Bridal Looks

Moody makeup

Deep red lipsticks, a bronze-y contour, and smokey eye makeup provide contrast against crisp ivory wedding gowns. This truly makes the bride pop – especially if she’s lucky enough to have white snow in her portraits!

Sweater Wraps

While furs are still making their statement in winter weddings, some brides are opting for cozy sweater shawls as an alternate look! Try a light grey hue or a bridal ivory to stay warm during your portraits.

Wreath bouquets

Don’t worry, we aren’t recommending you carry a Christmas door-wreath down the aisle! However, “wreath bouquets” have become incredibly popular in recent wedding seasons, and winter is the perfect time to incorporate pine needles and pinecones into a circular bouquet! Show off all that evergreen foliage, girl!

 

Long, lacey sleeves and intricate updos

An updo gives long sleeves with a lot of detailing room to shine! Try a braided ‘do or a low bun with loose curls to complement your long sleeves.

Color Schemes

Cool blues and icy whites

Try this classic wintry white duo by pairing bridesmaid dresses in different shades of blue with the white of your wedding gown along with creamy white details.

Neutrals and florals

Bright, deep winter florals paired with light neutrals like gray or taupe make for a gorgeous contrast that’ll look stunning up at the altar!

Deep jewel tones

Deep colors like navy and wine look gorgeous contrasted with a white (or ivory) wedding gown! Using darker holiday tones can be gorgeous around November or December, especially when paired with greenery.

Copper and greenery

Romantic greenery paired with copper metal tones creates a gorgeous contrast that is perfect for table centerpieces and arbor pieces. Contrasting deep greens like Italian Ruscus or lighter greens like baby blue eucalyptus against bright copper creates a gorgeous showstopping color scheme.

 

Winter Themed Wedding Decorations, Favors, and Food

“Get Cozy” blanket stations

Instead of a summery flip-flop station for your winter themed wedding decorations, put out a cute wicker or metal basket filled with rolled up blankets in your color scheme tied with pretty ribbon. Guests will surely be thankful for some layers during an outdoor ceremony!

Hot chocolate bars

Chat with your caterer about setting up a hot cocoa dispenser set up with pretty bowls of various toppings: marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, cinnamon sticks, etc.! Your family and friends will love a hot, cozy beverage and the customization will add tons of fun and sweetness. 

Succulents, pinecones, and blue thistle

Chat with your florist about adding these supplemental accent pieces to your bouquets and arrangements! When paired with your color scheme, these wintry pieces can bring an arrangement from simple to seasonal.

 

Winter makes a gorgeous setting for unique, cozy, intimate weddings. We can’t wait to see how these winter wedding trends in 2019 turn out for our beautiful brides and their winter themed wedding decorations!
