PartySlate’s marketing team may have spent the last couple months gushing about fall. However, we’re just as ready to start dreaming about hot cocoa by the fire, sledding on a favorite hills, and dazzling winter wedding centerpieces.
If you live in the Midwest like us, winter is not the most popular time of year for wedding celebrations. It’s true, sub-zero conditions can pose a challenge for everyone, from traveling guests to your photography team.
Of course, daring the elements has its own reward. Wintertide weddings wow with their brilliant winter wedding color palettes, cozy (or dramatic) lighting opportunities, and photo-worthy tablescapes.
Forget the endless Pinterest scrolling. PartySlate’s shortlist of winter wedding centerpieces will have you eager for the next snowfall — minus the shoveling.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Centerpieces
Is there anything more magical than that first snowfall? Winter weddings are the perfect opportunity to capture the magic of a winter wonderland. Think lavish white floral décor, glimmering candlelight, and moody uplighting in brilliant winter colorscapes. As you’ll see, these winter centerpieces are anything but bleak.
Fall isn’t the only season for dramatic landscapes. Whether it’s a crimson cardinal alighting on a frosted winter branch or a velvety evergreen forest pitched in shadow, winter scenes capture our imaginations with their bold tableaus. With this in mind, we invite you to evoke the season’s startling beauty with moody and romantic winter centerpieces.
Rustic weddings have gone from trending to a classic wedding style that’s always in vogue. Their laid-back elegance is perfect for the no-fuss couple. While rustic weddings are often associated with summer and autumn months, where couples can celebrate outdoors, winter weddings can also benefit from rustic vibes. Keep coziness at the forefront of your winter wedding with an inviting tablescape — and the right centerpieces.
However you celebrate, the holiday season is a time that’s ripe for cheer and connection. It’s also the perfect time of year to say, “I do.” These winter wedding centerpieces embrace the festive spirit of the season — while keeping elegance first in mind.
Multiple centerpiece styles — from fireworks of festive crimson and greenery to low clusters of deep-red florals — are the perfect foreshadowing to the seasonal entertainment that awaited guests at this winter wedding. Click to see.
Think of that snowy field (or empty tablescape) as a blank canvas — ripe for the most imaginative ideas. It’s time to indulge in winter whimsy with playful and creative centerpieces. From Ikebana-inspired designs to elvish-like décor, these winter centerpieces have us thinking outside-the-box.
Sparkling snowfall and endless blue skies are our favorite types of winter days. Add a touch of blue to your winter wedding centerpieces for a bright and merry aesthetic. Trust us, your photographer will thank you.
Despite its reputation as a barren season, winter has many in-season flowers for your wedding centerpieces. Whether your aesthetic is bright and bold or dreamy and romantic, your options are plentiful.
