Searching for an idea for a winter wedding theme, but tired of the Winter Wonderland concept? There are plenty of unique and beautiful ideas for a winter ceremony and reception that go beyond the tried and true themes. Get inspired with these creative winter wedding themes.
A visit to a ski resort can be the highlight of the winter season for many people. Let this be your inspiration for a ski resort theme wedding. The ideal venue would be a ski lodge, of course, but the theme can also be transported to many other sites with ease.
Make your own save the date cards and design them to look like ski lift tickets. Vintage postcards from ski resorts would make very fun alternatives to the standard table numbers (seat your guests at tables like “Park City”, “Killington”, or “Whistler”). Decorate the wedding cake in a red and white pattern that resembles the design of a handknit ski sweater (right in keeping with the trend towards weddings with homespun charm). And don’t forget the steaming mugs of cocoa, the roaring fire in the fireplace, and the cozy menu. Exchanging your vow on the ski lift is optional!
The winter social season is often the time of year with the most elegant parties and balls. For a creative formal winter wedding theme, consider a masked ball. Take your cue from the grand masked balls for which Venice, Italy is so renowned. Request black tie or even white tie attire on your engraved wedding invitations to ensure that everyone comes dressed to the nines.
