two glasses of hot chocolate

1. Hot Chocolate Bar - 112.7 million TikTok views
While traditional wedding fayre often includes champagne toasts and wine, a hot chocolate bar offers a warm, decadent, and customisable alternative for the colder months. As the evening progresses and temperatures drop, guests can enjoy a sweet treat to keep them going on the dance floor. For younger guests or for those who don't drink alcohol, a hot chocolate bar also provides a great non-alcoholic option. With over 112.7 million TikTok hashtag views, the hot chocolate wedding bar trend is set to take the winter wedding season by storm!

wedding reception with lots of crystal details

2. Crystal Wedding - 2.8 million TikTok views
Amassing over 2.8 million views on Tiktok, the crystal wedding trend refers to wedding decor that incorporates crystals and gemstones into the celebration. This trend has gained popularity in recent years, and often involves the use of crystals for their aesthetic appeal, symbolism, or spiritual significance. Some couples might choose crystals that align with their intentions for the wedding day, such as love, harmony, or protection. Others may wish to use them purely for aesthetic appeal, incorporating them into the wedding bouquet, jewelry, or tablescapes. Wedding invitations and stationery may also feature crystal-inspired designs, such as watercolor crystals or foil-stamped crystal patterns.

3. Confetti Cones - 1.2 million TikTok views
With 1.2 million views on TikTok, the confetti cone trend shows no sign of slowing down this winter. The confetti can be chosen in colors that match the winter theme, such as silver, white, or icy blue. Snowflake shaped confetti is also a popular choice for the winter months, providing a fun and quirky way to welcome the newlywed couple! Couples can also choose to create or customize their confetti cones, adding a personal touch to the decor. Lastly, if your winter wedding is taking place indoors, where traditional rice or flower petal tosses may not be suitable, confetti cones provide a clean and easy way to celebrate without harming the environment or venue.

4. Wedding blankets - 87.4k TikTok views
Winter weddings often include evening receptions, and as the temperature drops after sunset, blankets can be particularly useful for guests who want to stay outside and enjoy the celebration. Blankets can also add to the overall aesthetic and atmosphere of a winter wedding. They can be incorporated into the decor, with various colors and patterns that complement the theme. Amassing over 87 thousand views on TikTok, wedding blankets are a beautiful and functional addition to any winter wedding.

5. Wedding mocktail - 67.2k TikTok views
Not all wedding guests may wish to consume alcohol. Offering mocktails ensures that everyone, including non-drinkers, can enjoy a refreshment during the celebration. Mocktails have become increasingly popular over the past few years, with wedding mocktails boasting over 67 thousand TikTok hashtag views.

Some favourite winter wedding mocktails include: Winter mojito (1.8 million TikTok views) Virgin winter sangria (51.9k TikTok views) Winter pomegranate punch (30.6k TikTok views)

Liam Smith at Aura Print comments: "Many couples are now opting to include mocktail menus at their weddings alongside the traditional alcoholic offerings. This allows non-drinkers to enjoy a special drink too, without feeling like they're missing out."
