How are you preparing for your big day?

While pinecones, snowflakes, candles, and white are classic winter wedding motifs, don’t feel like you have to use all or any of them at your winter wedding. While many people opt for seasonal colors and accessories or ones which reflect the holiday season, your wedding can be anything you want. Here are some outside of the box and beautiful ways to put classic twists and turns on the perfect winter wedding of your dreams.  

Broaden Your Wedding Color Horizons

Many getting married around Christmas consider adding red and green color schemes to their wedding. However, if this is overdone it can take the focus away from the actual wedding itself, and make it feel more like Santa’s workshop than a romantic celebration. Opt for winter glamor instead.

Inviting Invitations

Winter weddings are usually held indoors due to the cold weather, making them ideal for black tie ballroom receptions. The invitations are generally heavy cardstock with a rich and dark font. For a twist, consider frosted Plexiglass invitations with icy white ink.  

Get Bold With Beautiful Flowers

While there are a number of traditional winter wedding flowers, you don’t have to choose these if you aren’t in love with them. Traditional winter wedding flowers include red roses, calla lilies, and amaryllis, but there are a number of other options out there. Big and full flowers can create a dramatic impact. If you want your floral design to make a statement, perhaps consider white hydrangeas or soft ranunculuses.

Centerpieces That Make A Statement

While most weddings make use of candles, winter weddings tend to be overloaded with them. Do more with ice-carved vases full of tall winter white branches and elegant hanging crystals are just one way to reflect light and create something truly breathtaking for your most important day.

Escort Cards

While obvious winter holiday motifs make it clear that you are having a winter wedding, your guests only have to look outside to know that. Instead, opt for silver and elegant winter colors and crystal ribbon.

Listen To The Music

While a classical pianist during dinner is a go to for an elegant reception, you may want to consider switching it up with something that is more true to your personality. Many are opting for an a cappella groups to sing their favorite pop songs.  

A Dazzling Cake

Holiday themed cakes can be pretty, but they are ultimately not very original. White vintage style cakes can play up the season in an elegant and eye-catching way, especially if they are dusted with silver powder.


Everyone loves food based wedding favors, but you don’t have to stick with cookies or truffles if you don’t want to. Consider roasted chestnuts, chocolate covered cranberries, or other unique flavors which evoke the season.
