Romantic Winter Wedding Inspiration Perfect for Intimate Ceremonies


11 cozy 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.

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