If you’ve ever been to a formal event and vastly underdressed for the cold, you know that it can really put a damper on the entire experience—especially if there’s not a way for you to get warm.

Having a winter wedding opens up a world of different design options, as opposed to summer or fair-weather weddings that so many of us are accustomed to.

If you decide to have your Dream Wedding during the winter time, or even late fall, you’ll need to comprise a way to keep your guests warm! Luckily, there are tons of clever and adorable ways to do exactly that. Keep reading for our Pinterest-inspired ideas!


A pashmina is a thin but cozy wrap that will look perfect paired with the formal dress that your guests are already wearing to your wedding. A basket of multi-colored pashminas with a cute sign or tag will be absolutely adorable, but also functional for guests that need them!

​For an incredibly cozy and posh reception space, adorn your chairs with fur! (Realistically, it may be in your best interest to use faux fur, as some guests may have animal allergies. But that’s up to you!)

These seats wrapped in warm, eclectic blankets are so cute. For a more homey reception space where the elegant fur doesn’t fit, these blankets are absolutely perfect.

If you don’t want to adorn every chair with a blanket (because, let’s be honest, that’s a lot of blankets) having a blanket stand for the guests that need them is a great way to make sure you can keep them warm. We love the way this couple decided to set up a rustic ladder of non-matching but stylish blankets!
