Cold-weather weddings are all the rage these days, and for good reason. From the beautiful winter wedding trends to those lush wintry flower crowns, the big day is just so much bigger + better with a little snow and coziness in the mix. We’ve already shown you our Scandanavian-inspired wedding ideas, but this time around we’re looking to Canadian-style ideas for a stylish and cozy winter wedding. Think: hot chocolate, vintage snow shoes, blankets, maple leaves and, of course, maple syrup! Scroll on and use Canada as your muse with these 15 nature-inspired wedding ideas.
1. Whistle-Wetting Whisky: The best Canadian-inspired wedding cocktails are definitely whiskey-based. Make sure you use a Canadian whisky (yes, they spell it without the “e”), like Canadian Club or Crown Royal, for authenticity. (Photo via Bring to Light Photography / Style Me Pretty)
2. Forest Silhouette: When in Canada, just put an elk on it. This gorgeous cake’s wintry vibe is amped up with scattered berries and greenery. (Photo via Precious Pictures Photography / Style Me Pretty)
3. Wintry Bar Garland: Deck out your bar with a thick garland of glossy leaves for a rad rustic vibe. It’s an easy, bloom-free way to keep the bar pretty — a must since it’ll be a popular spot for guests to kick back those Canadian whisky-based cocktails.

4. Cozy Hot Cocoa Bar: We’re willing to bet Canadians drink a LOT of cocoa come wintertime. Keep guests warm and busy with a DIY hot cocoa bar filled with extra-fun toppings like toffee and peppermint sticks. (Photo via Hawthorne and Main)
5. Chic Antler Centerpieces: If you’re going for a forest-y Canadian theme, don your reception tables with whitewashed antlers to perfect the outdoorsy look. Pair with creamy white candlesticks and touches of gold to glam it up. (Photo via Megan Welker Photography / The Perfect Palette)
6. Adorable Adornment: Go for the snow princess look with a beaded tiara, like this gorgeous bride who got hitched in the Canadian Rockies. Just be sure to pair it with a winter wedding coverup to complete the look. (Photo via Nina and Wes Photography)
8. Sweet Maple Syrup: Nothing says Canada quite like maple syrup. If you’re looking to gift guests with a Canadian-inspired wedding favor, wrap twine or ribbon threaded with a cute note around a bottle of maple syrup for a sweet treat. (Photo via Snap! Weddings / Style Me Pretty)
9. Snow Shoe Accessories: Talk about a next-level cupcake display. Embrace those chilly, snowy Canadian winters by using vintage snowshoes in your wedding decor. Bonus points if you get some photos donning said snowshoes. (Photo via Genevieve Albert Photography)
10. Classic Red and White: Take a cue from Canada’s flag and incorporate rich reds and creamy whites into your wedding color palette. The red looks extra cheery in the wintertime and really pops against snow. (Photo via Purple Tree Photography)
11. Classy Camp Canteens: To evoke a Canadian camp feel, use plaid canteens instead of traditional vases to keep your flowers hydrated. Talk about an easy way to add some color to your reception tables. (Photo via Jenna Henderson Photography)
12. Touches of Texture: A Canadian wintertime look doesn’t have to be all about classic cold-weather hues like red and white. Change your wedding look up with an icy palette of pastels — just be sure to add some warmth and texture, like with this fuzzy fabric drapery for the couple’s chairs.

13. Mousse Moose Cake: Canada’s most famous forest creature can add a whole lot of cuteness to your wedding dessert table. Feel free to play around with brighter colors for a more modern look. (Photo via My Name Is Yeh)
14. Wrapped in Warmth: It’s no secret that Canadian winters aren’t exactly toasty. Harness that Canadian wintertime style and stay warm during your bridal portrait sesh with a faux fur wrap. (Photo via Archetype Studio / Wedding Sparrow)
15. All Bundled Up: Don’t forget to keep your guests warm too! Set out baskets full of soft blankets in earthy, neutral shades to stylishly fend off those chilly days. (Photo via Leo Patrone Photography / Style Me Pretty)
