Georgia may not get much snow, but this barn wedding brings holiday cheer nonetheless! Elegant aqua and silver accents, paired with the rustic beauty of pine cones and evergreen, make for a unique country chic Winter wedding. From beginning to end, we’re sharing special details and how you can accomplish this wedding style, too!
Get the country chic bridal look
Choose a vintage-inspired lace wedding dress, and pair it with your favorite boots! You’ll look great and your feet will be comfortable and warm on your wedding day. A messy bun is romantic and shows off your earrings. Small earrings with a pop of blue complement the color palette and take care of “something blue.” And yes, those are pine cones tucked in the bouquet! This is a great rustic detail for a winter wedding.
Give guests a warm welcome
As guests arrive, an outdoor display with a mantel and directional sign show guests where to go and set the scene for what’s ahead.
Fences lined with themed decor guide guests to the ceremony site and tie in the color palette, too!
Make an entrance
At an outdoor wedding, it can be a little tricky to conceal the bride for her grand entrance. Creating a doorway with reclaimed wood is a clever way to define a ceremony space and add an element of surprise for the bride’s entrance.
Style tip: You can adorn the doorway with special touches, like a horseshoe for good luck!
Lining the aisle with seasonal decor, like lanterns filled with fake snow, pine cones, and ornaments, is an affordable way to dress up the aisle.
Planning tip: These lanterns can be used as table decor for the reception!
Icicle-like crystals hung in the trees truly create a winter wonderland!
Move the party indoors
As the sun starts to set, move indoors for the reception. Cafe lights and chandeliers cast a warm glow, and snowflakes hung from the rafters create a winter wonderland. Mixed styles of tables, chairs, and china are fitting for this space. Lay a long evergreen garland on each table and incorporate simple, festive decor, like lanterns, votives, and ornaments, to fill in the space.
Planning tip: Set each place with a mason jar mug and bright blue striped straw for guests to use throughout the reception. This adds to the decor and guests can keep the mason jar as a favor!
Don’t skip dessert
A simple jam-filled naked wedding cake is totally on trend and an adorable pine cone cake topper adds a unique touch! Lighted tree branches bring guests’ attention to the dessert display.
Serve warm sips
A hot chocolate bar is a fun activity for a Winter wedding! Invite guests to mix a cup of cocoa with their favorite toppings.
Planning tip: Take the hot chocolate bar to another level and offer liqueur, like Bailey’s or Kahlua, for the adults to spike their hot chocolate!
Relish the moment
Step outside for some sunset pictures on the farm. This is a perfect moment to cozy up with your new husband and take a picture to send as a “thank you” to guests after the wedding.
