Planning a Winter Wedding

Just the thought of a Winter Wedding stirs the imagination. You can practically feel the crisp air and hear sleigh bells as you envision the bride wrapped in a stole gliding down an aisle of winter white.

There are so many ways to incorporate the natural beauty of winter into your wedding celebration. Venues are often already decked out in holiday best, needing only your personal touches to transform into a wedding wonderland. Choosing green or red accents among your color schemes can help maximize your benefit from existing décor. Holly boughs, poinsettias and trailing ivy combined with lanterns or candles make any room warm and festive. Bridal bouquets can be accented with seasonal berries, and even natural touches like mini pinecones.  Carry the winter wedding theme through your guest gifts and give a commemorative ornament as a winter wedding favor to remember your special day for years to come.

If you prefer the look of crystal and icicles, blue and white is the perfect palette for celebrating the season. Bridesmaid bouquets of all white flowers accent almost any dress – keep comfort and temperature in mind when selecting the style of their gowns and yours. Incorporate “Winter Wonder” in everything from your ring pillow, to your guest book – even your bridal garter!

Winter weddings are the perfect opportunity to indulge yourselves in all of the favorites of your youth. Guests will love being greeted with mulled cider, a hot chocolate station complete with marshmallows, whipped cream and sprinkles or an espresso bar. A Yule Log cake makes a festive groom’s cake and you might consider including seasonal favorite pies in a dessert bar alongside your wedding cake. Create specialty cocktails that feature peppermint, cranberry or cinnamon and give them fun, wintery names.

Wedding favors are just more fun in winter! Send your guests off with a “Perfect Blend” Coffee Favor, adorable favor mittens filled with your favorite sweets, or Miniature Mr. and Mrs. Snow Globes. You can even order personalized Christmas ornament favors Advantage Bridal offers everything you need to host the perfect  Winter Wedding.
