Every wedding season, traditionally summer and early fall months are the most coveted months to get married. However, a lot of couples do get married in the winter time, whether its to save money or because they love the idea of a winter wonderland on their wedding day. Either way, winter weddings can be really fun and really beautiful. Here are a few ways to celebrate the season on your big day!

Pretty lights!

You can think of winter season without thinking about twinkle lights! Tiny white or amber twinkle lights is an elegant way to give your wedding a seasonal feel and you can incorporate them anywhere from the centerpieces, to the tables, and around the venue. Pier 1 Imports has very affordable LED string lights in a few different colors.

Seasonal Center Pieces

When I think winter I think holiday season, white, sparkle, red, pine, etc. You can give your wedding a winter feel by incorporating seasonal centerpieces. Notice how I say seasonal as opposed to Christmas. It’s your wedding day, so you want your wedding to be timeless and classy. Instead of Santa and Reindeer, stick to more classic themes. Your wedding will still look like a wedding and be timeless in photographs.

Signature Flavors

Winter is such a cozy time of year! Incorporate flavors into your day that makes your guests warm and fuzzy. One great way to do that is in a signature beverage! A fun cocktail with cranberries, boozy hot cider, or mulled wine, are a few of my wintertime favorites. Why not incorporate a hot chocolate bar into your dessert service or sweets table!

Escort Cards

Ok…as much as i lean toward classic traditional notes, I love to see unique, out-of-the-box escort cards. I think its one of the areas of your wedding where you can get truly creative! Christmas Gift Boxes, Mini Ornaments, Snowflakes…so many options. I really adore these pine cone escort cards! Simple and seasonal. Spray a little sparkly, fake snow and you’re good to go!

Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle!

I love seeing winter weddings with sparkle and there’s a way to incorporate sparkle without it being overwhelming. I’m a huge fan of glitter table runners, and overlays. A lot of linen companies have sparkle linen you can rent in a variety of colors like black, gold, silver, white, and fun colors like blue!
