A Wedding on a Snowy Winter Night

Imagine a cold winters night, while it’s gently snowing outside. That serene feeling of calmness, layered with the beauty of the dark night and fresh white snow. Towering branchy white trees above, and dimly light lamp posts nearby to mark your path. Twinkling stars above, and candle accents here and there. What you are envisioning is my take on a wedding on a snowy winter night. As you are imagining this, did your fantasy look develop into something with dark, deep blues and crisp whites? Mine certainly did.

The addition of lamp post accents in the escort cards, and in the area decor take this winter wedding to a more unique, one of a kind look. Having a lamp post is not the most traditional of decor choices, but certainly lends itself to this unique theme, and adds to the ambiance of the decor, especially if the event is held in a specialty tent with taller ceiling options. Here’s what I had in mind for this nighttime winter wedding:

Rustic Goth Wedding by Candlelight – Halloween Wedding Ideas

There is something so intriguing about themed weddings. The sky is the limit of opportunity when it comes to themed wedding concepts. I really believe a well done, alternative themed wedding, can truely set the tone for a marriage. I say this for this reason: for the couple that really knows themselves and each other, and are in tune enough to break away from the standard white-dress mold and do something bold, develop an extra layer of strength and bonding during the process. As stressful as it is to plan a “traditional” wedding, creating a perfectly themed wedding can be exponentially harder. If you can get through that, you are off to a good start.

And for the couple that is up for the challenge, I present to you this rustic goth wedding by candlelight. I see this as an ideal theme for a wedding around Halloween, or for any evening or dusk timed wedding in a rural area year round. It’s all about playing up the dark of the night!

Magical Midsummer’s Night Wedding Ideas

“Fairy dust is like love, it creates magic whenever you give it away.” I found that quote on Pinterest the other day, as I was browsing some stunning centerpieces. It inspired me to create a magical midsummer’s night wedding idea board to share with you this week. There are oh so many takes on a midsummer’s night wedding out there, filled with over grown foliage and floral blooms. I’m sure you’ve seen them all if you spend more than 5 minutes a week on Pinterest. To add my interpretation of this popular wedding theme, I opted for an ever so slightly more modern take. Instead of having blooming flowers and green vines everywhere, I decided to incorporate more aged and woven vines. You’ll see in a number of the inspirational images there are rich dark vines, often shown woven into unique shapes. And no garden party is complete without an abundance of fairy lights! Combined, I think these elements make for a spectacular evening wedding and reception.

Here’s what I had in mind:
