I’m Dreaming of a Winter Wedding

From New Year’s Eve to Valentine’s Day, we’ll see brides draped in fur, receptions with snowflake details, and plenty of pinecones. I’ve complied some of my favorite components to a winter wedding. My favorite piece of this post is the setting, from a wedding at Stowe, Vermont, where I’ve spent several trips (although ironically, I’ve never been there in the winter). Scroll through and make sure to let me know your favorite part of winter wedding!

Headpieces

Floral crowns and headpieces have been popular for a while now for spring and summer, but why not add some winter white to your look? It’s also reminiscent of the 1920’s flapper look that’s been seeing a resurgence this season. You can find the look above, along with gorgeous veils, from Twigs & Honey.

Decor

A dash of crystals, pinecones, and rustic touches create a winter themed reception without being holiday influenced. Other ideas for centerpieces and decor are lanterns, white floral, anything glittery, ornaments, snowglobes, and pine. (photos by Levi Stolove)

Invitations

The Setting

Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont on Valentine’s Day makes the perfect setting for a winter wedding. The bride and groom pictured (by Landwehrle Photography) had an intimate wedding, followed by their first snowboard session as husband and wife. You can view more pictures from their beautiful wedding here.

I always wondered who these brides are that choose to bundle up instead of being married on a beach, but I’ve been converted after writing this post! View more winter wedding inspiration on KC’s Winter Wedding Pinterest board.

Etsy Weddings: Trends, Stories, Registry and more!

I was first introduced to Etsy years ago when I asked my friend where she got her amazing statement necklace. The shop was All Things Tinsel, the website, Etsy. I was hooked. I even organized an Etsy Pavilion at the inaugural Niagara Holiday Market, where holiday shoppers visiting Niagara Falls could shop local & handmade-does it get any better?

It was love at first sight when I discovered Etsy Weddings. Launches this year, Etsy Weddings has it all; from doggie bow-ties, invitations, on trend decor, and bridesmaids gifts. Need some guidance on say, how to choose an engagement ring? Plan a bridal shower? Etsy Weddings has that, too. Couples can even register, here.

What I love most about Etsy Weddings is the touching stories you’ll find. No bridezillas here. You’ll find down to earth people, on a realistic budget, who are thinking past the cookie cutter wedding cliches. Yes, you’ll find trendy things like chalkboard table settings and mustache photo booth cutouts, but it’s more about customizing your wedding to your life together.

I picked out some of the top trends that you can purchase on Etsy.
