Today I'd love for you to feel the warmth that can be had with a winter wedding and the beauty to behold at a wedding without floral.
DON'T GET ME WRONG
I lurv flowers, but there is a reason that none grow in the Minnesota winter season, and it’s not just because it’s colder than ice out. It’s to leave room for the opportunity to make arrangements and centerpieces, and boutonnières that don’t include flowers.
In all honesty, Laura did have a floral bouquet, and the bridesmaids’ were a last minute addition, but don't let that take away from the lovely use of nature's other growing things and organic matters and a whole hell of a lot of sequins.
6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM LAURA + MIKE:
- Lanterns can be terribly romantic if you dim the lights and light the candles
- Use fake flowers where you can’t tell the difference
- Wood slices are HEAVEY. Have a way to pack them in, and pack them out.
- Tiny twinkle lights make a big impact on the romance meter.
- If you're going to make fishing lure boutonnieres, make a few extras just in case, and for nothing else but to take pictures with
- February doesn't have to be freezing in Minnesota, try getting married in winter, you might just like it.
