Creating Warmth at Your Winter Wedding

A winter wedding can be memorable and cozy when attention is paid to the key details. The Charlotte Wedding Company has had the privilege of planning and staging a variety of weddings, social galas, birthday parties, family reunions and more during this time of year. The most important objective for the success of any wedding or event is to make your guests feel comfortable, regardless of the season. In winter months, when temperatures are lower, it takes a bit more effort to make everyone feel relaxed and snug. But, with a little bit of preparation, you can create a warm atmosphere that will keep everyone in a celebratory mood.

Here are a couple of cozy ideas from to get us started:

Warm Desserts
Instead of sticking to just cake, serve up hot apple crisp, homemade churros and chocolate sauce or sticky date pudding, recommends wedding planner Lauren Groeper of Chancey Charm Denver. “Add a hot cup of coffee or hot cocoa on the side and you’ve got a meal that warms your guests’ hands and hearts!” (Not to mention stomachs!)

Fire Pits & S’mores
Lounge areas set up around fires (either a fire pit or a fireplace) are the way to go, according to planner Skylar Caitlin of Chancey Charm Houston. “They’re a great place for guests to kick up their heels and relax if they aren’t into dancing, and they’re also the perfect place to show off your personality with fun throw pillows and comfy blankets. Big belly laughs over stories told around a cozy fire will be a memory your guests can carry forward from your wedding for years to come.” Add a s’mores station into the mix and mouths will melt.

Below are more options to make your winter wedding feel nice and snug. Maybe some of these ideas would be perfect for your special day.

Wood: Rustic wooden accents are an option for any wedding, but the piney feel they lend to a winter wedding can’t be matched. Consider wooden vase

Gloves: Keep your guests’ hands warm and toasty as they wave goodbye at your grand exit. Every time they pull the gloves on, they’ll remember the fun night at your reception is for your centerpieces or making your wedding signs from repurposed tree trunks.

Candles: Keep the flame of your wedding alive by giving out themed candles – maybe they’re made from pinecones or deliver a seasonal, homey scent. Continue reading at Temple Square
