Fireplace Altar

Forget about flower-clad arches and elaborate candle displays, say your vows in front of a cozy, crackling fireplace, instead. Don’t forget to dress up the mantle with some lush greenery!

Snow Boots

Strutting through the snow in sky high heels ain’t easy. We suggest trading in your Louboutins for some snow boots - at least while you’re braving the outdoors.

Festive Escort Cards

Give your escort cards some winter flavour by accompanying them with their own little trees (AKA itty bitty pieces of fir or pine).

Outdoor Ceremony

You may be tempted to host your ceremony indoors when the temperature drops to below zero, but saying your “I dos” in a winter wonderland is a downright dreamy idea. Pro tip: you’ll want to have space heaters or blankets available for your guests, you don’t want anyone getting frost bite!

Pinecone Boutonnieres

Pint-sized floral arrangements may be the norm, but they’re not the only option out there for boutonnieres. Make yours suit the season by using pinecones and tiny pieces of fir.

Wooden Vows

Don’t write your vows in your old notebook or on the back of a napkin - turn them into a keepsake by having them etched into wood.

Chairlift Getaway

If you’re hosting your ceremony atop a mountain you won’t be able to hop in a limo right away. Turn a chairlift into your getaway car and decorate it to perfection like this adorable alpine duo.

While you can definitely still rock a pastel bouquet, red and greenery arrangements will give your wedding some extra wintery flair.

Bring the outside in by decking your reception venue with some sparkling snowflakes. These can be used as place holders, centerpieces, dessert table decor and everything in between.

Horses (With or Without a Carriage)

You probably won’t be able to rent reindeer for your winter wedding, but horses are an equally beautiful addition to your big day. If you and your soon-to-be spouse are equestrians you can even ride off into the sunset on them.

Branch Decor

By now, most of the leaves have fallen from the trees, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less beautiful. Steal their style by adding some bare branches to your wedding decor.

Cozy Blankets

Cocktail dresses, wedding gowns, suits and tuxedos aren’t exactly winter attire. Stock your venue with some cozy blankets so that everyone can stay toasty warm on your wedding day.

Chocolate Goodies

Winter is the time to indulge! Give your guests some decadent chocolate favours when they leave your reception - they’ll probably be long gone before they arrive at their homes or hotels.

Glowing Lanterns

Harsh fluorescents are far from romantic, so try illuminating your venue with some glowing lanterns, instead. Pro tip: these make for great centrepieces, if you’re looking to save on blooms.
