I know that MArch is usually a time for Spring weddings, but I really want to do a snowflake/winter themed wedding! Our original date was in January but we moved it because of all the snow our area gets that time of year. My date is March, which is technically not winter..but I have my heart set on a winter wedding. So far , I have not purchased any “wintery” decorations. ( I am waiting for the after Christmas clearance sales) but our colors are royal blue and white, with some silver and bling thrown in. Is it dumb to do a winter theme in March? will my guests think its weird?

Personally, by the time March rolls around, I’m so into winter being over with and the start of spring that I don’t even want to look at anything that has to do with winter! But that’s just me!!! However, we do get some very cold, snowy March days so a winter theme in March would work here in Canada!
Adding that there is a difference between looking winter and looking Christmas. I wouldn’t do any Christmas ornaments because I’d be afraid (even in blue and silver), it would come off too Christmassy!

Eh, if a bride can do a Christmas theme wedding in early/mid November, then I guess you can do a winter wedding in March Crazy is as crazy does, LOL

Hm. Where I live, winter lasts maybe a month or two out of the year. Spring is in full swing, and summer’s got its foot in the door, by March. I don’t see anything wrong with your colors, but I wouldn’t make it too wintery with the snowflakes. But your colors and some bling? Totally : )

I’m doing a ‘winter wedding’ in March. No focus on snowflakes or anything, but sticking with deep jewel tones and sliver. In my area, March is definitely still winter…it’s cold and the sun’s down by dinner, so as much as I dislike winter I’m running with it. I agree with BanditGirl, as long as it’s winter and not Christmas, I think it’s fine.

Not crazy at all. If you look at the calendar, winter is still in full swing until late March so a winter theme is perfectly acceptable. It’s your wedding, no one else’s so do whatever makes you and your fiance happy.

I forgot to add that my wedding is at the end of March, the 26th. Many years we have still gotten snow in March, I just cant stand spring (or summer) or anything that goes along with them. Im not looking to do a Christmas theme, just sort of an icicle, snowflake, sparkle kind of theme..lots of candles, and our venue has a fireplace. I just love the sparkle and coziness of winter 🙂

Im with the PP who said that by the end of March I am so ready for winter to be over that I dont want to be reminded of it whatsoever! In addition, late March is definitely spring! I think spring usually starts around the 20th. I think your colors are totally fine but I dont think I would add any wintery decorations!

It might be a little odd seeings how your date is LATE March, as opposed to early March. Maybe a very early spring, theme? Lots of candles and celebrating the “frost beginning to melt” kind of thing? I think your colors are fine no matter what the season, I would just stay away from ice and snowflakes and stuff.

Where do you live? I’m from Boston, so it’s usually still winter weather in March/early April, so you can definitely get away with it then.

I guess it depends where you live. Where I live March is not even close to springtime yet, so a winter wedding would make perfect sense.

I got married in Boston last year in early March (March 6th) and I would really suggest you either move up your date or move away from the icicle/snowflake theme. Yes, there is a chance that there could be snow on the ground for your wedding, depending on where you are from, but it’s not likely. Even in Boston we had temps in the mid 50’s on my wedding day. Snowflakes would have been very out of place. We didn’t have a theme but we did use more spring like colors (purple, green and white). Our wedding planner said she had someone do a snowflake theme in Februrary and even then the bride ended up regretting it because people are just so ready to be done with winter.

i say got for it even if it was July! it will be fun and more unique to have the theme not match the real season. even if a few guests think it is weird, it just means they don’t know how to think outside the box and they will still have fun!
