January is a winter-filled, whimsical time of year that evokes images of warm, cozy fires, families gathering around hearths, hearty meals and heavy drinks. Often overlooked by couples, winter offers a spectacular time of year to celebrate unions and weddings.

The winter months are generally more budget-friendly, as venues experience a dip in guests and are often looking to fill these slots, which results in deeply discounted prices. Instead of clamoring to have a spring or summer wedding, couples can enjoy winter’s chilly, nippy weather and create their own winter wonderland.

  • Wedding Themes – Aglow with possibilities, winter weddings can incorporate the following into wedding themes: winter weather, snow, a blizzard, snowflakes, icicles, penguins, polar bears or more formal wedding themes.
  • Wedding Colors – Winter is the perfect season for embracing bold, dark colors. Whimsical pastels are reserved for spring, which allows winter weddings to embrace rich navy blue, midnight blue, plum, burgundy, garnet, emerald green, hunter green, gold or deep turquoise.
  • Black and White – A classic black and white wedding fits perfectly with January’s winter theme. By simply incorporating an elegant black and white color theme, couples can add instant drama and class to any wedding. If couples prefer brown tones, consider incorporating deep brown paired with classic cream or ivory.
  • Wedding Flowers – The cold months of January doesn’t mean brides have to go without seasonal flowers. Popular floral arrangements include roses, tulips, carnations, calla lilies, freesias, daffodils, Bells of Ireland, stargazer lilies, scabiosas, orchids, gladiolas and delphinium. Winter is also an ideal time to embrace classic, timeless silk flower arrangements.
  • Favors – January weddings highlight a number of unique favor opportunities. Couples can give mint tins, gifts with winter-themed wrappers, snowflake key rings, bookmarks, picture frames, white chocolates, frosted sugar cookies, soaps, white tea candles, miniature snow globes, drink coasters, hot chocolate, gourmet coffee, crystal paperweights, silver-wrapped candies, ice cream scoops, wine-stoppers, scented sachets or bath salts.
  • Décor – Winter themes can incorporate nature-filled elements, such as pine cones, berry clusters, garlands, evergreens, wood and branch décor. Snow themes are stunning and can be created using ice sculptures, crystal place settings or shimmery centerpieces. Colored or white lights can be strung from ceilings or around chandeliers to create a winter-themed ambiance. Additionally, silver bells always look good paired with winter wonderland décor.
