6 Winter Wedding Tips & Trends

If you read the Plunge Project on the regular, you already know how much I just adore [winter weddings](http://theplungeproject.com/fab-friday-finds-winter-wedding-ideas-inspiration) — especially those with snow! And since I know some of you are planning cool weather affairs for the coming months, or even in 2013, I wanted to share a couple great tips for hosting a winter wedding…

### 1. Colors

Winter white is definitely in for cool weather weddings. Pair it with silver for an ultra-glam look, or go with red and aqua to reflect the holiday season without going with the more obvious red and green color scheme.

### 2. Attire

Taking photos out in the snow? A cozy faux fur shrug is a great addition to your wedding day attire. Don’t forget your bridesmaids too!

### 3. Flowers

Senior wedding planner Jacklyn McBeth of Atlantic City’s [One Atlantic](http://www.oneatlanticevents.com/) suggests using winter white flowers to convey a chic and classic look. White peonies and white garden roses are popular go-to’s. I also adore the look berries add to a bouquet!

### 4. Centerpieces

Frame your winter white flowers with with frosted or lacey votives to add that warm, romantic vibe to your winter wedding.

### 5. Drinks

Winter weddings call for warm, comforting drinks. Treat your guests with a chai and hot cocoa bar, or consider making your signature cocktail a warm one.

### 6. The Cake

A simple, white cake is great for a winter reception. Dress it up with
elements of the season like snowflakes!
