Flower Crown Favorites

Flower crowns started as a very indie trend that was mostly popular with boho brides. Now, flower crowns are becoming more and more mainstream. This trend has also maintained popularity through every season, proving it’s here to stay. Sorry summer – winter flower crowns are the new and improved take on this look! They’re cranberry filled and flawless in burgundy hues. Here are a few of our favorites for your winter wonderland wedding!

Winter Wonderland Furs

One HUGE winter wedding trend that we’ve noticed is fur cover-ups for brides. It seems a touch of fur adds just the right amount of glamour and warmth to your bridal look. We’re in love with the magic a fur brings to winter wedding photography too. If you’re worried about staying warm on your big day, let these images inspire you to wrap yourself in a fur cover-up:

Winter Wedding Wonderland

Working in the wedding industry, I have learned that “wedding season” is generally confined to the spring and summer months. Winter is often overlooked because of the disadvantages of chilly weather, however it has it’s advantages as well! Bring in the magic and warmth of the season with these festive touches!

Eat, Drink, and be MERRY!

There’s not much better than cozying up to a warm cup of hot chocolate. Keep your guests comfortable with a hot chocolate bar and customized cup sleeves featuring the bride and groom’s names.

Bring the seasonal elements indoors to embrace the holidays without being too cliche. Pine in particular offers as an easy centerpiece that also infuses wonderful aromas into the space!

Pick a venue you’ll love snowfall or sunshine.

Don’t rely on pristine white snow at your venue for photographs and atmosphere. Weather is unpredictable so make sure you will love your venue in any weather. Control only those things that you can!
