Winter Wedding Gifts and Guest Attire

Although you are incredibly excited to watch your loved one tie the knot, two of the most stressful things about attending a wedding is finding a flawless outfit and picking out a meaningful gift that the couple will cherish for years to come.

According to UK department store Debenhams, the increase in winter weddings has left guests feeling flustered. Most blogs advise donning short cocktails dresses for an evening wedding. However, such a skin-bearing  garment is a bit impractical against a snowy backdrop, even if you do have your favorite faux-fur coat or cashmere scarf to keep you warm. Before spending an entire day strolling through the stores, take a look at my tips on what to wear to a winter wedding.

I have also unearthed four exquisite winter wedding gifts on Etsy that will capture the hearts of any newlywed couple who has opted to have a winter marriage ceremony. I instantly fell in love with the nostalgia and pure love that radiates from the Winter Tree print, which has a digitally etched inscription of the couple’s name in snow.  The novel idea was created by April and Laurie, the photographers who own Picture It Perfect.

“We thought if we could personalize beautiful photographs, we might just have a product that others would enjoy and take special pride in,” the ladies recently told me. They carry a wide array of products in their Etsy shop, including save the date cards, calendars and wrapped canvases.
