Are you planning a winter wedding? Try one of these 10 ways to make a winter celebration stand out and truly sparkle.
Here are 10 ways to reinvent your winter wedding.
1. Wedding Colors
Reds and greens certainly reflect the season, but overdo this color combo, and your wedding may seem more holiday-oriented than you intended.
What's Hot Now: Consider a less-is-more approach to your color palette: Silver and white with crystal accents can add some serious glamour to your winter wedding. For your ceremony, try a white velvet aisle runner trimmed with white satin ribbon, or decorate the altar with a crystal curtain backdrop adorned with hanging strands of elegant white phalaenopsis orchids. If you're exchanging vows outdoors, get your guests in on creating the ambience by giving out clear umbrellas to friends and family members as they arrive.
2. The Flowers
Red roses, calla lilies, and amaryllis are decidedly winter wedding flowers, but if you step outside the flower box, and you'll find a variety of options for winter blooms.
What's Hot Now: Consider fuller flowers, such as white hydrangeas and soft ranunculuses. White boutonnieres can be handsome when they're accented with greenery, but they also look great with a simple white ribbon. Add sparkle to your bouquet by wrapping the stems in ribbon embellished with crystals.
Since winter weddings are usually held indoors (it's an ideal time for ballroom receptions), they often call for a more formal invitations.
What's Hot Now: A black-tie event is nicely conveyed by heavy cardstock and a navy blue, chocolate-brown, or even eggplant font with hand calligraphy. For a fresh way to achieve a formal tone for your winter wedding, use thick, frosted Plexiglas invitations in white scripted ink. Send the sturdy invites out to all your guests tucked into silver envelope liners.
Go beyond glowing candles to add both warmth and romance to your reception site.
What's Hot Now: If you want to heighten the drama, bring in the icy outdoors with ice-carved vases on your reception tables. Have your florist fill the vases with tall winter-white branches and hanging crystals to reflect the light from the tables. Surround the centerpieces with votive candles, and top your tables with white dupioni table linens and frosted glass china.
5. Escort Cards
Miniature sleighs and holly motifs stamped onto your escort cards would spell out the season pretty clearly, but they might not dazzle your guests.
What's Hot Now: Leave everyone awestruck as they retrieve their escort cards by making the entire table sparkle. Have the cards hand-calligraphed in silver ink and attach them to individual crystals with a ribbon. Hang each from an oversized crystal candelabra centerpiece for a new take on the popular escort card tree.

The wedding industry is a funny thing. It's a huge industry motivated by profits, but the people in it wind up holding some of the most intimate and amazing moments of your life and caring about them and you. Your photographers and your videographers know how you move and think. Everybody knows how you worry and solve problems and how you feel about marrying one another. But other than (hopefully) your wedding celebrant or clergy, no one is more invested in the success of your marriage than your Wedding Planner or Bridal Consultant.
But a lot of people never consider how personally your Wedding Planner takes your wedding. You spend hours working together; they have been listening to your dreams and helping you flesh them out. When you plan your wedding, you don't just talk about what kind of fish you want at the rehearsal dinner, you talk about why you want your wedding ceremony to take place under a large tree and what promises you are willing to make to one another in your wedding vows. You've talked about the kind of marriage you want, so he or she can help you create a wedding that supports those values.
They take supporting your marriage very seriously. They're working for you and your success. They want you to have a beautiful wedding and a wonderful marriage. Use their great energy, focus and good wishes to keep building toward the life you want.
They're not family, or one person's friend, they are invested in both of you and your relationship and your wedding. So, hiring a WP doesn't just net you an easy process with an end result that reflects your wedding dreams, it gives you someone who believes in you. That's a pretty great thing to take from a business deal!

In addition to costing less money, cupcake wedding cakes are easier to handle and not as messy. Transporting cupcakes is a lot easier than carrying a large cake with multiple layers. In most cases, cupcake wedding cakes can be assembled at the reception hall rather than at the bakery. Because they’re individually wrapped, the bride and groom don’t have to worry about cutting a cake and the reception staff doesn’t have to deal with plating up slices for each guest. In fact, they needn’t be served at all. Each guest can pluck a cupcake from the tower or “cupcake bar” and carry it back to his or her own table. Cupcakes are also easier to carry home for the guest who would love a piece of cake, but would rather not eat it at the reception.
