If you’re getting married in the Fall or Winter, you likely chose your wedding date with the crisp, cool temperature in mind. However, many brides getting married in these cooler months tend to also forget an important accessory- a wrap or topper to keep you warm!

Getting Married In The Fall or Winter? Dont Forget This Accessory! via TheELD.com

While staying warm might be the last thing on your mind right this second, you definitely need to be thinking about your accessories now, so as to avoid the extra stress (and cost) involved with having to get something at the last minute. We’ve partnered with our favorite wedding store, BHLDN, to share a few gorgeous cold weather wraps and toppers that will keep you fashionable and warm on your wedding.

So if you’re getting married in the Fall or Winter, head over to BHLDN and start thinking about a wrap or a topper NOW! I know what you’re thinking- but I won’t be cold, I don’t need something like that. But believe me- I’ve planned a wedding or two (or three or five) in the cold months- it’s no fun when the bride is under a blanket instead of on the dance floor!

Chic, feminine style, industrial elements, and wanderlust all played a beautiful part in making these marble inspired wedding ideas come to life. I myself was incredibly inspired by concrete and marble mixed with feminine elements, and when I told Adair of Dairing Events, she too was instantly inspired, and we got started in bringing our inspiration to life. Shades of white and gray combined with the palest tone of blush created a chic style, and gorgeous florals by Shea Hopely added a softness that can only be achieved through flowers. Vintage pieces from Southern Charm Events created the most beautiful vignette, and a classically elegant stationery suite by Olivia Grace Paperie was absolute perfection. Everything was captured by Sarahdipity Photos, and we cannot wait for you to take in all of the gorgeous inspiration!

From Adair of Dairing Events:

Caroline and Brad are a real life Dairing Couple. They were so sweet to help me tell the story behind this styled shoot featured today.

While we are forecasting trends for 2017 Weddings, we have started to see a reigniting of elopements! So many couples are now opting out of the large affairs and planning smaller, more intimate, celebrations of their love. In this styled shoot, we joined a couple’s love for travel with their love for each other. Imagine this — heading to the airport and hopping on the next flight leaving, hand in hand with the person you want to spend your forever with and your best friend by your side to act as witness to the vows. It’s a beautiful thing. I was totally inspired by the quote that you will see throughout the shoot, “Home is not where you are from, it is where you belong. Some of us travel the whole world to find it, others find it in a person.” It speaks to all of us who have found love.

The Prime Osborn Convention Center in Downtown Jacksonville was the perfect backdrop to our story, with the gorgeous marble columns and walls, and an incredible history! It was originally Jacksonville’s first Train Terminal, built in 1919.

Our other inspiration behind the shoot was showing how you can take concrete and marble and make those more industrial elements work in a feminine way. Our fashionista bride loves the soft mixed with the edgy, so pairing her gorgeous lace gown from M Couture Bridal with a black leather jacket was the perfect touch.

Marble is popular trending element, and we love how the swirling grays, whites, and silvers can really enhance your color palette no matter what other tones you choose. Of course, we love rose gold and copper, and coming into the Fall we are going to see a lot more of those metallic shades.

All of the jewelry was custom designed by Corrie McCoy Jewelry specifically for our shoot! Each piece was designed to act as a statement piece for a bouquet and then at the reception, to be worn as a necklace! It’s the perfect Bridesmaid gift!

Alana and Justin met online, got engaged under a waterfall during a trip to see his family in South Africa, and it’s safe to say their Gainesville wedding day at Sweetwater Branch Inn was completely lovely. They’re both inspired by their heritages, travel, and places they’ve lived, so all three played important roles during their ceremony and reception and also in their décor.

The pair were married in November, so they opted for a darker color palette. Alana’s off the shoulder lace dress is jaw-dropping, and I love how the bridesmaids continued the lace trend in their black gowns. The bouquets by Prange’s Florist are incredible, and I love how the beauty only continued inside their reception where animals served as table numbers as a nod to their engagement trip!

Masterpiece Weddings planned all of the beauty, and Emily Katherine Photography captured every image. It’s safe to say, I’m thrilled to share Alana and Justin’s unique, fun, and poignant day with you below!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My mom was so amazingly patient and supportive during the planning process, from finding and meeting with vendors to dealing with me being completely overwhelmed by many of the planning decisions. I wouldn’t have been able to make it through the planning without her!  Our photographer was also so patient and relaxing to work with – I instantly trusted her and by the wedding day she felt like part of the family.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

To find people who were low stress, not pushy with their own ideas, and who understood I wasn’t someone who had been dreaming about my wedding for years! I wanted people I trusted so that I didn’t have to think about anything on the wedding day. I ended up with an amazing group of vendors who I would hands down recommend to anyone.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I wanted something that felt natural, warm, and inviting but also elegant and romantic. My husband is South African and since we decided to have the wedding in Florida, I wanted to incorporate as many South African touches as much as possible. You’ll see a lot of details with a South African influence – the proteas in the bouquets, the animal table “numbers,” the favors… I was thrilled with how everything came out.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

It felt like an amazing party where we had a ton of fun with the people we care about the most.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Try not to make your vision too specific, especially with the details. One of my favorite memories of the wedding day was walking into the reception hall and seeing that everything had turned out so much better than I imagined it would. Finding vendors I trusted allowed me to give them the freedom to take my ideas and make the wedding better than I could have!

Nikki and Ryan felt as though they were taking a risk when they opted for a wine themed wedding for their day at Orlando’s Cyprus Grove Estate. Wine corks were accented with flowers for the gents’ boutonnieres, wine barrels were stationed on either side of their aisle, and wine bottles served as table numbers. With help and guidance from their wedding planner, Runway Events, it’s safe to say their risk paid off beautifully! Pink, red, grey, and gold filled their wedding day palette – a gorgeous combination for a New Year’s Day soiree! Rustic details meet lovely notes of glam in today’s fete (plus a dessert bar with donuts!), and I’m so excited to share the photos taken by Captured by Belinda and Nikki’s best advice below. Keep reading, y’all!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

This question is a toss up–  it’s between my fabulous wedding planner who truly helped me with familiarizing myself with how weddings work, styling, and getting everything coordinated day of so I had nothing to worry about. My sister, aka maid of honor, who was always around whatever I needed whether it was just to vent, give me advice, or just making sure my guests were having a good time on wedding day. However, I really think this honor has to go to my husband for supporting me throughout the wedding process from beginning to end and for making me feel beautiful on our special day.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

The most important thing was professionalism. I needed to find a team that was organized, timely at responding to emails, and able to answer all my questions.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

My  husband and I decided on a wine themed wedding – I mean who doesn’t like wine?  We thought we could utilize the common day wine materials for DIY projects to help save costs. Searching Pinterest and the web we started to develop our picture perfect wedding. We decided on a winter color palate that both captured a mixture of elegance and rustic qualities: A luscious rustic pink, glamorous gold, deep red, and gray blue. With the help of family and friends we made a luxurious wine cork chandelier, eye catching wine bottle trays, and spray painted wine bottles with DIY labels for center pieces. We captured our theme with two flower filled wine barrels lining our ceremony aisle, a wine barrel table topped with a beautiful candy display, and the rustic elegance of our sweet heart table set.
