Imagining yourself walking (down the aisle) in a winter wonderland? Winter is a magical time of year for a wedding. It’s a time to get cozy and gather family around you, create a festive and opulent occasion, or escape to a peaceful snowy landscape. Bring the beauty of winter into your celebration with these color combinations and venue ideas.
What’s the inspiration for your winter wedding?
December, January, February
|Your inspiration||Your venue||Your colors|
|A cozy log cabin||A barn, lodge, or wooded estate||Ivory, tan, and red, or cinnamon, ivory, and wine||A winter wonderland||A ballroom, an airy event space, or a lodge with a view||White and silver|
|Forest foliage||A ballroom, barn, or wooded estate||Evergreen, ivory, and gold|
|The holidays||A mountain resort, ballroom, theater, or lodge||Evergreen, burgundy, and white|
|Winter harvest||A winery, ballroom, or barn||Plum, sage, and gold|
Evergreen foliage and serene snowscapes are what make winter special. Whatever venue you choose, you can capture the essence of the season with fragrant evergreen garlands and frosty metallic accents. Jewel tones create a luxurious atmosphere for formal events, or you can look to winter produce and spices for color inspiration for a rustic look. Think cozy for your favors and after-ceremony treats: blankets, gloves, mulled wine, and cocoa will warm hands and hearts.
