There’s nothing as amazing as a beautiful winter wedding.
But here’s the thing.
A wedding needs a theme, so that you can decorate it, plan it, and orchestrate it well.
And choosing a theme isn’t always easy.
So today, we’re going to look at 7 of our absolute favorite winter wedding themes that work especially well here in the Ozarks.
If you’re busy planning your big day and need a bit of inspiration to get you to the next stage of the process—we’ve got you covered.
Let’s dive in and explore it.
7 Beautiful Ozark-Friendly Winter Wedding Themes
1. A Very Merry Christmas
Christmas is obviously a popular winter wedding theme, and for good reason.
The decorations (usually white, green, red, and gold) are universally enjoyed and appreciated.
Plus, you can make this type of wedding work almost anywhere.
You could have it at a Church, at an event center, right at home in front of the family tree, etc.
And since Christmas decorations are abundant in the winter, finding the perfect decor (and a wide variety of options to choose from) generally isn’t an issue.
2. Pure Winter
We love this winter wedding theme because it goes all-in on one particular aspect of the winter season—the snow.
Decorations for this type of wedding generally include snowflakes, white candles, white ‘snow-globe’ type string lights—pretty much anything that’ll make your venue look like a veritable winter wonderland.
With this theme, you’ll usually go with an all-white, traditional or modern dress style.
The only thing that’ll contrast this will generally be his all-black tuxedo.
We find that this looks beautiful!
3. Rustic Farm
One thing about the Ozarks is that many of us grew up on the farm—and so, throwing back to those origins with this decor style can be an amazing way to tie the memorable past and tradition to the budding hope of new love and a bright future.
Decorations for this one can be very individualistic.
You may want to wear non-traditional clothing (think plaids or denim, with a prairie-core dress, or possibly even a simple traditional sundress-styled wedding dress instead of the usual gown), and you may want to ‘winterize’ the theme by decorating the inside of your family barn and putting down a dance-floor.
4. A Winter Fairy Tale
Everyone loves fairy tales.
And when it comes to winter wedding themes, this dreamy theme can really stand out as being unique.
Consider choosing one popular fairy tale, and using elements of it to inspire the gown and decor.
For example—a little red riding hood theme may call for a beautiful, flowing red gown as opposed to the traditional ‘white’ dress.
Yes, it’s daring. But sometimes, this is exactly what the situation calls for!
5. Fireside Glow
One decor element that often runs side-by-side with the traditional winter theme is the theme of a crackling, sparkling fireplace and the soft glow of candlelight.
You may want to consider pursuing this direction for your wedding by first seeking out a venue with a beautiful fireplace.
You can double down by decorating with enough candles to turn the entire event into a beautiful golden glow.
If you’re worried about a fire hazard—just go for electronic candles. They look super real, but are also completely safe.
6. Back To The Classics
For this wedding theme, consider getting a classic car to drive away in. You can also shop for wedding dresses that throw back to those ‘classic’ looks of the 1920s or 30s (think Great Gatsby era).
You can even style your hair and decorate in these themes.
This isn’t necessarily a decor style that most people are going to choose over more traditional options. But it’s really unique—and if you have a love for the classic themes of yesteryear, this may very well be the best way to go.
7. Winter Traditional
Never underestimate the power of the traditional winter wedding.
A modern or contemporary gown, tuxedos, white and red flowers, and plenty of beautiful lighting can really set a warm mood for a ceremony in this otherwise cold and dreary time of the year.
Throw in some beautiful music, and perhaps some slightly modified wedding vows—and you may just find exactly the type of ‘vibe’ you’ve always hoped for for such an important occasion.
There you have it.
7 of the most beautiful winter wedding themes that would tend to work wonderfully right here in the Ozarks.
Of course, the only thing left to do now is to pick one out and start planning.
