In a perfect world, all bride and grooms would have a blissful, stress-free wedding with a remote to control the weather, among other things. But even with all of the planning leading up to that special day, the reality is that some things are just out of our control. Not to worry—with the right attitude and some preparation, your day will be bright and shiny no matter what the forecast. Consider these wedding decorations ideas and tips for the winter wedding of your dreams. 

Rain or Shine

Whether you chose the wintertime because you’ve always envisioned a snowy white wedding or you’re hoping to save money in the “off season,” don’t let the weather stop you from creating a winter wonderland. The weather is something that every bride thinks about no matter when or where the wedding will take place. Summer and autumn brides worry about the day being too warm, while winter and spring brides are easily put off by just the thought of rain or snow. The fact of the matter is that Mother Nature is stubborn and unpredictable, so you really should plan for all forecasts and have a backup plan for any outdoor affair. Especially for guests who are travelling, consider advising guests to dress warm and prepare for any bad weather. 

The Venue

Picking an indoor venue can eliminate a lot of unnecessary worry about the weather, but keep in mind that winter weather can impact travel time significantly. Keeping to a schedule is important for a smoothly flowing wedding, but remember to have an attitude of flexibility and just go with the flow no matter what the conditions. This is your day to shine, so enjoy being surrounded by loved ones and remember to laugh if anything goes awry. 

If you haven’t decided on a venue yet, consider those with an indoor option in case the weather decides not to cooperate. But if you’re like many brides, you may have your heart set on an outdoor ceremony or reception area, which could be risky if your wedding date is during the winter season. You don’t have to assume the worst, but prepare a backup plan in case the park with the pretty view turns into a muddy field. Having umbrellas that complement your wedding decorations are an increasingly popular choice that add fun and excitement to your day (not to mention that they look amazing in photographs). 

The Wedding Decorations

When choosing the right wedding decorations to complement your winter celebrations, keep in mind all of your favorite memories that make you adore the season so much. The snow falling, the crackling fireplace, ice skating and sledding, hot chocolate, snowball fights —these are all things that make winter so delightful, so incorporating them into your wedding accessories and theme will warm the hearts of all. 

Snowflakes are one of my all-time favorite winter wedding decorations because of how it draws on the uniqueness of your love just like a one-of-a-kind snowflake. You can be well-assured that snowflakes will be loved by all, so play up this theme with snowflake tea light holders scattered throughout your venue. You can even send your guests home with snowflake themed wedding favours or mini snow globes. You can use Christmas Tree Baubles as centrepieces or even just mini Christmas trees.

Staying Positive

No matter what weather your big day brings, keep in mind that if it’s just the ceremony that gets a little rain or snow, you will likely end up with the most gorgeous and memorable wedding for you and your guests. Not only will the lighting be perfect for your photographer, but you’re sure to end up with some of the most unique and beautiful wedding photographs that you will cherish forever. There’s just something about being caught in the rain or snow that takes reminds us of being kids again, so keep a smile on your face and enjoy the wonders and beauty of nature on your winter wedding day.
