Introducing the cosiest winter wedding decorations to help you plan your winter wedding!
Winter Tablescapes and Settings
What do you need to make your tablescape wintery? This real wedding inspiration is here to answer! Plenty of greenery and foliage is always a staple. Some pops of red and gold add that festive feeling. If you're having a proper Christmas wedding some baubles, Christmas crackers, and warm cosy lighting are also essential.
One of the main things you might worry about with having a winter wedding is the weather. It might be chilly and with everyone in light dresses and suits, they might feel the cold. But we're here with a simple solution. Blanket basket favours! Give out some nice cosy blankets to keep your guests feeling warm throughout the afternoon. We're sure by the time the evening comes around your guests will be warmed up from the reception dance party or whatever delicious cocktails or alcohol you might be serving.
Winter Wedding Decorations - Christmas Trees
If you're really looking for cosy festive vibes, a Christmas tree is the obvious answer! Look at how pretty these pictures are. Wherever the tree is placed, it really elevates the winter vibes in your wedding photos. Why not go for some mistletoe too? A kiss under the mistletoe would make for an amazing wedding photo!
You can get into the winter spirit with your wedding drinks, too! Instead of a traditional cocktail hour with some summery Aperol Spritz, why not serve some mulled wine? Similarly, jazz up your prosecco with a 'pimp your prosecco' station. Let guests add some fruit, purées or anything else they fancy! Or for an alcohol-free option, serve some hot chocolate! One of the weddings below had a s'mores station, which is such a perfect idea for a winter wedding!
Cosy Winter Lighting
Fairy lights, fairy lights, and MORE fairy lights. For a true cosy winter wedding, fairy lights are essential. Adding some taper candles on your tables also helps to create that warm golden light when it gets so dark outside. It's so romantic! If you love cosy lighting, our wedding lighting article is perfect for you.
Winter Wedding Cakes
Your wedding cake is not only a yummy sweet treat but it acts as decor, too! A wintery wedding cake with some white icing, powdered sugar, berries, or red flowers is such a nice touch. You could also go for some gingerbread, Christmas pudding, mince pies, or other traditional winter desserts to serve around your wedding cake!
