Cozy accents, glittering metallics, seasonal foliage, and if you get lucky — snow! These are just a few reasons we love winter weddings in Colorado. If you’re considering the cooler months to say your vows, check out these tips!

To start, winter color palettes are a total dream. From all white everything to deep, moody tones and everything in between, these weddings serve major inspiration. Here are a few example palettes from Here Comes the Guide!

What to Wear

Long sleeves, heavy laces and satins look beautiful in a winter setting, but don’t let that limit you when choosing the right gown. A faux fur jacket or velvet cape can make a lighter weight gown feel more festive, and keep you a little warmer!  

For the guys: Velvet and wool jackets not only look seasonally stylish, but will also keep the men warm during the wedding. Stick with black, grey and navy for a classic look, or consider a burgundy or deep hunter green for something a little more festive.

Cozy Details

Braving the cold for a picturesque outdoor winter wedding? Give your guests the gift of cozy by offering warm blankets during the ceremony. Personalized fleece blankets make great wedding favors!

Turn up the heat! Many of our favorite Colorado wedding venues have fireplaces. Get a fire going to create the ultimate romantic cozy vibe.

Signature drinks? Yes please! Browse Pinterest (or our cozy cocktail inspiration blog!) to find the perfect libations to warm up your guests.

Keep in Mind

If you’re considering a winter soiree, there are a few things to think about. First, securing a date that works for the majority of friends and family can pose a challenge around the holidays. Second, you can never truly predict what the weather will be like (classic Colorado), so the white winter wedding of your dreams may be missing a key detail — snow. Third, if you do get lucky with fairytale flurries, your guests may be affected by weather-related travel delays. Finally, remember that the sun sets pretty early! Choose a time that allows you to capture the memories before it gets too dark.

In whatever season you decide to say “I do”, we would be honored to help you find the perfect dress for your special day. Book an appointment at our Denver bridal shop for the ultimate wedding dress shopping experience.
