Throwing a winter wedding and looking for some cool style ideas that allow you to embrace the season without being too theme-y? New York-based wedding and event design company VP Events (who recently planned the Winter Wonderland-themed Sweet Sixteen party of Avery Singer, daughter of RHONY's Ramona) just sent me their top style tips for a winter bash:
Embrace birch. White birch is a stylish (and inexpensive) way to create a wintry forest look. You can buy birch in bulk at any craft store—just group the branches together in various jars and vases.
Hire a professional lighting designer.Rather than using traditional twinkle lights or candles, invest in snowball lights, a lighting technology that gives the illusion of icicles hanging from the ceiling.
Create an indoor lounge. Make guests feel cozy by creating a winter lounge cabana—just arrange satin pillows and cushions together, and section off the area with gathered white tulle.
Make it snow. Snow in Seconds makes creating a wintery feel easy. The tool creates fluffy artificial snow that's cold to the touch and lasts for days.
