Bold Lips

Whether in shades of deep burgundy or classic red, bold lipstick goes so well with a winter wedding bridal look. Paired with a neutral eye and lots of lashes, pick a bold lipstick that enhances your skin's glow.

Hot Cocoa

Do your guests need to warm up? Offer a hot cocoa bar, as well as some "grown-up" versions with Grand Marnier, Kahlua, or Bailey's. And of course, don't forget the whipped cream and mini marshmallows.

Sparkling Cocktails

But if you do prefer your cocktails on the sparkling and chilled side, opt for those with hints of dark berries and wintry garnish like this stunner.

By Candlelight

Seasonal Style

Thanks to greenhouses, you can now get nearly any flower you want, no matter the season. But for a charming winter event, go with the season's matural beauty. Make tablescapes out of evergreen boughs, berries, and pine cones.

Outdoor Portraits

Make sure that you take advantage of the season! Pose in the snow all cuddled up with your new spouse, and even encourage a little snowball fight between wedding party members.

Glam Backdrops

Instead of a large floral backdrop that you might see at a summer wedding, embrace the season with a statement-making fireplace mantel. Decorate it in your palette and theme and use it as the setting for your portraits.

Staying Cozy

Want to use more of your venue? Place heat lamps on patios or make a fire for people to stand around. As long as it's not too chilly, these little things will help your guests stay toasty throughout the night.
