Elegant and classic or whimsical and trendy, your winter wedding invitations are an important part of your wedding stationery. Beyond offering a preview for guests into the type of wedding you will be creating, these slips of paper are a bride and groom's first communication as a couple. Make this first step into the world as a pair a unique and personal statement you’ll cherish in the years to come.

Formal Winter Wedding Invitations

Formal wedding invitations are about more than elevated wording and linen paper. Your image choices, ink colors, and font styles all add to the tone of your invitation. Scroll details on your lettering and silver embossed accents will announce the formality of your wedding without the addition of extra wording. Heavyweight papers and delicate embellishments such as snowy satin ribbons and faux pearl beading celebrate winter and won't clash with any other theme images you may want to add. Consider selecting images which have a pen and ink style in crisp black and white to keep the formality while adding some personality.

DIY wedding invitations aren’t just for casual ceremonies. The Printable Holiday has a number of lovely formal wedding invitation designs for you to choose from. For example:

  • Ornate Scroll Wedding Invitation: A crimson and brown scroll design on a simple white background makes this design perfect for a formal winter wedding.
  • Blue Damask Wedding Invitation: The blue and white color scheme on this classic wedding invitation brings to mind a snowy winter day while setting a more formal tone for your wedding ceremony.
  • Grey Wedding Invitation: A sophisticated slate gray background accented with white frosty evergreens makes this invitation festive yet elegant.
  • Garland Wedding Invitation: Strings of blue garland add subtle flair to this modern yet stylish invitation choice.
