Greetings you beautiful brides! Here at The Bride Box, we've analyzed Pinterest, catalogs, and magazines, to bring you a rundown of the hottest trends for winter weddings this year. We hope this helps you in your quest for the ultimate wedding style!
This trend is hot right now, and it's also a budget saver. If you can incorporate more greenery into your wedding, then you'll need fewer flowers, and therefore bring your overall cost down. If you don't mind a splash of red in the center of your greenery, consider Holly. If you're just sticking with the green, then pine, fir, cedar, and eucalyptus all look and smell like winter and will give your wedding that outdoor texture that ties it all together.

White, Silver & Blue
There is something about this divine color combination that lends itself so well to both vintage/classic style weddings and modern ones. White & silver in conjunction with light blues are nothing new to the winter wedding world, but we are seeing more and more brides starting to use dark blues in order to give those whites and silvers added pop. If you are planning a starry-night wedding, this works perfectly.

2015 has been the year of the bridal crown, and winter will be no exception. We are starting to see brides go more over-the-top and dramatic with the look. This winter will show lots of winter-seasonal elements worked into the crown design. Wreath-style will be top dog, with either white and silver coloring or deep red blooms interlaced with lush winter greenery. We love this crown by Lace + Lilies:

From lights and flowers, to lamps and greenery, hanging elements are all the rage this winter. Not only does hanging decor create a soft, ethereal feel but also provides the added bonus of saving space. Outside, nighttime wedding ceremonies will showcase hanging string lights and quaint, vintage lanterns in order to evoke a fantasy-novel feel. As for receptions, we are seeing lots of that winter greenery hanging in baskets and fixtures over the tables.

Wool & Yarn Wrapped Bouquets
This winter will see a lot of yarn and warm-fabric (such as wool) wrapped bridal bouquets. This method keeps not only your bouquet warm and cozy, but also adds to the seasonal charm. Our Pinterest boards are flooded with photos of bouquets that are filled with white or neutral blooms, and wrapped with a splash of colored yarn such as blues and reds. We are also seeing bouquets that are cinched with a small amount of wool and clasped with quaint little buttons.

Twigs & Branches
What better way to elicit a winter spell than with twigs and branches? This is also a great money-saving trend, as filling out your decor with non-floral elements will cut the need for and cost of flowers. Silver spray-painted twigs made into elegant centerpieces will be popular, as will small branches with tiny string lights weaved into them. Some innovative caterers are also starting to embellish their minimalist cakes with twigs elements, like this one by Greg Marsh Designer Cakes:
