Occurring during the months of December, January and February, winter weddings offer a complement to seasonal holiday celebrations such as Christmas, Hanukah and New Year’s Eve. Couples choosing to get married during these months look for new ways to express individuality blended with tradition. Read on for a look at upcoming 2013 winter wedding trends.

Bridal Gowns

Appear astounding on your special day in one of the hottest winter wedding dress trends, the classic ballroom gown. This formal occasion dress features a voluminous full floor-length skirt and is typically made of more luxurious or ethereal materials. Fashion trends for the ball gown include ruffled skirts, corset bodices and illusion or sweetheart necklines. Popular fabric choices include waves of organza, tulle, and Chantilly lace.

Romantic Hairstyles

Captivate everyone at your wedding with a picture-perfect romantic hairstyle, the timeless bun. This hairstyle is worn with the hair gently pulled away from the face and wrapped into a rounded roll on the head or nape of the neck.  A favorite of ballerinas, this style projects elegance and simplicity.

Look like a goddess on your winter wedding day with a Grecian Updo, inspired by the women of Ancient Greece.  Grecian-inspired updos feature a combination of lifted waves, falling tendrils, curls and braids secured with a simple headband and adorned with a flower or decorative embellishment.

Wedding Cakes

Mesmerize your wedding guests with the newest trend in wedding cakes, the ombre cake. This new icing trend features tones and hues that progress from light to dark adding artistry and elegance to your cake and great for all wedding colors.


Formal invitations are back! Set the tone for your winter weddings with sophistication and style. This traditional style of invite consists of several parts: the invitation, an outside envelope, inside envelope and tissue. Colors for formal invitations are restricted to a range of white to ecru. The invitations feature engraved lettering rendered in black ink or gold. For 2013, laser-cut wedding designs are favored for the decoration of formal winter invitations.


Trending for wedding colors is choosing three instead of two colors for your wedding. The key is to pick two contrasting colors and one neutral. Popular color combinations for winter 2013 include blush pink, navy and silver, periwinkle blue, peach and pearl white; and hunter green, light peony and oregano.


Transform your wedding reception centerpieces with the natural element of cotton in its purest form, au natural on the stem. Your wedding reception will shine like a winter wonderland with soft fluffy tufts resembling snow on trees elegantly arranged at each table. Cotton centerpieces make a romantic alternative to flowers.
