11 Festive Ways to Include Wreaths in Wedding Décor

Stylish examples of decorative wreaths for your winter wedding – no matter your location!

The holiday season is arguably the most magical time of the year – it’s really no wonder that so many couples choose to exchange vows in November and December. Winter weddings exude a special kind of feeling, and what they lack in heat, they make up for in the warmth of spirit. This chilly season makes us so very thankful for the important people in our lives, and what better time to celebrate a marriage than the time of giving? For those brides and grooms who select a winter wedding, choosing décor that tastefully illustrates the vibe of the holidays is likely a top priority. One of our favorite elements to accent a December wedding is a simple, crisp wreath.

Whether you’re hosting your nuptials in snowy Colorado or sunny Florida, a wreath can add a little extra dose of holiday cheer. What’s more: these festive decorations don’t just come in the traditional green – they can be made from bright florals, curved branches, and even various pieces of fabric. You have many more options than you may think! If you’re thinking of incorporating a wreath into your ceremony or reception motif regardless of the season in which your wedding will take place, peruse the photos from real weddings and styled shoots below!
