Thanksgiving marked the beginning of “engagement season"—however if you were on Facebook over the weekend, you probably already knew that! Though not as popular as spring and summer, the period from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to schedule your engagement photos. We adore these seasonal shoots—there’s nothing like snuggled-up couples to melt our hearts! Even if you’re not snowed in you can still create a romantic wintry setting with cozy sweaters, string lights, hot chocolate, and even some fake snowflakes. Here, are some of our favorite winter engagement sessions to inspire you.

You may think you have fewer options for wedding flowers if you’re having a cold-weather wedding, but we think there’s something elegant about a winter bouquet. By incorporating lush greens, pinecones, and flowers that stay in bloom year-round, you can create a gorgeous seasonal bouquet that brings a frosty wedding to life. For your inspiration, here are some of our favorite winter wedding floral arrangements:

While winter may signal the end of wedding season for some of us, it doesn’t mean the end of wedding-related events! The nice thing about attending these chilly-weather celebrations—think bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette outings, and rehearsals—is that you can often get away with repurposing your holiday party dress. In the winter months, sequins, glitter, velvet, and even sparkles become totally appropriate for any and every wedding event. Here, we’ve rounded up seven looks we’ll be sporting underneath our parkas:

Like so many other ’90s trends, the slip dress is making a comeback! We love the way this simple shape looks for weddings. (It might have something to do with the dress Monica wore when she married Chandler…) The new slip dresses are still as no-fuss as ever, and the body-con silhouette is still anything but boring! Here, some of our favorites for 2014:

Bridesmaid’s got back! While wedding gowns with dramatic and elegant backs have been a major trend in 2013, after October’s Bridal Fashion Week we’re willing to bet that the backless trend will hit bridesmaid dresses in 2014. We love that it’s subtly sexy and more fashion forward than your traditional bridesmaid silhouette.

When it comes to getting a beautiful back for the big day, we recommend exfoliating with dirt. luxe salt scrub followed by a little Caudalie Divine Oil for seriously glowing skin.

Here, our favorite new ways to get the look.

One of our favorite wedding details are the party favors. Unlike, say, your dress or your flowers, your favors are less about what you love and more about what makes your guests happy.

Picking out your favors is like shopping for a gift—but that doesn’t mean your favors have to be complicated or fussy. So before you go busting your budget or spending hours making over-the-top favors, check out our list of five super-easy wedding favors you can give your guests.
