Baby's Breath is an excellent "filler" flower. It can decorate a lot of space at a low cost, and the blooms sort of resemble falling snow. Twinkle lights are another excellent way to simulate the effect of a sparkly winter wonderland. White glitter on decorative items gives off a pretty, snow-like look too.
Hot Drink Bar
It's chilly in the winter, so something hot to drink really hits the spot. Set up an adorable "bar" with your favorite hot drink. Hot chocolate bars can have a table filled with mix-ins like whipped cream, peppermint sticks, marshmallows, and syrups. An apple cider bar could have cinnamon sticks, dried apples, and red hot candies. If you love tea time, set your bar up with lemon slices, honey sticks, and a mixed selection of your favorite flavors of tea. If you prefer coffee, set out the fixings for your very own makeshift gourmet coffee bar.
Rustic weddings make use of many elements that you find in nature for decor, and winter has many that look absolutely beautiful. Sprigs of evergreen bring a nice, rich color to your centerpieces, plus they fill in a lot of space for little cost. Pine cones can be used in a variety of ways for wedding decorations. Scented ones bring a lovely aroma to your celebration, and they also make excellent place card holders. Firewood is another natural element that brings to mind cold temperatures and cozy fireplaces. Cut wood makes nice stands for the different parts of your centerpieces to rest on.
Candles at a wedding always bring about a romantic feel. Lots of candles will cast a warm glow all around the room. Plus, in a way, the candle flame is a nice, smaller alternative to a fireplace.
Unique Guest Book
Creative guest books are very popular. Instead of having your guests sign the pages in a book you may never open again, have them put their signature on something decorative that you will display, or something that you know will get plenty of use. Quilts are great for keeping you warm in the winter, and quilt squares with your guests' well-wishes on them make a sweet memento. If your ceremony will be near Christmas, guests can sign ornaments, or you can have a print of an evergreen tree that guests make "ornaments" on with their fingerprints.
If you will be sending favors home with your wedding guests, this season offers plenty of ideas to choose from. Scarves or throw blankets are nice, and during our research we came across the cutest saying to go with them: "To have & to hold in case you get cold!" Mittens could work with this theme too. Another idea is a mug from your hot drink bar. If you personalize each one, these can double as place cards on the tables. Go the extra mile and make up a to-go packet of hot chocolate or apple cider mix, or a selection of flavored teas. Holiday weddings are a wonderful time to give decorated ornaments as favors.
Those are just a few ideas to get your imagination flowing. Winter is a beautiful time to get married, and you can have a lot of fun with the decorative details. Our rustic wedding venue near Knoxville has an indoor wedding chapel for those days when it's a bit too chilly to get married outdoors. The wedding barn stays nice and warm for your reception, and if the temperatures aren't too low, right outside is some of the most beautiful scenery you've ever laid eyes on in any season. If you would like to see if Country Jewell is the right venue for your winter wedding, we'd love to show you around.
