From a snowy wonderland to rich evergreens, it's easy to be inspired by the beauty of this frosty season; these exquisite winter wedding ideas will certainly charm you with their majestic nature. Don't let the stress of planning the perfect wedding get in the way of experiencing the lovely (and chilly) elements of winter. There are so many trendy options that stem from this season that will inspire you to prepare for your big day in style. These beautiful winter wedding ideas will come together to help create the wedding of your dreams.
1. Hot Chocolate Bar
Many people will agree that one of the most enjoyable aspects of a wedding (aside from basking in the love of the newlyweds) is the dessert menu and open bar. A cool way to include traditional winter wedding ideas into your day is to feature a fully stocked hot chocolate bar; additionally, you could also serve eggnog as a sweet little twist. There is no better way to keep warm while also enjoying delicious beverages.
2. Snowflake Decor
When it comes to winter wedding decor, snowflakes are always a great option. From snowflake table runners to snowflake lights, don't be afraid to channel the weather outside in this tasteful (and fun) manner. Nothing will scream winter wonderland louder than decking your venue all out with these sweet decorations.
3. Metallic Color Palette
Using gold or silver in your wedding color palette will instantly add a touch of elegance to your overall theme. When set against white tablecloths, these metallic tones will sparkle immensely.
4. Apple Cider in Apple Cups
It will be hard for your guests to say no to these delectable winter treats. This is one of the most creative and exciting ways to incorporate the joys of the season into your wedding. I love how versatile apples can be; I've served ice cream and apple pie inside of the fruit on many occasions and could not have been more pleased with the response.
5. Glitter Pine Cone Centerpieces
While some may tire of the common use of pine cones in winter wedding themes, I think that adding glitter can really revamp this look. I'm nerdy enough to embrace all clichés and tell you to let your centerpieces shimmer as brightly as your love for one another.
6. Floating Candles
The best part about decorating your tables with floating candles is that you won't have to break the bank to do so. This could easily turn into an awesome DIY project with your special wedding party; all you need to get started are glass vases or bowls in different shapes and sizes.
7. Crystal Tablecloth
You will be amazed by how flawless your table settings look when the light catches on your fabulous tablecloths. Using crystal tablecloths will make it seem as if you spent a ton of money to achieve this glamorous look! You can even layer sparkly silver tulle over a white tablecloth for the same effect. What can be more elegant and timeless than a shiny wedding hall?
8. Evergreen Place Settings
If you really want to tie natural elements into your big day, try evergreen place settings. You can always dress them up by tying a ribbon (that matches your color scheme) to the bottom to really make them stand out.
9. Mug Wedding Favors
Lastly, I find this to be one of the sweetest ideas for wedding favors. I think that giving out mugs or mason jars (either featuring a cute or custom design) is a great way to thank your guests for coming out to celebrate in the cold weather. You could also pair it with hot cocoa mix to continue the party from the hot chocolate bar.
The winter season is definitely a perfect choice for a festive and merry wedding. What are some of your ideas on how to enhance a winter wedding? What are your future wedding plans?
