Winter wedding décor

How do you imagine your winter wedding? Is it a cool white and silver theme, maybe with a touch of blue? Or maybe your vision is more rustic, with wood accents, evergreen branches and natural elements. Choosing a winter theme for your wedding helps bring all of the pieces together, from bridesmaids’ dresses to the table settings. We love this cool white and off-white décor at The Ridge Tahoe that’s perfect for a winter wedding.

Color, color, color!

Once you know which way you’re leaning for your décor, you can explore colors for your wedding. And don’t think that the only colors for a winter wedding are white and red! Brilliant hues from blue to eggplant or purple are stunning when paired with winter décor. From the bridesmaids’ dresses to the table linens, the colors you choose will make your winter wedding glow. We love this color inspiration for bright winter wedding accents that offset the stark shades of winter.

Take it outside!

Think it’s too cold outside? Think again – winter weddings in South Lake Tahoe are all about the beauty of a snow-covered landscape or the storm clouds looming over the lake. Many brides wear a special overcoat that complements their wedding dress or coordinates with their bridesmaids. From faux fur stoles to a cozy wool coat, you can find something to keep you warm in style when you step outside for pictures. Whether it’s a daytime wedding at the Beach Retreat & Lodge Tahoe or an evening affair at The Landing Resort & Spa, save the magic of winter forever in your wedding photographs.

Many South Lake Tahoe wedding photographers also have fun ideas for trash-the-dress shoots the following day, from making snow angels to downhill skiing. Whatever your special day includes, your winter wedding ceremony — and all that follows — will be a memory you will cherish.
