It used to be that people only got married during the Summer. Well, if they were having a big wedding, that is. Nowadays, weddings are happening year-round. The only problem with this, is that you need to prepare for a Winter wedding much differently than you do for a summer wedding.
Here are some of the hot Winter Wedding Ideas for 2012 + 2013
Winter 2012 & 2013 Wedding Dresses
Wedding Dresses are leaning back towards the elegance of yesteryear. Lace, silks, and brocades can be seen in dresses from the top designers. Modern twists like high-low hemlines, sheer necklines, and bare backs are also on-trend. And, of course, lace sleeves are still so hot, thanks to Kate Middleton.
Colored gowns are very popular this season as well. Most brides are keeping it to a soft shade like silver, icy blue, or a blush pink.
Celebrating New Years on January 1st dates back to the times of Julius Caesar. Sure, you can go out and party, but that’s not always for everyone.
One great solution to that is First Night. I happen to live in one of the towns where First Night is still going strong. First Night is an arts-based event that celebrates the New Year without focusing on Alcohol. In our town, it’s held downtown with each participating venue hosting a different band or event. And they usually ring Midnight with a variety of fireworks.
While there are always tons of festivities that you can go to, you don’t always want to be out with the people that may be drunk or otherwise inebriated. You can have fun at home, too!
