I got married a little after Christmas, so I kept with the wintery theme. my cake had white bc with some subtle white bc piping on the sides and was embellished with silver dragees and "snow covered" pine cones and sprigs of evergreen trees (fake of course) Then, since my colors were emerald and silver, she wrapped a green ribbon around the bottom of the tiers for a little more color.

A VERY long time ago, I made a small wedding cake (my one and only wedding cake) with holly leaves on it. (Green holly leaves, red berries.) I have no idea where the pictures are, as it was LONG before digitial cameras existed. It was simple, but elegant and pretty.
Good luck with yours.

I got married on December 19th last year and although I wasn't thrilled with the execution from the cake decorator, I loved the inspiration and all the guests liked the style. I had 3 square tiers, each with green holly leaves and red berries. A red ribbon was also added to the bottom of each tier. It looked very nice with a gold topper. Don't have a pic available on here, but I think the holly leaves and the red ribbon were a great way to add color, while still having a white cake.
As a side note, it was a red velvet cake and the guests really thought it was cool when we cut into it! Red was one of our wedding colors, and of course lots of people think of red velvet cakes near the holidays. icon_smile.gif

How about using a red and gold colour theme? Very festive and christmassy without being the typical wintery snowflakey idea?

What about white christmas roses ( not actually a rose but another type of flower) with lighter green leaves and just a few holly and berries. Icicles hanging down sides might work as well.

Loucinda's Poinsettia wedding cake was beautiful and needs to be added to the collection too.
Each Poinsettia was hand made and you can see the love that was included in such a task.

Some of them didn't have the middle of the link, only dots...
Did you try 'Copy link location' ?

I was just looking in an old Wilton Christmas book (called Santa's Holiday Treats), and saw a
winter themed 3-tiered wedding cake. Each tier was pale pink on the bottom (I would have used light blue instead) and white on the top, and the colors met in a soft wavy edge. There were white pine trees piped against the sides. The tiers were off-set, and stand-up evergreen trees were placed on the exposed tier tops.
The topper was a white gumpaste sleigh holding a "snow queen" type bride (wearing a hooded cape or gown) and the groom. It was lovely. I hope this description does it justice.
It wasn't a true Christmas themed cake, but maybe it would work for you.
