t be afraid to throw in sparkles everywhere to really make your winter wedding shine!
Cold Weather Florals
If you’re going with bold colors, don’t be afraid to go bold with your florals as well. In winter, we see a lot of red roses, or more natural bouquets with pine, white flowers, and pinecones. The boho-themed florals are also great for winter weddings. These include pampas grass, palm spears, and bunny tails! Be sure to mix in some deep greens as these are a winter wedding staple.
Winter is the perfect time to snuggle up with your loved ones, and during your cold winter wedding, your guests will want to do just that! Baskets of blankets can go a long way in providing a comfortable atmosphere for your guests, even if your winter wedding is indoors. Gifting your bridal party slippers will also keep them warm and cozy after the wedding ceremony and photos. Don’t make them dance barefoot after ditching the high heels! Once the night is over, provide mittens as favors for your guests. This is a cute and functional gift for your guests!
Wedding dresses come in many different styles, so for your winter wedding, what kind of wedding dress should you wear? Try long sleeves! You’ll stay warm throughout the night without having to add any extra layers. If you decide to get a dress without sleeves, a furry shawl would be a beautiful winterized accessory to wear on your big day. If you really want to feel like a southern winter bride, wear boots underneath your wedding dress! They’ll keep your toes warm and show that you’re a true southern belle. Lastly, sparkly accessories can go a long way in giving your wardrobe that wintery feel.
Food & Drinks
Last but not least, you’ve got to set the mood with food! S’mores, BBQ, soups, and pies will keep your guests warm from the inside out. For drinks, serve hotty toddys, apple cider, or have a full hot chocolate bar with all the fixin’s! This is only just a few of the foods and drinks you could serve at your winter wedding to spice things up!
Get warmed up as you say goodbye to your guests with a sparkler send-off! These sweet send-offs make for beautiful photos for any winter wedding, and they’re sure to light up the night in the best way!
