With all of the lovely winter snowy weather we are having here, we thought it is only appropriate to share some winter wedding and event inspiration. There is something about the cold weather that is so romantic and we have scoured the web to find some breathtaking photographs to share with you of all things winter.
If you are planning a winter wedding a big thing to take into consideration is your floral budget. Flowers can be very expensive this time of year so be prepared to pay a little more for your flowers than in the summer/spring months. Baby’s breath is a good option that looks great during any season and will provide a lot of bang for your buck.
We found the perfect winter wedding bouquet alternative to pricey flowers. These pine cone wedding bouquets add an elegant rustic touch. For all of you DIY-er brides this looks like the ideal project for you. We think these would make a great addition to your home décor or holiday party arrangements as well.
Head on over to your local craft center and pick up a large foam ball. Grab your hot glue gun, some branches, pinecones, and you are well on you way. Stick the branches in one end of the ball and place in a can, jar, or even a vase as long as you are careful not to knock it over. From there just start gluing your pinecones around the entire foam ball until it is fully covered. Layer and arrange different sizes until you achieve the look you would like.
You could make Christmas ornaments using this general idea and smaller balls; you could make a festive pinecone bunting as well. Add some pops of color by trickling some dried berries throughout your bouquets. Feeling glitzy and glamorous? Dip your pinecones in some gold or silver glitter, or any color that works with your theme for your wedding or event.
This would be a very cute, and unique save the date for a winter wedding. It really sets the tone. Ladies, if you aren’t engaged yet but your dream wedding is a winter one get out there and snap a picture before the snow melts.
