Winter wedding ideas

If your perfect time is taking a walk on a cold crisp winter’s afternoon, skiing down a snowy mountain side, or just relaxing in front of a log fire,  then a winter wedding may be for you.


A winter wedding can be magical and romantic, but can easily be influenced by Christmas, though this does not have to be the case, adding one or two seasonal details may be forgiven like pinecones or twinkling lights to brighten the ambiance. At NS we just love candlelight to add a touch of romance.

We believe a winter wedding venue should have a few key things: a large log fire; cosy décor and a rich ambience of warm fabrics, dense textures and lots of candle light.

deep purple

Don’t be afraid to drift away from the usual winter whites and metalics and go for something a little different like purple mixed in with shades of peach. A deep purple dress could be the perfect choice for bridesmaids.  Add a few key accessories like a faux stole , thick tights under your dress and even stylish boots rather than danity shoes to keep the chill out.

Wedding Stationery

Staying with purple the wedding stationery can easily reflect the wedding colour, and you can find lots of ideas from Confetti’s wedding stationery collections. If you are thinking of a festive wedding celebration, a New Years Eve wedding or just a winter wonderland wedding  you can easily mirror this through your wedding invitations. Then remember to ripple the chosen design through all your stationery items, from place cards through to wedding menus to ensure you make a statement.

Winter Wedding Favours

When it comes to wedding favours a small bag can be filled with a wee dram or a tiny box of rich chocolate truffles, To personalise the favour add a little thank you note, or if you have time make and design your own favour bags.

Christmas jam jars

When it comes to winter centrepieces, to keep the wedding budget in check you must have a look at what is in season on the high street. For example, these cute little jam jars floral range are perfect for any wedding table,

Red Poinsettia

or a poinsettia can make an ideal reception table centrepiece.

Christmas roses

Though at NS we just love winter white roses, which can be mixed in with twigs, ferns, or other white flowers. We just love a classical floral combination, like this delicately scented white freesias and white roses, mixed with frosted glitter birch, in this taupe zinc pail with a heart cut out design. You can find some fabulous  classical floral combination at Waitroses to suit your floral budget.

All white roses

For a more pure floral display with no added frills we adore these white roses.

Christmas candle centrepiece

An alternative to just flowers is a church candle arrangement to add a romantic feel to the room.

This elegant arrangement of white carnations, roses, cinnamon bundles, eucalyptus, pine and green Hypericum makes a lovely traditional winter centrepiece.

When it comes to bridal bouquets just a simple hand tied bunch of white rosebuds adorned with small crystals and tiny white feathers will be perfect.

When it comes to food for a winter wedding, a warm hearty menu is called for, with inviting hot and spicy food: such as parsnip soup, roast beef and a warm chocolate pudding. Plus hot drinks on arrival will keep your guests happy and warm.

white chocolate wedding cake

We find a white chocolate wedding cake irresistible at NS , such as this three tiers golden sponge cake with a white chocolate ganache and raspberry jam filling, covered with marzipan and ivory soft icing, finished with white chocolate curls and ivory ribbons from Waitrose will definitely complete the winter decor.

Christmas Tree detail

Finally, if you must add a touch of festivity then a beautifully decorated Christmas tree may be the answer.
