10 Forms of Winter Inspiration for Your Wedding Cake

Having a winter wedding can be very romantic.  The cozy warmth of being indoors among friends and family provides a very intimate feel that can’t as easily be achieved during the summer.  So, if you are looking for inspiration, just consider the beauty of the winter.

  1. Bark With most of the leaves long gone, the colors and patterns of the bark are clearly visible. Trees like the birch have been providing inspiration for décor and weddings for quite some time.
  2. Pine Cones Though the foliage is gone, one can still see pine cones on the trees and on the ground in the winter, and they make beautiful additions to centerpieces and bouquets.
  3. Evergreens While the hardwoods are dormant, the evergreens are still quite lush, and their variations of green are a great source of color inspiration during the coldest months of the year.
  4. Red Berries Winter berries are so beautiful because they provide such a great contrast to the grays, whites, and blues of a winter landscape. They are also a great addition to the look of your wedding.
  5. Winter Flowers While most are no longer flowering, some plants and bushes continue to do so, even in the coldest months of the year. Check out some of the winter flowers that could be used to make your bouquet.
  6. Snow The white, fluffy, soft look of snow can be so beautifully translated into a gorgeous gown and welcoming table arrangements.
  7. Icicles We’ve seen cake artists do some amazing things with sugar, and the way in which they can recreate icicles is among our favorites.
  8. Quilts This is the time of year to curl up with a favorite blanket. So, why not recreate the look of your quilt within the concept for your big day.
  9. Cable Knit Along with blankets, millions of people will be buying sweaters this winter, and the cable knit pattern is just so beautiful.
  10. Feather Down If you definitely love the welcoming warmth of a blanket, but aren’t as crazy about quilted patterns, then let feather down be your inspiration as you bring white feathers into your bouquet, centerpieces, and corsages. Your flower girl could even throw them, instead of petals.
