It’s important to make sure you make your bridesmaids feel special on your wedding day! They have planned showers, a bachelorette party and have been there for moral support. Your bride tribe is constantly ensuring your day goes off without a hitch. You can say “thank you” a million times, but it’s still important to take time to think of thoughtful and personal gifts for your bridesmaids so they feel just as special as they have made you feel through the months of wedding planning.
There are huge details that go into planning a wedding; the venue, your theme or color scheme, the music, the flowers… the list goes on. With so much going into planning such an important life event, the groom tends to leave getting ready until the last minute. It’s true, he has a lot less to think about than a bride does, but it’s his day too, so we’ve come up with a short list to make preparing for the wedding a breeze for him.
Prepping your skin
Just like styling your hair, your skin and facial hair shouldn’t be an afterthought and shouldn’t be much of a change from what you normally do. Regularly washing and moisturizing your face is enough to get healthy skin and keep any spots at bay. However, if you have problem areas, feel free to see a dermatologist at least a month before the wedding, and they can give you professional guidance on how to handle your breakouts.
When it comes to styling your facial hair, stick with your usual style. You will feel most comfortable and confident when you feel most like yourself, and facial hair can be a defining characteristic. If you rock a beard, make sure it’s trimmed and styled neatly. There’s a ton of products on the market to help you achieve a perfectly groomed beard or mustache. If you want to go for a clean shaven look, ensure you’re using a new razor and quality shaving products. This way, you will get a soft face that’s free of nicks and bumps.

Winter is often considered an off season for weddings. From unpredictable snowfall to setting a date during the holiday season, the qualities of winter that can make for a great wedding are often overlooked. Just because it might be cold outside, doesn’t mean your wedding can’t be warm and romantic. I believe you can make your winter wedding warm, cozy and inviting for guests using these three simple tips.
Winter Color Schemes
Incorporating the right color into your wedding is a great way to make your guests feel warm and welcome. The colors of your wedding can be used in the small details of floral arrangements, or even in more grand and obvious ways, like the wedding party attire. Navy and Marsala, for example, is a great color combination for a winter wedding. Marsala is warm and elegant, and using this color as the foundation of your bridesmaid dresses will make your bridesmaids stand out against snowy scenery in wedding photos. Let these marsala-toned dresses from Weddington Way inspire you! If you’re looking for a stylish tuxedo rental for your groomsmen, I recommend the color navy. Navy is just as timeless and classic as a black tuxedo and compliments Marsala effortlessly. The Black Tux is a top pick among groomsmen for finding quality tux rentals online in a variety of colors.
Equip your guests with mugs and surprise them with fun and delicious cocktails to warm them up. Mulled wine, irish coffees and hot toddy’s are crowd favorites when it comes to keeping your wedding fun and guests engaged. I recommend a hot chocolate bar for guests to make their own beverages as they mingle together. Be creative with candy and nut toppings and offer different liquors for guests to give their drinks a sweet and spiked twist.
Choosing the right venue is crucial for a winter wedding. The way your decor is displayed and flows together really depends on the venue that you choose. You can choose to keep the theme of your wedding rustic and charming by holding your wedding in a ski lodge tucked within the mountains. Or if you would like to keep things more elegant and sophisticated, hold your wedding at a polished and dignified stone castle. Cozy fireplaces and beautifully arranged wedding candle decor will set an ambiance to the venue’s atmosphere. Provide small seating areas for guests to gather for intimate conversation or choose a venue with large windows to admire the snow-covered scenery outside.
Winter can be one of the most beautiful seasons to get married in. Choosing the right colors, reception options, and venue are a few of the ways you can make your wedding warm and inviting. Use the season’s beautiful and unique traits to make your special day one of a kind. What would you do to bring a feeling of warmth to your winter wedding?
