Winter is often seen as a bittersweet end to the year, but for wedding parties, it offers so much more.

Embrace the winter romance and plan your winter wedding with The Historic Post Office as your partner. Between decoration, food, and theme, here are five great tips for planning a fantastic winter wedding in Kansas!

Go for a Woodland Theme

Here are a few ideas to consider:

  • Faux fur accents: Either draped over your dining chairs or bridal party, fur is an elegant and cozy detail to add to your winter wedding theme.
  • Paper snowflakes: These are simple-but-great looking decorations to use as placemats or as garlands.

Eat Delicious, Cozy Food

With winter comes amazing, soul nourishing food. Both family’s favorite winter dishes and traditions can share the spotlight for the reception.

Try these delicious winter ideas:

  • Drinks: Hot chocolate or hot mulled cider can warm up guests after a brisk ceremony, and can add delicious flavors to your wedding festivities.
  • Food: A baked potato bar, with a variety of toppings like cheese and bacon, will keep things simple and pleasing for you and your guests.

Try Unique Cake Ideas

Get inspired by these winter wedding cake themes:

  • Marble Cake: Capture the perfect color pallet of winter: whites and greys swirled together to make an elegant centerpiece for any wedding. It’s refined, composed, and beautiful.
  • Copper Colored Cake: Reminiscent of bright bells, and beautifully compliments the whiteness of winter snow.

Embrace Floral Accents

For the true winter lovers out there, bring the outdoors inside with an abundance of complementary decorations.

Here are a few ideas to consider:

  • Centerpieces: Make them unique by freezing flowers inside an ice sculpture. This is sure to wow your guests and look amazing for pictures.
  • Bridal Party: Bouquets and boutonnières of winter flower can accent the season’s delicate beauty. Use subtle hints of the forest like Cedar, Juniper, and Redwood.
