Winter is a wonderful time of the year to exchange the ring with Christmas not far behind and the church already decorated with the bell waiting to toll in full harmony. Matched with the right elements a winter wedding could get magical and intimate. Check out our winter wedding ideas, from winter wedding flowers to winter wedding favors.


Winter wedding ideas

Winter weddings, in keeping with the season should favor ideas that are warm and cozy. Even vanilla scented candles, chocolates in personalized boxes or edible items like tea tins should be perfect strategies for winter wedding along with other holiday themed favors. Winter weddings have some distinct advantages over spring or summer ones.


  • The cost of a wedding in winter is estimated only about half of the traditional summer wedding cost. This is simply because of the fact that winter is considered 'off wedding season'.

  • This is the time of the year when halls, restaurants, church and other locations of choice are easily available. Since not many get married in winter, these popular locations are available at a reduced cost.

  • Since family and friends have by far fewer social commitments during this part of the season, they will be free to attend the wedding in full force.

Winter weddings also suffer certain specific disadvantages. The disadvantages of a winter wedding could easily be overcome with proper planning and creativity.


  • Bad weather with cold and snow is very much part of the winter season. The weather might play havoc and stop family and friends from attending the wedding. Alternatively, a mild weather can also ruin wedding plans, if one is envisioning a beautiful snowy landscape or arriving in a horse drawn sleigh. In the absence of snow, these could fall flat.

  • Holidays are prime travel time for friends and family folks and it might become expensive for those who are on a holiday and have to travel long distance to make it to the wedding.

Venue for the winter wedding

An intimate winter wedding could be ideally held at an inn with a fireplace. A grand extravaganza would require a historic mansion or a private club. Seasonal decorations would be cost economical as many sites would already be heavily decorated. Check for heating systems during the winter months which is highly essential for although winter could bring in the sparkle of falling snow, it can also be raining and heavily cold.


Winter wedding colors

Winter season brings with it memories of icy blue and metallic shades of silver and gold. Also winter whites that are almost creamish with tint of yellow shades stand opposed to the brighter and crispier hues of summer. Navy, eggplant and deep browns are also natural colors of choice during winter. Red and green are often the colors for a classic winter Christmas wedding. It is most likely that a Church or a wedding site would always stand decorated in red or green. Other colors in the palate would include burgundy, forest green, silver, gold and cream.


Winter wedding flowers

Roses in rich shades with sweet peas and lilies are the winter wedding flowers. Stephanotises which bear a resemblance to the snowflake are appropriate seasonal flower choice. Although traditional roses and lilies are available year round, for a varied or different flower arrangement, advance planning is vital as the availability of flowers during winter stands limited.


Still, with dusty miller, eucalyptus in silver dollar and baby blue and white flowers such as roses, football mims, crocus, stephanotis and lilies one should be able to provide a silver and elegant sheen to the flower decorations. For those who prefer a brighter bouquet, red roses and holly and pine tree greenery should be available. Ornamental berries and tulips which are seasonal and less expensive choices during winter can also be used in the flower bouquets.


Alternatively one can think of interspersing crystal adornments that could add glamour and shimmer to the bouquets. A mirrored platter with pillar candles and sprigs of holly should be romantic enough. Center pieces of bowls and ornamental vases should add elegance to the occasion. Pots of poinsettia with a ribbon trim can be an attractive center piece as well. Fake snow with small flower arrangements and ceremonial candles are available aplenty; these lend an additional special touch to the wedding ceremony and are all time favorites.


Winter wedding favors


Winter wedding favors are unique from hot chocolates to mini bottles of champagne, from personalized wedding ornaments to snow flake embellished gel candles to delectable and soothing cocoa and cappuccino mixes. In act, inexpensive homemade favors like spiced chocolate mix or even cocoa mix with marshmallows should be hot enough for the season!


It is important remember the time of the year while searching for winter wedding favors so that they do not look out of place. For instance, if the guests celebrate Christmas, an ornament can make a perfect favor.


A holiday cookie cutter with a cookie recipe attached with names of bride and groom with the wedding date with the lines 'truly cut out for each other' could be a tongue in cheek option. A snow globe with the bride and groom inside is typical favor option for a winter wedding. Even place cards with snow flakes on them can work as wedding favors; attractive and personalized enough. There are cool items like ice cube place card holders, winter wonderland snow globes and ornament place card holders.


If the wedding is held amidst sparkling icicles and gleaming snow covered hills, then you can go in for a range of spectacular snow-themed wedding collection of delightful favors to warm up the winter. A snowflake gel candle favor, snowflake candle holders, snowflake bookmark or key ring wedding favor, snowfall exquisite glass photo coasters, snowman or snow woman tea light, snow flurry flocked glass ornament place card or photo holder, personalized holiday mint packs or a handcrafted and hand painted wedding cake ornament are some of the wedding favors which the guests will adore. These are the favors that can delight a winter theme at an affordable price and the guests are sure to go home with endearing memories.


  • The bride and the groom can travel by horse or carriage to the reception complete with fur to keep them warm.

  • The wedding reception could be decorated with a miniature and life size Christmas tree.

  • An ice sculpture would look stunning on the wedding hall.

  • Crystal bouquets should imbibe that extra wintry feel and last forever.

  • Hot chocolate or warm coffee should help to keep the guests warm during the ceremony.
