21 Winter Wedding Decorations For A Barn Wedding | Upwaltham Barns

At Upwaltham Barns, we adore winter weddings. The East Barn gives views over the wintery countryside while The South Barn and Stable Bar are perfect for seasonal feasts and cosy celebrations. If you’re planning a winter barn wedding here are 21 ideas for decorations and details you’ll love.

1. To add a little extra colour to your tables, tie your napkins with twine and add of sprig or greenery or even a stick of cinnamon.

2. Lengths of ivy and fairy lights hung around the chandeliers in The South Barn make superb decorations. If you’re looking for a DIY project, consider buying artificial ivy so that you can prep everything in advance.

3. Paper lanterns also look great in The South Barn. Have them installed and suspend them between the beams so they look like huge baubles!

4. Mistletoe is essential at a winter wedding! Why not hang bunches above the entrances to The East Barn and The South Barn?

5. Instead of using coloured real petal confetti, opt for an all-white pallet to give a snowy effect in your photos.

6. Candlelight is an absolutely winter-must have. Line the aisle in The East Barn with enclosed lanterns for an atmospheric wedding ceremony.

7. Create your own winter candle decorations – fill glass jars with water, add some greenery and a few cranberries then float a candle on top.

8. Wooden crates filled with blankets are a great idea so that guests can enjoy the courtyard and Moroccan Snug, even on the coldest days. Add a sign explaining these are ‘to have and to hold in case you get cold’.

9. Jingle bells are a great wedding extra and guests can jingle them as you enter your wedding breakfast!

10. If you’ve opted for a woodland theme, wood slices are great and can be used throughout your wedding as place cards, cake stands and even as table numbers.

11. Continuing the woodland theme, add seasonal berries and fruits to your wedding cake for a simple wintery look.

12. Add wax seals to all your wedding day stationery. Choose a rich metallic and a stamp that includes a seasonal motif or your initials.

13. Fairy lights and lanterns look so effective around the Courtyard and Moroccan Snug, particularly on a crisp winters evening.

14. Add a few colour coordinated candles into your table centrepieces for a stylish and subtle nod to the festive season.

15. If you want to make your own winter wedding favours, how about little jars of homemade chutney or festive mini mince pies?

16. Alternatively, wrap your favours so that they look like Christmas presents or simply lay a candy cane across each guest’s place setting.

17. Wreaths are great decorations for winter weddings. Use groups of large wreaths to create a wonderful backdrop for your ceremony or hang individual wreaths on the bride and groom’s chairs. Bridesmaids and flower girls could also carry wreaths instead of bouquets.

18. Sticking with wreaths, why not make your own mini-wreaths as place cards? Take a length of rosemary and simply twist into a circle and tie. Add a strip of paper giving the guest’s name and you’re done!

19. Light up signs and letters look fantastic at this time of year and can add personalisation to your day.

20. Create a flower-free table centre with candles of different shapes and sizes, greenery and some seasonal props.

21. Finally, for a simple place card holder lightly spray pinecones with frosty white spray and place at each table setting.
