Unless you're a Florida or California bride (or you live in some other perfect area with a perfect climate), it's got to be pretty cold where you are! And despite the frigid temperatures and potential for another polar vortex, many engaged women are planning a winter wedding — as they should! Cold-weather nuptials are packed with potential for cozy, romantic details and stunning backdrops for pictures. The only thing that makes them more appealing? Wintry music! With so many lovely, warm-and-fuzzy songs about our snowy months out there, we had to curate a Spotify playlist of the best of them.

First off, if you want to get downright seasonal, then there are some amazing first-dance options! We included standards like Billie Holiday's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" and Sam Smith's rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Not into something so on-the-nose? Adele's "Make You Feel My Love" feels like a snuggly night in front of the fire, in song form!
Of course, our picks go beyond the first dance. Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is an ideal tune for the reception, while Nelly's "Hot in Herre" might literally usher in spring sooner than it was ready to start. Plus, we included classical songs for your processional, like Antonio Vivaldi's "Winter" and Edvard Grieg's "Nocturne," that will turn your ceremony into an enchanted moment.
Embrace the power of a winter wedding by spicing up your wedding playlist with songs like these and more. Sit back, pull on a warm sweater, and enjoy!
