If you are considering holding your wedding during the winter months, you may need some ideas for planning your wedding. Below I have made suggestions of where to find Winter Wonderland invitations, decorations, favors for your guests, gifts for your wedding party, and some ideas for your wedding cake.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme Ideas: Winter Wedding Invitations
Wedding Paper Divas carry a pretty wide selection of invitations that would be great for a Winter Wonderland themed wedding. My personal favorite is called Frosted Wonderland. You can customize the color of the background. These invitations are really chic and beautiful. They cost $1.64-$4.50 each depending on the quantity that you order. Matching response, reception, enclosure, thank you, and place cards are also available. Check out the other beautiful winter wedding invitation designs available from Wedding Paper Divas here
Another great choice for a Winter Wonderland wedding invitation is the Chandelier Letterpress Wedding Invitation from Hello! Lucky. Since they are letterpress, these invitations are more pricey costing anywhere from $1.97-$13.27 each depending on how many you purchase.
The Wintery Day Wedding Invitation from TrendyTreasure on Etsy has white glitter flocked paper on it which is reminiscent of snow. These invitations are $3.50 per invitation and you get to customize the color of the cardstock, text, and satin ribbon. The TrendyTreasure Etsy shop also sells an invitation called Foiled in Elegance – Winter Edition Wedding Invitation which has a metallic damask background that looks very festive and wintery. These invitations cost $4 each.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme Ideas: Decorations
A great idea to decorate tables at your reception for brides on a budget is to get some Snowflake Floating Candles ($9.99 per dozen) and White Snowflake Pieces (50 pieces for $2.99) both from Oriental Trading. Float some of the candles in bowls from the Dollar Tree and surround with a sprinkling of the snowflake pieces and possibly even some glitter.
Oriental Trading also carries Personalized Winter Wedding Banners, Blue and Silver Snowflake Garland, and Dangling Snowflakes that you might like to use for your Winter Wonderland wedding.
For free decorations look no further than your back yard. You can incorporate twigs, branches, and pine cones into your wedding decor. They can be left the way that they are or you could spray paint them white and maybe even spray on a light coat of glitter.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme Ideas: Favors
Oriental Trading carries Winter Wedding Cookie Cutters with Cards for $5.99 per dozen, Rose Soap Sets which are $9.99 per dozen, Personalized Winter Wedding Candle Tins for $24.99 for one dozen, Personalized Winter Wedding Hershey’s Bars – $17.99 per dozen, and Personalized Winter Wedding Tins with Mints – 24 for $19.99. You might want to consider some of their X-Treme Winter Rubber Duckies ($5.99 per dozen) if there will be children attending your wedding.
Another great idea for winter wedding favors are these Love Bird Salt and Pepper Shakers from Bliss Wedding Market that cost $3.98 each. This is a favor that could be functional for your guests long after your wedding day.
You could provide Snowflake Shaped Wine Stoppers from American Bridal for $1.95-$2.05 apiece.
You might want to consider providing safety scissors and some square pieces of paper so children can make their own snowflakes. You could also use this idea to have your guests write you a message of well wishes in lieu of a guest book.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme Ideas: Wedding Party Gifts
To keep your bridal party nice and warm, consider buying them gift cards for Starbucks or another locally owned coffee shop and perhaps a customized Tumbler from Exclusively Weddings to keep that coffee warm. Or if they are not coffee drinkers, maybe you could provide them with a customized Colorful Flask or Gunmetal Flask which are also from Exclusively Weddings.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme Ideas: Cake
You could have your baker dust a shimmery powder all over the fondant of your cake. They may also be able to cut snowflake shaped pieces of fondant out to stick on the cake. Consider adding touches of light blue if you are going with snowflakes. Other good Winter Wonderland cake decorations could include holly or bare birch branches.
If you are serving cupcakes at your wedding, you may want to consider investing in these Laser Cut Cupcake Wrappers from Bliss Wedding Market. They are available in a few options that would be nice for a winter wedding such as blue snowflakes, ivory ivy vine, green holly, cross, and white filigree.
