Winter weddings offer a unique and festive atmosphere that sets them apart from the more popular spring and summer seasons. More and more couples are loving the winter season’s crisp air, glistening snow and cozy vibes to celebrate their wedding day.
If you’re planning a winter wedding and are looking for inspiration, we’ve gathered some of our favorite ideas that you can use for your frozen elegance wedding day! Each is paired with the best winter wedding invitations that complement the look.
Winter Wedding Party Inspiration
Winter blues and grays are the perfect hues to capture the essence of a winter wonderland. When planning your winter wedding, think of varying shades of blue, from icy pastels to deep navy for your wedding party. Pair these with metallic accents of gold or silver to add an extra sparkle.
As we always say – setting the tone for your wedding day starts with your invite, and this watercolor snowflake wedding invitation coordinates perfectly with this elegant wedding look. We love the blue watercolor snowflakes and silver accents on this invitation. And you’ll love how affordable it is! It’s part of our collection of Wedding Invitation Sets with RSVP Cards that include a response postcard for free!
Winter Wedding Cake and Décor Ideas
Winter weddings can give you an opportunity to make your ceremony and reception details even more enchanting. Snow-inspired cakes, elegant table settings, whimsical twinkle lights and cozy pine trees are just some of our favorites. If you’re brave, hold your ceremony outside in the snow for an everlasting memory!
Your cake and desserts can be simple in winter white. Add some sparkle with snowflakes, metallics or a cute cake topper. Use a flurry of candles on your reception tables to add an instant glow. If your wedding is near the holidays, a variety of Christmas trees with twinkle lights around your reception venue can really bring it all together. Most venues will likely already have their holiday decorations up while hosting your event!
If you want to invite on the cheap, our Seal and Send wedding invitations are the best! They are easy to mail, fun to receive and above all else – easy on your budget! We love the icy blue and snowflake details on the Winter Flurry Seal and Send invitation. It’s one of our favorites!
Winter Wedding Flower Ideas
While some might think winter lacks floral variety, there are plenty of stunning blooms and greenery that can make your winter florals truly enchanting. Incorporate white roses, hydrangeas, anemones and other frosted blooms just to name a few. Work closely with your florist to select the blooms and greenery that best align with your vision and color scheme.
Our floral wedding invitations are some of our most popular designs. The enchantment and beauty of the Winter Blues wedding invitation will stop you in your tracks! The watercolor floral artwork is simple, stunning and the perfect way to introduce your winter-themed wedding to your guests!
