1. Bridal Accessories

From faux fur shawls to a seasonal bouquet of holly, berries or soft blooms, winter bridal accessories are sure to spice up your special day. Even choosing to do a long sleeve lace dress or a bold red lip will add a holiday inspired style and add an element of glam.

2. Decor, decor, decor!

There are endless options when it comes to decor for a winter wedding. By simply hanging twinkling lights, lighting candles or fireplaces, you will make your space feel cozier and full of warmth! Also, adorning your tablescape with a seasonal color scheme of burgundy, white and green paired with gold flatware is one of the best ways to create festive details at each place setting. Simply adding garland or mistletoe will give your guests a wintery, forest-grown ambiance.

4. The cake

Incorporating winter touches into your cake design is fun and elegant. By decorating your tiers with greenery, berries, frosted pine cones, snowflakes or festive florals you will give your guests that same holiday cheer they get from warm homemade cookies. If you are opting for a simple white cake, you can opt for a festive cake stand, tablecloth or choose a flavor such as gingerbread or red velvet to give off that merry vibe!
