Are you thinking about having a winter wedding? You can have just as much, if not more fun decorating your venue for the winter season. There are endless opportunities to be creative with warm, cosy colours and accessories, to generate your perfect romantic atmosphere. Embrace the chill, wrap up tight and let nature provide the powerful backdrop for stunning photos. Whilst inside, welcome your guests into a sparkling winter wonderland full of magic and surprises. 

Here are 9 simple ideas for winter wedding decorations, that’ll add a touch of enchantment to your day: 

1) Perfect Pine
Pine cones can be picked up easily from wooded areas throughout the winter months. Decorate rustically, sprinkle with glitter or spray gold, and add to flower arrangements, wreaths, garlands or table decorations. Branches of pine can also be incorporated into your decorations and you get the added bonus of that distinctive, fresh Christmas tree smell!

2) Candles, candles and more candles
You don’t have to put a limit to the amount of candles that can be added to your venue, it’s a case of more is more! Light up the aisle, fill fireplaces and create an ambience on tables with plenty of candle,s and the place will look truly magical.

How about using empty bottles as candle holders? Mix up sizes and colours to add extra dimensions. 

3) Hot drinks bar
Keep your guests warm and toasty with a hot drinks bar. Entice their taste buds with hot toddies, mulled wine, Irish coffees or even create your own cocktail list. You can customise and personalise drink sleeves, biscuits and cakes, to complement your wedding theme, and arranging a display of tempting toppings for hot drinks could also be an effective way to fill space. Get creative with signs and menus, your guests will love it!

4) All that glitters 
Winter is the sparkle season! Sequins, glitter and metallics splashed everywhere around the venue will make it glisten. Get the sparkling effect of snow by incorporating crystals into flowers, table decorations and accessories. The great thing about Winter is that you can go all out with extras - our Wedding Stationary Board is full of quirky ideas!
