Winter weddings are characterized by cozy details to combat the chilly weather outside. Sprinkle in some snow-dusted decorations and holiday motifs to bring the ambiance of a winter wonderland to your reception.
For an outdoor ceremony in crisp weather, this winter wedding idea will bring a bit of warmth to your big day. For a fun and fuzzy display, station a large wood chip basket on the ground before the entrance to your ceremony. Next, roll up plush, plaid blankets and tie thick cords of hemparound them to keep them in place. Next, use yellow chalk marker to write the phrase, “Snuggle Up!” on a hanging chalkboard. Attach the chalkboard to the top of your basket so the message is displayed on the front. Guests will love cuddling under the blankets as they wait for the fun to begin.
