Unique Winter Wedding Ideas

Winter weddings are usually indoors.  It can be a challenge to find unique ideas geared toward winter weddings because the wedding industry is so geared towards the popular spring and summer wedding seasons with fall as a close third. Winter weddings can be quite beautiful in any circumstances.  There are some beautiful standard options for winter wedding planning. These are just some out of the ordinary ideas with a focus on winter weddings.


Elegance and streamlined jewelry and accessories are trademarks of winter weddings.  Capes and fur muffs are also popular.  Consider something bright and bold to break up the winter color scheme. Bright red ribbon chokers, sprigs of holly stuck into up-dos, or quirky matching scarves and mittens for the bridal party for photographs.


Use an unexpected bright summery color as the main color for the bridal party and the rest of the wedding.  When paired with something simple like white, silver or gold this pop of color allows winter brides to choose any color for their wedding despite the season.


Chocolate covered cranberries, a kit to make hot chocolate with a recipe card, roasted chestnuts and hand warmers make unique wedding favors that are perfect for a wedding held in the winter. Snow globes containing a bride and groom or wedding chapel are also pretty choices.  Cookie cutters and recipe and ingredient kits are great winter wedding favors.


Consider a horse drawn carriage to carry the bride and groom away from the wedding if the location permits it.  It is a gorgeous touch for a winter wedding.


Polka dot décor makes for a classy winter wedding. Ribbons can be used in so many places instead of flowers.  Try ribbons grouped in place of a corsage or artfully placed to decorate the wedding cake. This can also save a lot of money. Gingerbread house centerpieces or cupcake towers provide nice desserts as well as looking gorgeous.  Bowls of peppermint sticks and chocolates can also be made to look gorgeous and double as favors.

Think outside the box for winter weddings and don’t feel like there is a certain way they need to be done!
