Winter Wedding Themes

Styling a winter wedding is a lot of fun as it allows a plethora of options for choosing colours and themes. From classical all-in-white designs to rustic chic inspired by countryside cottages, one of these five wedding themes can be your staring point:

The Snow Queen

Silver and White are classic wedding colours, but you can add a twist to this scheme by turning your event into The Snow Queen fairytale. Isn’t this the perfect idea for winter weddings? Choose a princess-style satin gown with silver embellishments and accessorise it with fur details and a sparkly crown! You can use winter-inspired motifs such as snowflakes or white pompoms to further define your wedding theme.

Winter Woodlands

With trees covered in snow and puddles covered in ice, winter woodlands styling looks gorgeous during winter, and you can use this postcard-worthy image and transform it into your wedding theme. You can stick to traditional wedding colours and decorate your venue with white branches and silver adornments or add splashes of green for the perfect winter wedding theme.

Rustic-style wedding themes can work for winter weddings as well! This is a great idea if you are planning to tie the knot in the mountains covered with snow, so pick a beautiful lodge with a wooden interior and style it with gorgeous DIY decorations. You can mix green and red with soft wooden tones, or stick to natural hues of brown, sand and ivory which make gorgeous wedding colours for rustic venues.

Edwardian Dinner Party

If you want to add vintage glamour to your winter wedding theme, but make it stylish and luxe rather than just cute and whimsical, perhaps you can look back to the Edwardian era for inspiration. Think glamorous dinner parties with candelabra and lavish floral arrangements on the table. Watch old episodes of Downton Abbey to get inspiration for your wedding colours.

White Glamour

A white colour scheme works for every season, but it is especially appropriate for winter weddings. You can add seasonal elements to your wedding theme, or opt for classic décor and add black details if you like. Try to be a playful with this theme and use it for food and cocktails as well. You can even dress up your bridesmaids in short white dresses and give them white posies which will create stunning visual effect.
