Winter Wedding Land

This post is dedicated to all of the ladies wearing new Holiday Bling and was inspired by a few of my beautiful girlfriends that are doing just that!

Winter is such a romantic time…fires to warm the room, candles to set the ambiance, snuggling to stay warm, and let’s not forget about the abundance of engagements that tend to pop up during the holidays. 

With so much natural romance during this time of year it makes me wonder why more people do not choose a winter date for their wedding.

Below are my top 10 reasons to keep a winter wedding option on the table...some practical but mostly just because the details and styles are simply too fabulous to ignore:

1) You can stretch your budget. Most venues and some vendors have cheaper winter rates.
2) You are more likely to get the date, the venue and the vendors you want because it is slow season.
3) Candles...and I am talking everywhere. Maybe your venue even has fireplace to light during cocktail hour or to stage as your alter.
4) Incorporate pinecones, greenery (think christmas greenery), bare branches, berries and again CANDLES into your arrangements. 
5) Depending on your location, blooming branches are awesome.
6) Crystals...they give a snowflake, icy appeal.
7) Tights are darling, even under a bridesmaid dress.
8) Fur! I love a bride in a fur coat and the bridesmaids holding fur muffs instead of bouquets is adorable.
9) Get creative with the specialty cocktails (spiked cider anyone?)
10) Hot Chocolate Bar for dessert? Um, yes please!

It is a wonder why more people don’t have winter weddings! 


In my world style, humor, great food, a little fun and a lot of love are definite requirements.
