{ 15 Reasons YOU want a WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING }

WinterWedding

You know what’s wonderful about Wisconsin?! The seasons! Yeah sometimes winter may last a bit too long, BUT I still always look forward to the warm and fuzzy feeling I get with the first snow or the beauty of the pine trees all heavy with sparkly, white fluffy stuff, or even the beauty of a country landscape blanketed in the white! Now, it may get cold here sometimes, BUT, I think we forget an outdoor wedding in Wisconsin is still a possibility! With the beauty of gas heaters and fire places, warm beverages, you can create a romantic winter ceremony in the Northwoods no guest will be soon to forget! Here is fifteen ideas why it would be the “COOLEST” warm and fuzzy wedding EVER!

1. You can let mother-nature decorate for herself! How stinkin’ amazing is this landscape and ceremony backdrop?!

{ FALL in LOVE with the TREATS of FALL }

Visuelle

May I start by saying to my fellow northerners…happy fall wedding season friends! (And to my not-so-notherner readers…I don’t mean to leave you out!!! If it makes you feel any better…we promise to be very jealous of your warmer weather ways in a few short months!) The joy and appreciation for the change of seasons is what keeps “most” of us northerners here, instead of those nice warm Florida Keys! Once you’ve grown up here, you can’t help but love that first crisp fall day, the first snow, the first breezes of spring, AND SUMMER…ohhhh summer…we practically hold out breath to make it last longer! The moral of the story is there are joys and treasures we adore about each time of year; and the comforts of those seasons are special to add into the details of your love day. Fall harvest time gets us enjoying an array of treats and they’re great way to incorporate the season into your day! Here’s a few idears my FALL loving FRIENDS! :)

 

Okay…this cake or cupcake flavor just sounds DELICIOUS! Pumpkin spice with caramel cream cheese frosting…Oh…MY…YUM!

8eefe5643719a02edc644467820818ce

 

 

Caramel apples…AND PRETTY caramel apples at that! What guest wouldn’t love one of these as a favor!

ba41b47e7394830834fc3c934a29b9c4 53822184c6eafcb599db70670bb39bbb

 

 

 

Okay…so for some reason I always incorporate milk and cookies as a fall thing…school starting-kinda treat! I think this suits probably any season…but how delighted as a guest would you be to see these little treats coming around for a late night treat!

 

3555fba4df4ad07121085b0690ce4be3

 

 

The cuteness of a mini pie is unbearable! How adorbs and delicious do these things look!

e64c35e4ced894fdc0d5266682bf7e7d

 

Bite size pumpkin pies…I may be in heaven!

b4c4b5988df05c0967da14ed305964ec

 

 

Have you seen these things?! They call them PIE POPS…I’ve decided I HEART PIE POPS before even taste testing! Cuteness on a stick!

0877e67a9cdccad57b24a42778a2924c

 

 

Caramel corn = HAPPINESS

9852acf6ac83a43697086baf7ab309e0

259f9f0e422089b0462845341894a65b

 

 

Okay and finally, one of my FAVORITE cold weather party ideas!  A HOT COCOA BAR! UMMMM…YES PLEASE! And let’s not be bias…how bout a HOT BAR?! Cocoa, coffee, and cider with all the fixings and additives (chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint, caramel, marshmallows, maybe a little something-something for the guests over 21) to warm those sweet little guests of yours up in a hot minute!
