Winter weddings are so enchanting. What would be more lovely than featuring the glittery natural wonders of the world we all love, and having a snowflake theme wedding? Think anything that sparkles… 1920′s fringe and hand beading, twinkling fairy lights, vintage brooches, mulled wine and festive drinks… the possibilites are endless!
The fabulous crystal snowflake bouquet found on Etsy, is made up of three layered frosted acrylic snowflakes surrounded by crystal acrylic beads of “ice”, and a petite handle tied with white satin ribbon. This is a truly special bouquet. If you order the bouquet, it comes with a matching snowflake or icicle boutonniere for your groom, and there is a matching corsage to order as well.
Like the wedding featured on Love My Dress above, winter weddings give the bride the opportunity to accessorise with shrugs, leggings, and an extra bit of glitz and glamour to stand out against the white of snow. Check out our post on BLHDN’s perfect winter vintage bridal accessories for more inspiration. They also have a beautiful line of cover ups, like this stunning Trickling Caplets piece that resembles an icicle with 1920′s inspiration.
If there isn’t any snow on your big day, and you were hoping for some, head on over to Save On Crafts, and pick up some snow confetti to have your guest sprinkle on you as you and your groom walk back down the aisle as an officially married couple!
Another super cute idea – keep your guests toasty and have a hot cocoa bar, (or check out this DIY with free printables) and create some of these heart or snowflake shaped “marshmellows” which are actually Cool Whip frozen on a pan and simply cut out with cookie cutters. Have Pirouette, candy canes, peppermint sprinkles and cinnamon sticks as well. Or, use the “marshmallows” in take home kits as your favours!
Use Martha Stewart’s crafty screw-punched candle holders to add some winter glamour to your table settings as well. Also, it’s simple to create an ethereal snowflake banner as a substitute for traditional wedding bunting to place over your dessert or guestbook table.
