Basic budget winter wedding ideas

A rustic theme is ideal for snowy season nuptials. So charming kraft paper wedding invitations (1) like these from Amazon are just the thing to send out to guests.

“Let it snow,” too, as inspiration for a dreamy white Coconut Cream Cake (2) for your wedding cake—recipe courtesy of Snowflakes and Coffee Cake. And on to a sparkling Icicle Wedding Wish Tree (3), which we styled for our winter wedding set and would make a fabulous alternative guest book, too!

Continue the rustic charm to DIY winter table centerpieces (6) inspired by A Piece of Rainbow. Love the frosty touches on the pine tree cuttings and pine cones, and the burlap wrap tied on with twine.

Set up an inviting hot cocoa bar (4) to keep guests nice and cozy as they share in the joy of the occasion. Then, for a sweet send-off, prepare dainty Russian Tea Cakes (5) as wedding favors for them, with lacy tags from Evermine.

There you have it! Winter wedding elements you can make, craft, and bake to keep costs down—while creating a stylish snowy scene.
