There’s nothing more enchanting than a Texas winter wedding. At Southfork Ranch, you’ll find a gorgeous ranch backdrop surrounded by lush green pastures, massive oak trees, and the infamous white mansion. If you’re eager to plan an elegant wedding in a charming rustic setting, here is some inspiration for your winter wedding decorations.
Festive Twinkle Lighting
In the winter months, the sun will set earlier in the evening. Instead of relying on natural lighting from the sun, incorporate some added mood lighting into your décor.
Use lanterns to line walkways
String lights over the dance floor
Add candles to your table centerpieces
Create a lounge area around a fire pit
Wrap festive string lights around trees
Do a sparkler send-off
Lighting not only sets the mood for the event, but it will also give your wedding photographer more to work with. Shadows, glowing faces, and twinkling décor will make for some stunning photos.
Deep Rich Colors
The colors of winter are rich and deep. The base of your color scheme should be neutral. Draw your inspiration from the natural colors of winter. Emerald green pine trees, midnight blue skies, and white blankets of snow. Consider using a pop of something in the red family to bring in some festive color.
Winter Patterns & Textures
When decorating your wedding event space for winter, there are so many cozy patterns and textures to work with. A red plaid blanket or beautiful faux fur jacket could be a cozy prop for some photos. Velvet ribbon can be used to hold together greenery or add texture to a centerpiece.
Wood is also a popular material used for winter wedding decorations. The winter wood look includes whitewashed wood and bare branches. Using wood as a platter for desserts, name cards, or centerpieces is an easy way to add a touch of winter to your decorations.
Using greenery to decorate is a great way to embrace the winter season. Tables, the aisle, archways, chairs, and signage are all calling for greenery embellishment. There are a variety of greenery options to use when decorating for a winter wedding.
Pinecones and cranberry are also festive elements worth adding to your winter wedding décor. Detail photos, like the ring shot, are ideal for incorporating some of these elements. Place the rings on a pine leaf or hang them in the pinecone. These materials are also great to use to fill glass jars as an affordable and handmade centerpiece.
