A white and green Winter wedding is a divine option for any bride and groom as it lends itself to a number of different themes and styles.
For instance, if you adore the thought of a chic-meets-cosy Winter wedding you can work in lots of wooden details for a rustic feel. Consider adding small pine cones into your wedding cake, your Winter wedding flowers and along windowsills or fireplaces. Team green and white table décor with wooden trestle tables and chairs, amongst mini bark name card holders and wooden tree slice centerpieces.
On the other hand, if you want a hint of glamour, use lots of golden details and decorations throughout your white and green winter wedding. You could use golden candlesticks, metallic terrariums or gilded cutlery to add a subtle sparkle to your festivities. Both styles will look gorgeous – you could even go all out and combine the two!
When it comes to your aisle style, you’re going to need to wrap up warm! But don’t fret – you don’t need to sacrifice on style when it comes to Winter weddings. Compliment a white bridal gown with a faux fur bolero, cosy knit or a pretty shawl. If you really feel the cold, you could even don a pair of tights under your wedding dress – no one will ever know!
There are lots of beautiful white flowers to use in your Winter bridal bouquet, but if you want something a little different, consider having a foliage-based bouquet tied with a silk white ribbon. You could use matching white ribbon across your invitations, place settings and even your chair covers.
From jewel-inspired emerald green gowns to delicate mint hues, your team of ‘maids will look utterly gorgeous in a green colour palette. Compliment their dresses with white wedding bouquets and our collection of bridesmaid jewellery sets and hair accessories. Our Peppermint Green Hair Comb is always a popular choice for the bridal party as it adds just the right amount of colour and sparkle.

The most popular wedding trend of 2017 was the use of greenery, and it can be used in lots of lovely ways at a Winter wedding. If your venue has a roaring fireplace, why not use wild foliage and greenery to line the mantelpiece? Work in metallic candlesticks, tea lights and pine cones for an extra festive touch. You can also use foliage garlands as part of your table centerpieces or to decorate your wedding seating plan. For your place settings, team white wedding stationery with a simple sprig of Eucalyptus or Ivy. It’s the perfect nod towards the season and it’s guaranteed to look ultra-elegant.
We suggest using an abundance of white tea lights and pillar candles throughout your Winter wedding. You will need to use lots of cosy lighting to make your venue feel warm and welcoming, especially as it will get darker much earlier. Why not opt for candles with a signature festive scent?
A white and green Winter wedding really is a heavenly fusion of festive elegance.
