Winter Wedding Idea: Wreaths

Wedding Style & Decor

If you're having a winter wedding, you might be looking for easy, elegant ways to decorate your celebration. Wreaths add such festive flair to the holiday season and would also be the perfect décor addition to any winter wedding. Hang them on the doors to your ceremony venue or DIY miniature wreaths to serve as place cards — check out our eight favorite wreath ideas for a winter wedding.

Ceremony Entrance (above): A pair of wintry wreaths adoring the doors to your ceremony is such a warm way to welcome guests.

Ceremony Backdrop: Another idea would be to suspend an oversize wreath behind you and your groom to serve as a simple ceremony backdrop.

Flower Girl: Instead of a basket of petals, have your flower girl(s) walk down the aisle wearing a pretty wreath of winter greenery.

Your Dog: Ask your florist to create a wreath-like "collar" for your furriest attendant.

Reception Chairs: Make your seats at the reception stand out with a pair of elegant boxwood wreaths.

Place Cards: This charming place-card wreath is fashioned from sprigs of fresh rosemary—get the DIY instructions here.

Wedding Cake: Embellish the tiers with fresh evergreen boughs and pinecones; you can also ask your florist to create a wreath to surround the base of the confection.
