Congrats on your upcoming nuptuals! A couple of ideas that I always really like for wintery themed weddings:
– blue, white, and silver ornaments as escort card holders
– hot chocolate bar!!! (include things like white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cordials, and marshmellows!) Something about hot chocolate always just makes a room feel more intimate and cozy.
– use TONS of candles — the amber will warm up the chilly blues in the room
Some inspiration pics!
I love the anemonies in this bouquet:
Tons of candles! :
A little uplighting can go a long way:
Branch centerpieces (painted silver!) are more budget friendly than flowers:

- Wedding: A very pretty church.
Buy decorations ahead, second hand or in the post Christmas sales (if those are a big thing in your country)? Decorations seem hideously expensive as a rule, so with your modest budget it would be worth trying hard to keep those costs low.

Those white trees in the second photo are awesome!
OP, sounds like a nice theme! The only advice I can think of is to not make it too literal (don’t try to make it look like frosty the snowman decorated, could look too cutesy or gaudy?) and try to have the decor be more artistic winter wonderland (e.g. those white trees/branches instead of snowflakes for example). I think if you do that it will look amazing and elegant!

You are already off to a great start with your color choices.
As a pp mentioned, decide what you need for decor and get it this year when the Christmas and Hanukkah decor goes on sale.
The tree decorations are easy and very inexpensive to make. Normally you can get the branches free. If you can’t get prunings from friends and family, contact an arborist or landscaping firm. They will be happy to give you some. When I needed some for a charity event, I put an ad on Craigslist.
You can spray paint them white then sprinkle with epsom salts for a glittery look. Use plaster of paris or expanding foam insulation to stabilize the branch in a pot of your choice.

I had a winter wedding and am posting some pics below. Here are some initial recommendations on decor which I thought really added to the “winter” theme:
– I bought frosted candle holders from candlesforless.com – the “frosted” part made the light soft and the candles look “wintery”
– I included pinecones in my bouquet – which I loved!
– My colors were ivory, forest green, and silver – with those colors its hard not to look wintery!
– I got married in December – There was snow on the ground (nature’s decor :)) and I found that working “with” the environment in this case really enhaced the theme.

We had a winter wedding just over 3 years ago and our budget was much smaller than yours. We had a cake with white icing and blue snowflakes. My husband and son were wearing white tuxes and my dress had silver beading on the bodice and a light blue sash flowing down the back. Since we couldn’t afford much in decorations we used silver garland and blue snowflake shaped christmas lights to line the walkway and we put silver and blue ornaments on the tables. We didn’t get pictures of most of the decorations, unfortunately. The maid of honor had a blue dress and the best man had a bue tie and vest and then the other brides maid and groomsman had silver. For some reason it’s not letting me upload any pictures but I’ll keep trying.

So it did let me add pictures but it didn’t tell me they were added until I just looked. lol
