Inspiration Tuesday - Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

This time of year is a wonderful time to use the decorations that are already easily available. Isn’t it lovely the first time it snows for the season, everyone loves the snow, so why not celebrate your wedding by embracing the snow? First, you will need to hire a great coordinator (CCP, of course) to clean up the wonderful mess, BUT how cool would it be to have a winter wonderland occasion with snow falling from the ceiling! This is where my inspiration begins. Everything would be in white from the linens to lamour white chair covers with a matching white dance floor. Twinkle lights and white fig branches create a grand entrance outside your venue as the guests enter. During the cocktail hour, the servers (or your guests) could dress the part by wearing all white as you have carolers singing outside! White chocolate is served with warm drinks as your friends and family come inside to get warm (don’t forget the valet parking). As the dinner chimes ring, the snow could begin to fall to notify the guests it’s time to start the dinner and dancing. Don’t forget the surprise when your favorite singers (or IPOD)come out to sing the duet “Baby Its Cold Outside” and you and your new husband have your first dance to the freshly fallen snow. The centerpieces could be this minty holiday season centerpiece filled with crystal snow. Sugar can be used on the buffet to create a winter look. The white, cool drinks could be poured out of an ice louge while the guests dance the night away. Okay, who’s ready to have some fun in the snow?! Check out this live video stream of a snowfall inside a Marriott Ballroom, how cool!

I think this sounds like such a neat idea! Wouldn't it also add a certain something if, perhaps, custom lighting was installed featuring snowflakes with the bride and groom's monograms? I saw this at a wedding I went to recently!

Thanks for the inspiration!
