A Very Frozen Themed Wedding

Like everyone else in the entire world, I too fell in love with the movie Frozen. Since winter can be difficult to time to incorporate a fun theme theme I was inspired to create a Frozen themed wedding.

Ceremony – The easiest way to cut your budget but still wow your guests is to pick the correct venue for your theme. Pick a location that can help carry your theme. Or have your wedding outside, nothing more beautiful then fresh snow. But be sure to keep your guests comfort in mind as well by providing outdoor heaters and warning them to bring warm attire.

Reception Decor – Don’t try to fit the season.  Use it to your advantage. Have an “Ice Bar” for your guest to enjoy the outdoors along with adding to your frozen theme.  Include decorative ice sculptures, white chandeliers and blue, purple and teal hues to portray a cool atmosphere.

Shoes – Colored wedding shoes are all the rage right now.  Go will a cool icy color to give the appearance of ice slippers.

Flowers – White and blue flowers are a clear choice but they can also limit your color palette and variety.  Add some bright purples, fuchsia and deep blues to the mix to add to your wintery look with a little more color from Frozen.

Invitation-  If you are planning a themed wedding its important to incorporate your theme in your invitations. It will be your guests first glimpse into what to expect on your wedding day. So give them a sneak peek into your Frozen themed weddings with a subtle wintery invitation.  Or go full blast with Elsa and Ana included!

With this Ring… – If you want to not only carry out the frozen theme through your wedding but into your lives together as husband and wife. Consider one of these Disney inspired wedding rings brought to you by www.gemvara.com



Centerpieces –  Of all the wedding details the centerpieces are my favorite. They open so many possibilities and allow your creativity to really explode. Its also a great way to stand out.  Can’t decide on one look? Switch it up and have alternating arrangements throughout the ball room.  Just make sure the arrangements don’t clash with one another.

Cake – An all white cake is a classic. With this Frozen theme it fits right in. Want to really surprise your guests? Splurge for a cake made of ice…. with cupcake deserts to sooth your guests sweet tooth.





Drinks and Specialties – As more couples are wanting their wedding to really stand out its becoming more common to include specialty items for your guest. Such as a snow cone machine, decadent sorbet or specialty cocktails.

Dresses – There are no rules anymore. A bride doesn’t have to wear white, bridesmaids can wear white and matching isn’t required.

Photos – Don’t forget to take advantage of the natural additions to your theme, especially if you are getting married in the heart of winter.

Whirlwind Wedding

December is referred to as engagement season. Maybe you were one of the lucky ones to have gotten engaged over the holiday. If so, congratulations! Going even further, maybe you are one of those brides that really wants to have a summer or “gulp” spring wedding and don’t want to wait another year. Well then this infographic is for you.



Registry Trends

Wedding season is just around the corner and if you are a lucky spring/summer bride you probably have wedding registry on the brain. Not sure how you stack up to other couples who are in the same boat. Take a look at these registry stats and get ideas on what to register for.



Color Inpiration: Winter

Winter is such an under used time of year to get married. I do understand that its cold,especially if you live in Minnesota like I do. However there are so many benefits to getting married during this time of year.
Benefit 1. More choices for location. You don’t have the same stress as a summer or fall bride in having to book your wedding venues a year in advance. So if your having a short engagement consider a winter wedding.
Benefit 2. Its cheaper. Most venues this time of year have a reduced cost since its a slow time of year. And as long as you pick in season flowers it will save you a bundle.
Benefit 3. If you live in a location with a lot of snow travel can be hard for your guest but it will also be a time when most people are available and flights are cheaper making travel a much more manageable cost for your guests.

So if you do decide on a winter wedding here are a few fun color combos that are sure to spark some ideas.

High School graduation is only a couple months away and we all know what that means…. graduation parties! Graduation parties used to be very traditional.
