A fresh dusting of snow, the smell of pine trees, and your closest friends and family create a magical setting for a winter wedding. Holiday weddings present challenges that you might not face in a summer wedding, so planning this delightful event requires getting to work early on your big day.
Holiday Colors and Winter Weddings
Floral Christmas Archway
Classic holiday colors for Christmas include green and red while celebrations around the New Year tend to feature silver and white. You’re in luck since the beautiful hues of winter and the holidays lend themselves beautifully for your wedding colors.
Imagine your reception’s centerpieces in red and green, complete with wintery pine cones, red candles, and the refreshing holiday aromas of holly and pine. Red roses and the dark greens of Christmas will look gorgeous for the wedding party’s bouquets and boutonnieres.
If you’re celebrating the New Year or dream of a white wedding, a white and silver wedding is one of the easiest ways to wow your guests and celebrate the season. Go for simplicity with beautiful winter arrangements of white gerbera daisies, or try something elegant with white roses, lilies, and hydrangeas.
Boost Your Wedding’s Holiday Appeal
A classic white wedding cake for a winter wedding sounds appropriate, but if your colors are green and red, think about impressing your guests with a vivid red wedding cake. The foliage on the wedding arch is another terrific place for holiday cheer with greens that resembles a festive and friendly holiday wreath.
Plan Early, Earlier, & Earliest

Consider sending your invitations out well in advance. Traditionally, wedding invitations go out somewhere between six and eight weeks before the big day, but you might think about adding a month or two to this time frame.
Don’t risk your guests planning a party or holiday event before they get your wedding invitation. Stake your claim to your wedding date as early as possible. Also, consider mailing postcards as a reminder a few weeks before the ceremony.
This also goes for the wedding venues. If you’re getting married in a church, you might need to work around their schedule of holiday services. You’ll also face some significant competition for your reception. Call up your favored venue as early as possible and put down a deposit.
A winter wedding is an adventurous and dynamic season for your big day. Embrace the color, joy, and festivity of the holiday season with the flowers and decorations for your Christmas or New Year’s nuptials.
