Sure, everyone may want to tie the knot in the spring and summer, but there are many perks to having a winter wedding date. First, they're usually more budget-friendly since less brides are clamoring to marry during the colder months. Plus, guests won't likely have to choose between your celebration and another wedding invite. But chief among them are the unique style details that work best for wintry nuptials!
These pretty details are the perfect way to transform your wedding into a winter wonderland without making your reception feel like a holiday party. The trick to making winter details feel formal and refined is to use them wisely and sparingly. Pick and choose the ideas the work best in your space and don't feel required to transform every wedding detail into something seasonal.
Some of our favorite ways to add a hint of the festive season to your big day include evergreens, hints of metallics (without going overboard), and cozy knits. From favors and escort cards to centerpieces and ceremony decor, there are endless ways to highlight your holiday-esque wedding date. Consider vintage ornament escort cards that double as favors or a signature drink in a fun mug (think: spiked hot cider or a make-your-own hot chocolate bar). Looking for something more statement making? Also, using translucent materials in unexpected ways—like vellum or lucite for escort cards and menus—feels icy and wintery without being overtly holiday. Similarly, a gorgeous display of lush wreaths will drive your winter theme home but still look tasteful.
