Wedding Wednesday Season of Love | Some Favorites for a Winter Wedding

Since it is the season of love and one of my brothers recently got engaged, I decided that it was time for me to do another wedding Wednesday with a winter twist! Winter can be such a great time of year for a wedding. Many people get time off from work for the holidays and families are already planning on getting together. I have been to several beautiful winter weddings and I can’t wait for more in the future year. Here are some of my favorite winter wedding items.

Colors – This is very important to any wedding because it can create such a great visual for your wedding. It also often establishes the palette for your lives’ together. Here are some of my favorite winter selections.

Dress – Your wedding dress is such a statement piece – it really is one of the most important details of the wedding. Even if you choose not to wear a dress, it really sets off the tone for the rest of the event. Here are some of my favorites for wedding attire.
