Light Grey Linens

Skies may be grey in winter, but there's no reason to stay away from this color for a winter wedding. Light grey looks easy and classic, and goes with just about everything. This is a chic way to add just a little more to your table settings. For the bride who has wedding colors that are a little more neutral or minimal, this is the shade to go with.

Gold Napkin Holders

There's something so elegant about gold details. They work with just about anything, and they make something like linens look more grown up and glamourous. Something as small and simple as a napkin holder will instantly make your table linens more chic. Less can really be more, and it will still look like no detail was left behind.

White Candlesticks

For a romantic reception, candles are always a good idea. White candles are the perfect option for any reception or event because they work with any color combination and stand out completely on their own. Long-stem, dripless candles are the best way to light up your evenings without all the mess. You'll love how they make your night glow, even in the low light.

Emerald Green Bridesmaid Dresses

Dark and bold colors for winter weddings add a pop of color to the white and grey skies of the season. A color tone that looks beautiful is emerald green. It's one of the best winter colors, looking great against snowy backdrops, and will match wonderfully with winter florals and greenery. Your ladies will look nothing short of incredible.

Wedding Capes

If your wedding gown is not long sleeved and you're still trying to keep warm, a wedding cape is an elegant way to keep yourself warm. Incredibly chic, they will keep you warm while you're taking photos outdoors. An alternative to a wedding veil, they're easy to remove for multiple looks on your wedding day, and won't have to worry about your hairstyle being affected. There's so many different styles to choose from, you'll be able to match one to your dress perfectly.

Pampas Grass Bouquets

For a beautifully unique winter bouquet, pampas grass is such a great option. It's perfect for the bride who still wants a little bit of a boho vibe. White pampas grass is perfect for winter and will work with any color scheme. We love this one that also features bunny tail grass, preserved roses, and delicately placed hydrangeas. Add in a couple of florals that match your wedding colors to make this bouquet completely your own.

Winter Cakes

Cake is always a good idea! Keep your desserts in the winter theme with a cake that matches the season. You could add pine cones, or bright poinsettia flowers for a bold holiday season look. If you want a more modern design, dark colors, pine needles and white florals on this three tiered design below makes for a great addition to your winter wedding.
