Winter is easily the most romantic season for a wedding here in Colorado! With snow falling from the heavens, a carpet of white on the ground and the mountains showing off in all their majestic glory, it’s a magical wonderland. Despite the cold, it’s also a wonderful time of year for a wedding. We’ve planned many beautiful winter events over the years, so today I’m taking inspiration from some of those snow-covered celebrations to bring you these ten winter wedding details to fall in love with!

There’s nothing more romantic than snowy portraits. Be sure to grab a few moments outside with your photographer – totally worth the chill!

Make sure your bridesmaids are stylish – and warm! – with matching faux fur stoles and ear muffs. A gorgeous wrap or stole is a must for the bride too.

Don’t forget your boots. There’s no point trying to navigate the snow in heels, so make sure you have a pair of stylish snow boots to change into. They look darling in photographs too!

Outdoor ceremonies aren’t only for summer. This gorgeous wintry set-up incorporates lots of natural textures and warm metallics, but the panoramic views are the star of the show! For an indoor ceremony, a fireplace makes a lovely focal point.

Keep guests cozy by presenting them with blankets or wraps. It’s a practical offering that does double duty as a wedding favor.


Bring the outside in with your winter table arrangements. Add natural textures like wood, twigs, pine cones, winter fruits and moss.

Pay tribute to your mountain setting with a winter wedding cake. I love the way that a snowy mountain was used as the inspiration for this triple-tiered confection.

Carry a wintry bouquet. All white blooms make for a classic winter bouquet, like this one. Ask your florist to include smaller blooms, like stephanotis or lily of the valley.

Nothing evokes the feeling of home like a touch of plaid. Include it in small ways like a groom’s tie or ribbon at a place setting.

Make your getaway on a wintery mode of transport, from skis to sleds to lifts. Or my favorite: a horse drawn sleigh! Isn’t it romantic?
