Merry Christmas!

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

Marry Christmas! ~ Winter Groom Accessories

I hope you have enjoyed looking into winter wedding elements with us. If you have missed it, we have already checked out winter save the date ideas, winter wedding dresses and winter bridal accessories. Continuing the exploration winter wedding elements, we are checking out winter groom accessories. Accessories are not limited to the brides in any season. For the winter, there are many ways for grooms to add seasonal flair to their outfits as well. As it works for brides, groom accessories add not only seasonal detail, but a splash of complementing or contrasting color and hopefully an extra dash of sophistication. From wool coats to wreath boutonnieres, men are not confined to a black suit and tie {although a black tuxedo and top hot are always a viable option}.

Marry Christmas! ~ Winter Bridal Accessories

If you have missed our previous installments of winter wedding elements, check out our posts on winter save the date ideas and winter wedding dresses. Along with a stunning wedding dress, winter brides have the advantage of accessorizing in ways that no other season allows. Hats, boots, mittens, scarves, stockings, stoles, shawls, bows, foliage and more add lovely detail for a bride. For a more rustic wedding, moccasins, a scarf and a spring barrett are darling while a stole and/or cape coat along mittens are fitting for an elegant affair. Either way, winter bridal accessories provide a stunning palette of colors to complement the traditional {and seasonal} white. They can add to the winter wedding white or provide a contrast against against a white dress and white background.


Creativity and style will bring a lovely result for any blushing bride. If you have any other ideas, let us know below! Be sure to come back for our other installments of making a winter wedding!

Marry Christmas! ~ Winter Wedding Dresses

Hopefully you enjoyed our winter save the date ideas {and our other save the date photo and card ideas as well}. Now, we move onto one of the biggest elements of any wedding: the wedding dress. Warm weather weddings allow the bride to show more skin in strapless, backless and/or short wedding dresses – something which can be difficult for brides to attempt in the winter. However, there are many gorgeous styles full of ornate detail to match the sparkle of the snow and the spirit of the season for winter brides can take full advantage; something which warm weather brides do not have. Vintage, modest and ornate are the best ways to describe winter wedding dresses.


If you know of any other lovely winter wedding dresses, let us know about them below. Be sure to come back as we go over a different element of the winter wedding / Christmas wedding!

Marry Christmas! ~ Winter Save the Date Ideas

Winter is an ideal time for nuptials. Weddings are more uncommon during the winter season than in warmer months; the entire holiday season is a source of thematic inspiration; accessory options are plenty and the snow itself agrees with the white wedding motif. If you are fortunate enough to be wed during the Christmas season of just the winter, be sure to take advantage of the distinctive nature of the season and make the most of the winter wonderland around you. To help you do just that, I have gathered some interesting and definitive seasonal elements to help make the day your marry merry and bright. I will be going over a different element each day beginning today with the save the date. Come back for winter wedding gowns, bridal accessories, groom accessories, bridesmaids accessories, bouquets, ceremony designs, reception decor, centerpieces, place settings, seating assignments, drinks, must have photographs new years twists and other flair. So, be sure to come back each day to check out all of the winter wedding elements!

First comes first – the save the date! There are many interesting ways to do save the dates, but Christmas and winter weddings have their own unique options. Some winter save the date ideas involve jingle bells, Christmas ornaments, hot cocoa, candy canes or just plain old snow – the possibilities are endless.


 I was sad that I could not find anything incorporating a wreath, Christmas tree or sled, but the possibilities are endless. Just be creative and you will get an original save the date. If you have any other ideas, let us know below!
