Stylish Winter Wedding Decor Ideas

While some brides love the vibes of a summer wedding, we think there’s a lot to be said about the beauty of a winter wedding ceremony!

The temperature, the festive decor, the glittery colors, and the winter holiday magic of Christmas and the New Year, all lend to a wonderful atmosphere.

When it comes to styling your winter wedding, you’ve got quite a lot of options. Lean into the Christmas-y theme with reds and greens. Or, opt for a stylish, snowy theme of whites, muted blues, greens, and metallics. Of course, a glittery touch on everything will look amazing, particularly if the ceremony is in a frosty location. 

So without further ado, let’s go through all the ways you can make every corner of your wedding sparkle in the winter.

Flowers bring beauty and life to any space, and present the opportunity to put the couple’s own flair and personality into an arrangement.

For a winter wedding, we love the idea of pale greenery paired with white blooms. It’s a simple yet elegant color palette, which will match whatever other decor you choose. A bouquet of large white roses with green foliage would be stunning as centerpieces, or even as the bridal bouquet

Cypress is an obvious option for winter arrangements, reminiscent of classic Christmas trees. Meanwhile, the basic size and shape of eucalyptus leaves make them great additions to any bouquet.

Your best bet for fresh flowers during winter are roses and amaryllis. Admittedly, it’s not always easy to get your hands on your choice of fresh blooms during the colder months, so fake flowers are a good alternative. We have a full range of incredibly realistic silk flowers, leaves, and plants, to suit any wedding theme.

It’s a great time to get your hands on peonies, a classic wedding flower, outside of their typical blooming season in the spring.

Turn a doorway or window into a Christmassy portal by with garlands or wreaths. Again, eucalyptus is a wonderful option here. It can be wound around and frame arches and stairways. Use these same garlands as table runners on reception tables.

For a winter wonderland theme, you can’t go past mistletoe, ancient symbol of romance, fertility, and vitality. Even a small amount hung on doors, wound around chairs, or suspended from the ceiling, will go a long way in bringing your decor together.

Similarly, you can hang evergreen, eucalyptus, and olive branch wreaths in windows for an extra festive touch. 



Often one of the last things on the list, it’s still important to have chic table numbers that match the rest of the wedding. Calligraphed numbers are easy, but it’s always worth putting in a little more effort. Check out this example of our brass vases doing double duty as centerpieces and table numbers in this Martha Stewart Weddings copper, silver, and gold wedding decor story.

The best thing about glass vases is how versatile they are. Use them for small arrangements, single flowers, stems of foliage, or as candleholders with pillar candles or tea lights. Our round glass vases come in a range of different sizes to suit your needs.

Whether you’re going for a monochromatic winter wonderland, or a red and white extravaganza, it’s a good idea to hunt down some white ceramic or glass vases for the centerpieces.

For a more low-key look, use ceramic bud vases filled with a single flower stem or a pine pick. They add interest without taking up too much space. Bundle olive branches into a vase for a tall arrangement that for an escort card table or bar.

White table linens and white place settings are the base to this SNOWY TABLESCAPE from Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s a perfect example of contemporary and festive without the use of any flowers. And, it is an easy project for the DIY-bride or groom. “If you can wield a can of spray paint, you can create this wintry display. Using simple paper stencils, transfer the patterns or table numbers to vases with a couple of coats of Rust-O leum Specialty Frosted Glass Aerosol Paint. Then place small pillar candles inside.”

White candles are a must. They add beauty and light, and are well suited to the winter theme. If you’re having a black-tie wedding, crystal candlesticks will be perfect when set at intervals along the tables. Don’t be scared off if they sound too stuffy –– we have great modern candlesticks too.

For a more timeless look, candlelight from small crystal candleholders looks lovely, the flame casting the pattern etched into the glass right onto the table.

When you cannot have open flames, get the look using LED candles. They are available as pillar candles, tapers, tea light and votive candles. These genuinely mimic the real thing with lights that gently flicker, and some that even have real wax bodies.

Include the outdoors in your winter wedding. Christmas lights are just as beautiful indoors as they are strung in trees.

One unique way to display fairy lights or vintage LED bulbs is by winding them into a cute birdcage. Hang a few of these birdcages from the ceiling or place them on the bar. Our white birdcage also makes a striking visual when filled and decorated with birds and butterflies

Consider the overhead decor when planning your event. A winter wedding means that you can really lean into a snowy theme. Large white pom-poms hanging from the ceiling immediately invoke the feeling of winter, especially when the rest of your decor is silver and white.

RIBBON ROSETTES  Tie the knot with these pom-poms. Each one is made up of several separately made rosettes; just combine two or three, sew or bind together at the center with white pipe cleaner, and fluff into pom-poms. Suspended almost invisibly from the ceiling by monofilament, these soft orbs recall clouds sailing across a blue sky; they also echo in color and shape the white peonies in the centerpieces. – Martha Stewart Weddings

Go bold with teal colored table linens set with white dinnerware, white vases, and snowflake-like satin ribbon rosettes suspended just overhead at varying heights.
