The Do’s of a Winter Wedding:

Congratulations! You’ve officially stepped out of the box and changed up your wedding theme a bit! Instead of your usual summery wedding, you’ve gone with a crisp white wedding! Here are a few tips for you to consider when planning your winter wedding.

  • Keep Everyone Warm: As we’ve discussed previously, you’ll want to make sure your guests and wedding party are dressed warm and appropriately, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding. By supplying blankets, outdoor heaters, warm drinks, and a fire pit, your guests and wedding party will be able to stay warm and comfortable.
  • Incorporate Christmas: Since you’re having a winter wedding in December, why not incorporate Christmas? From embracing Christmas-y colors to Christmas food must-haves, you’ll be submerging your guests in a glorious atmosphere of holiday cheer and a jolly good time! Some ideas include:
    • Colors: Try colors like light, silvery blues, shimmering silver and gold, deep browns, and of course red and green.
    • Décor: mini Christmas trees, presents as favors, and so on.
    • Music
    • Food: Ginger cookies, apple pies, mashed potatoes, and any type of soup.
  • Dress Appropriately: Again, make sure your wedding party is warm by having them wear long dresses, a faux fur jacket, and maybe even hand muffs.

The Don’ts of a Winter Wedding: As we’ve reviewed some of the previously mentioned winter must do’s, we must go over the winter don’ts as well. In order to ensure a perfect winter wedding, try incorporating a few of these ideas.

  • Don’t Fret: This is probably the biggest guffaw of all tips – every bride frets and worries, but don’t! Fretting does nothing for you, so just sit back, drink a cup of mint hot chocolate, go over your wedding list, and relax! Here are a few things you should not fret over:
    • The Weather: Let’s be honest – you chose a winter wedding, so freezing temperatures and a snowy afternoon are what you’re going to have to deal with. So don’t get frazzled when the forecast calls for a colder-than-usual afternoon on your wedding day. Embrace the cold weather and incorporate some of the wedding must-have’s we’ve already discussed.
    • Traveling: If you’re having a winter wedding, it may be a good idea to host your wedding and reception at the same venue so your guests don’t have to brave the white flurry more than once. If you can’t help but to have two venues, hire valets to pick up your guest’s vehicles so the cars will be a little warmer for them when they go to leave.
    • Don’t Keep it Dark: With winter comes a quicker evening. Make sure you have plenty of lighting, such as candles, a fireplace, and a well-lit room. It may be winter, but that doesn’t mean it has to be dark too!

Your fairytale wintery wedding will be absolutely perfect, so don’t fret! By incorporating a few of these ideas and ones previously discussed, you and your guests will have the time of your lives!

Christmas Wedding Tips

Christmas is just 10 days away and the air is humming with Christmas carols, brimming with the smell of cookies and Christmas trees, and presents are being bought and prepared in a flurry of wrapping paper and ribbon. In my opinion, Christmas is the best time to have an unforgettable wedding! Hot chocolate and pies are brimming over countertops and the atmosphere is crisp with jolly good spirits and beautifully laden with soft white snowflakes. Make the best of your Christmas-themed wedding by following a few of these great tips and ideas!

Fun Ideas and Must-Do’s! If you’re getting married on Christmas, than some of these fun ideas are definitely great ways to get your wedding party and guests in the holiday spirit!

  • Hire Christmas Carolers: Oh my gosh, this is probably one of the greatest ideas I’ve heard all day! What better way to get your guests and wedding party in the spirit than having professional Christmas carolers serenading everyone down the aisle and on the dance floor? In order to hire a group of professional carolers, you can go onto websites such as https://www.gigsalad.com/Singers/Carolers/. Just type in your location and see what’s around! Another good idea for hiring Christmas carolers is to check out your local colleges – ask if the theater students are available to sing at your wedding! It’s a great way to get your carolers and support your local students!

  • Hire Santa: The young’uns at your wedding will be in their absolute glory if they get to eat cookies and pies, dance to groovy music, and meet Santa! You can have him as a greeter at the front door at the beginning of your wedding ceremony, or you can have him handing out gifts at the end of your reception! Another great idea is to have your DJ dress up as Santa – seriously though, a groovy Santa is a cool Santa! Either way, Santa will be a huge hit!
  • Gifts: Instead of a table, have your guests put their gifts to you and your husband under a Christmas tree! I love this idea – it really puts emphasis on the theme of your wedding and gives your guests an opportunity to “play Santa”!
  • Guest List: For all of your out of town guests, you’ll want to make sure they know about the wedding date well in advance. The sooner they know, the sooner they can start planning and looking and booking their flights. Also, have them come a couple days early; this will give them a safety net of time just in case their flights get delayed due to weather.
  • Things to do in Advance: Besides having your out of town guests know of your wedding in advance, you’ll also want to get things such as your Christmas reception and ceremony décor in advance. If you’re getting married Christmas of 2015, shop for Christmas decorations after this Christmas. All Christmas items go on a huge sale the day after Christmas, so you’ll really be able to load up on lights and décor for super cheap. Another thing you’ll want to book in advance is your venue. The sooner, the better. You don’t want to be scrounging around for a reception area a few months before your wedding.

From Christmas carolers to shopping in advance, having a Christmas themed wedding is so much fun!

