    Give your guests a glimpse of what’s to come by including your winter wedding theme on your wedding invitations. We love these silver snowflake print wedding invitations from Lots of Love Invitations. The silver colour is winter appropriate and the metallic finish gives a luxurious edge.

    This beautiful snowflake inspired bridal bouquet from Sparkle and Posy is perfect for a winter wedding.

  • Thoughtful TouchesThoughtful Touches

    Unfortunately winter tends to be the time of year when many people suffer from colds and sniffles. Cater to your guests by supplying tissues, in case they are overcome with emotion or just can’t stop sneezing, just like this couple did in a wedding captured by Photography by Brideen.

    A cake with a Christmas theme can take pride of place at your winter wedding. It doesn’t have to be traditional fruitcake and marzipan though — we love this snowflake covered wedding cake, captured by Photography by Brideen.

  • Cosy CarriageCosy Carriage

    A sleigh would be perfect for a Christmas wedding, but not very practical! Consider a smart vintage car to transport you to your wedding in style, like this one from Wedding Vintage Car Hire. It’ll ensure you stay warm and dry as you travel. Consider covering the seats with a faux fur rug for an extra romantic look.

  • Inspiring IceInspiring Ice

    Embrace the chilly weather by including beautiful ice sculptures in your wedding décor. Northern Ireland Ice Sculptures are able to create almost anything from ice, from carved displays to centrepieces and table plans frozen in icy blocks.

  • Winter Wonderland VenueWinter Wonderland Venue

    Pick a wedding venue that will look amazing in the winter. Consider the lighting and the interior — will they be decorating it for Christmas? Is there a roaring fire and lots of cosy corners? If it snows it’s an added bonus — how amazing does Luttrells Town Castle look after the snow fell?
