Any season can be wedding season, and winter weddings provide plenty of opportunities for memorable touches and beautiful moments. It’s as easy as embracing what makes the season special – and meaningful to you. Here are just a few ideas that will have you walking down the aisle in a winter wedding wonderland.
Snow Day: Just because there’s a slight chill in the air doesn’t mean you can’t step outside. A bouquet resting delicately in a snow-brushed tree or taking a sleigh ride is a photo you’re sure to treasure.
Wintry Centerpieces: Centerpieces of cotton bolls, pinecones, evergreen sprigs, and flickering candles strike a seasonal tone. Cotton may seem like an unusual choice, but you’ll love how it mimics the snow outside.
Hot Toddy Station: Serve up this classic steamy cocktail to warm guests – especially if they have to make a chilly outdoor walk from the ceremony to the reception site. A self-serve station complete with napkins printed with instructions on how to concoct the cocktail will be a big hit.
Snowmen Cake Topper: This winsome wedding cake was decorated with paper trees and “snowballs” piped from frosting then topped with a marzipan snowman and snow-woman holding a replica of the bride’s bouquet.
Cute as a Button
Bridal bouquets don’t have to be limited to just flowers. Seasonally appropriate extras like pinecones, cotton and berries will add just the right amount of texture.
Hot Cocoa to Go: Searching for the perfect takeaway? You can’t go wrong with a treat that’ll be a sweet reminder of your winter fete. Pack Mason jars with the ingredients for making cups of decadent cocoa. Just add hot milk.
If you’re planning your winter wedding, we offer our congratulations and best wishes along with these tips that we hope will inspire you to add some cool seasonal touches.
