Woodland décor is a classic winter wedding theme, and for good reason: its simple, rustic beauty is both easy to accomplish and adaptable to a variety of colour palettes, flowers, and other adornments.

Embrace the modern, rustic vibe of barely covered branches artfully arranged into archways and other decorations. Choose a winter wedding venue with fireplaces aplenty to set the room aglow with warm, cozy light. Add silver or gold accents to offset the rustic feel with timeless elegance.

Illuminate your venue with beautiful mood lighting that perfectly aligns with your winter theme. Use a variety of candles, such as votives, tealights, pillars, tapers, floating candles, and more to add an elegant, romantic ambience to any space.

Fairy lights are a popular choice for creating an enchanted, atmospheric vibe that will suit any venue. They’re especially lovely when complemented by woodland décor, adding a touch of magic to any reception.

Use Bold, Seasonal Colour

Winter is the time to explore bold, vibrant jewel tones that perfectly suit the season. While ruby reds and forest greens are popular if you’re going for a holiday theme, you can also use shades of sapphire or navy blue, lapis or amethyst purple, and even golden yellows to beautifully decorate your venue with vivid, winter-themed pops of colour. Bonus: jewel tones lend a regal ambience to any space.

Nothing says winter like the smell of fresh pine! Add seasonal greenery to your venue and to your bouquet to take your winter décor to the next level, incorporating elements like mini pine trees, holly leaves, winter berries, and pinecones. If you’re feeling the holiday vibe, you can even add a sprig of mistletoe overhead!

Create the Perfect Winter Bridal Bouquet

During the winter season, many of the most popular flowers will be out of season. However, this is an excellent opportunity to get creative with seasonal blooms and greenery that suit your dress and winter décor perfectly. Flower options like anemones, amaryllis, roses, and narcissus are beautiful blooms that suit the season. Don’t be afraid to supplement your bouquet with small branches, pinecones, pine cuttings, or sprigs of holly, willow, and eucalyptus. Using a creative florist, they can put that extra-special finish into your wedding with inventive winter bouquets.

Embrace Winter Wedding Dresses

The best winter wedding dresses embrace a frosty feel while keeping you warm and cozy during the cold weather. Think layers of elaborate lace, silk, beaded embroidery, and big, elegant tulle skirts. Long sleeves are a natural choice, but if you opt for short sleeves or sleeveless, be sure to have a warm cover-up. Faux fur is a popular choice for cover-ups that fit perfectly with your winter theme.
