A ski lodge theme

Bring this into your wedding theme and go heavy on the accessories such as white blankets. You can even add in something special for your guests, white velvet gloves with your guest’s names embroidered in the cuff in ivory or silver for the ladies, make for wonderful, thoughtful gifts. For the men, white scarves with their name embroidered on the ends of the scarf make for fantastic, warming gifts.
Scandinavian winter landscapes are some of the most gorgeous in the world. Snow-capped peaks with snow falling all around them, with the room lit with the soft glow of lanterns, makes for an amazing cozy feeling. Bring this theme into your wedding ceremony and reception by using rich, white tablecloths and use a giant snow globe as the centrepiece of your table. Encourage your guests to shake the globe under the low lamp light from your glass vase candles produces a wonderful winter theme that will keep everyone at the table mesmerised. Cut some branches from a tree and paint them white, they will make for fantastic additions to your reception area if you hang lanterns from them.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
