‘Tis the season for winter weddings! 

Winter is the rarest season for weddings. This means that if you’re planning a winter wedding, you will have less competition for dates, save money on services, and you can make the wedding unique if you’re willing to stretch your creativity.

Here are a few ideas for how to use this merry season to create a wedding like no other.

  • Cozy Attire:  It’s cold outside, so brides need proper layers to combat the winter chills. This doesn’t need to be a boring winter jacket, though. Dress up a warm, layered winter look using accessories and clothing that fits your style. These are just a few ideas for how you can incorporate cozy, warm clothing into your wedding look:
    • Trade heels for a warm pair of boots
    • Drape a shawl over your shoulders
    • Accent your dress with faux fur capes or muffs
    • Substitute the traditional veil for a warmer, fashionable hat
    • Add edge to your style with a leather jacket
    • Create an unexpected look by adding a warm scarf 

  • Let It Snow:  One of the major benefits of winter weddings are the beautiful photos that come from bright, snowy days. You cannot find more flattering light, and the snow falling creates added interest to your photos. Be sure to take some photos outside if the conditions are right. You can even use some cozy props like a blanket to add some fun your photos.


  • Warm Up Your Reception:  Continue the cozy theme throughout your wedding into the reception. Help your guests feel the warmth:
    • Serve warm drinks at the bar, like Baileys hot chocolate and other coffee drinks. To make it even more cozy, serve the drinks in a patterned mug
    • Provide blankets that guests can use to cozy up
    • Include hand warmers in guest favors Choose a dessert that will warm up chilled guests, like s’mores that guests can roast over a small fire.

  • Festive Décor: Use the season’s beauty to inspire your wedding décor:
    • Candles as a primary light source to warm up the room
    • Natural wood signs or decor
    • Deep pine greens as table runners or in centerpieces
    • Pops of red poinsettias will add depth to your wedding color palette
    • Twinkle lights spread across the ceiling or walls to give photos that beautiful wintery bokeh lighting
    • Pine cones in centerpieces or as holders for table settings

  • Turn the Season on its Head:  If a festive wedding mood isn’t your forte, don’t rule out winter weddings just yet. A wonderfully unexpected approach to winter weddings is to go the complete opposite direction with your wedding theme. Use tropical influences in your wedding planning decisions. Serve tropical drinks with umbrellas and use warm, sunset colors for your wedding palette. This theme will surprise your guests in the best way. Whatever direction you choose, commit completely.
