    Winter Wedding Ideas March 19, 2015 21:00

    If you recently got engaged and are planning a winter wedding, we have got some gorgeous tips and ideas for you. A winter wedding is a special one because you can take advantage of the simplicity of the season. It almost gives you a blank canvas on which to plan an elaborate gilded wedding. You can also embrace the minimalism and keep things crisp with sharp lines and utilize what nature has left behind with simple branches or pine cones.

    Holiday colors of gold, silver and deep greens can become a great palette to work from as you plan your wedding for any time between December and March. We love this color palette that One Fab Day has developed. Deep reds and plaids that remind you of cozy cabin days with your loved one are great jumping off points for a bold bouquet, warm tweeds for the men's suits and a stripped down cake.

     

    For a simple, intimate wedding, a hot chocolate bar is an adorable way to keep everyone warm and filled with joy. Hot chocolate automatically makes you smile and that's perfect for your wedding day. We love the twine and chalkboard accents here on this hot chocolate bar from Upcycled Treasures.

     

    Adding a touch of snow to your winter wedding ideas is a cute accent in the form of snowflake necklaces for your bridesmaids. These from Sprig Jewelry have just the right touch of whimsy and are a piece that the girls can wear after your wedding day to remember the excitement that they shared with you.

    The days are shorter in the winter, so see how you can make candles a part of your table decor. These gilded ones from Weddingstar are gorgeous and we can just see the light bouncing off of them at a beautiful barn or country club setting. Big open windows at a loft wedding in the city would also be great for these as they shimmer on a long banquet table for your place cards or a dessert bar.

    Our wedding collection has some great options for mixing the rustic feel of burlap with the elegance of ribbons, tulle, and these fantastic photo cards that let you personalize your winter wedding or winter vows renewal.  If you are shopping for a wedding, pouches are sold per piece with a minimum order of 100.  For smaller quantities, sets of 8 can be purchased at retail under the Silverware Pouches tab on our site. 

    Other table setting accents for a winter wedding can pick up on those frozen fractals of the season with these mason style jars. We like these from make+haus and the tealights in the birch logs are a great pairing with our burlap pouches for a warm winter table. 

    Last, but not least are some great dessert options! Gilded marshmallows from Make and Tell are a festive touch and the White Wedding Cake Milkshake from Will Cook for Smiles is a great sweet treat to add some fun to the end of the evening.

    Fall Wedding Ideas

    For those of you who just celebrated a fall wedding, congratulations! We hope that you had great fall wedding ideas and a beautiful ceremony and reception. Fall has become a popular season in which to get married and with nature's backdrop at arguably its finest, who could blame folks for choosing it. We saw many weddings being held around town and loved seeing the colors in the bride's bouquet or those worn by the bridesmaids. Now, as the temperature dips, we are entering into the engagement season with the Winter Holidays and New Year's Eve approaching. As those engagements happen and for those of you who are already looking for fall wedding ideas for next year, we thought we'd round up some of our favorites for your wedding inspiration.
