Getting married in the winter season can conjure up ideas of an all-white affair and may make it easy to pick a wedding theme. Crisp, white scenery and cool weather can make the excitement of a wedding even greater. Snowflakes, a symbol of winter, are each unique in their own special way, just like brides. Incorporating snowflakes into your wedding can make it a standout event.

Cake Decor

The cake is one of the focal points of the a wedding reception and can have guests talking and eagerly anticipating cake-cutting time. For a winter wedding, an all-white cake decorated in snowflakes can be the perfect addition to your winter nuptials. Ask your bakery to experiment with the cake, garnishing it with edible snowflakes on a few tiers or, perhaps, use a larger snowflake as the cake topper.

Save the Dates and Invitations

If you are using a snowflake theme to represent your winter wonderland affair, start right away with save-the-dates cards and invitations. Use a snowflake stamp for the back of invitation envelopes, and use a picture taken of you and your groom-to-be during winter season set to a snowflake background found online for your save-the-date cards. Online vendors can help you create inventive themed date savers and invitations.

Lights and Hanging Decor

If your wedding takes place during winter months when snow isn't falling and the weather is bearable, consider a rooftop reception or indoor/outdoor space where snowflake-shaped lights and decor can be hung. String lights in snowflake shapes can add whimsy and wonder and be a perfect all-white backdrop for your winter wedding.


At a seated affair guests will spend a lot of time in front of the centrepiece. It has be something interesting and eye-catching, and with a snowflake theme this can be achieved easily. Get creative with snowflake holiday ornaments by placing them in a tall, clear vase. Also use snowflake place cards, chargers or pillars embellished with a snowflake design.
