What is the theme of winter weddings?

Light blue and silver are an elegant color combination, and crystal accents in the wedding décor can add sparkle and glamour to this wedding theme. There's nothing more magical than a winter theme inspired by a seasonal color palette (and we're not just talking red and green). Give your venue an icy aesthetic with white flowering trees, artificial snow and modern leucite chairs. For a splash of color, incorporate evergreen details into your table decorations and place cards.

Perfect for a modern, minimalist vibe, a white and grey color palette will give your wedding a streamlined, ultra-chic aesthetic. Use a variety of textures such as raw silk, velvet, vellum or faux fur to give this color palette some dimension and depth (this set of winter wedding invitations is just one example of how to achieve this). If you're having your wedding at a ski resort, give your guests winter-themed welcome bags. An assortment of berry-inspired colors (fuchsia, plum and raspberry, like these bridesmaid dresses) is one of the best color combinations for winter weddings if you're getting married on the cusp of the changing seasons.

Frosted pine cones are the classic winter decoration, sprinkle them around your wedding for an instant (and inexpensive) seasonal touch. Desserts and drinks at your wedding can be a powerful way to add a special touch to your wedding day décor. Bordeaux is one of the most popular colors for winter weddings, but plum purple is a stylish alternative if you're looking for something more unexpected. Winter wedding dates in January and February are usually out of season, so will be cheaper than summer weddings.

If you're having trouble choosing a winter wedding theme, start by thinking about the colors you like. Wear tights under your dress if your legs won't be visible, and have your attendants wear leg warmers to warm up chilled hands before wedding photos. Seasonal colors such as red, burgundy, emerald green and navy are some of the most popular colors for winter weddings. Personalizing your cutlery is a great way to extend your wedding table décor, especially if it is a small or intimate wedding.

If it's not an all-white winter wedding, mystical lighting is definitely necessary to create a winter wonderland atmosphere. Berries, pine cones, dusty miller and eucalyptus are some of the most popular accents for winter wedding bouquets and centerpieces. Festive shades such as red, green and gold are the most popular colors for winter weddings, especially for couples getting married at this time of year.
