Here are some decor tips and ideas for your winter beach wedding that'll leave everyone speechless!


Wedding Arch

Arches have been especially popular in weddings in recent years, as it's a great way to decorate the backdrop of the ceremony or any other space of the celebration.

And winter might be the best time for this type of decor, as it can be a representation of a Christmas wreath, only without the lights or holiday details. Simply a delicate and elegant piece to frame you and your partner while exchanging vows and rings!

Glass Knick Knacks and White Candles

Winter will always remind us of the cold, and on Mexican beaches, you won't feel it, but you can bring a touch of the same feeling with icy decor. 

Glass is a material that is ideal for looking like ice, so you can fill your tables with glass cups, vases, and bottles to give that unique touch of the season.

Combine the crystal decoration with white candles and you'll have a beautiful setting worthy of the winter season.

Dreamy Lighting

Lighting plays a very important role in wedding decoration! Together they can really set the vibe of the event.

For winter, think of placing strips of lights on the dance floor that look like stars, but also like falling snow! They'll be the perfect lighting for your winter wedding, as they'll create a magical and dreamlike atmosphere. Plus, your photos will look amazing.

Cool-toned Flowers and Nature Elements

Finally, we have the floral decor!

Flowers in cooler shades are perfect for winter weddings. They mesh perfectly with the popular palettes of the season as well as with the glassware and help give that winter atmosphere that we're looking for your wedding.

Add touches of other nature to the flowers, such as dry leaves, branches, and pieces of wood, and your tables will look absolutely enchanting.
