By show of hands, who's planning a winter wedding? Ooooh, are you in for a fun time! Winter weddings offer a romantic aesthetic that's all their own — the landscape, the festive time of year, the weather potential (yeah, counting that as a plus!), and let's not forget the fashion potential!

‘Tis the season, so I scoured Offbeat Bride's archive of winter weddings and found gorgeous bits of inspiration for your solstice/New Year's/holiday/snowflake-themed wedding.

Winter weddings offer some unique bouquet creations. Have fun with yours!

Just because it's winter it doesn't mean it's too cold for some pre-wedding billiards outside!

  1. We’re getting married January 3rd! Keeping it warm and cozy in an Irish pub with a bunch of whiskey barrels as our background. It’s all about food, drinks and warm low lighting. For centerpieces, my grandma dried her many many hydrangeas and then I spray painted them gold and silver. So cheap!

  2. These pictures here make me want to have a winter wedding all over again…
