Selecting a Winter Wedding Theme

By Charles Hopkins Published 12/14/2006 | Marriage

If you have already decided that you wish the theme of your wedding to be based around the winter season, then you are 75% of the way towards selecting the proper wedding theme. The reason for this is the fact that pinning down the theme to the winter months narrows the scope of the themes and allows the planning of the wedding to go smoothly as there is a decided focus for the wedding as it will be based around the holiday and winter months season. More than just providing a focus, however, the winter theme allows great flexibility for incorporating the winter weather into the wedding and also allows the weather to provide the perfect backdrop to the wedding.

Part of the reason that the winter is a wonderful time of the year for a wedding is that winter is so close to the holidays that the feeling of joyous festivities is in the air. This upbeat nature of the winter season will carry over into the wedding and provide a mood that will make the wedding even more uplifting that it would normally be. While winter weddings are not as popular as fall and spring weddings, they are growing in popularity more and more as people see that the winter season provides excellent auras for exchanging vows.

For a winter theme, it can be fun to choose a winter vacation style inn as the location of the wedding. Since inns that are designed for winter tourism are already winter themed in appearance, the necessity for winter decorations and splendor will be greatly reduced as the inn will already embody these needed and welcome traits. In a way, selecting an winter inn themed wedding eliminates a great deal of planning on the part of those crafting the wedding, because a winter in is built to order so to speak when it comes to winter themed events.

In order to boost the inn as the winter themed site, it is best to have the proper winter wedding favors decorating the inn. By doing this, the inn will embody even more of the theme of the wonderful winter months.

Now, one does not have to hold the wedding indoors (although it would be wise to hold the reception indoors) as the wedding could be held on the lawn or back yard of the inn. This still allows the wedding to capture the spirit of the winter inn wedding theme while at the same time taking advantage of what the outdoors offer during this time of the year.

The variations on selecting a winter theme for a wedding can go on for infinity, but at some point a person needs to actually make a selection as to what theme will be picked. In order to do this, a person must decide what environment truly embodies the winter and how feasible such an environment will be to actually hold the wedding. From a number of angles, a winter inn can provide the perfect theme for ones winter wedding choices
