Creative Wedding Themes: Winter Wonderland

There are lots of different themes you can use when you are planning a wedding, and as many different variations on those themes as there are brides and grooms to imagine them. Browsing through our online wedding store is an excellent way to get some great ideas for a theme you may want to use. 

That's what we did here at WhereBridesGo.com, and and it inspired us to imagine the possibilities for a "Winter Wonderland" wedding. Here are a few ideas to get your own creative juices flowing for a snowy celebration. 



Decorations
There are a few different color combinations that would work wonderfully for a winter wedding theme. The most obvious is lots and lots of white. The addition of shimmery sparkles gives you that gorgeous look of the sun reflecting off of freshly fallen snow. Silver is a beautiful accent color to use with white, and touches of gold can look lovely too. One other shade that we love with this theme is the addition of icy blues. If your wedding will take place near Christmas, bright cheery reds look fantastic also. 



When your celebration is themed around the season of winter, snowflakes are the perfect thing to incorporate into your wedding decorations. You can find them already on many items to use on the tables and around the room, and you can pick up a snowflake stamp and some ink to add them everywhere else. You'll most likely want all white tablecloths and napkins, and if you desire, pops of color can be added easily when you use this neutral palette. We sell many wedding decorations online with a snowy theme, like our Sparkle Snowflake Dazzlers which can be tied to other decorations or sprinkled around the room like confetti for a shimmery finishing touch. 



Food and Drinks
When it comes to the food and drinks, if it feels as wintery outside as it looks inside your winter wonderland, you will want to serve things that will help to warm the guests up. Offering a variety of soups in small cups during cocktail hour could do the trick, or possibly have small cups of tomato soup with a triangle of grilled cheese perched on the side as an appetizer. For the drinks, a table set up with hot chocolate and coffees plus lots of yummy things to add to them can be fun for everyone. Set out containers with marshmallows, peppermint sticks, whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, chocolate-covered stir spoons, and anything else you like to add to your hot drinks. For the grownups, you could even have some Irish Cream or a touch of whiskey nearby to mix in.  



Your wedding cake is often the center of attention at the reception, until the two of you make your grand entrance, of course! This dessert is another place where you can stick to all white and then decorate it with a fabulous wedding cake top.    



Fantastic Favors
You can give practical favors that your guests can use against a cold winter like cute mitten sets or a cozy blanket. As a matter of fact, if you are getting married in an area with a pretty outdoor spot to explore, you could have a basket of throws in your wedding colors for guests to use if needed. It's also very easy to carry the snowflake idea over to your wedding favors with the adorable ones you'll find in our online wedding accessory store. Some even do double duty as both favors and escort cards, like our Snowflake Placecard Holders which can be taken home after the wedding and used as ornaments. 



Now that you're in a wintery mood, make your way on over to WhereBridesGo.com to see what other perfect items you can find to use at your own winter wedding. While you're there, you'll also see tons of other gorgeous accessories, gifts, and decorations to help you with all of your wedding planning needs.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
