Evergreen Winter Wedding Inspiration

Did you catch the early nod to winter a couple weeks back? We’re crazy like that, and today I’m taking it one step further. I’m so taken with winter greens that I’m pulling together an entire winter inspiration board around them. And just so you know- it’s magical. Join me in this winter wonderland, won’t you?

Evergreen Winter Wedding Inspiration

Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

ONE: Boughs and garlands- we’ll take them all, please and thank you. What a magical canopy for a winter wedding. These garlands would look fabulous as a backdrop, in an entry way, anywhere…. really.

TWO: A well dressed groom… *sigh* We’re in love with this vested look and simple winter forest inspired buttoner.

THREE: Whether or not we’re talking greenery… I’d be crazy not to include some seasonal florals! These blooms are in season in December and pair so well with evergreen touches.

FOUR: Would you believe me if I told you this icy looking beauty of a cake is from a summer event? No lie… but it really belongs at a winter wedding if you ask me.

FIVE: This bouquet… it’s dreamy! Could you even disagree with that? The frosted tones paired with the bold winter greens. It’s all kinds of winter wonderful.

SIX: Mini cupcakes with simple sprigs of pine- it couldn’t be more simple, but it sure packs a punch!

SEVEN: Give guests a tip off to the wintery scene they’ll be walking into with simple invitations adorned with evergreen illustrations.

EIGHT: We always go back to sprigs of greenery at each place setting- but it just works! No matter the theme, no matter the season. These winter greens are no exception.

NINE: This lush garland is all sorts of wonderful. The whole wedding is, really. We love that they mixed traditional greens in with some wintery options like pine for this table runner garland.

TEN: It’s a little bit boho, it’s a little bit elegant. Hanging sprigs of cedar with gold garlands makes for such a whimsical backdrop at this wedding.

ELEVEN: Isn’t this just magical? There’s something about snow covered pine trees that takes me to a winter wonderland of fairytale weddings.

 

It’s a big list today, right?! I just couldn’t stop. What’s your favourite? I’m all about that garland in number 9. And those sweet florals in number 3. Just give me flowers year round and I’ll be happy.

Feature Friday: Sleds at Weddings

Didn’t summer just end? I know! I could tell you would say that, but it doesn’t matter. It’s never too early to start dreaming up cozy winter weddings when you do what I do! Before we know it, it will be Christmas after all 😉 If you’re one of the few to brave a winter wedding, we love your style. Nothing says cozy romantic like candlelight and snowflakes. But what about a vintage sled? Here’s some of our favourite ways we’ve spotted them used in weddings!

Inspiration for vintage Sleds at weddings- perfect for winter decor!

ONE: This one is our baby, we love her and we take her to every winter party, wedding, or event that we can. Here she’s stunning leaned up against a table. She doesn’t need the spotlight, she’ll fit in anywhere.

TWO: Some of the cutest winter wedding photos were taken on a vintage sleigh. They’re just fun. If you’re not up for riding a vintage sled in your wedding dress, give your flowers a ride- it makes for the perfect bouquet shot.

THREE: A vintage sleigh is the perfect size (and pretty!) for a seating chart. Have more guests? Mix a few sleds, sleighs, or toboggans with seating cards for a beautiful display.

FOUR: Spoiler alert… this is my favourite from the inspiration. I just love how the sled adds height to the cake table and that no linens are required on these vintage beauties. And the cakes? Who needs fondant, they’re beautiful without. Perfection, friends.

FIVE: That moss… that snow! It’s a deadly combination. while I don’t suggest you put all your desserts on the ground, how sweet would this be on a table indoors to bring the cozy inside? Or on a snowy ledge as guests walk in to your location?

SIX: Signage! Can you ever have enough signage? We love this simple chalkboard and greens entryway signage but we’ve seen everything from monograms to directions on these babies.

 

So I saved no mystery here, you know my favourite! Now it’s time to spill the beans- what’s yours? Is it ever too early to start dreaming winter weddings? You be the judge!

Merry Happy- and a Freebie!
