Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Engaged recently? Spring and Summer seem far too soon to create the wedding of your dreams? If you think winter is too chilly a time of year to celebrate your nuptials, think again. Winter Weddings offer every thing you could wish for in terms of lovely and creative options for theme, decor, and romantic detail.
You may wonder how to reconcile an indoor wedding with those all-important outdoor wedding photo ops. It may be a winter wonderland at the local park- so pretty with the snow-covered ground and glittering icicles hanging from the trees- but doesn’t the bride look, well, frozen stiff, in her designer strapless wedding gown? Fear not! An exquisite gown like this one from Rosa Clara will keep you from turning blue, and make you the stunning center of all that winter splendor.
This regal diamond engagement ring would make you the Queen of Ice.
Warming up to a winter wedding day? Start treasure hunting now! After Christmas is a wonderful time to find bargains on icy, silvery baubles to adorn your wedding hall, feast table or wedding favors. Tastefully chosen and creatively adapted by you, christmas lights and tree ornaments could add twinkle and shine to your special day. Just be sure to stick to a color theme while shopping – to keep your wedding from looking “too Christmassy,” we suggest collecting pearly or or neutral shades contrasted with blue or rich brown.

Getting married in December or January doesn’t mean you need to miss out on seasonal flowers. Poinsettias, a tropical plant that have become associated with Christmas, are both widely available and very economical mid-winter, and make a bold yet graceful floral statement. You could line the aisle with dozens, or top each table with one of these graceful plants, and if red seems too obvious a choice for the season, they are available in other shades- including pink and pale green. We think an all-white poinsettia display would be winter elegance itself.
An elegant bride married at this time of year requires an especially twinkly diamond engagement and wedding ring set.
