Winter white wedding ideas inspired by an ice storm
Who here’s planning a winter wedding right about now? If you love the light, soft colors of spring but have a winter date in mind, these pastel wedding ideas will be right up your alley. Stylist Graceful Events was inspired by all the “igloos” popping up during winter in the Midwest—trendy heated domes giving those in colder climates a chance to dine outdoors. The result is a winter white wedding inspired by the shapes and textures of an ice storm, creating a cozy respite from the elements.

You don’t see pampas grass in winter weddings much, do you? Frontier Flowers of Fontana was behind these fresh white wedding arrangements.
We wanted it to look like ice, but give you all of the warm, toasty, feelings inside. At The Ridge Hotel, overlooking Lake Como, a dusty blue and white palette was warmed up with gold tones and honey accents. Clean lines were the focus, softened by velvet table linens, vintage rugs, hides, and furs. Capiz hurricanes played off the patterns of the igloo frame, and lucite chairs mimicked the transparency of the structures.
The winter wedding cake by Julie Michelle Cakes was made to look like shards of ice amongst a snow-white backdrop.
Srsly one of our favorite winter cakes to date!
We decided to forgo a table arrangement as the framework presented a great opportunity for an overhead floral installation. This allowed us to feature a neon sign in the styled lounge, as well! Neat elongated hexagon tiles were hand lettered for place cards, and we went with a shareable transparent menu for the head table. For our bride and groom, I favored a clean and sophisticated look, with a bit of “edge.” Fittingly, an ice storm rolled in right as we wrapped our shoot for the evening!
