Okay, guys… As much as we’d all like to deny that Christmas and Chanukah aren’t right around the corner, they are. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and then there are only a few short weeks before all of the gift giving, cookie eating, and family time. This is a great opportunity for those of you having a winter wedding to incorporate some of these sweet themes into your big day. 

Homemade Snow Globes

As soon as it gets colder out, we spend more time indoors; this leaves more time for crafting fun. Start collecting some old jars from antique stores, thrift stores, or head to a craft store. Buy small plastic animals and some faux snow and evergreen trees. These could make for a great take home gift for your guests; leave them on their plate for décor during the wedding and offer to have them take them as they leave.

Lighted Antlers

If you are going to incorporate a photo booth during your big day, choose something that is going to stand out and make your booth unique. We think that hanging antlers laced in Christmas lights are a great addition to any backdrop; to spruce up the pictures even more, choose a patterned wallpaper and maybe some gold frames to hang in varying sizes.

 Dreidel-Shaped Place Cards

For all of our friends who celebrate Chanukah, we adore the idea of using a paper dreidel as a place card. This is an inexpensive way to add a hint of your culture into a wedding day. Fill the dreidel box with some mixed metallic confetti or add some gold gilt for even more holiday flair.

These are just a few of our favorite holiday-inspired ideas. They can add the perfect hint of winter wonder to any day. This is a great way to get your guests talking about the upcoming holidays and it will make your day more memorable.
