We love Winter Weddings! There are so many reasons Winter weddings rock! One of the biggest reasons is how much money you can save by getting married in the “off season” since most venues and vendors are willing to offer better deals. I also love all of the decor elements that are only appropriate for a Winter wedding! The natural color palette is beautiful and add a little sparkle to pull it all together! Here are some of our favorite Winter wedding ideas you are sure to love!
Faux fur vests or jackets are a great accessory for the bride and bridesmaids for a Winter wedding. Not only will it keep you warm, but it looks chic and sophisticated.
Use natural elements for your bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces. I love using sticks, pine cones and leaves.
Another great natural element is cotton! How awesome is this cotton bouquet and boutonniere?
Build a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and making s’mores during the cocktail hour or wedding! To keep guests warm give them blankets!
Offer them hot chocolate, hot tea or apple cider during the ceremony or reception! I love having cinnamon sticks, whipped cream, candy canes or chocolate shavings for guests to add to their drinks!

Karen and Eric were married at Glendalough Manor on February 24, 2012 with one hundred and seventy of their closest friends and family in attendance.
The bride wore a beautiful sweetheart neckline gown with ruching along the bodice and waistline with soft layers of ruffles along the bottom. She wore a simple strand of pearls around her neck and peal earrings to match.
The bridesmaids wore platinum satin full length gowns with a sweetheart neckline and a sparkling crystal brooch was worn at the waistline. To match the bride, the bridesmaids wore silver pearls and earrings.
The groom wore his military uniform for the ceremony. L-O-V-E this picture!
The ceremony was held in the Avondale ballroom and DGL Designs Florist did an amazing job at transforming the ballroom in to a romantic and elegant ceremony location. The bride chose a beautiful lavender aisle runner and DGL used two large candelabras with flowers on either side of the mantle with a matching spray arrangement in the center. The aisle was lined with tall stanchions with flowers on top.
The couple chose a jazz trio to play during the ceremony and gave the guests also enjoyed this music during the cocktail hour and dinner. After the cocktail hour guests entered the Wicklow ballroom and were amazed at it’s beauty. The tables were draped in lavender with platinum napkins. The bride used candelabras provided by Glendalough Manor and DGL Designs adorned the candelabras with an epergnette of matching flowers and a circlet of rose petals.
The couple danced their first dance to “At Last” by Etta James. Everyone at the reception loved this choice of song!
Glendalough Manor’s chef, Raymond Gregory, served a selection of Jerk Chicken, Seafood Creole and Beef Tenderloin. Yummy!
Cakes by Lameeka created this unbelievable cake! One of the prettiest cakes I have seen…I love the touch of sparkle!
The couple left the reception to sparklers!
