Winter weddings present an opportunity to spice up your cocktail hour and reception with both warm and cool drinks.
Welcome guests in from cold with warm, mulled cider, flavored chai teas or delicious hot cocoa, all of which can be made from organic and fair trade ingredients. Then, once the party is well underway at the reception, invite everyone to cool their dancing heels with chilled drink options, infused and garnished with winter favorites like sugared cranberries and peppermint.
Be it warm or cool, your drink menu will be a hit!
As you get aisle ready in the weeks and months to come, don’t forget about a regimen for healthy and beautiful skin!
We’re totally loving Eu2Be, a decadent body care line that features a trio of skin essentials—Shower + Soak Soap, Nurture + Nourish Lotion and Enrich + Radiate Oil. Each is created with nutrient-rich ingredients from all over the world including Brazilian oils like babassu, passiflora, buriti and tamanu. With just a hint of fragrance, they will keep skin moist, healthy and radiant throughout the winter months. And the products are made in the USA, contain no parabens or petroleum and are gluten free.
The travel sets would make amazing gifts for the girls or in welcome bags!
Learn more about the wonderful story behind the Eu2Be and grab some yummy products for this weekend’s eco spa day in.
Cortney wanted a simple and elegant wedding. Although the weather forecast predicted clouds and thunderstorms, the day turned out to be sunny and beautiful. A lovely canvas for the wedding of her dreams.
Inspired by her shimmering Jenny Packham gown, the white and cream color palette was accented with metallic, and she and Aaron opted for an intimate luncheon as opposed to a larger reception.
Her advice to fellow brides? “Don’t get stressed—this is YOUR day. ENJOY it and take every second in. It goes by fast so don’t stress over little things— it may seem important in the moment but won’t matter looking back on it.”

Grooms can get creative, too!
For spring weddings, local plants, flowers and even recycled paper make for fashionably fun boutonnieres. Add a little twine for rustic, natural look, or upcycled fabric (maybe Dad or Grandpa’s hankie?) to the stems for an extra eco touch.
Don’t forget the groomsmen!
