Allie and I know that the most popular seasons for weddings are spring and fall, but there are so many perks to having a winter wedding! They are more budget friendly because it is not "peak season". Plus, guests won't have to choose between your nuptials or another wedding invite. But mainly, we love winter weddings because there are so many unique style details that work best for the season.
These details work perfectly to transform your wintry celebration without making it feel like a holiday party. Our tip for using winter decor is to use them wisely and sparingly. Pick and choose the ideas that work best in your space, and do not feel that you need to transform every aspect of your wedding into something seasonal.
Some of our favorite ways to add festive elements to your nuptials include evergreens, hints of metallics (without going overboard), and warm knits. From place cards to wedding favors and ceremony decor to centerpieces there are so many ways to accent your winter wedding date.
