Easy Winter Wedding Ideas You'll Love
Are you planning a winter wedding? Tying the knot in January, February, and March comes with a number of benefits. Since only 5 percent of weddings are held in the deep winter months, your guests likely won’t have competing weddings to choose between and you can snag some amazing prices with vendors who are working through the offseason.
Another winter wedding plus? You can incorporate super-fab, unique ideas that wouldn’t work with a summer wedding theme. We’ve scavenged Pinterest, wedding sites, and polled our own crew to discover the best winter wedding ideas to make your nuptials as unique as you!
Blanket Wedding Favors
Even if your ceremony is indoors, a blanket that matches your wedding colors is the perfect winter wedding favor. Guests will especially love the thought if your ceremony is held outdoors. Craft a sign and load the blankets into baskets or bins to match your theme, or label them individually and have a blanket in each guest seat.

Winter Napkin Décor
Use natural elements to enhance your winter theme, like pine, cinnamon sticks, and twine. These personalized woodland theme napkin nametags are the perfect enhancement to a winter wedding place setting.

If you can stand the chill for a few short moments, your winter wedding photos will be amazing. With glistening snow, tall pines, or a fresh layer of frost as the backdrop, your pictures will be Pinterest worthy on the first take.

Winter Greenery Boutonniere
Craft the groomsmen boutonnieres and bridesmaid bouquets with natural winter vegetation and greenery. Pinecones, blue-spruce branches, and holly can all be woven into your wedding floral arrangements. Accent the boutonnieres and bouquets with pops of your wedding color to bring the look together.

Light It Up
We’re totally on board with a winter wedding that doesn’t have a Christmas theme (in fact, we kind of dig it), but you can incorporate clear hanging lights throughout your venue to keep a warm, romantic feel. Skip the traditional red and green décor and stick with a classic white light in lanterns, along the walls, and within your center pieces.

Hot Cocoa Bar
Add a whimsical touch to your cocktail hour or dessert portion of the meal with a hot cocoa bar for guests. They can choose their favorite toppings and warm up with the rich beverage. Guests will love creating their own winter drink.
