Winter weddings are magical. They are a burst of sunshine during the colder weather and allow the merry holiday celebrations to continue. Here are some of the best reasons to celebrate a union during “the most wonderful time of the year.”
The Bride: Winter weddings bring cooler temperatures and the chance to accessorize a wedding dress. An intricate lace long sleeve, with a high neckline is a popular look for the icy weather. A luxurious shawl is also the perfect throw-over for an outside photo-op. And you can’t forget the bridal veil. Look how adorable our Landy LadyBug Buddy looks with the veil draped over her shoulders!
The Groom: The groom always has it easy. A classic bowtie is a traditional look, but for a more casual wedding our Mason Moose Buddy looks sharp in a standard necktie. Check out Mister Buddy Bear looking dashing in his bowtie.
Flowers: The flower arrangements, particularly the bouquet, have become a focal point of a wedding. A winter setting allows for more artistic leeway as the bride will carry an “in season” arrangement. This means the guest will be treated to more deep reds, burgundys, purples and greens.
The Location: Nothing is more beautiful than a blushing bride and her handsome groom posing against a winter backdrop. With fresh snow on the ground, dusting the bare trees the day will be picture perfect… literally. We love this Central Park winter wedding location.
The Gifts: A great way to commemorate the winter wedding is by embroidering a special message or date on one of our Easy As Easy as 1-2-3 Embroider Buddy® pillows. It’s a timeless gift the happy couple can add to their home.
How about one of these special messages?
“Loved you yesterday, love you still, always have, always will”
“Love doesn’t make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
“There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage”- Martin Luther
Another idea: give a customized Embroider Buddy® to each of the bridesmaids, flower girl or ring bearer as a thank you gift. They can cherish it forever and it would also add a unique touch to the wedding photos.
Winter weddings are not as common as they should be, but that is what makes them all the more special! And a unique wedding deserves a unique gift. Embroidering a customizable gift for the future husband and wife is sure to be a gift they will cherish forever.
