Winter Weddings

Winter Wedding Decor Ideas

Winter is a beautiful time of year to plan your wedding, which will be magically glistening and stunningly timeless, and the most unforgettable moment of your life that you’ll treasure always.

Planning your winter wedding day will ensure that it runs smoothly and to plan, and hiring a wedding planner will guarantee that this is the case. Your planner can help you decide whether you’d like a wedding abroad, which favours and centrepieces you love, and other things such as bridesmaid dresses and seating plans. For more planning information, go to

Have a look at the following winter decor ideas for inspiration on your wedding day decoration.
Color Schemes

Popular winter wedding colors are reds, greens and blues, although when it comes to color schemes, a good rule to follow is ‘less is more’. You don’t want to go over the top on these colors as it can become a little too much, but subtle outbursts look stunning.


Red themes are timeless and classy, and work perfectly in the winter seasons. They especially look amazing with a mix of green and a little gold, and are effortlessly finished off with a touch of red lipstick and small matching details here and there.


Blue color schemes look beautiful with gold, white and silver, and indicate a very elegant and classy bride and groom. Blue color schemes really suit the winter months, bringing that edge of glistening iciness, but the right amount of warmth to make your guests feel at home.

Neutral colours work just as well for wintery themes, with touches of gold, silvers and browns. Neutral colors bring that rustic feeling to life, and give a sense of that woody countryside feeling that can be finished off perfectly with a classic open fire for your guests to warm their chilly hands.


Centrepieces come down to the bride and groom’s personal taste, but when it comes to winter, centrepieces should be warming and ideally a conversation starter for all your guests. Beautiful winter centrepieces really bring a room together, and add towards that special little something that makes your wedding so personal and memorable.

Pine cones

Pine cones make for a really simple yet pretty winter centerpiece, and give off quite a rustic feel about them. You can either leave them in their natural state, or spray paint them red and silver or gold, to give your guests a warm wintery feeling.

Floating centrepieces

Putting a single flower into a little vase of water to float makes for such a simple but beautiful centrepiece design. The image below shows some gorgeous wintery ideas, but the same effect can be received by any flower of your choice, and even tea lights. If you like the idea of this but want it on a bigger scale, you could invest in some glass fish bowls and do a mix of the both, floating flowers and a few tea lights to finish it off.


This is a really cool and quirky idea for a table decoration, and a centrepiece that all ages of your guests will appreciate. With red and white candy sticks and stunning flowers, this is a centrepiece that gives off a definite Christmassy feeling about it, and also works as a joint favour, while the candy sticks are an after dinner treat for your guests to help themselves to.

The Cake

The wedding cake is a classic and traditional part of every wedding, and in more recent years, the bride-and-groom-to-be have decided to personalise their cake in order to differ from the conventional three tiers that everyone is overly familiar with. However, wedding cakes are also the perfect opportunity to theme and design your cake into a festive and wintery feast.

Cute and Simple

If you want a simple wedding cake, that matches your color scheme, a round, tiered cake, finished with ribbon and the bride and groom’s initials on top make for a really cute yet beautiful winter wedding cake.

Alternative wedding cake ideas would include gorgeous cupcakes, macaroons and cake filled snow cones, any design that isn't to usual tiered wedding cake, or a tiered cake that is slightly off centre and unique.
