Kiss bride and groom in winter landscape on wedding day

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.
