Another Shot At An Inspiration Board

This wedding stuff is clearly becoming an addiction for me.

Even though there are many, many other things I should be doing right now, I still find myself looking for wedding inspiration--this time for winter weddings, drooling over pictures, reading more blog posts, and making more inspiration boards.


Well, at least you guys get something in the meantime, lol!

But first, an explanation of why the board doesn't completely match my last post:

At first I was thinking an icy, winter wonderland full of blues, silvers and crystal, but as I looked at my favorite unique venue I found it was calling for another kind of winter theme.

In the lodge-like ambiance I saw soft whites, the warm glow of candles, cozy textures and even, dare I say it, more of a rustic theme-- wood, berries, branches, pinecones and birds. I saw people warming themselves by the fire, being comforted by warm fuzzy blankets, drinking hot beverages and enjoying the welcoming atmosphere.

And I like all that, I really do.

But I just want it to look stunning and impressive, not just a cozy gathering. Why? Because I can! It's probably the first and only time I'll be able to make such an impression on my family and friends, and truly express a lot of my creativity that rarely gets tapped these days.

So I'm thinking to start with this warm, soft, and cozy base, and try to incorporate bits of glam and elegance without looking out of place... silver snowflakes in the fluffy white chandeliers, soft ribbons around the glass candle votives, clear snowflakes and candles hanging from the beams, etc. Perhaps even a large block of ice holding cold drinks, but bordered with soft fluffy faux snow.

So I call this "Cozy Winter Elegance":
