Winter wedding season is almost here, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Sure, we may soon be faced with frigid temps, but that’s all the more reason to host a super cozy celebration – complete with hot chocolate bar, a festive reception and twinkle lights galore, of course.

A woodland or forest theme is perfect for a winter wedding. First, find woodland wedding venue (hint: check out the Intimate Wedding Venue Finder), then incorporate whimsical, forest-inspired details and voilà– you have yourself a charming little wedding that’s sure to delight your guests!

From modern ceremony elements to rustic reception details, these woodland wedding decor ideas must-sees for anyone planning a winter wedding.

This rustic wooden welcome sign from PaperandPineCo is the perfect way to introduce your guests to your wedding theme.
