It’s time to jump off the winter wedding hate train, not when winter is the most magical time of the year. Winter brings comfort and cosy vibes; the days are darker, so the night lights twinkle brighter than ever, the changing of the seasons gives us those warm, deep colours, and the best part is there are more available wedding dates, so you get to be a bit more selective.
Hosting a winter wedding allows you to embody the season completely! So, if you have been searching for those perfect winter elements, you have come to the right place. Here are the best elements to create a winter wonderland!
A neon sign brings much-needed warmth and light to your wedding reception and looks super cute.
Consider having a written neon sign:
- Mr & Mrs
- Mr & Mr
- Mrs & Mrs
- The (your new last name)
- A couple hashtag
- You and your partner’s first names (Amy & Eric)
Create the most magical winter wonderland using artificial trees as statement décor elements. Wintery trees include White-flowered trees with frosted snow tips, weeping cherry blossoms, stick trees (no leaves) or pine trees (perfect for a Christmas in July wedding theme).
Incorporating dried fruit elements brings a pop of colour to your guest tables! Try dried orange slices, limes or lemons. To elevate the winter vibe, combine your dried fruit slices with a bundle of cinnamon sticks and a fresh rosemary sprig.
There is nothing wintrier than a burning flame; it brings warmth, adds mood lighting and is a symbol of romance. Use a mixture of small and large candles on your tables and around your bridal table (check with your venue, as they may need to be concealed in candle canisters).
They also look unreal in your wedding photos!
Jewel Tone Tableware & Glassware
Are you looking to add richness to your bridal table & guest tables? Consider using jewel-toned plates, place cards, glassware, napkin rings and napkins. Jewel tones include Sapphire Blue, Emerald Green, Ruby Red, Amethyst Purple and Citrine Yellow.
There’s something about having fairy lights as your statement lighting at your winter wedding. It is the perfect element to set the mood for a romantic wedding. Wrap them around beams, suspend them from the ceiling, and have them trickle down or have them draped horizontally from the top. Were you looking to go one step further…? Entwine your fairy lights into a statement floral or foliage hanging display for that wow-factor moment.
Winter is commonly paired with rustic décor, so it’s only natural that we suggest having mismatched chandeliers fully embody a rustic winter vibe. We are talking different shapes, sizes and, dare we say it…different colours.
