The one thing you’re probably absolutely sure about is how you want the day to feel: like an incredible celebration filled with all the love and happiness you want in your new lives as husband and wife.

The Latest Winter Features

When it comes to the details, everyone has different priorities. For example, I could not have cared less about a fancy traditional wedding cake and all the cake cutting traditions that surround it. But, my dress was really important to me, and Adrian had to entertain our guests with fabulous live music! Some of my friends could not have cared less about their wedding dresses but wanted a gigantic, beautiful cake.

So… what are your priorities? What kinds of ideas are going to make your day perfect?

Let Your Cake Go Au Naturalle

Being unique with your winter cake simply involves looking outdoors. Pine cones and twigs are AMAZING on cakes! When you combine them with berries and any other flower in moderation, they make a cake look stunning!

I’ve seen winter cakes that combine birds, pine cones, twigs, berries. I’m a fan of the more simple look, but cute little birdies sitting on twigs is adorable too.

A Snowflake Theme for Invitations

The snowflake is one of the most popular themes for winter. This means that there are a ton of different snowflake-themed invitations.

This one is one of the designs I really like. Not only can you get 50 of them for around $80, but it balances that feeling of winter magic with casual elegance very well.

Beautiful Cranberries  and Hydrangeas for Centerpieces

I love this idea from Southern Living. These are centerpieces made in extra large brandy snifters. You can probably find them in most home stores in your area.  You can also get them from Amazon for $15-$20 each.

Combined with cut evergreens, cranberries, and hydrangeas (usually $10 for two or three), these would cost about $25-$35 each.

A Snowflake Candle for Favors or Decor

Winter weddings and candles go together like… well, like love and marriage.

This is just one of many candle favors you could use for a winter wedding. I like them a lot because of the snowflake motif. They’d make excellent favors or could be used as decor at your reception.

Since they are sold in bulk, you can get a better quality item for a more affordable price.

A Snowflake Bottle Stopper for Favors

If you love the snowflake theme and your friends and family enjoy wine, I think this is an awesome favor idea!

Not only is it really practical, but it’s also really affordable (and we love that, right?). These sell for about $2.50 per stopper and come in nice boxes with ribbons.

Are you loving the bottle stopper favor idea but aren’t sure if you like the snowflake motif?
