Planning a Winter Wedding

Updated on April 6, 2015

Winter is often a very under rated time of year for weddings. The weather is cold; holidays keep everyone busy. On the other hand, winter offers so many great ideas for a wedding theme, and who wouldn't like the excuse of a honeymoon to get away from the cold weather?

The Apparel

Winter is about dressing warm. Following their tradition of keeping feet warm and comfy, the Australian company Ugg has designed a line of footwear specifically for the big day. Brides can keep their feet toasty with sequins, bling, or furry flip-flops in the style of Ugg.

The bridal party may add a touch of Victorian class with capes or fuzzy, hand-warming muffs. Dresses are usually long. Color pallets range from white to silver to blue. A holiday themed wedding may also incorporate deep reds and greens.

Embrace the power of the snowflake with your jewelry. There are many options for earrings, necklaces, and hair pins that showcase the beauty of the snowflake, and you can find something for any budget.

The Food

Winter food is all about indulging and comfort. A hot cocoa fountain warms the soul, and a punch bowl of eggnog adds a touch of the holidays. Candy canes provide color and a flavorful treat.

Traditional winter comfort foods get a makeover for wedding receptions: broccoli-cheddar, potato-cheddar or tomato bisque soups, small grilled cheese finger sandwiches, mac and cheese balls, and baked potatoes. Add little touches to these everyday treats such as garlic croutons for the soup, chunks of tomato or ham for the grilled cheese sandwiches, asiago cheese or crunchy, garlic bread crumbs for the mac and cheese, or cheese for twice baked potatoes to make the meal complete. Add a fun twist with a mashed potato bar for guests to choose topping as they would at a sundae bar: cheese, chives, sour cream, gravy, etc.

The Decor & Favors

With the holiday season comes twinkling lights. Fake snow, glitter, confetti, candles, and holiday ornaments are readily available. Winter is the perfect time of year for wedding d├ęcor! Centerpieces beg for sparkle; the more, the better. A centerpiece can be as simple as a Ball or Mason jar with white holiday lights and iridescent tinsel or as extravagant as a floral centerpiece with poinsettias, holly, pine boughs and candles.

      Thanks Partypail! I think Winter is underrated when it comes to weddings, but it is like they were made for each other.

      Great idea for winter centerpieces. There is definitely something about winter that can bring a special, magical feeling to a wedding. I also love how you've suggested serving comfort food, what a perfect fit!
