I totally have been wanting to do the exact same thing! I LOVE winter weddings- they are so, so beautiful but since we’re getting married in August… I think we’ll just do an all white wedding and hope that doesn’t look too weird, lol.

To do a straight “Winter Wonderland” theme during the summer probably would be a little weird.  But if you borrow things and make them more abstract- glitter, white lights, crystals.  Probably not snowflakes, sorry.

I LOVE winter so I’d love to say this would be great, but I do think it would be a bit strange to do a winter wedding so far from winter. If it was the end of Feb. or beginning of March you’re still on the cusp and technically in winter, but in May…that wouldn’t make too much sense. Sorry.

I agree with ThePinkSuperhero, it might be weird to have a full-on winter wedding in the summertime, but you could maybe use somes ideas that are used for traditional winter weddings.  Maybe use silver, light blue and white for your colors (kind of like snow), use lots of crystals, maybe blue uplighting, glitter, star accents (since that’s a little less obvious representation of winter then say, snowflakes) . . . you could use string of lights from the ceiling if you have a venue that lets you do that.  Then it might have the feel of winter that you like without going full-on winter.

Working off what LadyGoodman said, instead of stars, maybe have starbursts as a theme? That way it could be a lot more “snowflake-y” without actually being a snowflake. 

But yeah, a straight up winter wedding in June/July would be odd. But there’s lots of ways to incorporate elements of it into your wedding.

I think there was a my fair wedding episode (or whose wedding is it anyway) where she wanted to have a winter themed wedding in the spring. I think David made the ceremony winter themed and then the reception spring themed so the guests kind of transitioned from winter to spring.

Maybe you could just do an “ice” theme, with light blues and purples and lots of ice sculptures. saveoncrafts has some cute votive holders that look like ice cubes. It still might be a little weird, but who cares, if it makes you and your Fiance happy?

i’m kind of doing the opposite. i’m having a spring/garden themed wedding at the end of feb, which could very well be freezing. i happen to like flowers and pink, so that’s what i wanted to do, and our date didn’t work out for march. personally, i don’t give a damn what people will think. do what makes you happy.

I think you could probably get away with that color scheme if you tweak the design a little.  I think including snow flakes would seem a little strange in the summer.

I am planning on doing a full on winter wedding, snowflakes and all on March 26th, so why not May? At fist I wondered if anyone would think I was crazy, but then I realized that its my wedding and I can do whatever I want, who says your wedding has to go with the weather or season thats outside?

I agree with marchbride26! We are doing a winter wonderland theme wedding in March because we both love the snow! It’s something we both share & love so I think no matter what time of year it’s okay! I wouldn’t want to base my wedding on rain if it’s raining outside so why base it on it being sunny & warm if you want it to feel cold & snowy?

Go with your heart on this one!

Yeah it would be a little goofy to do a straight up winter wedding, I like the idea of lots of white and gold
