Whether you’re getting hitched in the Alps or tying the knot amidst the pristine wintry landscapes of Canada, it’s impossible to not feel all warm and fuzzy inside when that man waiting for you at the altar is the same one who held your hand on your memorable ski trips together. For winter-loving couples, nothing is more thrilling than exchanging vows at high altitude. Here we prepared some great ideas on how you can create an equally elegant and rustic-vintage experience for your own winter-themed wedding.
Some Tips to Make the Event Special
Tip #1: Don’t let the cold get you. Adding a faux fur wrap to your bridal outfit is a great way to look seasonally appropriate without appearing all bundled up. It’s an essential accessory for any bride who’s saying “I do” on the ski slopes. Not only does it keep you warm, it also makes you look luxuriously stunning.
Tip #2: Keep your guests toasty and bring them that boost they need for endless dancing till dawn with some steamy, sugary cocktails like s’mores martinis. Those who wish to retire from the floor may opt to warm their bones by heading to your hot cocoa bar.
Tip #3: You may also add some late-night treats with a self-serve hot cocoa station, like a delightful mix of chocolate tarts, donuts and mini cheesecakes. Remember, contrast is incredibly important. Mix high and low centerpieces, and combine wood and crystal elements to effortlessly achieve that rustic-glitz vibe.
Tip #4: The smallest of wedding details can make or break your winter wonderland. By adding simple winter-like decor like snowflake table numbers, hanging orchids, aspen twigs, fur, and gold-sequined linens, setting the snowy mood becomes fantastically easy. Placing hanging votive candles in jars can also give your chilly rustic glam setting a soft, warm glow.