Mother and Son Dance Songs

Don’t stress – there are a billion (almost literally…) different songs for you to choose from! Here are just a few!

Wedding Traditions: Unity Candles and Love Letter Boxes

It’s the symbolism that matters; it’s uniting two families, two heritages, two generations, two hearts, two souls; two becomes one and love is forever lit and shining in you and your spouse’s lives. The unity candle is a representation of what is and what will be your future together as a married couple. The unity candle (or any other uniting tradition!) is beautiful, sentimental, and personal. There are several different uniting traditions out there, so if you’re looking for something a little more original, more personal, here are just a few ideas!

  • Handfasting: This is a wonderful tradition and immediately brings me to the movie Braveheart and the scene where William Wallace and Murron secretly get married and wrap their joined hands together with their two pieces of cloth. It’s beautiful, significant, and incredibly romantic! If you’re of Scottish background, than this is a fabulous alternative to a unity candle. After your wedding ceremony, you can use the cloth as decoration, making it a multi-functional and traditional piece of art.
  • Cord of Three Strands: As it states, you and your spouse braid three strands of rope or cord, signifying a unity of husband, wife, and God. Three strands is stronger than two, and this is an incredibly meaningful Christian tradition. With God as part of your marriage and family, it will be stronger than ever.
  • Love Letter Box: You and your spouse will write a letter to one another (before the wedding, of course!) and during the ceremony, you and your spouse will put the letters in the box. After the ceremony and the do’s are said, you can put other personal memorabilia in the box as well – such as a bottle of wine, a wedding invitation, and so on. On your fifth (or any year after your first) anniversary, you and your spouse will open the box, read the letters, and enjoy a trip down memory lane!
  • Sand Ceremony: My husband and I did this uniting tradition, and I loved it. In fact, we still have the jars out as decoration! You and your husband will have separate jars, both having a different colored sand. Once you both poor the sands in the larger jar simultaneously, you’ll have a swirl of color and a jar full of meaning.

  • Planting a Tree: My best friend and her husband performed this wedding ceremony. Plant a tree in a pot, and as the years pass by, you’ll be able to watch the tree grow – just like your love and relationship!
  • Unity Wish Lantern: This is a neat tradition to perform for evening weddings. Light a candle in the floating lantern and then let it go, allowing the lantern to reach its highest peak and potential, just like your love. This would be fun for you and all of your guests to do together!

The unity candle is a beautiful tradition that is chalk full of meaning. As well as the unity candle, you have several other uniting traditions you can choose from, making your choice unique, fun, and memorable!

Emergency Kit for the Groom and Groomsmen

When we think bridal emergency kits, we automatically think lipstick, nail polish, and tampons. Well, what about the groom and his lads? Just as importantly as an extra pair of pantyhose is for us ladies, the lads need extras too! Help keep your wedding day stress, worry, and panic-free by making sure you have this mini emergency kit for the guys too!

The Grooms Emergency Kit List: You don’t think about it, but what about having an extra set of razors, socks, and deodorant? Yep, your groom definitely needs a few of these musts, so make sure you’re both prepared by taking a gander at this list!

  • Clothing: Instead of pantyhose and ballet slippers, your groom will need extras like:
    • Socks- Make sure you have the right color, style, and size. Black is a good go-to in emergency cases.
    • Shoe Polish: If your groom is anything like my hubby, than you’ll need shoe polish! He likes to keep his shoes looking snazzy, but my Cowboy always finds a way to add a little dirt and dust to his boots…
    • Extras: You’ll need extras like cufflinks, buttons, and corsage pins. Having a sewing kit is a good idea!
  • Smell Goods: You want your man to smell sexy, so make sure he has an extra can or stick of deodorant and your favorite cologne. Let his cologne wrap you in a cloud of manly deliciousness as you take that first kiss as husband and wife!
  • Medical: From cuts to headaches, making sure you have the necessary items to “cure” these issues is important! Make sure to bring a few of these things for BOTH you and your man!
    • Aspirin/Ibuprofen: Stress tends to partner with headaches, so make sure you have a headache combatant.
    • Tissues: If you’re getting married during allergy season, these will definitely come in handy.
    • Toothbrush: Again, those mini Colgate toothbrushes that come pre-toothpasted are excellent. Fresh breath = a great kiss!
    • Extra Contacts: This is a must! You want your groom to be able to see you perfectly as you waltz in a rhythm of ecstatic grace down the matrimonial aisle!
    • Sunscreen: Sunburns aren’t on the guest list, so make sure you bring a high SPF sunscreen if your wedding and reception are outside.
  • Extra Extras: These are the no-brainer things that everyone forgets on a busy, nerve-wracking day! Make sure you have these with you!
    • Cell Phone: Please turn your phone on silent and give it to a family member or friend in the audience…
    • Wallet: This includes everything, from extra cash to your license and passport!
    • Camera: You want to take as many pictures as possible on your honeymoon, so make sure to bring a camera!
    • Directions: Make sure you have the address to both your hotel for the night and the honeymoon destination. You want to make sure you get to the right place!

It’s the little things that make a big difference, so make sure you and your groom are ready for any emergency! From band aids to extra (matching!) socks, you’ll be ready for any oops should one come up!
