Add Winter DetailsAdding sparkling glitters or simple charms can give any wedding program a frosty touch. Snowflake charms can be found at Goody Beads, as well as mittens, penguins and angels.

Roll your programs and tie them up with icy white ribbon and a jingle bell. Silver accents, such as ribbons, faux leather or beads add elegance to winter wedding programs of any style.
Papers, Inks and GraphicsMimic piles of new fallen snow by adding white details to a white program. For example, add ivory snowflakes to white background paper and then wrap your programs in white ribbon or raffia. Or stack cream accents on heavy linen papers to contrast with winter blue wording and graphics. Papers are available in a broad range of winter scenes to add the seasonal detail you need. Scrap book and stationary stores have racks of papers in various weights and designs to allow a bride and groom to highlight the parts of winter that best fits their program. Grab a selection of papers in different weights and backgrounds to test your wedding program design.

A simple ink color change or switch from flecked paper to linen can dramatically alter the appearance of a program. Get creative with this part of your wedding stationary and add the touches which say winter to you. Dancing penguins or falling snowflakes, the choice is entirely up to you and your groom.
