Winter weddings! There are so many possibilities. Pocking a dress is usually first on the list of things to do. Maybe you want to be a fluffy billow of snowflakes Or, maybe you have a vision of being a snow queen or an ice princess or the sexy Hollywood star on the red carpet. Make a statement with a red dress in the whiteness of winter or glide down the aisle in satin elegance. Whatever your vision, there is a dress for you.

Once you have that perfect confection to wear, you can start to think about the other things that will create your winter wonderland. I just love these cakes, pure and lovely. And, what better to have sitting on the tables for dessert but these chocolate snowflakes. This icy raw bar as a fabulous addition to any wedding in the winter months. And these branches with crystals give a wintry sparkle to this table. White bouquets are perfect to keep that white theme. But, this amazing red bouquet will surely give a warm light to a white wedding. When it comes to favors, these interesting and unique ideas really finish the winter theme in style. Potted orchids or rosemary infused sea salt in cute little jars. And, if you are really creative and like ancient tradition, then how about this paper compote filled with sugar coated almonds. They are sure to bring you good luck. Thanks to Martha Stewart weddings for these photos.
Whatever your taste, whatever your vision, a winter wedding doesn't have to be dark. My own daughter got married in February. She wore a white tulle Lazaro gown with a silver embroidered lace overlay. Her girls wore silver tulle skirts with satin, corseted bodices. Her flowers were white with sprayed, silver accents. The centerpieces were simple floating candles and mums in silver vessels. And the cake was the palest silvery blue with painted snowflakes and a Swarovski crystal snowflake for a cake topper. It was very understated, but really elegant and we all felt like we were in an icy glade. So, use your imagination and warm up to the idea of a beautiful winter wedding.
