Check out these Creative Winter Wedding Ideas!

Planning to say “I Do” this winter? We’ve listed 3 creative winter wedding ideas that you’ll love!

Creative Winter Wedding Ideas

Before walking down the aisle this winter, be sure to check out the creative winter wedding ideas that we've listed below.

Winter wedding inspiration for your big day:

1.) Winter Ceremony Decor. No matter where you plan to say your vows, make sure the venue is as cozy as possible. Think candles and fresh pine to brighten up your ceremony and make your guests feel comfortable while celebrating your special day. Decorate the chairs with holiday-inspired decor and pine cones or snowflakes to remind guests of the joys of the holiday season.

2.) Transportation. There’s nothing more romantic than arriving to your ceremony in a horse-drawn sleigh. If planning a winter wedding and looking for creative ideas, how about renting a horse-drawn carriage for the day? It will certainly make a statement and it will be the perfect backdrop to your winter wedding photos.

3.) Winter Wedding Attire. If you’re trying to figure out how to be stylish while still staying warm, consider adding a white coat or lightly-colored fur jacket over your dress. For your bridesmaids, a cape or shawl may be the perfect accessory to keep your bridal party warm and comfortable during your outdoor photo shoot.
