Remember that while you may not be competing with multiple weddings for a specific venue, lots of corporate festivities are being organized at this time of year. Once you decide on a venue it is still important to book early and avoid disappointment.

Then you can begin the enjoyable task of planning a winter wedding. One potential disadvantage of the winter wedding is inclement weather. Having your out-of-town guests plan to arrive 2-3 days in advance is a wise decision. Stranded at the airport while you are getting married is the last place your guests want to be.

Choosing just one of the winter wedding themes listed below may be the toughest task you have when planning your memorable day.

And don't forget the winter wedding invitations!

Okay, let's jump right in:

Sleighs and Sledding

This is one of the more whimsical winter wedding themes with lots of room for creativity.

  • Arrive at the church in a horse-drawn sleigh or carriage.
  • Take the entire wedding party for a sleigh or carriage ride.
  • Use sleighs filled with candles and seasonal greenery for table centerpieces.
  • Have photographs taken at a popular sledding hill with children sledding in the background.
  • Encourage the wedding guests to have a little fun (with the proper outdoor clothing of course) and go sledding before the reception. Or plan a special sledding party before the rehearsal the day before.
  • A tall tiered cake with a sledding hill circling down each tier makes the perfect cake for this theme.
  • Select a sled inspired Christmas ornament for your wedding favor.

Snowflakes

Easy to find and never out of style, this is one of the most straightforward themes to decorate around.

  • Colors best suited for this theme are white with a hint of ice blue.
  • A simple snowflake border for your stationery is an elegant and attractive look.
  • Decorate the reception hall with large glittery snowflakes hung from the ceiling.
  • Give gifts of dated Swarovski crystal snowflakes to your wedding party.
  • Choose a simple white fondant cake adorned with handmade white chocolate snowflakes.

Skating

A skating theme conjures images of frozen ponds, thick sweaters, toques and mittens. Let your imagination soar with ideas.

  • Get married at an outdoor skating rink and plan for your guests to take a spin around the ice before heading to the reception. Plan a location with plenty of skate rental options. Ensure there is good music and lots of hot chocolate on hand. Skate for no longer than 45 minutes as not all your guests will participate and you don't want them getting too chilly on the sidelines.
  • Decorate the dance floor to resemble an outdoor skating rink.
  • Install a small indoor skating rink using artificial ice (a great alternative to outdoor skating but for something this unique, you'll need a substantial budget).
  • Use a snow globe or similar wind-up ornament depicting a skating scene for table centerpieces.
  • Give a skating inspired Christmas ornament to your wedding guests.
  • Pick a bride and groom skating for a cake topper.

Angels

Angels can be used throughout the year but they seem particularly well-suited for winter wedding themes.

  • White or ivory with soft and dreamy pinks, blues, greens or mauves are all excellent color choices.
  • Cherub figurines holding candles or flowers surrounded by fluffy feathers can be used for table centerpieces.
  • Large white columns topped with flower filled urns look great in either the church or reception hall.
  • Children’s angel wings can be used to decorate the skirting of the head table or placed over doorways.
  • Generous uses of tulle and chiffon with miniature white lights will add to the charm of an angel themed wedding.
  • Christmas is the perfect time to stock up on angel ornaments to be used for reception hall decorations or as wedding favors.

Hearts, Roses and Cupid

This is a natural theme choice for a February wedding (northern hemisphere) but don’t think it is your only choice. Any of the winter wedding themes is suitable.

  • Red, pink and white are the colors of choice for a heart themed wedding.
  • If you are terrific at planning, purchasing Valentine products on sale one year for use the following will save a tremendous amount on your decoration budget.
  • Roses, roses and more roses are the main decoration to be used. You can supplement your fresh roses with silk ones to help stretch your flower budget.
  • Lots of candles with soft glow will enhance the romantic feel of this theme.
  • Hand made wedding favors of heart shaped chocolates or cookies, decorated with your names and date will dazzle your guests.
  • Swarovski crystal hearts are absolutely breathtaking – give one to your partner as a wedding gift or to members of your bridal party.

Winter is a romantic, magical season to tie the knot. A lot of thought and planning will go into making your special day the winter wonderland of your dreams. Start by picking one of the winter wedding themes or choose a Christmas themed wedding if you are in the northern hemisphere for a winter wedding. Then, you may also be interested in christmas wedding invitations.
