I did a guest post over at forget me knot weddings blog a little while back. It is an inspiration board for a winter wedding that still wants to have the free-spirited feel that laid back summer weddings have. Summer weddings get all the attention sometimes, but I love winter weddings too. To me this board was perfect inspiration for a winter wedding that didn't feel too formal and uptight, or Christmassy. Rather it feels appropriately cozy for the snowy (in utah, at least) season while still being fun.
I love the idea of incorporating velvet into your or your bridesmaid's attire (or even a well tailored velvet suit for your groom?!) Wearing gold jewelry would be a perfect accent to glowing candles or christmas lights around your venue. Citrus is in season and looks great mixed with florals. Tones of yellowy gold and orange are perfect mixed with a sophisticated cream for flower arrangements at winter weddings. And last but not least, do you see the meringue mushrooms on that cake? I have made these myself and they are ever so time consuming, but I think they would be a perfect addition to a wintery wonderland wedding that doesn't have to say "Christmas".
