Winter Wonderland Wedding Tips

December is here and we are so excited to see some snowy weddings in our gowns BUT snow = cold so how do you prepare for your epic winter wonderland wedding? We've come up with some helpful tips for making the most out of those chilly wedding days!

1. Wear your dream dress. Don't let the cold weather scare you into wearing a dress you think needs to be worn, if you love strapless then go strapless!

2.. Cover up. If you plan on having your ceremony/reception at two different locations and you plan on taking pictures outside, bring a cute cover up for the ride to your reception and for in-between pictures! Pick something that adds to your style and it will make a perfect addition to your pictures.

3. Shoe choice. Wear whatever shoes you want for your ceremony/reception but be sure to bring an extra pair for walking around in the snow for pictures! This is a fun way to show your style a little extra - think Uggs, Hunter boots, cowboy boots, close toed heels, etc.

4. Provide a hot drink station. This is such a fun way to warm up your guests after the ride over to your reception location. Whether it's hot apple cider or hot chocolate, guests are sure to remember this unique gesture.

5. Light. Now that winter has hit, the sun is setting much earlier so, be sure to think about this when planning your photography. Maybe you want to hold your ceremony earlier in the day or do your portraits before your ceremony. This also is a great chance to add some extra sparkle to your day with candles, the ever so trendy Edison-bulb lights, Christmas lights strung from trees, etc.
