Trend Alert: The Winter Cover-Up

Ahh, the winter shrug is back. I got through almost a year with only a few winter “cover-up” posts (here and here), but I couldn’t resist just one more for the winter season, because there are always more winter furs (and in today’s case a pretty knitted number – sixth photo) to choose from!

While I tend to prefer furs over other jackets, caplets, shawls etc. I don’t mind the fur color and style choices. But (and there is always a but), that doesn’t mean any shrug works for any bride..The key is to pick the right color for your skin (let’s face it, without spray tan we’re all a bit pale come the winter solstice), choosing a color that will look good with your groom, maids and palette choices, and finally, just pick a style for no other reason than you simply adore it.

Today I wanted an assortment of eye candy and inspiration and while you may not love all of these, I promise there is a little something for everyone… So with a long sleeve look (second, forth, and eighth photos) or the traditional capelet (tenth photo), knit and very vintage (sixth photo), or a bit more trendy (fifth photo) you can do a lot with the shrug for any winter affair!

Pure Winter Wedding {Rustic} Bliss

Doing some winter dreaming today thanks to this gorgeous winter wedding {shoot} by Wren Photography. In her own words…

In a small town located in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula a group of professional wedding vendors joined together to create a gorgeous outdoor winter styled wedding to showcase how truly wonderful winter weddings can be! The private residence not only provided a stunning forest backdrop, but also an icy view of Lake Michigan. Knots & Kisses created a rustic, simple setting that showcased the true beauty of nature during the winter months. Their tablescapes adorned with moss, deer antlers, and candles added the perfect touch to the already gorgeous setting. The bride stepped out in an elegant off the shoulder gown with diamond snowflake jewelry from Wood Jewelers. Her romantic styled hair paired with the simplicity of her makeup made her stand out from the sparkling snow. Her Groom looking handsome, was dressed perfectly for a winter wedding with a suit from A Bride’s Choice. The couple enjoyed a day filled with laughter, hot cocoa, chai vanilla cupcakes, and so much more. The romantic bouquet, centerpieces, and boutonniere were artistically created by Forsberg Floral.

Happy Friday lovelies!!

The Wintry Plaids

Winter here on OTW seems to be winding down, but that only means we’ve got tons planned for Spring… just around the corner from here. So as my wintry thoughts, wanderings, and inspiration winds down… a little something special for a Monday. The ultimate winter pattern! And it’s pretty in plaid.

The Wedding Palette – Winter White

Well it’s not often we see white as the main color for any wedding palette but today we’re going white for a true winter celebration! From a snowy landscape for your wedding photos, to white fur on your chairs, “snow-capped” pinecones as an entry table centerpiece, a delicate white birdcage lace veil, or some delicious wintry white signature drinks, all of these touches – plus a few more below can add a little winter to your big (white) day.

A Winter Tablescape

It’s about time to get back to winter.. I keep reminding myself that it’s still January but with the crazy temperature swings over here in NYC who knows these days (tomorrow is supposed to hit almost 60?!?) So, the winter wedding tablescape? Well aside from all being pretty, there really isn’t one table setting style these days. Weddings have surpassed themselves in ever stylistic sense, so while there may be more of a “traditional winter table setting” your winter tablescape can still be everything pretty without being traditional. Today I picked a few that scream winter to me… Lots of silvers, greenery, sparkles and lace and even some chevron mixed into some traditional, others modern and lots of rustic ideas.
