Tree boughs and other textured greens like rosemary are another great way to stay seasonal without appearing too “holiday”. Try creating an evergreen backdrop for your head table or draping doorways with boughs. You could also attach a small sprig of cedar or rosemary to your menus or programs.
A snow theme is also perfectly in season for January. Add a little warmth to this often-monochromatic color palette using candles and fairy lights. Bright gold accents throughout your event can also add a warm glow.

If you don’t want your wedding to resemble last month’s holiday party, avoid using red and green together (though you could certainly use each one on their own). These colors are great alternatives to traditional holiday shades:
All White: Perfect for a snowy theme! Complement an otherwise monochrome color palette using silver accents.
Paper Finish: Softer but durable paper stocks, like a felt-textured card stock, are perfect for January weddings. Laid finish paper mimics the texture of evergreen tree boughs, if you decide to use a tree bough motif like Billie Bryant Design.
