What gives everyone the “winter wedding feel”? It’s definitely the perfect hue. Let’s go for white and silver.
For your tables, have shiny table runners. And of course, your table napkins shouldn’t be just plain white. Get a table napkin with dainty ribbon for a cute look. Plus, it would be nice to put on your tables an impressive silver platter.

If you are to embark on a quest for the perfect wedding dress, you might as well do so as early as possible! Shopping for your wedding dress can take weeks to months, and that doesn’t include the days that dressmakers spend creating it. With this, it is best to say that early shopping = wise shopping.
Look for labels that specialize in plus size wedding gowns and dresses for curvy women.
IGIGI Women’s Plus Size White Diamonds Wedding Gown
Vivien from Veromia, an award-winning designer of bridal gowns based in the UK, says you should look for your wedding dress under brands that make them for curvy women.
Kiyonna Aurora Lace Wedding Dress
“It is best to look through bridal magazines and on bridal websites and find labels that cater for the fuller figure,” she shared. “Bridal gowns sampled in size 12 and 14 were designed for a size 12 figure, so you need to look for a label that specifically designs for a size 18 plus as this is a dress that has been designed especially with the curvier bride in mind.”

Kiyonna Forever Yours Wedding Dress
As usual, it’s all about flaunting what you got! Look for gowns that highlight your assets, instead of placing problem areas in the spotlight.
David’s Bridal Strapless A Line Beaded Lace Tulle Wedding Dress Style
Vivien shares, “Most dresses, if designed for the curvier bride will look good on you, but if you are quite short go for an A-line dress as this will make you appear taller. If you are tall, then a fishtail gown will suit you especially if you have a flat tummy. If you have nice shoulders go for a dress that shows this off. Full A-line gowns with a cross-over waist detail will be very flattering for every bride.”
Wear the right undergarments while fitting plus size wedding dresses.
Kiyonna Amour Lace Wedding Gown
Wearing the right undergarments on your wedding day is probably one of the most important things you should do. And it’s good practice to wear them while shopping for your wedding dress. Otherwise, how will you know how they’ll do with your plus size wedding gown?
Most wedding dresses for curvy women already come with internal corsetry and if the label or designer is that good, you should get away with it by wearing pretty panties alone. If not, you might want to wear a good corset to help slim down your silhouette.

David’s Bridal Cap Sleeved Satin Side-Draped A-Line Wedding Dress Style
Last but not the least, enjoy your wedding dress shopping by bringing your maid of honor, bridesmaids or even your mom! More than hearing from them, having good company during an otherwise stressful search for the perfect plus size wedding dress will make the experience a memorable one.

Weddings are heading to an exciting new direction this 2015!
Clue: not fancy but highly-detailed. Have you pictured it out yet? Here are the top 5 wedding trends in 2015.
Country/ Western/ Boho Chic Theme
2015 will be the year for one-of-a-kind weddings which may cause quite a stir among the parents. We’ve got to say, country wedding themes, western wedding themes and boho chic wedding themes are quite a challenge to pull off.
Sourcing decors and other materials like invitations, tags and even planning the menu, can be harder than usual. But the great thing is that these kinds of weddings will most likely leave a mark on guests, as they’re not only unique but are also highly-detailed.
Creative Food & Drinks
What type of wedding serves mini burgers and leave guests to fend drinks for themselves? 2015 weddings, of course! The presentation of food and drinks has gone a long way from the usual set-up.
Nowadays, anything from eating while standing to gathering on a huge table for a boodle feast clicks!
Playful Wedding Dresses
Food and drinks are not the only ones veering away from the traditional fanciness of weddings. This year, more and more brides are expected to be walking down the aisle – or the farm – wearing boots and dresses we’d never thought would pass up as a bridal outfit.
Looking for inspiration? Check out what Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and other trend-setters if you’re doing country/ western/ boho chic as a wedding theme.
Forget hotels and boring function rooms. Say “I do” with horses on the background… exchange marital vows in a cave… the possibilities are endless! It’ll be trick though, requiring superb logistics, but we’re sure it’ll all be worth it!
All Things Marsala
Of course, your wedding should make use of marsala-colored items and we can’t help but suggest having flowers in rich wine color.
Are you excited for these fresh 2015 wedding trends? Share your thoughts!
The cold season is definitely settling in and if you’ve chosen this season to exchange marital vows, you’ll find that your special day calls for a few more extras than usual. Be it boots instead of heels or s’mores instead of cakes, here are winter wedding ideas we know you’ll love.
Winter Wedding Dress & Attire
Don’t try to bare the cold with nothing but lace covering you up on your wedding day. The solution? A coat, a jacket, a shawl – anything to keep you warm yet still fashionably chic.
And well, unless you’re planning on getting carried from the bridal car to the church or to the reception venue, you might want to skip on the heels. If you do, go for chunky heels which will give you more stability when walking on an icy surface or trudging on snow.
Winter Wedding Décor & Accent
Use the cold weather to your advantage on your special day! Set the mood while adding much needed warmth with candles scattered everywhere on your wedding reception.
Make use of winter elements too like pine cones. Check them out below.
Winter Wedding Food & Drinks
Even the most formal wedding can use a little warming up and your winter celebration is no exception! Serve comfort food and go the extra mile by putting together a warm-me-up bar your guests will be thankful for.
A hot toddy bar will be a welcome treat for anyone in your guest list. Classic hot toddy, Apple Cider hot toddy, Pumpkin hot toddy, Whisky hot toddy or Cinnamon hot toddy, SheKnows got you covered. See the recipes here.
S’mores will also be a huge hit! Depending on your set-up, you can serve s’mores cakes and cupcakes or you can put up a s’mores bar on your wedding reception.
Winter Wedding Giveaways
Give your guests the perfect token to remember your wintery cold wedding by handing out giveaways related to the season.
An especially put-together hot cocoa mix will not only warm up guests in the near future, but will also remind them of your sweet winter union.
Personalized matches are also great winter wedding favors and we absolutely love the white ones!
And for something more crafty, how about snow cone bath salts? They’re useful and they’re snowy… in a way.
