Ceremonies are no longer just for the summer – with bargains to be had not just for your venue but with many suppliers too, savvy spending couples are embracing the magical Christmas season for their own magical day. It’s easy to write off a winter wedding as a silver and navy or bauble-clad affair, but you needn’t. Here are three winter wedding decor ideas – whatever your style, you’re bound to fall for one!
The white wedding
That faux-fur wrap you’re wearing? Use it as a cosy Scandinavian accent thrown across benches at a relaxed, rustic winter wedding for a practical and pretty accent to your white wonderland decor.

The Christmassy wedding
We couldn’t talk about winter wedding decor without throwing Christmas into the mix, could we?! A simple red and white scheme will retain the elegance of a white wedding while still celebrating the time of year you’ve chosen to say “I do”.
Lanterns and candles, just like fairylights, are a winter wedding essential. Scatter them extensively for the best effect and make sure you okay lighting candles with your venue first. If they have a no candles policy, opt for battery-powered candle substitutes that will still provide a romantic glow.
This is proof that baubles don’t have to be clunky and garish. This elegance glass bauble, half-filled with rose petals is enchanting and makes the most sophisticated of twists on traditional Christmas decor.
Be mindful of your guests while you’re all busy having your photos taken – if they’re going to be spending time outdoors or in a colder or draughty location, a pretty bundle of blankets in baskets will keep them comfortable.
