A Winter Wedding

A Winter Wedding

Happy Wednesday!  I'm linking up with Jordan at Love Always, Nancy J and Meredith at Belle in Boots for Wedding Wednesday with my idea for an elegant winter wedding.  For as long as I can remember, I always dreamed of a winter wedding, but when I met the man of my dreams and we started thinking about our schedules and the best time for a wedding, May fit perfectly.  I absolutely loved our spring wedding, but it has been fun to think of what I might have chosen for a winter wedding. :)

For the bride:
I loved this long sleeved lace Temperley London wedding gown and thought I might change the belt shown with the crystal belt above.  I think I would pair a soft sheer cathedral length veil, so the beautiful lace on the dress would show through.  The Kate Spade elegant heels would add the perfect touch and be gorgeous as the pointed toe peeped out from under the hem as the bride walked down the aisle.  For jewelry, my affinity for Downton Abbey shines through with the tiara similar to the one I've seen Lady Mary wear. I think these vintage looking chandelier earrings would complete the ensemble.

For the bridesmaids:
I'm loving this classic combination of the Carolina Herrera skirt and taffeta blouse.  I would love if the taffeta blouse were in a deep pewtery gray to offer some contrast with the gorgeous black skirt.  Again, Kate Spade comes through with these perfect black heels and a pearl cluster necklace provides the finish for this look.

The bride's bouquet is a cluster of creamy white roses and the bridesmaids' bouquets of deep red roses add a pop against their black taffeta ensemble.  For the ceremony and reception, I would scatter mercury glass votives all around to provide a romantic glow.  Tall arrangements of white flowering branches would further contribute to the winter wonderland feel.  I think white rose arrangements would also be gorgeous.

Thanks for stopping by for my winter wedding ideas!  What would you like to see at a winter wedding?
