Helping to plan Winter Weddings.
Winter Weddings Holiday Planning Theme Ideas. When snow is on the ground it is perfect for a Winterland wedding theme.

Keep it simple. Integrated the winter theme into the elements of your wedding. From the invitations to your wedding cake.

Event designer Preston Bailey suggests when creating a theme use only one or two colors to make it more dramatic.

Event planner Elizabeth Allen suggests to choose deep-red card stock for invitations with pearlized ink. Wrap the invites in snowflake pattern vellum. Use silver snowflake seals to close. Add the same vellum to line envelopes.

For décor top the tables with deep red taffeta cloths. Drape with an overlay of burgundy velvet with deep red satin piping.

For menus include warm popovers with herb butter on each table.

For dessert serve a decadent wedding cake. Black forest torte decorated with dark-chocolate icing. Topped with chocolate shavings and sugared fruit.

For favors fill a large monogrammed ceramic mug with a bag of gourmet hot chocolate. Wrap in a box with deep red satin ribbon. Source: The Modern Bride Survival Guide by Antonia van der Meer. Visit
