The weather outside might be frightful but wintertime doesn’t stop couples from tying the knot during from December through March. There’s something magical about getting married when the temperatures are almost freezing.

Snow-Filled Branches in the Snow

There's nothing more beautiful than snow covered trees after a big storm. We used that image as an inspiration to create this simple centerpiece. Branches are big decorative item during the winter that can easily be used in winter wedding decor. The illusion of snow with the branches offers an understated elegance perfect for weddings.




Using white colored sand or salt, fill jars up and insert branches for this really easy wedding centerpiece idea.

Repurposed Wine Bottles for Wedding Décor

Wine bottles have been hot in the DIY scene since they are so versatile. Cleverly Inspired came up with a wintery way to dress up wine bottles making them the perfect DIY winter wonderland centerpiece. 




What’s so amazing about this centerpiece is that it’s made with Epsom salt! Clever indeed.

Metallic Candle Holder Centerpieces for Your Winter Wedding

Anything metallic fits in well during the winter season. With candles being a staple wedding décor item, create little clusters of them on your guest tables for an easy way to decorate. 




Buying various shades of metallic colored candle holders of different sizes, you can create snow-inspired wedding centerpieces easily. Try going to discount retailers’ home section for clearance décor items like these to recreate this look. This would give your tables a romantic glow without spending a fortune on elaborate centerpieces from a decorator. 

Christmas Inspired Centerpieces

If your wedding takes place around Christmas, it’s kind of hard to ignore the festive feel in the air during your wedding. You can easily incorporate some hints of the holidays in your wedding décor without making it look too Christmas-y.




Create this centerpiece easily by filling a glass bowl with different color ornaments. Choose ornament colors to match your wedding colors.
