Winter Wedding Tips
Make sure to have a signature drink or food item that relates to the holiday feel, it will give your wedding a little extra holiday cheer!
- Egg Nog Martinis
- Cranberry Spritzers
- Pomegranate Splashed Champagne
- Wreath Shaped Spinach Pastries
- Holiday Cookie & Cocoa Bar
You could also consider having mini stockings stuffed with mints or other goodies as your wedding favors!
Give major heads up to your guests
A lot of people plan trips or even just have other family plans around the holidays so beware of the possible low amount of RSVP’s
Everything might be a little pricier around this time of year, so remember to take this into consideration when booking your venue, and solidifying hotel blocks
This is also vacation season, meaning hotels, airfare, etc. Will be at an all-time high.
Holiday weddings should be black tie events
Make it more formal, gives it a special part of your day and gives everyone to dress up for a big fun event!
If you’re planning a NYE Wedding, be sure to host until at least 12:30am
This way you can celebrate the new year with not only a new spouse but all your family and friends as well.
Make your décor celebrate the holiday but also you
Including sparklers, some fake snow, and even some holiday colors!

Day of Emergency Kit
Double stick fashion tape
You never want a wardrobe malfunction, so use this tape to prevent that stay bra strap or securing your wedding dress
Get a kit that has mini scissors, thread, and needles. This will allow to you make quick fixes, cut off loose threads and snip off tags
Buying a kit with assorted sized because you never know when you will need one
Stain remover pen
This is the end all be all!! You never know what is going to happen!
Got those new shoes just for the wedding? Prevent them with anti-blister balm
Not having to lug around a big heavy steamer will save you some time and energy
Using a lint roller will get rid of all that pesky hair that falls on you while you are getting ready!
Just some touch ups to keep your hair nice and tidy
Just in case you have cramps or just a migraine your wedding day should not be stressful
Getting the oil off your face before you walk down the aisle to make those pictures look perfect!
You will probably shed a few happy tears so make sure to have some tissues handy!
Just to make sure to stay refreshed and not sweating while walking down the aisle!
For touch ups, and have pretty lips for that big I DO kiss
You won’t be eating a lot because of nerves, and then you’ll be starving! So pack a snack!!!
Calm your nerves and knock one back!
Just in case anything falls out or needs to be put back in place.
Have fresh minty breath when going in for the newlywed kiss!
I know, I know, BUT you’ll be glad you have it with you if your nerves decide to mess with your tummy pre-vows.
