Winter is fast approaching and with it comes lower temperatures, holiday charm and in some areas even snow! Our Phoenix and Vegas locations don't see much snow 😉, however our store in Denver will definitely be enjoying snow flurries and maybe even a white Christmas.
As you know we love a good DIY project, so we've rounded up a few of our favorite DIY projects alongside our tips on how to design the perfect Winter Wedding.
Use white, silver and light blues to create a light, frosty feel that will represent winter vibes. You can incorporate these colors into the tablecloths, centerpieces, flowers, etc. If you are looking for a darker, richer color for accents you can use a deep burgundy. It looks so beautiful as a color on bridesmaid’s dresses and makes the bride really shine. This will help you keep the winter charm without having to use the traditional red and green Christmas colors.

Project #2 - Flower Crown via Brit.co
1. Wrap flower wire around your head to measure your crown size
2. Select winter inspired foliage and berries (live or faux)
3. Start with the greenery and wrap around the wire crown piece- securing with a smaller wire as you wrap around the crown piece.
4. Add berries and other accents at the end - securing with smaller wire
Integrating elements of nature such as pine cones, and pieces of fir/pine trees (Christmas trees) will also add to the winter theme. Let nature take a play into your winter wedding by using pieces of wood, berries and nature inspired colors.

Uplighting, portofino or bistro lights, spot lighting and twinkle lights are the many ways to use lighting to spruce up your celebration. There's nothing like a winter wedding without that twinkling feel. Hanging lights, twinkling lights and various sizes of candles are all great ways to brighten up your special day.
