Winter can be such a magical time to have a wedding. The frosty air, the evenings spent by a roaring fire, and the hot toddies just conjure up such a cozy and romantic feeling. These are some of the most special details to include in a wonderful wintery wedding.

As with any wedding, the place to begin is with the bride. My favorite inspiration for a winter bride is an ice princess, a shimmering vision in white. To create this feeling, pair a white satin or velvet gown with rich details that have some sparkle. Delicate silver embroidery on the gown, crystal snowflake hairpins glittering in the hair, and a Swarovski crystal tin cup necklace sparkling at the bride’s throat. The icy sparkle of a tin cup style necklace created from twinkling crystals is the perfect blend of delicacy and shimmer for a Northern princess. To complete the look, a simple updo and pale makeup with a touch of shine would be perfect.

Winter is all about capturing a cozy feeling. This is best done with a touch of glamor and luxury when you are a bride. Wrap yourself in a plush white fur (real or faux, depending on your preference) to keep the winter chill at bay. A new cashmere scarf in a dashing red will keep the groom warm and happy on his way to the wedding. If you dare brave the elements for a round of snowy photographs, the white fur and red scarf will add a dash of elegance to your pictures.

When it comes to decorating for a winter wedding, you will have some wonderful options. If you can possibly find a reception venue with a fireplace, that would be a very nice touch. Deck it out with ropes of pine boughs dressed up with pure white roses for a romantic winter time garland. Nestle white votive candles in clear glass on the mantle; if your venue will allow it, you could even bring in a collection of silver framed family photos to add to the mantle decorations. Pictures of generations of brides and grooms from both families would be a marvelous personal touch for your wedding.

Embrace the icy winter by using a white and silver color palette. A great dramatic accent for the wedding ceremony is to line the aisle with tall white birch branches. For an evening wedding, dim the overhead lights and add battery powered strings of tiny white lights to the tree branches for the ultimate Winter Wonderland effect. Create an archway of white branches, tiny lights, and dangling white flowers over the altar for even more drama and beauty.

Something that may not immediately spring to mind when decorating for your wedding is feathers. Downy white feathers can be an amazing thing to include for a winter wedding. Their fluffy whiteness is almost like snow drifts, and feathers can be used in numerous ways. One of the coolest is to use them to create a ruff around a pure white bouquet of flowers. For even more drama, wire glittering crystals in amongst the flowers. This would make for a breathtaking bouquet to carry down the aisle.

Finally, think about giving your wedding favors a wintery flair. Crystal snowflake ornaments are lovely for a wedding near Christmas. Or capture the spirit of the season with snowglobes showing a winter scene. This can be especially nice if you can find snowglobes that depict a scene from the area in which you will be married. It is a unique parting gift that your guests will really enjoy.

Take advantage of all of the majesty that winter has to offer. From accessories that create warmth and coziness to a Winter Wonderland design scheme, winter has so much inspiration to offer a bride and groom. Be sure to use the best of winter when planning your own cold weather wedding.
