The cold weather, fires, soft blankets, cuddling, hot drinks, and the Holidays: all reasons why winter is a romantic and wonderful time of year to have a wedding!
Lace Wedding Dress
Lace wedding gowns have been trending for some time and it is no wonder why. The detail is stunning and classic. What we love about these sleeved versions is the illusion of being just a little more covered but still baring some skin.
As you can see from the example pictured, the lace sleeve goes beautifully with all cuts of dresses whether your style is A-line, ballgown or more fitted through the hip. Not to mention that these dresses would also pair beautifully with a luxurious fur shawl for outdoor photos in the cold winter air.
Photo shoots; who does not love a good snow photo? Falling snow is so beautiful and soothing. It makes a gorgeous backdrop for a romantic photo. What better reason to plan winter nuptials than to have a stunning one-of-a-kind photo?
We do realize that planning a winter wonderland wedding is no guarantee for snow. In fact, most of us here in the South don’t have the privilege of ever seeing snow except on vacation. In lieu of real snow, if you live in a warm climate, or as a backup plan, we recommend a wedding confetti cannon to give a similar look for a romantic picture of the newlyweds either outdoors or maybe even indoors during the first dance! The wedding confetti cannon will shoot approximately 15 feet in the air and cascade down on the happy couple much like snowflakes.
Hot Chocolate Bar
You may want to forego the tropical frozen drinks, but the winter replacements are even better! Create a make-your-own-hot-chocolate bar, filled with all kinds of mix-ins like candy canes, cinnamon sticks, marshmallows, and chocolate chips for your winter wedding reception.
Last, but certainly not least, the grand exit! Sparklers have quickly become the exit favor-of-choice no matter the season, but they are especially helpful in the wintertime when the sun starts disappearing in the early evening. Even if you and your new spouse won’t be partying late into the night, sparklers can help light the way into your new life together.
Through the years, we have seen some amazing and beautiful winter weddings, we hope that these winter-themed wedding ideas come in handy when planning your unforgettable winter wedding.
