What’s more romantic than curling up beside a roaring fireplace and watching the snowfall with a loved one? If you’re considering hosting a winter wedding, why not take all of these cozy elements that make the season so charming, and incorporating them into your wedding with a log cabin theme!? Adding small natural touches like pine cones, garland, and holly enhance the rustic log cabin feel and can make all of the difference. Here are a few must-haves if you plan on having a log cabin inspired wedding this winter!
Hot Chocolate Bar
Treat your guests to a decadent hot chocolate bar after the chilly ceremony! Your spread should include cinnamon, chocolate chips, and of course, mini marshmallows! Garnish the table with garland, pine or eucalyptus branches for a festive accent!
If you have an outdoor ceremony, blankets are not only practical but an adorable addition to your cozy event! Bonus points if you can get them monogrammed and hand them out as favors for your guests.
Lantern Wreath Centerpiece
There’s nothing more romantic than the warm glow of a candle flickering across the table at your wedding. Place a real or faux candle in a rustic lantern and surround it with a full rosemary wreath, adorned with rich red roses and pine cones, for a true log cabin feel.
Cinnamon Stick Napkin Rings
It’s all in the details, and napkin rings are no exception! Tie small pieces of cinnamon sticks and holly around your napkins for easy and affordable decor.
If you get lucky enough with a fresh snowfall, paired with a white dress, you’re going to want a bouquet that pops! We suggest rich red roses with pine cones and variegated holly to keep with the theme. You’ll also want to add some naked seeded eucalyptus as filler, along with Star of Bethlehem and red hypericum berries. You can also include green millet, Queen Anne’s lace, and leucadendron to achieve a fuller, more intricate bouquet.
Pinecone Name Cards
This is such a creative and simple way to use a pine cone, but the results are magical! Try spray painting the tops white and dipping them in glitter for a frosted look!
Log Card Box
Rather than having your guests toss their cards into an empty gift bag or glass bowl, why not go the extra mile and create a festive log card box!? Carve you and your beloveds names onto the front with the date, and it can even serve as a memento in your home.
