Winter is finally here which means ‘tis the season for winter weddings! Winter is a popular choice for weddings because venues are more available and often more affordable, but such practical considerations aren’t the only reason Canadian brides are choosing to get married in a winter wonderland.

Winter is a naturally beautiful season for weddings. What better backdrop for your gorgeous white dress than soft, white snow falling and ice-capped trees? The joy and beauty of the season seem to make everything magical. And with these winter-focused ideas, your winter wedding will be magical. Here are our five essentials for your winter nuptials:

Beautiful Colour Combinations

Winter offers some of the most elegant colour palettes. Choose from the perfect shades of blue and white or rich, deep colours such as burgundy and forest green to accentuate the naturally-occurring colours through this season. From twists on seasonal classics to sticking with the tried and true, there are endless ways inject your day with the magic of winter.

A Dashing Backdrop for Photographs

A current trend that has been ongoing for the last couple of years is having a natural landscape as a backdrop for wedding photos. At Glenerin Inn, we’ll ensure your venue looks as gorgeous inside as it does outside. Our winter brides have access to a beautiful, picturesque property that’ll make for jaw-dropping wedding photos. Whether you’re outside taking photos alongside our historic mansion, or inside due to the weather, we have the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

Consider creating a small little area dedicated to your guests for taking photos. An idea for a backdrop to this selfie corner is having little teardrop lights with a couple of pieces of sheer white and blue tapestry above. Using a thin tapestry will allow the lights to glow through the fabric and add a fairy tale effect which is perfect for the winter wedding you’re planning.

Unique Table Decorations

This is where you get to let your creativity shine! For many brides, decorating is one of the most enjoyable parts of planning a wedding. Winter offers a plethora of natural goodies to dress your table. From large evergreen arrangements to woodland features, your guests will be transported to a winter dream. A simple idea for your table number holders is a… pinecone. It embodies a winter wedding theme but is also small enough to allow for a grander centrepiece.

Hot Drink Station

Everyone appreciates a nice hot drink once the snow slowly starts to drape the city. Your wedding party and guests will be craving something to soothe the winter chill. Allow our staff to take care of the details of a hot drink station for you. From hot chocolate to hot apple cider, to an assortment of different holiday teas and specialty coffees, a hot drink will enhance the holiday mood.  

The Perfect Winter Wonderland

The venue is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding. You want a location that is going to look gorgeous surrounded by snow. You can never go wrong with a venue that has a unique history to it as well.
