Winter weddings are elegant, season-inspired celebrations. For the bride and groom who adore the warm and glittery romantic qualities of the months of December through February, the coldest season of the year is rich in wedding-worthy inspiration. From sophisticated color palettes such as pink, blush and lavender to chic outdoor elements such as snowflakes, frost, and twigs, these beautiful details will weave into your invitation and ceremony for a dreamy fete that’s all yours.
As a wintertime bride, you want a wedding that reflects the season as well as who you are as a couple. Blending inspiration from nature, your love story, and your personal sense of style will create a unique and memorable wintertime event.
With your vision in mind, you can design lovely winter wedding invitations that unveil your winter theme to your guests and build excitement for your big day.
Winter Wedding Invitations
We’ve gathered some of the favorite Shutterfly selections of wedding planners and wintertime brides to start creating your custom winter wedding invitations.
“For a winter-themed wedding, create an invitation with your selected colors, motifs, or logo, and use quality paper,” says Tessa Brand of Tessa Lyn Events.
Final touches can also make a big impact. “A silver glitter belly band around the invitation is gorgeous,” says Tessa.
Expert timing tip: Tessa has designed and planned enough winter-themed events to share this helpful tip for wintertime brides: “Send your invitations earlier than the eight week rule,” she says. If you are doing a January or February wedding, the date puts your invitation in the same time frame with holiday cards. Planning ahead will ensure they don’t get lost in the pile.”
