Tips for Winter Weddings

October 30, 2007

While the summer is the most popular season for couples to tie the knot, those who choose to marry during the winter months can enjoy an equally beautiful atmosphere on their special day.

Here are some tips to help you embrace the season and turn your wedding day into a winter wonderland. *Bridal Wear:* Consider complementing wedding gowns with glamorous coats, capes, or wraps with faux-fur trim. Winter is also the perfect season for wearing "ice"--diamond or crystal jewelry and headpieces. *Flowers:* Silver and white arrangements can be especially elegant for winter. Look for silver-dollar eucalyptus, dusty miller, and white roses, lilies, crocus, or mums. Or, choose a more festive bouquet, mixing bright red roses, tulips, and ornamental berries with holly leaves or evergreen. *Food:* Whether you are serving appetizers or a full-course dinner, be sure to incorporate some of the flavors of the season such as pumpkin pie or warm cranberry crisp. Hot chocolate and spiced cider are also great options for warming up your guests. *Reception Location:* Choose a cozy inn with a fireplace, or look for beautiful historic buildings. Many of these places are decorated with Christmas lights, creating a very romantic setting. With a few special touches that evoke the season, winter weddings can be spectacular. If you are planning a winter wedding in Utah, consider The Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City. With the Christmas lights at Temple Square for a truly magical background, stunning Christmas trees in every room, and carolers singing on the mezzanine, it is the perfect location for a ceremony, wedding luncheon, or reception. Plus, catering, flowers, and linen rentals are available in house. Visit *weddingsAtTempleSquare.com* for more information.
