Before we kick off a brand new editorial theme next week, I wanted to sneak in one last little bit of winter wedding inspiration. As you know by now, I love using stationery as a sophisticated way to get across whatever theme or motif you have chosen for your big day, and in the case of a winter wedding, it’s a great way to pay tribute to the season! Whether you’re planning something frozen and fabulous or cozy and comforting, I’ve found some seriously beautiful invitations from the Etsy makers to get your guests in the mood for a winter wonderland of weddingness. And PS, many of these would be gorgeous for an autumn or rustic/woodland wedding too! (Links in bold denote sponsored affiliate links. SouthBound Bride may earn a commission if a sale is made.)
It’s the last day of the month, and since June has been dedicated to all things wintery, we just had to end it with some cozy winter inspiration. When I saw this gorgeous shoot by Jenna Joseph Photography and Kelsey Rae Designs, I was immediately smitten with the gorgeous and unusual colour palette they chose – a warm cinnamon brown with a beautiful stormy blue, which for me reflects both the cool weather and the warm comforts of a winter wedding. Add in some antique lace to match the bride’s stunning dress, a mix of natural elements and copper luxe ones, and a romantic calligraphy runner, and you have something special in the tablescape department. And let’s not forget the cakes, because OMG hello, cinnamon roll cake! Just the sweetest idea ever, perfectly matched with a copper-brushed blue vanilla latte creation – YUM. From the palette to the details, there’s so much fresh inspiration here for your winter soiree, captured to perfection in Jenna’s lovely pics. Pour yourself a cup of something warming, snuggle up and enjoy!
Morning lovely ones! I’m super excited to get started with this week, as we have so much beautiful inspiration to share with you, and lots of ideas for winter weddings, in line with our theme for June. We’re kicking things off, as we usually do, with an inspiration board. This weekend, I found myself pinning a couple of teal images and I suddenly realised it had been AGES since I did a teal inspiration board. It’s one of those colours that can be a little overwhelming, and I’ve been favouring more natural shades. But I do love a teal, especially a deep shade, and I thought it would be perfect combined with plum and burgundy for a rich winter palette. I have to say, I’m loving it!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – a gorgeous cake defnitely gives me a case of the wedding ‘oohs’. Especially when it reflects the feel or theme of the wedding. If you’re planning a winter or autumn bash, you may be looking to go for the always chic rustic feel (and we’ve rounded up some seriously adorable rustic winter cakes and naked cakes in the past), but there are lots of other options too, thanks to the incredibly creative cake designers around the internet. How about a touch of knit or plaid, or icing reminiscent of icicles or snow? Decorations like snowflakes and antlers, pinecones, gingerbread houses or snowy peaks? Simple white cakes glammed up with evergreen, sugar crystals, or berries? Or simply a nod to Scandi style with a traditional Norwegian/Swedish/Danish kransekake? Each one of the cakes below channels a winter wonderland vibe, but with the most stylish of executions. Let’s get cake-spired! ;)
Hello lovelies! After a few days off being under the weather last week, I’m back in action and ready to share some gorgeous winter inspiration with you today! We’re kicking things off with an inspiration board, and what could be better or more classic than a white on white colour scheme? It’s perfect for a wintery wedding (whether or not you have snow to make the look complete) – just add a few gentle neutrals and metallics and otherwise keep things clean and crisp and… well, even. (Aaaaand now I’ll be humming Good King Wenceslas all day, thanks brain.) Paired with a beautiful lace sleeve wedding dress, it’s winter wedding perfection! (This post contains affiliate links)
