“Ice Palace” – A Winter Wedding Theme Moodboard and styling ideas

Today it gives me great pleasure to share a Winter Wedding Theme Moodboard and styling ideas for an icy, snowy inspired day.

This theme is loosely based upon Swedish Lapland, widely regarded as Europes “last wilderness”.

The elements taken from this are the glittering forests, frozen lakes and the enchanting northern lights and the illusion you want to aspire to, is that of an Ice Palace.

The colour palette suggested for this wedding or party theme would be white, silver or ice blue or elements of them all.

A marquee would work best for venue but similarly a large hall or spacious room could be transformed with some imaginative drapery.

Lighting plays a key role and twinkle lights in the marquee or hall ceiling would give the impression of the wonderful night sky in the north.

Clever use of blue uplighters around the corners of your room would give the effect of an icy void.


For table presentation, crisp white table linens accessorised with silver or pale ice blue napkins, and if choosing chair covers, pale blue or silver sashes.

For centrepieces a mirrored plate would give the effect of an icy pool especially if accentuated with table diamonds for that extra bit of icy bling.

In the middle of these plates, various arrangements would be effective.

-a hurricane lamp with a large church candle surrounded by white or blue blooms

-a crystal or white candelabra with pale blue or striking white candles

-a vase with assorted twigs spray painted in white or silver to symbolise that glittering forest.


Other venue dressing ideas to follow your theme would be to have some professional ice sculptures for the Wow factor or consider fire lamps.


The theme can be brought through in the wedding attire.

Stunning ice blue or silver gowns for the Bridesmaids complimented with some stunning silver heels and matching cravats, cummerbands and waistcoats for the gents to go with their sharp suits or tuxedos.


Stationers will encompass your specific colour scheme into their bespoke designs and your invitations are the first impession that guests get of your special day or event.
A design that has a little bit of sparkle or a snowflake motif will blend beautifully.


For a wintry twist on the Champagne reception, consider having hot chocolate, white hot chocolate, hot apple cider, mulled wine or egg nog as a warming alternative.


For floristry beautiful blooms with blue hues wil be a striking compliment to the dazzling white of the bridal gown.

You could also consider topiary tree’s with twinkle lights at the entrance to your venue, or as with one of the table arrangement ideas, you could have large vases of white or silver twigs to continue through the glittering forest aspect of your theme.


For your cake, a wintry theme could be followed through in the classic white of the cake perhaps enhanced by silver ribbons or snowflake motif.

Whatever aspects of this theme you bring to your event, your guests will be wowed and their hearts warmed !
