12 Days of Winter Wedding Ideas - Day 8: Cakes
How sweet it is! Your wedding cake is often the centerpiece of your reception decor and the highlight of the meal. For a winter wedding, you definitely want the cake to fit in with the theme. You could go so many different ways to make your cake reflect a winter wedding. You could go with the ice and snow and have the cake decked out with snowflakes and shiny crystals in cool blues, whites, and silvers. Or you could pull from winter's nature and use pinecones, holly, and ever
3 Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Photographer
When my husband and I were planning our wedding nearly a decade ago, we knew for certain only a few ideas . We were surprised and thankful that our creative and wonderful photographer (Annie-hannah Mancini) was, by way of experience, a bit of a wedding planner. She knew all of the questions that we didn’t know to ask ourselves about the timing of the day, the spot to get married at Fort Roberdeau. She had such great advice. I hope to pass a bit of that on as I share these bit
12 Days of Winter Wedding Ideas - Day 7: Bring Nature In
Adding touches of nature to your wedding is very popular. It could be subtle such as in a floral pattern on your dress or the flowers in your bouquet. Or you could be more elaborate and create elaborate branch arches creating the sense that you are getting married in a forrest glen. However much or as little as you want to use nature, don't let the stark cold of winter keep you from bringing in nature for your wedding. Evergreens are a sure bet, as are the contrast of bright

Worried that a winter wedding will put a serious dent in your wedding gown options? Not at all! Your gown could have long sleeves to keep you from shivering and make your arms a work of art. Or if something strapless is your dream dress, the addition of a shawl, wrap, or cape can keep those winter winds away. Consider a family heirloom (you could have grandma knit something to include her in the wedding planning), or on the other extreme, a luxurious fur-lined princess cape.

12 Days of Winter Wedding Ideas - Day 4: Pinecones
While you can pretty much find pinecones all year round (if you look hard enough), something about them just seems winter-y. Maybe it's those cinnamon scented pinecones that always appear in the foyer of the grocery store just as the weather turns cold, or that as kids, we smothered them with peanut butter and made bird feeders out of them for the long snowy months. Whatever memories you have of pinecones, these cute little seed pods can make some fun and imaginative addition
12 Days of Winter Wedding Ideas- Day 3: Silver and Sparkles
Who doesn't love a little bling? And Winter is a perfect time to add a little sparkle. Silver gives winter's chill a sleek and elegant and sophisticated feel while the sparkle of snow makes even the biggest fan of summer smile, bringing back memories of snowball fights, snowmen, and sledding. There are infinite ways to integrate silver and sparkles into your wedding. Decor options are obvious, but clothes, accessories, flowers, and even desserts can have some sparkle - either
12 Days of Winter Wedding Ideas - Day 2: Winter Themed Guest "Books"
Even though you send invitations before the wedding, greet your guests in the receiving line after the wedding, and visit their table during the reception, it is still nice to have a visual reminder of the guests that attended your wedding. Plus, a Guest Book or something similar is a nice way for your guests to personalize their greetings to you or send you personal messages. There is the traditional book, but why go traditional? Books get closed and put on a shelf or in a d
