Hello Bliss Brides and Readers!
It’s December! With December brings (for some) the first traces of snow, holiday cheer, and maybe a proposal or two?! We’re so excited for our final month in 2014, as we can’t wait to show off our winter-inspired wedding finds. With all the glitz, glamour, and bubbly of the holiday season we have rounded up some of our most festive wedding planning finds to date. Ready to dive in?
Spreading Holiday Cheer
As any wedding planner or bride who has done her research will know, the winter is the off-season in the world of weddings. However, don’t let the cold weather and snow deter you, deep discounts on vendors and venues offer greater flexibility in terms of dates and savings. For many families who might otherwise find it hard to gather, a holiday vacation ceremony might be a way to maximize the occasion. Did we mention that off-season weddings also have some of the most charming and cozy invitations? Here at Bliss we are swooning over this rustic and country winter digital wedding invitation suite. This wood and snow landscape wedding invitation features a wood grain plank background with two deers – a buck and doe – in the trees.
Sparkle and Shine
Ready to sparkle for your big day — literally? I can’t find a more subtle and elegant nod to a winter wedding than these snowflake hair pins. Each pin features sparkling rhinestones with accents of white glass pearls that are sure to garner compliments. You receive a pack of six in each set; perfect for sharing with your bridesmaids or inserted in a stunning bridal up-do.
Wedding Cake Bling
Help your winter wedding fairytale resonate throughout your entire reception with this clever “Snow in Love” cake topper. Want a more subtle design, the seller also offers decorative snowflakes too. If you’re opting for a series of smaller cakes with a focal point tiered cake, I love the concept of standalone snowflakes surrounding this focal point topper.
Spread the holiday cheer to all your guests through appropriately curated favors. First, the most sincerely comfort-food-inspiring beverage known to winter — hot chocolate. Words cannot express my sheer childlike joy at spying these hot chocolate custom packets. Inspire cozy, snow day inspired memories in your guests with these practical and delicious beverage favors.
Second, I’m gushing over everything evergreen-inspired lately. Seriously if you haven’t purchased this candle yet (remember how I’m a HUGE fan of candles?!) you need to right away for your home…. But I digress. Back to the latest evergreen I’m all excited about — these fragrant pine cone fire starter wedding favors. Just simply light the wick to start a fire in an outdoor fire pit or fireplace to add a touch of nature and light to your home and wedding reception. Even when not lit they give off that wonderful pine aroma. Not only is it the most darling concept, it will help your guests enjoy that classic holiday fragrance and warmth on a cold winter’s night.
So how will you be spending the holidays?
