December may not be the most popular wedding month, but having a winter wedding can be a great idea! Your guests may already have time off work, everyone is in the holiday spirit, and of course, there's a ton of options for decor! Whether you go full-on Christmas or choose a more subtle approach, we've got a few tips for how you can celebrate the season AND your big day!
1. Dress for the weather.
You may not want to wear boots and a snowsuit on your wedding day, but cute winter accessories like a furry jacket, ear muffs, or a warm shawl can add some winter style and are great for outdoor photos. Plus, you'll stay warm and cozy!
2. Use frosted pine cones and greenery.
These items are ready available during the holiday season, and can be used for a winter theme without being too Christmas-y. You can even trim some fresh pine branches from a tree!
3. Fill cylinder vases with fairy lights and ornaments.
These simple, but charming centerpieces lend some holiday cheer to your reception. You can add fresh greenery on the tables if you're feeling fancy!
4. Hang snowflakes in your photo booth backdrop.
Snowflakes are more winter than Christmas and are the perfect accent for a midwinter wedding!
5. Mix gold and silver for a holiday feel.
You don't have to use ornaments, but somehow mixing gold and silver just feels like Christmas!
6. Give your guests a custom ornament as a favor.
The best favor is something your guests will use. An ornament is something that they can cherish year after year! There are so many great options on Etsy. Find the one pictured here!
7. Christmas tree charcuterie boards.
You can't go wrong with charcuterie for your cocktail hour. Keep the holiday spirit flowing along with the drinks by incorporating a fun design!
