Stir-in chocolate spoons eliminate the risk of staining clothes while pouring --- and ensures that each guest can make their drink as chocolaty as they desire. 

5. Furs for everyone (in the wedding party)

6. Shawls for everyone (watching the ceremony)

If your ceremony is taking place somewhere without centrail heating (an old curch or barn, for example), consider providing shawls and hand warmers for attendees. 

7. S'more everything

Opt for the classic make-your-own or go for something a little more modern (hellooo s'more cupcakes!) -- either way this dessert is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. 

8. Candlelight Decor

Or hot mulled wine or hot pear juice -- anything you can add cloves or cinnamon to works!

Don't want to forgo an outdoor ceremony in a colder month? Outfit a tented reception with lots and lots of heat lamps.
