PLANNING TIPS FOR A WINTER WEDDING IN NEW JERSEY
A winter wedding in New Jersey? Sounds like my kind of celebration. Perhaps it’s the cool air, or the post holiday buzz that give weddings that extra special glow. So if you’re planning a winter wedding, keep these warm planning tips in mind.
Bold Color Palette
Feel free to use bold colors during your winter wedding. The combination of gold, burgundy and black makes for a bold yet elegant color palette. Toss in some greenery and you’ll have a beautiful scene that not your typical winter wonderland cliché.
Seasonal Food Menu
During the cocktail hour, serve mulled wine with bite-sized versions of your favorite winter comfort food. Think upscale truffled mac & cheese bites or soup shooters. Get creative with your menu selection by featuring a warm roast along with seasonal foods, such as winter squash or soy glazed brussel sprouts. And for those of you who love pasta, winter weddings are a great opportunity to serve a pasta course. For dessert you can have an open hot chocolate bar.
Day-of Photography Schedule
Winter sunsets tend to occur earlier in the day, so as you’re planning your photography schedule keep this important detail in mind. Depending on what time your ceremony will take place, you may want to plan a few outdoor shots before the sun sets and while there is still plenty of time.
Wedding Gifts and Favors
Provide your guests with winter-friendly gifts they can use during the season. Monogrammed throws, shawls, scented candles, and even monogrammed warm socks are fun wedding gifts that your guests will actually use.
