Designing your winter wedding decor can be a bit overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. You can find great ideas on Pinterest, talking with friends and family who planned their weddings and even working directly with your venue.

These sources will help you with ideas for your wedding decor. To get you started, here are a few ideas for a winter wonderland wedding.

Ceremony Decor

Here are a few main pieces of decor to think of when planning your ceremony.

A Welcome Sign

This may be the first thing your guests may see. Make sure it’s a large enough sign to visibly display the welcome text. You could have fun with it by adding some twinkle lights around the edges and snowflakes to go along with the winter theme of your wedding.

Events Sign

Just like the welcome sign, your guests will be looking at this to see the order of events for your wedding. To make your DIY projects easier for you and to be consistent, use the same materials and theme.

Ceremony Arch

One of the most important decor pieces of any weddings is the ceremony arch. The photographer will likely use this area as a main focal piece with the lovely couple. Some ideas for the ceremony arch could include wintergreen garland, silver ribbon, white tulle, and twinkle lights to give it that winter wonderland look.

Dinner & Reception Decor

No one should forget about their dinner and reception dinner. You can show off your creative skills with your decorations using some great ideas.


Depending if you need table centerpieces or not, you can get really creative with some DIY projects. A great option is creating a glitter vase for each table, spray painting small branches and pine cones so they appear frosted. Combine those together with a candle and you’ve got a simple DIY-but-classy centerpiece.

Bar/Drink Station Display

Continue to incorporate garland, ribbon, tulle, and frosted pine cones for the bar. To make it even more winter themed, include hot chocolate with the bar/drink station. You could then include candy canes and some red ribbon to tie it all together.

Photo Booth

Everyone loves a good photo booth, especially at weddings. With a winter themed wedding, you can have all sorts of great decorations. Start with a snowy backdrop, add some garland with a silver ribbon and you almost have a White Christmas movie look-a-like. Don’t forget to include your winter themed props!
