2. Winter/Christmas Inspired Desserts

There is a reason why the holidays are the yummiest of seasons – all the delicious treats! Regardless if you you go big or small the desserts at your wedding can make an adorable impact.  Like having mini-gingerbread houses at the table, scrumption pies + cookies, or a simple “snow” frosted wedding cake.

6. Faux Snow Fun

So if you live in a place like sunny SoCal, finding real snow is not always an easy task.  So, add some faux snow to create the magic.  Your pictures will be amazing and it adds a whole extra layer of fun to your wedding day.

9. Tabletop Designs

When it comes to decorating the tabletops for your winter-themed wedding there are some elements that just freaking work: plaid linens, dreamy red + green details, pine needles + leaves, and cranberry filled vases.  You can add just one or two of these elements or all of them, no matter what you choose it will be stunning!
