Warm Up With These Cozy Wedding Ideas


Brrr. . . it's still so very cold out here! In honor (or maybe in spite of) the chilly weather, here are 10 of our favorite ways to bring a little warmth to any wedding day.

1. Wear a flannel shirt while you're getting ready

Bundle up in an oversized flannel while you're getting your makeup done. You can even borrow one from your soon-to-be husband! 

2. Coffee and donut hole favors

Send guests off to the after after party with a miniature jolt of caffeine and sugar. 

3. Uggs!

4. A Custom Hot Chocolate Bar

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)

Faux fur can add a warm, luxe touch to outdoor portraits. 

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

Instantly ups the coziness factor by at least seventy-five percent. 

9. Hot cider

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

10. A closed-in tent

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