Silver Bells

When winter comes and the snow starts to fall there is something extra special about the way the lights glisten. Using that visual as the basis of your wedding theme will yield spectacular results. Choose gold and silver accent colors throughout your entire process. Start with gold or silver foil save the dates and wedding invitations and carry that classy and traditional wedding and holiday inspired glam all the way down the aisle.

Drape your tables with shiny runners and cover them with delicate candlelight. Keep your décor simple and romantic letting the touches of glistening light and the love that’s in the air stand on its own. Champagne and decadent desserts are a must!
