15 Unique Ideas for the Perfect Winter Wedding

Winter is one of the most romantic times of the year, filled with hot drinks, cosy evenings, tasty treats and festive decor. It’s also such a special season to have your wedding.

Whether you’re planning a full Christmas-themed celebration with seven-foot trees, sleigh-rides and mulled wine, or simply a wintry bash with white details and a nod to the chilly weather, this time of year is just ripe with inspiration.

Bring it bursts of colour in the snow, or strip it back with a bare woodland palette, keep it cosy for your guests, or dig into some cocoa and cookies. Here are 25 ideas to help you plan the perfect winter wedding

1 - Chilly Cheer

Have fun with your winter wedding with lots of seasonal signage, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, “Be Merry and Bright”, or “joy To The World” are some of our favourite festive phrases.

2 - Mulled Twine

Pair together cinnamon sticks and winter berries, for a chic and organic napkin ring alternative.

3 - Fir Feature

Fussy florals are for summer and spring. Swap your flowers for something more rustic and simple, like natural evergreen foliage.

4 - Pinecone Place Setting

Frosty pinecones are the classic winter adornment, scatter them about your wedding for an instant (and cost-effective) seasonal touch.

5 - Let It Glow

Create a really cosy atmosphere at your wedding reception with low lighting. Use fairy lights and lots of candles and a touch of sparkle.

6 - Touches of Twig

Enhance the wintry feel of your wedding with pretty woodland details throughout your decor.

7 - Mug Love

There’s nothing cosier than a hot drink in wintertime. Treat your guests to a personalised mug wedding favour so they can remember your big day every time they make a cuppa.

8 - The Getaway Car

Add a cool Christmassy touch to your wedding day transport, with gifts on your roof, or a festive wreath around your “Just Married” sign at the back. If you’re looking for something a little more dramatic, you can always make your exit as newlyweds in a reindeer pulled sleigh!

9 - Cosy Cookies

‘Tis the season for eating serious amounts of cookies – why not treat your guests to some sweet treats with a festive feel?

10 - The Season for Snuggling

Give your guests cosy blankets to snuggle up, a thoughtful idea for any outdoor elements of your winter wedding day.

11 - Hot Chocolate Bar

Your guests will be so grateful for a hot drink during cocktail hour – try a Chocolate bar, mulled wine or a hot brandy cocktail.

12 - Scents of the Season

Good quality scented candles can be expensive, create your own winter wedding day fragrance with fruit and foliage of the season.

13 - Al Fresco Coffee

No matter what the weather, guests will inevitably gather outside your church or ceremony venue to offer their congrats. Treat them to a hot tipple before they move on to the reception, or keep your bridal party toasty between photographs.

14 - Sprigs of the Season

Such an easy way to add wintry adornments without much effort, gather some berries, twigs, and sprigs of fir and tie them to your order of service booklets or menus.

15 - Confetti Blizzard

Colourful confetti looks beautiful against a blanket of snow, making for a fun and magical photo opportunity.
