If you’re planning a winter wedding, check out this centerpiece idea! I spotted these winter tree centerpieces over at Simply Mad Weddings and love their shimmery, glittery goodness. While holiday-themed or snow-themed weddings are popular, a shimmery winter wedding is a favorite of mine. (A winter wedding with sparkle just seems like a requirement, you know?) These glittery gold or silver winter trees can be used as centerpieces throughout your reception with decorations hung from the branches. Or, display on one central table and invite guests to grab snowflake or star-shaped ornaments as favors. What a fantastic idea! Read on to see more…

As a hidden something blue, consider a white scarf, bridal bolero, or jacket with a monogram (stitched in blue) on the inside. This hidden something blue will tie into the adage of something old, something new – but it’s your little secret.

We featured a Real Wedding where the bride wore a light pink silk scarf with her wedding gown, and we remember it like the post was yesterday. The bride, Debbie, wanted a simple, sweet, and elegant wedding day look, so her light pink scarf was the perfect thing to tie into her personal style. If you’re looking for an accessory to tie into your bridal ensemble, perhaps a silk scarf is just what you need for a fun pop of color! And, if you’re not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. I love scarves and wear them as often as possible. But before I became scarf-savvy, I had that feeling where I would see pretty scarves at the store and feel like I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off… you know?
That’s why today we are helping to nudge you a little into the right scarf-savvy direction with a few tips + tricks on how to wear a scarf. Wearing a scarf around your neck isn’t the only way to work it; you can wear it around your neck, as a headband, as a wrap, as a cuff bracelet, styled into your braided hairstyle, and more. You can even decorate your reception or ceremony site with scarves… your love nest, too! Read on for plenty of scarf-filled goodness compiled just for you after the jump!
How to Wear a Scarf with your Gown
The most popular way to wear a scarf is worn around one’s neck. If you’re braving a cold wintry wedding, consider a silk scarf for a pop of color or a pretty pattern in lieu of a heavy wrap. It won’t keep you as warm as wool, but it may just be the lightweight accessory piece for which you’ve been looking. Besides, if you get a chill I’m sure your groom will be happy to lend you his suit coat, right? ;)
Here is one example how to wear a scarf with your gown. This is Debbie, the bride we mentioned early in this post:

If you’re planning a winter wedding, you may be wondering how to decorate the entry doors or add decor to your reception site. To add an elegant touch to your ceremony or reception site, we recommend hanging a few winter wedding wreaths. These winter wedding wreaths by Wild Ridge Design caught our eye for its handcrafted and unique collection of winter wreaths that can be reused even after the wedding day. Hang one or two on your ceremony doors, place one at the entryway to your reception site or even display one above your cake table. Your wedding wreaths can then be reused after the wedding day in your love nest to become a treasured keepsake for years. Oh, and did we add that these are scented wreaths? It’s true! A few of the wreaths below have a custom sugar cookie or peppermint scent added. Yum!
