Winter is such a splendid time of year. From sparkling snow and frost to festive holidays, this chilly season has a lot to offer. There is so much to enjoy when cold hits, such as sledding, warm comfortable jackets, hot cocoa, snuggling up inside with your loved ones, and so much more. It’s even the perfect time for your wedding!

Your Winter wedding is going to be a blast. When you start planning your wedding favors, there are a few ways that you can be creative and unique.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we want your day to be magical and for your guests to enjoy it. That’s why we have put together a few ways that you can be unique with the creation of your Winter wedding favors. If you are in search of ideas, be sure to keep reading to discover more:

  • Gingerbread cookies. If there is a sure-fire way to say Winter with food, it would be gingerbread. Full gingerbread houses fill homes throughout the Winter. The taste alone is something to look forward to all year long. Your guests are sure to enjoy a little pack of gingerbread cookies. You can make individual bags with clear or colored cellophane and tie them off with a ribbon, all complementing your wedding colors. You can also decorate your gingerbread cookies to represent you as the bride and groom, with the gown and tux and all the elegant details!
  • Hot cocoa mix. Whether you fill a clear ornament, mini bottles, or a mason jar, you can provide your guests with the sweet ingredients for a delicious drink. They will love a warm drink after a cold day. Adding cute notes on the bottles is another lovely way to say “thank you” for attending your big day. You can even add little marshmallows to top them off.
  • Pecan pie tarts. Surely you will have a wedding cake, as it wouldn’t be any fun to miss out on the cake smashing tradition. However, you can provide a little treat for them to take for later. You won’t be upstaging your grand wedding cake, but will be offering a tasty treat made with love. They will be able to snack on it while they travel home or later that night with their own significant other. Pecan pies are quite fitting for the Winter season.

Your Winter wedding will be an incredible event, and it’s only fitting that your wedding favors are equally great. Here at Rose Petal Events, we want to help you plan your magical day. If you are ready to begin planning your California wedding, be sure to contact us today.

The air has shifted from a breezy chill to downright cold. Snowflakes fall, creating a winter wonderland. And wedding bells are ringing for you and your soul mate. Winter is such a whimsical time to have a wedding. As snow falls, coating the ground with natural, sparkling, décor, it transforms the world around you (unless you live in California, where you can then only dream of the snow!).

If you and your partner are planning your big day for the Winter months, it should be enchanting! And luckily, there are a few ways you can go about planning your wedding to make it a huge hit.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we want your Winter wedding to be rewarding. That’s why we have put together a few top Winter wedding planning tips to help you have a successful big day, so be sure to continue reading to learn more:

  • Play with colors. Nowhere does it say in a wedding handbook that you can’t use whatever color palette you wish. Yes, there are colors that bring out the wintry season. However, by no means do you must use those in your own wedding. You can create any wedding scene your heart desires, even a tropical one. A tropical scene would be quite the surprise for your guests and can even give everyone a break from the chilly weather that awaits them outside. Utilizing bright colors such as lime green, mango orange, or even pineapple yellow, will set a warm atmosphere, showcasing your tropical theme. You do not have to limit yourself to any color palette, even one that specifically complements Winter weddings.
  • Dress your bridesmaids accordingly. Your wedding is likely being held indoors. The heat will be turned on, there will be no breeze. Dressing your bridesmaids in furs and long sleeves may not work well with the venue conditions. Your bridesmaids will appreciate a lighter attire to accommodate the room temperature. If you are having your wedding outdoors, of course you will want to dress your bridesmaids in warm attire. Although, an outdoor ceremony does not necessarily mean an outdoor reception. It’s crucial to ensure that your bridesmaids are dressed for comfort, no matter the situation.
  • A cozy and welcoming reception. With winter being the coldest season, it’s important that your seasonal wedding be warm and inviting. You can do more than just turn up the thermostat. You can create a cozy environment with your décor. Surely your wedding day will stretch into the evening, which will call for proper lighting. You can keep the Winter spirit alive with candles, and they will give your reception a warm glow. The cold has people wanting to cozy up in their warmest clothes and blankets. You can bring that snug feeling to your reception with lush, comfy textures, such as velvet.

Winter is such a beautiful time of the year, and an equally beautiful time for a wedding. Here at Rose Petal Events, we can help you plan your big day. From Winter wedding wonderlands to tropical getaways in the snow, we are here to help make your dream come true.
