Nashville Winter Wedding Ideas

First on my list of winter wedding must-haves, velvet! More couples are choosing to stray from tradition and incorporate elements of velvet in their wedding. From suits, to wedding party dresses, velvet can be anywhere. I love the idea of velvet in a wedding as it adds a beautiful texture and is so classy!

Twinkly Lights at Your Winter Wedding

Imagine you and your partner have just committed to one another. You’re dancing your first dance as a newly married couple in a room filled with twinkly lights and candles. The romance! It’s straight out of a movie, and so dreamy. Adding twinkly lights to your evening reception or even wedding ceremony is an inexpensive and timeless way to add a little magic to your winter wedding.

Natural Elements

What’s one of the best smells during the winter months? Pine! Another popular wedding trend this year is adding greenery, or nature to your wedding decor. Whether that’s pine cones, twigs of pine, or even just simple greenery. It brings such a warmth to the event while also being down to earth and simple. Some of the best weddings I’ve been to are the ones that have kept things simple and chic. This is a great way to do that!

Cozy Treats at Your Winter Wedding

While celebrating with family and friends, consider serving a cozy treat! Pinterest was filled with s’mores boards, soup and hot cocoa bars, and so much more. When the weather begins to cool, the change in food is one of the most popular. Invite guests to enjoy a simple and warm treat while celebrating your love story!

Stay Warm with Blankets and Fun Coats

During this winter season you can expect to see more blankets and chic coats. Brides are bringing out the denim jackets, faux fur and cozy blankets. Adding a jacket or blanket to your wedding day look allows for so much fun in bridal portraits! We’re able to get some really cozy pictures and achieve the ultimate winter wedding look.

Gem Tones in Wedding Color Palette

Lastly while planning your wedding, consider adding some rich gem tones to your color palette. It’s a beautiful time of year to embrace the rich colors and will stand out against winter foliage. Don’t be afraid to choose darker tones for your wedding as well! The darker tones will make a huge impact in photos and will be stunning.
