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.

Snow Queen

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. winter_wedding_dress_long_sleeve_rosa_clara_24

Deck the Halls

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.

White Wonders

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.
