A Winter wedding can be a just beautiful as much as a summer wedding. If you choose to get married in the colder months, you may want to incorporate the season into your wedding. Whether you want it to be festive before Christmas or a white-winter wedding, there’s plenty of options to play with. If you are opting for Xmas wedding then take a look at our colour palette below that we incorporated “Burgundy + Shades of red and Gold” for this winter XMas theme.
Christmas Wedding Colour Theme
For a Christmas themed winter wedding. The beauty of winter is the contrasting colours, such as the deep green of the holly and the bright red of the berries and gold make the perfect trio. Bring the beauty of the season into your wedding by adding décor, such as holly, pine cones, berries, candles, reefs and even a Christmas tree. You could further incorporate the ‘winter’ look into your bouquet or your hair accessories.
Winter Wedding Dress
A seasonal wedding dress does not mean you have to put up with the cold and wrap up in your warmest fleece as soon as the reception starts. The main pro of a winter wedding is that you can add beautiful shrugs and throws over your wedding dress, keeping you warm, as well as creating an elegant and classy look, like these light grey fur wedding wraps in the colour palette were from SissilyDesigns.

More decor : Embroidered tapestries, silver candelabra, sparkling tiny lights and hues of warm colours like reds, greens and bit of blue define the décor of a winter wedding. Use seasonal flowers and colour palettes that speak of Christmas. But take care not to overdo it and make your wedding avenue look like Santa Claus’s headquarters!
Winter Wedding Cake
The cake is the star of the day next to the couple. Hence, even if everything else goes wrong, the wedding cake needs to be perfect. Traditionally a wedding is white. Try this look white two tiers with gold metallic dripped on the cake and topped with pine cones and berries. Wedding cake photo by OctaviaplusKlaus
The traditional wedding flowers for winter are red roses, amaryllis, and calla lilies. However, the fad this year tells us to experiment with fuller flowers such as hydrangeas and ranunculus. Adding mini wedding bells or crystals can make these blooms even more dashing. Wedding bouquet photo by OctaviaplusKlaus
Hot drink bar
Hot cocoa bars and s’mores favors are right at home at a winter wedding. A pie bar or doughnut buffets with coffee are always a good idea for winter wedding.
To give guests plenty of options, this couple served both hot chocolate and hot apple cider at their cold-weather wedding. Chic copper drink dispensers can house any warm bevarage of choice, so consider serving your favorites in a similar way. Photo by Cat Mayer Studio
