holidayweddingsMany couples choose winter as their favorite season to get married as it is a romantic time of year when the weather is cooler and air crisper. Fill your wedding day with special moments to always remember and create lasting memories. For winter weddings in 2014 look for an abundance of inspiration and new trends derived from traditional romantic influences to cultural heritage. The advantages of a winter wedding include greater availability of venues, wintry scenic backdrops, more guests able to attend and considerable savings to your budget. Make your wedding stand out with cool winter wedding trends. Read on for a look at some of the 2014 winter wedding trends.

Wedding Attire

Winter wedding dress trends have never seen more options for your special day than in 2014. Bridal separates are increasing in popularity as the new modern silhouette. Most notable are creations featuring crop tops with flowing skirts by bridal powerhouse designers such as Carolina Herrera and Mira Zwillinger. Fun accessories include mittens and muffs. White still reigns as the most popular color for wedding dresses but look to an icicle spectrum of colorful hues from pale pinks and vibrant purples to icy blues and deep navy. These colors are great for accenting wedding attire from your bridesmaid’s nail polish to the groomsmen ties.

Wedding Cakes

Delight your guests with favorite flavors of winter for your wedding cake. Chocolate takes the top spot comprising flavors such as dark chocolate, red velvet, devil’s food, white chocolate and chocolate mint. Add a touch of seasonal spice and include traditional faves such as cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, cardamom and cloves. Think outside the box with gingerbread and peppermint candy cane flavors. Take inspiration from falling snowflakes and turn your wedding cake into a snow-covered paradise composed of white cake with white buttercream icing and coconut. Have fun with winter wedding toppers such as a pair of polar bears or kissing penguins.

Seasonal Music

Pay tribute to the winter season at your wedding reception with music inspired by the coldest time of year. For classical music consider “Winter” by Vivaldi or “The Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” by Tchaikovsky or “Wizards of Winter” performed by the Tran-Siberian Orchestra. Warm up the dance floor with jazz greats such as “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” by Billie Holiday or “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan. Outside may be frigid but the dance floor will heat up with tunes such as “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande or “Made to Love” by John Legend.
