Offer a pre-wedding treat
While your guests are waiting for the ceremony to start, offer them apple cider, tea or coffee to enjoy. Serve the beverages in customized cups or a personalized coffee sleeve adorned with your monogram and the date.
Hot chocolate bar
There’s no better way to warm up on a cold winter’s day than with a steaming cup of hot chocolate. It brings back memories of childhood and its sweet taste makes it a holiday favorite among guests of all ages. But many people like their hot chocolate prepared in different ways. This is why a hot chocolate bar is essential for a winter wedding. All you have to do is lay out all of the necessary ingredients and you can let your loved ones go to work on their perfect cup of cocoa. Don’t forget about all of these tasty and unique mix-ins:
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate syrup
- Caramel syrup
- Flavored creamers
Create a gathering area at your wedding reception with a fireplace. It can be used to warm everyone up and it can provide your guests with toasted marshmallows. Provide a table filled with everything they’ll need, like sticks and, of course, marshmallows. Believe it or not, there are more types of marshmallows than the classic vanilla. Opt for gourmet flavors like chocolate, cinnamon and peppermint. Your loved ones can eat them as-is, or you can provide all the trimmings to make some gooey s’mores. Both kids and adults will love this dessert option.
Sleigh rides aren’t just for Santa and his reindeer. You can transport yourself and your wedding party to the reception via sleigh (just make sure you have a coat!), or you can ride off into the snowy sunset with your new spouse. If you want to get your guests in on the action, offer sleigh rides during a set time at the reception.
