While spring and summer weddings are fun, winter weddings add an extra air of excitement to the day.
If you’re planning to have the winter wonderland wedding of your dreams, we’re here to help! Here are eight tips to have a winter wedding your guests will be talking about all year.
1. Let It Snow!
It’s not a true winter day without a little bit of snow, now is it? Some brides have let the snow rain down while they walk down the aisle or during their first dance. Not only does this gift your guests will the element of surprise, but it’ll make those special moments even more magical.
2. Shake Up The Menu
Add elements of coziness by filling your menu with warm, hearty meals. Instead of traditional cake for dessert, why not include some cupcakes with silver icing or have a hot chocolate bar? If you planned to have a candy table, baby blue and silver wrapped goodies will help you highlight the theme of the wedding.
3. Dress Up Your Wedding Aisle
Your wedding aisle will leave the biggest impression on your guests, so don’t hold back during the decorating process. White tree branches, faux snow, and candles can give your aisle that warm and cozy ambiance while still maintaining the elegance of the day.

Lighting can easily make or break the winter wonderland aesthetic of your day. If you want a cooler feel, spring for lighting in soft blues and purples to mimic a cold winter night.
