Are you planning a winter theme wedding?
Many Couples planning winter theme weddings have requested
information and A-wedding Day is up fo the challenge.
Most need creative ideas.
So, without much ado, lets see how to plan a dream winter wedding.
When you close your eyes and picture winter, you associate it with
sparkling, crisp snow that is so white it sometimes looks bluish.
I bet that even if you live in an area that does not experience
winter this word conjures the snow scene in your mind.
WINTER WEDDING IDEAS
ATTIRE for BRIDE GROOM and WEDDING PARTY
Winter is best represented by white, silver, platinum and light blue.
These are the perfect color choice for a winter theme wedding.
You can incorporate these colors in the bride, groom and wedding
attendants attire. White for the bride and groom, light blue and /
silver for the attendants. However, you have other options too.
You may have the bridesmaids dresses made of fabric with snow
flakes or stars motif that may even accented with white fur like
Since you are planning gifts for your bridesmaids and flower girls,
present them with Swarovski crystal on silver with or without pearls,
or pearl jewelry on silver such as that offered in our discount mall.
Tiaras should also be studded with swarovski crystals and or pearls
on silver. The Swarovski jewelry glitsens like snow in the sun while
pearls offer the prism. What a wonderful yet inexpensive way to
have your bridal party match the winter theme of your wedding.

stationery items and invitations motifs available to choose from,
including do it yourself - print your own stationery.
