Burgundy Bridesmaid DressWhen selecting attire for your wedding party for a winter wedding, choose formal gowns in rich fabrics and tuxedos complete with tails.

Selecting Your Winter Wedding Colors

Red and Green
Red and green is still nice, but not the standard Christmas red and green. Instead choose burgundy and deep forest green. Bridesmaids can wear long gowns in luxurious fabrics such as velvet.

Black and White
Your groom and his groomsmen can wear black tuxedos with long coats and white ties, while your bridesmaids look gorgeous in floor-length black gowns.

Metallics
Silver or blue-ish silver and white are ideal for a winter wedding. Choose metallic gowns that aren’t too shiny for your bridesmaids, or complement simple black dresses with metallic shoes.

If your winter wedding is in December, it doesn’t mean your bridesmaids need to be in Santa Claus hats with Winter Wonderland as your First Dance song. You can plan an incredible, classy winter wedding without a Christmas theme. And don’t rule out January as the month for your wedding. It’s oftentimes the most economical choice.

With many reception venues booking early for December weddings (Christmas) and February weddings (Valentine’s Day), you can usually find very affordable options in the month of January.

Bring the feel of winter inside with your wedding decorations. Use berries, eucalyptus, ivy, mistletoe, pinecones and even poinsettias to decorate the church and your reception tables. For wedding favors, consider bells, candles or even mini-Christmas stockings filled with candy.

    I would love to get married in winter, it is definitely my favorite season of the year. But then again, Christmas…hmmmm…maybe I would just like to have a winter theme, but have it in May…yeah I would like that better. Maybe get married in Antarctica in May, then it would have the winter feel, but no holidays to compete with!
