Recipe Card #3: Rustic Winter Wedding

Recipe for a Rustic Winter Wedding.

1 part nature. 1 part comfort. 1 part homemade. A touch of vintage.

The key to a rustic winter wedding is to create a cozy, natural atmosphere. Add in plenty of touches that give a homemade feel, along with lots of floral elements that bring the guests back to nature. You want to make your guests feel comfortable and relaxed.

  • The accessories. Embellish yourself with something vintage. Whether you choose a feathered hairpiece or antique-style necklace, a vintage accessory adds a definite rustic touch to your attire.

  • The details. Add tons of personal touches to the venue. From pine cone escort card holders to favors consisting of homemade jam in glass mason jars, these details will be sure to give off the feel you're going for.

  • The dessert. A great way to make your guests feel cozy is through the desserts. Serve winter favorites like hot cocoa with homemade marshmallows and ginger cookies. Check out our previous post on Whimsy and Spice to get more ideas.

  • The flowers. This is where you will be able to incorporate a lot of natural elements into the wedding. Choose whites, browns, and greens for your flowers, and add in pieces from nature, such as small branches, miniature pine cones, etc.
