Wedding in a Winter Wonderland!

Baby, it’s cold outside! Warm up with a cup of hot cocoa and prepare to get inspired by some of our favorite winter wonderland wedding ideas:

{drinks}:?In the cold months, add a special touch to your bar by creating seasonal sips and specialty cocktails!??Some of our favorites are winter mojitos, cranberry sangria, or a post dinner hot chocolate bar. Guests can stay toasty before they get out on the dance floor.

{d?cor}:?Add sparkle to your reception by incorporating candles, greens, and pops of color. For a subtle romantic touch, add mercury glass votives and candle holders that shine. For an earthy and homey touch, add greens to the table scape.

We also love using ornaments.??By hanging them in windows or attaching them to branches, it creates the perfect amount of holiday cheer for your special day without screaming Christmas.

Visions of sugar plums dancing in your head? Probably because a fantastic color scheme for a winter wedding is plum and silver. ?You can incorporate sparkle and rich plum hues by using silver table runners or chargers, plum napkins, or plum and silver place cards.

{flowers}:?We love using snowberries, eucalyptus leaves, and succulents in the cool winter months! These add a wintery & rustic touch to your bouquet or centerpieces.
