Winter Theme Wedding Food Ideas
More and more people are opting for a winter wedding (wedding celebration image by Warren Millar from

Although many weddings are held in the spring and summer months, winter weddings are becoming more common, especially in areas where the weather is warm year-round. Having a winter wedding can even provide a scenic background in areas blanketed by snow. Those having a winter wedding will likely want to tailor their menus to reflect the season. Fortunately, there are many food options for those who want to have a winter-themed wedding.

Winter themed appetizers should be warm and reflective of the season. For example, filo-wrapped Brie topped with cranberry chutney, warm stuffed mushrooms and small cups of pumpkin soup would all make good appetizers for a winter wedding.

Main Courses

You can take the traditional wedding menu offerings of chicken, beef and fish and simply add winter vegetables such as roasted squash and pumpkin as side dishes to give them a winter flare. You can also serve the meat with a sauce made of winter fruits and vegetables, such as pomegranate, instead of serving gravy.


Drinks that would work well at a winter-themed wedding include classics with a refined twist on them. Try serving your guests the following: hot chocolate with a touch of chocolate liqueur, swirls of whipped cream, and chocolate shavings; spiced red wine or mulled cider with cinnamon sticks in decorative goblets; eggnog with sprinkles of nutmeg, topped with whipped cream. If you plan on serving coffee, you can offer flavoured options such as pumpkin in addition to the regular and decaf standards.


If you want a cake at your wedding, an all-white one would work well with a winter theme. You can ask the baker to sprinkle large, clear sugar crystals on the layers to give the appearance of ice crystals. Those who prefer not to serve a tiered cake at their winter wedding can instead offer pumpkin tarts, miniature French silk pies, a tower of decadent fudge in different flavours or apple crisp with small scoops of ice cream and caramel sauce.
