There’s something particularly special about a winter wedding. Maybe it’s the chance of freshly fallen snow, the romantic candlelight décor, or the crisp air, which encourages you to cuddle up with your love. To highlight the magic of your cold-weather wedding, kickstart your celebrations with invitations for your guests to have and to hold – literally.

In terms of invitation design (a big decision in the wedding planning process!), you’ll want to select something that represents you, your wedding, and the season. Instead of bright florals, opt for moody blooms or winter greenery, or go for a bold design that focuses on typography. And remember: gold foil never hurt anyone.

Below, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite winter wedding invitations that’ll set the tone for your fête and get guests seriously excited to celebrate your big day.

1. Winter wonderland greenery

This festive invite says 'tis the season!

A little modern, a little vintage, and a lot beautiful – these winter-friendly wedding invitations suit nearly everyone’s style. Adorned with greenery and a hint of red berries, they are a no-brainer match for a cold-weather wedding, especially if you’re mostly swapping out florals in favor of greenery. These invites are printed on textured Mohawk paper with a matte eggshell finish and come with (free!) plain white envelopes. If you choose to upgrade to a custom-colored envelope, though, you’ll receive free recipient addressing. It's a win/win.
