Who said June weddings are the only way to go? With the right touches, a winter wedding can be just as special and really capture the magic of the season. Here are some things to keep in mind to make your special day a winter wonderland:
Your Color Scheme
Remember, understatement is key when it comes to a winter color scheme. Try a white and silver palette with gold or crystal accents. Hanging white string lights can make a charming backdrop for guest photos, and frosted berry candles can add to the coziness. It’s all about details! To go the extra mile, try incorporating frosted glass vases with white calla lilies and branches in your place settings.
Your Food & Drinks
Winter sets the perfect tone for a toasty feast. Start off dinner with a seasonal soup dish, like winter squash with rosemary and nutmeg or leek potato soup with chive. For cocktail hour, don’t be scared to have fun with some gourmet eggnog or apple cider. (Coat the rims with sugar crystals for a special touch!) When it comes to the cake, think decadent and elegant. All white, with intricate vintage details or a silver ribbon is the way to go.
A romantic getaway to a cozy cabin is the perfect opportunity for snuggling in the snow or sitting fireside with cups of cocoa. Plan for an intimate retreat in Aspen or enjoy wine tasting and hiking through the beautiful Minnewaska Preserve. If you’re looking for something more exotic, book tickets for a week in the Swiss Alps or the German countryside.
