Winter Wedding Inpsiration

I am not going to lie but I have never been a winter person. Even though I grew up in the small Northern Ontario town of Timmins which is one of the coldest places on earth with a sometimes  -40 degree weather. So of course I had to tolerate the freeze your face off winds and my eyes are frozen shut weather, but I cant say that I ever really enjoyed a winter. But now that I have kids and am being forced to enjoy the winters haha by playing outside in the snow, skiing and skating it does make the winter go by a little faster. I also found a new hobby of crocheting and knitting (yes I know pretty nerdy and something I never thought that I would ever do) but knitting up a scarf or hat for my kids is also a way I am getting through these chilly days. So now I am willing to give winter a second chance to be one of my new favorite seasons.

Ok so enough about moi, its time to get to the wedding point of this blog.

Instead of dreading the winters, I am starting to see some beauty in it especially on those crisp cool days with the clear blue skies and bright white snow that have started to inspire me with thoughts of beautiful winter weddings.

So if you are planning a winter wedding keep on reading if you are in need of some inspiration.

So what do I think of when I think a winter wedding; it should have elements of nature like evergreen and pinecones, there should be a feeling of warmth and coziness and of course you have to add in some sparkle maybe with sequined table cloths. I also think of adding candles to add that romantic feeling.

Here is a wedding I found that covered some of what I love about winter weddings

I like that it has an earthy and natural feel with the evergreens, pinecones and tree stumps and I like the warmth of the flannel runner. Of course you have to add in that bit of glam with the sequin bridesmaid dresses and faux fur wrap. I also love that they are wearing their warm winter boots.

What about that dress? What will you wear ?

Wedding Dress

So maybe you don’t want to have a strapless dress for a winter wedding why not go for something with long sleeves or maybe add a little lace for that not so covered up look and of course winter is the perfect time to add anything sparkly, here are some photos of some beautiful dresses.

Or if you want to keep that strapless dress you can keep warm by adding a fun shawl, sweater, cape or even a coat
