Winter Wedding Themes
Many brides choose the spring or fall for their wedding nuptials, however there is something infinitely remarkable and romantic about a winter wedding. Perhaps it’s the warmth of the air hitting you when you come in from the cold or the magic of the ground covered with snow.
A blizzard or snow storm on your wedding day can present quite a challenge for you and your guests.
It's a good idea to plan ahead and take precautions for such an event. If a snow storm is predicted, ask your friends and family members if they can accommodate some of your guests who live too far to drive in the snow. You may also want to reserve a few four wheel vehicles from a car rental agency. If you can't get a few cars to use, you may want to consider hiring a bus to shuttle your friends and family members to and from your ceremony and reception hall.
How about adding some sparkle and romance with these all white, snowflake invitations?
For a large reception, try finding a venue in a historic mansion with a large, working fireplace that has picture windows for you and your guests to enjoy looking out onto the beautiful snow covered ground. Large mansions and older homes tend to be drafty. Verify that the reception hall that you choose has a good heating system and will be turned on many hours before your celebration begins.
In an effort to save money on flowers and decorations ask the reception hall maitre d’ what seasonal decorations and accessories will be in place during your reception.
Picture yourself in a long, white satin or silk dress with a white faux wrap and your honey in tails. The winter season suggests ice, so evoke the season by wearing diamond or faux diamond jewelry and of course, a rhinestone tiara.
Very few bridal gowns have long sleeves, so I recommend using a wrap, shawl or cape especially if you will be taking outdoor pictures. If you’re getting married around the Christmas season, consider a red shawl and have your groom and groomsmen wear red bow ties and cummerbunds.
Consider giving your bridesmaids a matching red shawl as their gift for being in your bridal party.
Silver, gold and white are elegant winter colors that look fabulous with red berries, pine and holly greenery.
Amaryllis is a winter flowering plant that will look great in a clear glass vase surrounded by holly branches.
For an added touch of elegance try some pussy willows mixed in with your greenery.
Winter Wedding Themes - Cake Ideas
Consider this all white, snowflake cake. Set it on a large silver tray and scatter clear diamond shaped crystals around the cake.
How about surrounding your centerpieces with these wedding candles and then ask your guests to take them home as favors. You will add a romantic glow to your reception hall and your guests will be delighted with their favor.
Another idea for a favor is to give a snowflake wine bottle stopper which can be used over and over by your guests.
