The ideas for a winter themed wedding can be endless to create your dream wedding day. Let’s dive into planning your winter wedding!

Winter Wedding Cake

When it comes to winter a lot of brides think of a classic white cake. You can also go bold with some glitter and darker tones in the wintertime! You can also explore some natural winter elements such as holly, ornaments, star designs, snowflakes, evergreens, and poinsettias! As well, you can also have a very basic cake that mimics snow and winter with very elegant white decorations.

Wedding Photos with Winter Nature

Winter can be a gorgeous backdrop all on its own! Creating winter wedding photos can be as easy as incorporating nature and winter right into the photos. For example, you can take some snow and throw it up as a celebration photo. Other examples can include kissing under falling snow, and walking in a forest with trees covered in snow. And for those adventurous couples ideas such as winter activities such as snowshoeing, skiing, and skating pictures. If you’re getting married in the city then you take pictures on a bridge overlooking a frozen pond, in front of some holiday decorations downtown, or just walking along in the city sidewalks and streets as snow falls.

Winter Table Settings

Using winter décor items for your wedding table setting decorations is the perfect way to infuse your theme throughout your wedding. Depending on your wedding vibe and theme there are plenty of ideas to help compliment it. When it comes to nature you can use evergreen bundles, poinsettias, holly, carnations, roses, pinecones, and calla lilies. Tree stumps can be used as beautiful place settings and coasters. You can use colours such as reds, whites, greens, dark blues, greys, gold, and silver to add a pop of colour to match winter. Romantic tea lights are always a great addition to any table setting and would work well with your winter theme decorations!
