Fun Winter Wedding Options

Fun Winter Wedding Options

While we are all looking forward to summer weather, wedding season always runs ahead. While many weddings take place in the spring, summer, & fall we think the possibility of a winter wedding is being neglected. There are plenty of different ways to plan a winter wedding. Choose your winter wedding style from these fun winter wedding options.

1.) Have A First “Day” Of Winter Wedding.

You may not be able to have your wedding on that exact day, however the first day of winter can be a unique day to celebrate. There is no need to have a Christmas themed wedding if that’s not your taste. For dessert options think drinks! Who doesn’t love hot chocolate on a winter day? You can also incorporate warm and darker colors for contrast from the wedding dress and winter white wedding colors. There are plenty of experiences we only have in the winter to incorporate on your wedding day. The first day of winter always adds excitement for the holidays ahead. White, brown, & black can all be beautiful first day of winter wedding colors if you want to incorporate this theme option.

2.) A Fun New Year’s Eve Wedding

Who doesn’t love a good New Year’s Eve party?! If you choose to have a NYE wedding, you will have a fun wedding anniversary day to celebrate for years to come. You could even extend your wedding to go later into the evening to celebrate and ring in the new year with your closest friends and family. Plan on having a TV nearby so your guests can pop back and forth between the festivities and the NYE countdown. Similarly, you can also dance the nice away on the dance floor as the excitement ensues! If you’re lucky, your venue will provide fireworks!

3.) Winter Wonderland, Silver And Gold

If you are looking to have a formal wedding, this option is a great idea for you. Silver and Gold are gorgeous colors that can pull in the snow and other beautiful aspects of winter. You can make it a cozy vibe by incorporating candles and, if your venue has one, a fireplace. Whether or not it snows outside, inside you can decorate with fake snow to give your wedding a winter wonderland feel. Similarly, you can bring the inside, out with your wedding photos by having a fur shawl ready. Your photos will be picturesque if you incorporate beautiful evergreens, white skies, and metallic colors to embrace a winter wonderland vibe.

4.) Christmas Themed Wedding Option

Bring on the red and green! If you celebrate Christmas, the odds are, you are probably a Christmas fiend. The excitement of the once a year experiences, such as Christmas lights or special recipes, will add extra special memories to your wedding day. You can incorporate Christmas lights into your decor. Often, venues already have their own Christmas decor up, so you’ll have to do less work to accommodate this theme. To add a unique twist to usual Christmas colors, you can incorporate different hues of red and green. Burgundy and hunter green have been popular colors.

A Bonus Benefit:

When you have winter wedding it allows you to soak it in before you go to a warm destination for your honeymoon. Then you won’t miss out on the once a year winter season. And who doesn’t look forward to celebrating something to brighten up the winter gloom?

5 New Year’s Resolutions for Brides-to-be


As 2011 comes to a close, many of you may be starting to think about those New Year’s resolutions. If you are planning a wedding for 2012, here are a few resolutions you may want to consider.

 

Get Healthy

Every bride wants to look and feel gorgeous on her wedding day. Make-up and a fancy dress can help with this, but there are little changes you can make throughout the year to ensure a beautiful face and figure for the big day. It is as simple as beginning an exercise plan and adapting healthy eating habits. If you want boundless energy and glowing skin, start tweaking your lifestyle well in advance.

Pinch Pennies

We all know that weddings are expensive, but the cost doesn’t have to be stressful. Start looking for ways to cut expenses several months before the wedding. These can be simple changes like making coffee at home instead of stopping at the local coffee shop or cooking more homemade meals instead of always eating out. Put the money you save into a designated wedding account.

Get Organized

Weddings are more stressful when you are unorganized, so figure out a way to relieve some of the stress. One idea is to create a folder for all of your wedding papers such as receipts and contracts. You could also create online inspiration boards to free yourself from mounds of cut-out pictures.

 

Learn to Relax

As the wedding gets closer, your nerves and stress levels will start to get a little out of control. Start learning how to manage stress now, so it will not impact your big day. A few options include yoga and meditation.

 

Socialize

Remember those people you asked to be in your wedding and to attend your wedding? Well, you might want to actually spend some time with them before the big day arrives. And don’t make all your dates involve wedding plans. Your friends and family have things going on in their lives besides your wedding; find out about them.
