  3. RECEPTION: Tapered Candles and Retro Woodland Details – Mix it up with classics such as tall, white tapered candles that can work with just about any wedding theme–rustic with brass holders or ornate with black candelabra.

  5. FOOD: Mini-Entrees and Interactive Sips – Serve-up mini portions of rich, comfort foods so guests can try them all, without getting too full. Plus, make things interactive by serving seasonal drinks–such as cider and peppermint hot chocolate–that guests can heat up over an open flame.Picture6
  6. CAKES: One-Tier Wedding Cakes and Textured Gold Accents – Display many smaller cakes across tables, encouraging guests to get up and mingle, and try them all. Try out subtle metallic details, such as gold-frosted pinstripes or gold flakes sprinkled atop a simple cake.Picture7
  7. DRESS: Cozy Separates and Ice Blue Hues – Stay warm–and on-trend–with chunky knits and plush fabrics on top, paired with airy voluminous skirts. Also big are blue wedding dresses, once thought to be a symbol of purity in pre-Victorian times.Picture9
