These striking invitations are the perfect introduction to a winter wedding. Splash delicately with white paint so they look like they’ve been sprinkled with snow.

Lit by Lanterns

Consider where your guests will be walking and light the way for them. Staircases look beautiful when adorned with pretty lanterns and flowers.

Line the Aisles

Create an impressive entrance by lining the aisle with wintery trees and lighting. Remember, you can always move them over to decorate your reception room after the ceremony has finished.

Bauble Beauties

Nothing says Christmas quite like a bauble! They’re great for holding place names and they decorate your table at the same time.

Sweet Treats

If you’re choosing a pudding table, this is the perfect time of year to do it. Adorn the table with mince pies, festive cookies and plenty of baubles and silver sparkle.

Make a Wish

For something a little quirky and unusual, put a wishing tree on a central table and invite guests to pin a ‘wish’ in the form of a note or decoration to the branches. It’s a wonderful winter decoration, and a special keepsake.

Light it Up

Fairy lights set a wonderfully romantic scene, but you don’t always have an abundance of places to hang them. Consider using battery operated lights and place them in large Kilner jars. The finished look is great for a little boho style.

The Winter Candle

Love the idea of jars? For a more country look, place tea lights in large glass jars and adorn the lids with your chosen decoration. They make great table centres and sit elegantly on window sills.

Festive Florals

Many couples marrying in winter might choose traditional colours such as reds, purples and greens. If you’d like to stick to white, add a little sparkle and glitter to your delicate blooms – simple but effective.

We love this table centrepiece, an extravaganza of baubles and pine cones, and a perfect alternative to traditional floral table centres.

The Grand Finale

As you say your vows, or take to the floor for your first dance, consider creating a dramatic wall of lights behind you. It’s that magical moment you’ll all remember, and provides a dream photo opportunity!
