What's Up Weddings

Winter Wonderland

Crank up the cozy! Summer lovin’ may be a blast, but we are obsessed with unabashedly opulent winter weddings—because nothing says “romance” better than a crackling fire and a snow-dusted first look.

Capture the season’s magic with moody jewel tones, like emerald and garnet. Pinecones, forest berries, and seasonal greens in centerpieces add a log cabin-kind of luxury. Forget silk kimonos; your bridesmaids deserve to be snug in flannel pajamas. And we’re huge fans of faux fur shrugs, blanket stations, and lanterns stuffed with evergreen boughs, which make traditional bouquets look oh-so boring.

For a festive menu, set up a hot toddy or DIY hot chocolate stand, with fun garnishes like sea salt, crushed peppermints, and butterscotch chips. With the weather outside a tad frightful, we’re all for indulging your guests with comfort food. Soup shooters, mini grilled cheese sandwiches, and butternut squash ravioli are excellent starters, followed by hearty mains like filet mignon and stuffed portobellos.
