{Fab Friday Finds} Winter Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

My wedding wasn’t meant to be a winter wedding. Novembers in Knoxville are actually usually still pretty warm, in fact, and the temps usually sit somewhere between 50-70 degrees. As luck would have it, though, a cold front moved in for two days in early November 2010, and Michael and I (along with our brave wedding party and guests) braved the 30 degree weather in style. Had we known our wedding would offer a taste of winter, we may have planned more accordingly — although I must admit the trees were perfectly fall colored :) — and used some of these amazing winter wedding ideas…

1. Winter White Centerpieces – The floral artists at Junkerman Jones wedding and event design created these simple yet elegant winter-inspired centerpieces. To re-create the look for your own winter soiree, incorporate flowers in shades of winter-white, silver berries and tall branches adorned with Swarovski crystal strands. Complete the look with silver votive holders, and add an even more wintery feel by using holiday lights in the rest of your decor.

2. A Snowy Background – If you’re having a winter wedding and there’s snow on the ground for your big day, use it to your advantage! Have your photog capture a gorgeous moment like Mary Dougherty did. Just be sure to have a winter coat or fur shrug on hand and some gloves so you’re not miserable while you’re shooting.

3. Warm Drinks – If you’re hosting a winter wedding, help your guess warm up with a vanilla chai and a cocoa bar like this one seen in a shoot on Southern Weddings. This little touch really adds to the romantic warmth of a winter wedding.

4. Beyond Flowers – If you live in a more harsh climate, flowers might be hard to come by when it comes to winter weddings (or expensive to ship), so why not use what you have? As Ruffled Blog explains, the rustic look of pine cones easily lends a vintage feel when combined with millinery flowers or other vintage inspired elements, all of which makes for the perfect vintage winter wedding decor.

I’m going to continue pinning my favorite winter wedding ideas over on Pinterest, so if you’d like to see more, head that way.
