Ceremony Decor

The exchanging of vows is a momentous occasion, and the accompanying decor helps set the tone for your big day. When you’re considering details like the pew accents, the bridal bouquets, and the ring bearer pillow, there are many ways to make them festive for winter nuptials.

Pew Accents

If your wedding ceremony is to take place in a church, you may choose to decorate the end of each pew. Not only does this create a beautiful accent as the guests watch the bride walk down the aisle, but it provides an elegant detail to photos taken during your ceremony. If you’re having a rustic-themed wedding, a simple burlap bow and Paper White Narcissuses add a unique touch, or, for a more refined accent, try pairing a white silk ribbon with holly leaves and berries.

Bridal Bouquets

As one of the most important parts of the ceremony, the bride’s bouquet is always a big consideration. Seasonal white and red roses are a classic, elegant choice for brides getting married in the winter time, and these flowers look amazing by themselves or with Baby’s Breath. For a unique keepsake, brides may purchase a stunning red or white Eternity™ Rose arrangement from our Special Collections to remember your special day for months on end!

Ring Bearer Pillow

While many couples choose to go the traditional route for their ring bearer pillows, why not incorporate a bit of festive flair here, as well? Instead of a white satin pillow, a velvet pillow that matches your wedding colors creates another element of soft elegance for your ceremony. If you’re looking for a creative way to ensure that your rings don’t slide off the pillow, you can secure them to a pine sprig with thin ribbon for a beautiful ring presentation.

Reception Decor

The celebration following your ceremony provides you and your guests with an opportunity to relax and have some fun. Incorporating elegant winter decor to your reception with chair accents, center pieces, and place cards can provide the warm and cozy ambiance you desire while remaining true to the season.

Chair Accents

Providing your guests with a place to sit during your reception is essential, and decorating the chairs so that they match the theme of your winter wedding will enhance the ambiance of the space. If the chairs themselves are not as elegant as you’d like, you can always order chair covers in a hue that matches your wedding colors. Additionally, whether you choose to cover the chairs or not, attaching flowers like orchids, lilies, and amaryllis will add a nice touch.

Center Pieces

Decorating the tables is a key part in setting the tone and theme of your reception, and unique centerpieces are one of the best ways to accomplish the task. Whether you’re searching for the right arrangement for the bridal party table or the guest tables, Venus et Fleur has the luxury roses you’re looking for. Our Ombre Collection and Garden Rose Collection both include our signature Eternity™ Roses in a wide variety of color options to complement your theme. Shop now!

Place Cards

Your guests will appreciate clear place cards on the dining tables letting them know where their designated seats are for the reception, and crafting unique seasonal name cards is a great way to incorporate some seasonal festivity into your reception. You can create custom place cards with anything from miniature grapevine wreaths with holly berries to sprigs of blue spruce with pinecones for a unique bit of flair your guests are sure to remember.
