My fiance and I have had the idea of a winter theme wedding since the thought of marriage came to mind. However, being in wisconsin you never know just how cold/snowy its going to be in the winter months. To avoid that I am concidering haveing the same theme only in October/November instead of December/January. So would it be a wedding dont to have winter in october?

Tacky? No. Slightly odd/unusual? Maybe. But you should have the theme you want. To make it more “Octoberish” you could do a rustic winter theme (e.g browns, reds, ivories, wood, burlap, etc) instead of the classic silver/blue icy winter theme.

November might be okay, but October might be a bit weird.. When I think of October I think of fall leaves and pumpkins… not so much snowflakes and icicles.

I think instead of “theme”–which makes me think of, like, snowflake garlands and snowmen centerpieces, or other really obvious decorations–you could easily choose a cooler color scheme. For instance, frosted jade and navy, or icy blue and a warm chocolate brown. Really, you can choose whatever colors you want for a wedding (though personally I’d save a red and green combo for a December event).

You don’t have to have any sort of named theme. Instead, choose the wedding colours that you most like and go from there. Silver and various shades of blue, for example are lovely cool colours that could be interpreted beautifully without being labelled as “Winter”

jhaley87: It’s kind of weird unless it’s actually winter in October where you live.

How explicitly winter are we talking? I agree with PP’s that a wedding with snowflakes and sleighs might be a bit weird in October. But, you can do subtle things like blue and silver color schemes, sparkly/blingy decorations, clear globe lights, hot cocoa and cider to drink, etc. to give it a more wintery feel.

mmm, I donno. October is def still fall. November would be ok – the trees are bare then which gives a winter feel. i consider Nov more winter than fall anyway really.

Where do you live? If October in your area is warmer, no snow etc, I think it would look off. But if you are in Canada, lol go for it!

It honestly depends on what you’re considering “theme.” Do you mean snowflakes everywhere, snowmen, etc.? Otherwise, I will echo the sentiments of PPs: Go for a cooler color scheme. Varients of blues, greys, and silver will definitely give the vibe of winter without being obvious about it. You can then add other elements of winter in the drinks and desserts.

I don’t see the problem. I would think it’s fun. Kind of like a Christmas in July party. I would totally dig it!

To be honest, it sounds a little weird to me, unless you live somewhere where there’ll be snow on the ground.

jhaley87: Nope! Not all all in my opinion! What’s going on outside (the whether) has nothing to do with what’s going inside (your wedding); other than your guest dressing according to the whether. I don’t even know if I have a theme, I’m just having what I like, want n can afford…definitely cohesion, but not really a theme.

Agree w cinnamon girl. I think as long as it’s not too wintery then it could work.

October I think would be pushing it bc most are still in full blown pumpkins, pretty leaves, etc. mode.
But I think that November would be fine. Where I live November IS more or less winter weather. No so much pummpkins and falling leaves anymore. I would assume Wisconsin is somewhat similar as I live in New England.
