Winter may not technically be “wedding season,” but that’s exactly why it’s so underrated. Filled with magic and snow, there’s something about winter that, despite the cold, makes for a seriously beautiful wedding, one that often stands out from the rest, because winter wonderland wedding ideas can inspire certain styles that you can’t really nail in any other season — think earthen elements in the form of pine cones or evergreens, silver and white palettes, or sprigs of cinnamon or forest berries scattered throughout. No matter your preference, a winter wedding is almost always guaranteed to look like a winter wonderland.

Here, a few winter wonderland wedding ideas to cast that spell.

Tie escort cards with velvet ribbon on the branches of miniature evergreens for a festive seating chart display.

A cozy looking blanket or quilt station for guests is the perfect way to accommodate them during the ceremony and provide favors — practical and thoughtful. Pair it with a cute sign for added one of our favorite winter wonderland wedding ideas.

A silver place setting accented with a red twig and pomegranate lined centerpiece paints a look of wintry sophistication.

Grey and white tones cast winter wonderland feels all over this ceremony. Place gray blankets over ashen benches and white, frosty floral arrangements along the aisle for some winter magic.

There couldn’t be a more perfect winter wonderland wedding idea than a hot cocoa bar. Set it up with warm, inviting tones and earthen materials so guests can get that snug, by the fire vibe.

A naked cake adorned with forest berries and a dusting of snow-inspired frosting has rustic winter woodland charm.

Mossy placemats, sprigs of cinnamon and greenery, and golden, neutral tones evoke a winter ski lodge feel.

Seriously, what’s cuter than these cozy, plaid “Mrs.” And “Mr.” blankets as newlywed seat signs? They provide a yuletide touch, especially when coupled with a gorgeous tablescape of greenery, deer figurines, and white, red, and gold accents.

Attach sprigs of evergreen to the bindings of wedding programs for a subtle winter wonderland wedding idea. We love how they accent the evergreen illustration on these minimalist programs.
