Winter Farmhouse Wedding: Mad for Plaid

Written by: Val Rasmussen

Don’t let Old Man Winter scare you into thinking this season isn’t for weddings. Contrary to popular belief, sensational soirees do, in fact, exist outside of spring and summer.

Our editorial team can’t get enough of wintertime weddings. We’re heart eyes for snowy scenes, romantic snuggles and blushing cheeks, but how can a couple achieve this look while exposed to Mother Nature’s frightful chill?

Enter Botanical Eden’s Jennifer Hansen and photographer Natalie Felt. The duo unveils a wintery farmhouse inspiration set inside a barn-side pasture at Wheeler Historic Farm (and oh yes, you can have parties on this property).

 

Say, “Goodbye, Frostbite,” and “Hello, Love at First Sight,” with these winter wedding must-haves.

Winter wedding must-have #1: menswear-inspired patterns

Plaid, checkers, houndstooth, and gingham. We love them all. These classic men’s patterns add texture and warmth to what could be a sterile all-white scene.

Winter wedding must-have #2: high-contrast colors

There was as time when the fashion world was apprehensive about high-contrast pairings like black and white. But this year, designers can’t get enough of it.
Here, red anemones and ilex berries pop against white hydrangeas. A luxurious red dupioni silk ribbon polishes off a hearty bouquet.

Winter wedding must-have #3: a rustic backdrop

Barn and lodge weddings—sprinkled with vintage accents likes antlers and pinecones—are here to stay. Why? Because these venues offer warmth and comfort to formal parties.

Winter wedding must-have #5: weather-appropriate accessories

This red coat—with matching wellies—will blow your mind.
Truth be told, we’ll always be partial to the glamorous impact of a fur stole, but this berry-shaded jacket just lights up this winter scene, don’t you think?
