Did you know over 43% of couples get engaged over the holidays and winter season? If you are one of those lucky people that said, “yes!” under the mistletoe, surrounded by twinkle lights, or at the stroke of midnight, we are thrilled for you and your sweetheart! I mean, who wouldn’t want to be swept off their feet during the most romantic and enchanting time of the year.
So, with that many couples popping the big question this winter, why not as many winter weddings?! Only 13% of weddings take place during November through January, while most are in late spring. If I got to plan my wedding over again, I would definitely go with the former. If you are looking for a unique and romantic theme for your day, a winter wedding is the perfect choice!
While you may think red and green is a great combo, I would suggest going with colors that are inspired by winter’s natural beauty like metallic silver, blue, and white. You can always pair these neutrals with an accent color like a hunter green, sage, or burgundy.
Creating your own winter wonderland is a sure way to create an elegant ambiance. By adding crystals, glowing candles, and branches with twinkle lights you can bring the icy outdoors inside. Whether you go with simple elegance or posh decor, like a custom ice sculpture, you can never go wrong with incorporating details that reflect your personal style.
Since most weddings are indoors this time of year black-tie may be most appropriate. This means your wedding invitations should be on the formal side to reflect the tone of the day. Formal doesn’t have to mean traditional, the design can be modern and sophisticated as well.
Maybe you are one of those few that envisions their day surrounded by a backdrop of snow and the warmth of their family and friends. If so, below is a mood board to serve as inspiration for your winter wedding!
