Let it Snow - Winter Wedding Ideas

While we don't like to make it a habit of jumping from Halloween one week to Winter the next, with the snow gracing us this morning we thought it only fitting to share some winter wedding ideas.

Winter weddings now account for more than 30% of all annual nuptials, so what exactly is causing this trend to be on the rise?? 

As fur, feathers and twinkle lights gain popularity in style and decor, so do the rise in winter weddings; but style isn't the only thing that are attracting couples to the colder months. Pricing can also be an appealing feature, with many venues giving a handsomely discounted rates in 'off season' months.

In our very first blog we talked about how the traditional wedding flower is losing popularity and it just may be that winter weddings are part of the reason. It's no secret that flowers don't bloom in the winter, so trying to 'fake it' isn't always something couples opt to do, and alternatives to flowers are a perfect solution. 

Below we will discuss some stationary and decor ideas that are perfect for our cold weather couples.

Instead of traditional flowers, decorated hand muffs are the perfect accent for your girls!

Since winter months often eliminate outdoor celebrations simple and elegant decor can dress up any indoor space. White branches look beautiful lining the aisle of your ceremony.

With Christmas being the staple of the winter, invitations and stationary that mimic a gift  are beautiful and classy, regardless of the event!
