Plan Your Winter Wedding in Westchester With These Trends

Discover 11 wedding trends brides and grooms should embrace this season for an elegant, festive celebration no one will ever forget.

Winter weddings can be unpredictable — even in the best of years, who knows when a Nor’easter will roll into town? — but off-season pricing makes them an appealing option in one of the country’s most expensive wedding markets. Of course, for cold-weather-loving couples, this time of year is more than just savings. Embracing the season brings tons of cozy, romantic touches and snowflake-inspired sparkle.

Ready to plan your perfect winter wedding in Westchester? These 11 inspiring trends will get you started.

1. Set the tone for a cold-weather celebration with snowflake details on your invitation suite.

4. Don’t be afraid to throw on a pair of weather-appropriate shoes. A cozy fur stole adds a touch of vintage glamour.

5. Or bundle up with a soft-but-structured coat, knit scarf, and white gloves.

6. Add some texture to a bridal bouquet by incorporating an intentionally messy mix of winter branches and berries.

9. Instead of accenting your cake with out-of-season blooms, stick with winter-appropriate pinecones. They add a natural, rustic touch that leans into the season.
