36 Winter Wedding Ideas For A Cozy, Festive Fête

Here’s an article on winter wedding tips from Martha Stewart Weddings.

Winter is arguably the most underrated season for weddings. Most brides flock to times of the year with warmer temps, to plan garden- or beach-inspired affairs. A smaller handful, however, know the true warmth of a cold-weather wedding. There’s nothing quite like a snowy backdrop or the rich, gem-inspired colors so often associated with the season.

If you want to bring wintry touches into your own celebration, but aren’t sure where to start, let the following real winter weddings be your guide. With Christmas-tree studded lounges, plaid chair adornments, and snowy outdoor (yep!) reception setups, these winter-inspired fêtes took the best elements of the season and reinterpreted them into fresh, inspired décor. Want to hold your early-winter wedding outdoors but fear your guests will catch a chill? Set up a blanket station at the head of the aisle so guests can stay warm. Choosing a ceremony venue with a functioning fireplace, so you can exchange vows with crackling firewood in the background, is another way to up the cozy factor.Of course, there are more ways to winterize your wedding than through décor. On the food front, opt for the classics. One couple kept guests happy and warm with a hot cocoa station, complete with white and dark chocolate options, and a toppings bar. And when it comes to dessert, a macaron tower, drizzled with chocolate, is the way to go. Ready to see even more ideas that are perfect for a winter wedding? They just might inspire you to plan your nuptials during the last quarter of the year.
