Wintergreen Wedding Cake
During the warmer months, many couples go with a classic white colored wedding cake. However, with the snow on the ground and your egg shell colored gown, you can play up the color of the wedding cake. A hot trend of the moment is to decorate the dessert with sugar covered berries, edible pearls, and even winter green twigs and sprigs.
Although you don’t have to, many couples choose to decorate tables with favors for their guests. Instead of going bubbles or candles that are likely to get tossed out, offer your guests a more flavorful favor; gift them with gourmet chocolate covered nuts, dried berries, and even truffles.
Soft and Sheen Shoes

Should you choose to incorporate the soft and sheen fabric into your wedding day ensemble, you can wear anything from shoes to a clutch, dress details or flower bouquet embellishments, or even hair accessories such as headbands, bows, and more.
Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially when others want to give you their opinions. Keep in mind that this day is about you and your partner, so make decisions that the two of you are happy with!
