25 Winter Wedding Ideas

I’ve told you before how much I love weddings. Each and every moment, from the tiniest details to their symbolism and all they represent. Whenever I am on Etsy I somehow find myself drawn to all of the pretties and can only imagine what I might have done if I had even more time to have planned by own wedding. For now, until someone hires me to help orchestrate their big day, I will settle for pinning ideas on Pinterest and when possible, sharing ideas with you all here.

Wanting to put together a roundup of ideas for a winter wedding, I went and perused The Sweetest Occasion for inspiration to see what lovelies Cyd was sharing over there. While there I stumbled upon her Nutella hot chocolate with cinnamon whipped cream recipe, something that in my opinion would be the perfect warm beverage to serve your wedding guests during the cold winter months. The ideas that I am sharing with you today work not just for weddings but for showers and other soirées too. What I love about Etsy is there are so many wonderful products and oftentimes sellers are able to customize items to your liking. So take a moment to see the latest edition of wedding ideas. This time it’s all about winter weddings! And when you’re done don’t forget to visit Cyd’s blog for that Nutella hot chocolate recipe and for more winter inspiration!
