Here are 30 winter wedding arches and altars to get inspired, from Weddingomania:
A wedding arch, chuppah, altar or backdrop is a must for your ceremony, and it should be brilliant and beautiful to make your wedding more touching. We’ve prepared a whole bunch of really cool ideas for your winter nuptials, suitable for every style and taste and matching various color schemes.
Winter wedding arches can mix greenery, flowers and branches the way you like. Braches with white flowers are the most popular choice for a wedding chuppah because white flowers remind of snow, they look frozen. Baby’s breath is a perfect choice for a winter wedding floral arch because it’s elegant and matches almost any wedding style. To highlight the season you can try a fir wedding arch decorated with some blooms or Christmas lights. Eucalyptus leaves are another great idea to give homage to the winter. Cotton and leaf garlands can be hung to create an arch.
As for outdoor wedding arches, choose fir and greenery and minimize the amount of bloom because they are going to wither in frosty weather. Bold flowers look awesome in snowy settings, try that. If it’s a rustic wedding, try branches, fir or pine needles, fern and pinecones to embrace the season. Don’t forget to decorate around the arch, both indoors and outdoors, hang glass votives, place candle holders and lanterns all around to make an ambience. Lights and branches will give a festive feeling to the space.
The most popular idea for a winter wedding altar is a fireplace as it gives a cool cozy backdrop suitable for any nuptials from rustic to formal ones. It may be a working fireplace with greenery, flowers and candles all around or a non-working fireplace with large candles inside decorated with branches, firewood, greenery garlands and other details. Choose the décor according to the wedding style and colors and make it very comfy and inviting, place more lights and candles for coziness.
Another idea is lights or candles placed on frosted branches or a fir needles backdrop decorated with LEDs and candles all around.
If it’s an outdoor altar, it may be some candles on proper stands or a frame imitating a mantel and decorated like a fireplace. Embrace the beauty of the nature around and be married!
