Winter weddings can be fun and festive if you plan accordingly. Weddings are strange due to the moods of friends, family and your own wants and desires. The desires of the bride should come first, but in reality, mothers-in-law can put their spin on everything. First, find a theme you can agree on with your boyfriend and start a private Pinterest page that you can store ideas and reflect on during your process. Find warm attire and set the tone of the theme of your wedding with the tablescape. Sometimes wedding planners offer à la carte services including hourly rates and phone consultations, but before dishing out any fees, try picking the brain of the wedding planner or ask for advice from another bride or married couple of how they would have saved money.
