‘Tis the season to share the most beautiful ceremony décor ideas for a winter wedding! To me, everything seems cozier, more romantic, and more magical this time of year. That’s why so many of our couples desire to get married during the awe and wonder that comes with the winter months!

With touches of warmth in color, the glow of candles and twinkling lights, and the magic of snow fall (well, not here in Florida!), this season is full of beauty to incorporate in your wedding. Read on to learn some of my favorite ceremony décor ideas for a winter wedding.

Your florals and accents

With some of the biggest holidays of the year taking place in winter, why not “spruce” up your décor as tribute? Among the most popular ceremony décor ideas for winter weddings includes the use of lush white florals mixed with evergreens or frosted winter berries. Winter touches like these would beautifully complement a natural wood branch altar statement piece!

White rose petals or faux snow lining the aisle can really set the tone for a winter ceremony. I also love the idea of snow-dusted lanterns decorated with evergreen boughs and lit with LED candles. Adding evergreen wreaths or boughs accented with ribbon in your wedding color hung from the pews or each aisle chairs would be the finishing winter touch!

Let it SNOW!

Create your own Winter Wonderland ceremony with a few snowflake motifs! Snowflake ornaments hanging from the ceremony altar or each chair are a nice option for an all-white wedding. If you’re really a snow fan, you could even incorporate a snow machine! We’d suggest setting it off once the couple is pronounced married. The newlyweds could celebrate down the aisle with a snowfall!

Your wedding colors

The right wedding color palette will perfectly enhance all of your incredible ceremony décor ideas. A winter wedding is the perfect time to incorporate rich, warm colors into your ceremony décor! Florals with deep burgundy, red, dark green, and ivory are a lovely complement to the holidays. If you’d prefer the cooler side, navy, light blue, and white are also dazzling!

Your fabric choices

Winter opens up your options when it comes to fabrics! Wrap your chairs and tie your bouquets with soft velvet ribbons, for example. If the ceremony is out in the cold elements, providing fleece or cashmere blankets is a thoughtful and practical ceremony décor idea. You could even match the blanket design to your wedding color palette and drape one over each chair. This serves as a nice gesture to guests and a cozy component to the ceremony!

Your lighting

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like twinkle lights? Me, neither! These lights instantly transform a ceremony space into that of a dream. If your ceremony is outdoors, stringing market lights around the surrounding trees will add a wintry effect to nature. An abundance of candles will also add warmth with a romantic feel!
