I have always thought winter wedding could be so pretty, even though they can be cold you can’t beat the sun glistening off the snow. The icicles and the way nature is in the cold is just breath taking! To embrace this beauty can be expensive since you can easily get carried away. So I want to share with you some great ideas I have found for having the beautiful winter wedding of your dreams…. on a budget!
Remember use light to your advantage it glistening off the snow. Heighten it with glitter in your decor and you have a win win!
12 Budget Friendly Winter Wedding Ideas
1.Have a Hot Chocolate Bar – instead of expensive alcohol do hot chocolate to warm everyone up instead!
2. Give Everything a Frost – Use free nature items like pinecones and give them a frost touch with some spray paint and pick up some glass jars you can normally find at the dollar store and BOOM! Hot centerpiece!
3. DIY Pinecone Fire Starters – You can grab a ton of pinecones for free outside and then make your own wedding favors by turning them into fire starts for your wedding guest to keep warm!
4. Bejeweled Pinecones – Add some bling to your wedding with some bejeweled pinecones that you can DIY!
