Tips and Tricks for a Winter Wedding

A winter tourist spot

So, the love of your life finally asked you THE question, and of course, you said yes with tears in your eyes and a huge smile on your lips. You’ve been dreaming of this day for God-knows-how-long, and even if you don’t admit it, you’ve already been thinking of having a white, winter wedding.

Since you both love skiing and snowboarding near the Chicago area, perhaps that’s where you’ll start your wedding plans. But don’t get too excited just yet. Take these tips and tricks with you down the slopes as you plan the greatest, grandest event of your life.

1. Make your Prenup Photos Cool and Unique

Get on your snowboards in with your goggles, helmets, tux and wedding dress and head down the slopes. Or get the classic “Just Married” photo on a ski lift. You’ll probably need creative and radical wedding photographers, but if you’re into this sport, it won’t be hard to find one.

2. Use Pine Cones, Berries, and Frozen Flower Arrangements

Pine cones can be good name card holders on your reception table. You can incorporate them into your entourage’s corsages, or your table decors. Mix that with berries of different shapes and sizes to get the perfect winter feel. And yes, you heard that right, frozen flower arrangements can make for a mesmerizing centerpiece.

3. Experiment with Colors and Designs

That’s not only for your flowers or table skirts. You can also apply this trick to your entourage. Play with lemon yellow ribbon belts or lime green neckties. Have your bridesmaid’s dresses in different floral prints. The contrast of colors against the white snow surroundings will give the wedding a fun and bright ambiance.

The advantage of having a winter wedding is the endless play of textures and colors that you can infuse in all your decors. The magnificence of the snow and the vibrancy of the colors against it will truly be your dream come true.
