Sparkling Winter Wedding

Winter wedding are so beautiful because you can use such wonderful holiday decorations.  This wedding from The Knot is a great example of this with some great ideas!  I love the wreath-motif programs that were used.  Twinkling branches were placed at each bar adding beautiful holiday flair.  They also had sparkling silver ornamental centerpieces that added to the holiday decor.  Another wonderful centerpiece were the votive candles hung from frosted silver branches.

Each bridesmaid carried a wintry white and green bouquet of cabbage roses, mini calla lilies, roses, hydrangeas, stars of Bethlehem, and hypericum berries all wrapped together with silver ribbon.

To honor Niall’s heritage, an old Irish toast was printed on the back of their wreath-motif programs. The toast read, “In the New Year, may your hand be stretched out in friendship, and never in want.”

“We wanted white lights everywhere,” says Megan. Twinkling branches, stationed at each bar, added holiday flair to wintry reception decor.

Sparkling miniature trees added to the reception’s silver ornament motif.

Votive candles hung from frosted silver branches, which stemmed from large floral base of garden roses, cabbage roses, hypericum berries, and clusters of round, silver ornaments.
