It’s All in the Details by Corine Brosseau
Winter, though chilly, can be one of the most beautiful times of year to have a stunning and memorable wedding celebration. There are so many seasonal touches you can add to make the event an elegant one. In the collage below, we’ve put together some of our favorite wintry wedding details and how you can use them to add a certain something special to your wedding day.
- Tabletop: For your place settings, winter white dishes edged in silver make an understated look that is still sophisticated and timeless. Mercury glass centerpieces or votives give your tables the sparkle of fresh fallen snow in the moonlight.
- Fashion: For the bride and her bridesmaids, check out our Fashion Fever post on how to winterize your wedding wardrobe. For the groom and his ushers, pinecone boutonnieres give a masculine, yet elegant, woodland feel to a winter wedding.
- Favors: Evergreen seedlings wrapped in burlap are an unexpected, eco-friendly idea for the perfect wedding favor. For a more urban setting where planting a tree isn’t ideal, try mason jars filled with hot cocoa makings! Tie a stick of peppermint of cinnamon around the jar with a piece of twine to add the perfect finishing touch.
- Invitations: There are so many great options for winter wedding invitations. For a woodland feel, try embellishing your invites with snowflakes, birch trees, or evergreens. We fell in love with the understated beauty of the simple wreath invitations from OnceWed and had to include them in our collage above!
- Place Cards: Pinecones make the perfect place card for a winter wedding! They are inexpensive and still adorable. The warm brown of a pinecone can match any color scheme you choose to go for. For even more of a wintry look, sponge a little bit of white paint on the tips of your pinecones to give them a snow-dusted appearance.
- The Cake: Adorn a winter white cake with pinecones, fresh flowers, and juniper berries to give it a woodsy feel. Simple ribbon in your wedding colors can pull the cake together.
- The Bouquet: There are plenty of wintry floral options. Red roses add a dose of drama. For a more woodsy look, plenty of greenery and berries do the trick. White roses and anemones allow the woodsy touches to really shine.
