Making the Most of Your Winter Wedding

Written by on November 23, 2012 in Relationships - No comments | Print this page


With rich seasonal colors and romance in the air, winter weddings are a special time of the year with many unique themes to choose from. Whether your wedding resembles a winter wonderland or a specific holiday theme, you have a variety of innovative options to make your wedding special.

Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event and should be exactly how you had always imagined. Hold an outdoor wedding and overcome the elements with space heaters and tents or enjoy a winter-themed snow indoors completed with fake snow and roaring fireplaces. Below are a few fun themes to consider, depending on the date of your wedding.

New Year’s Nuptials

New Year’s is all about new beginnings (and sparkle!) New Year’s can be a great opportunity to throw a glamorous wedding with shimmer and shine. New Year’s is symbolic of a fresh start to life, making this a perfect time for your wedding. Choose colors such as silver and navy blue to create a classy and fresh theme for your wedding, and of course add a few sequins here and there for the finishing touch.

Christmas Romance

Christmas is possibly the most romantic time of the year. With beautiful, deep colors such as red and green, you can make your wedding theme a gorgeous and memorable event. Christmas is a time to feel thankful for all you have, and what better time to throw a wedding to show your love for your significant other? Choose seasonal flowers such as poinsettias to enhance your Christmas theme.

Winter Wonderland

Holding a wedding in the winter doesn’t mean you have to be stuck indoors. You can enjoy a beautiful outdoor winter regardless of the temperature and elements with the right tools at your disposal. By throwing up some tents, heaters, and floors, you can form your wedding into an outdoor extravaganza, just like you always wanted while still enjoying all the perks of a winter wedding without the cold weather. Light up the trees around you with holiday string lights and add some lanterns to create a winter wonderland feel. Choose whites and light blues to accent your theme.

Winter is a wonderful time to throw a wedding, so don’t be put off by the cold and dreary weather. Whether you opt for a New Year’s wedding, Christmas wedding, or a fun theme such as a “Winter Wonderland,” the most important thing about planning your wedding is to have fun! In order for everything to be perfect is to keep in mind that this is your special day.
