Real Winter Wedding: Megan & Tommy – Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Megan and Tommy, held at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in Lake Tahoe, CA. Two feet of snow had fallen the weekend before the wedding, making for a beautiful winter backdrop. The couple spends every weekend possible in Lake Tahoe together in the winter so the location was the perfect place for their wedding celebration.

The wedding ceremony was a quick 25 minutes outdoor setting, with classic Christmas tunes playing in the background. They served their guests hot chocolate, coffee and tea along with hand warmers and shawls to keep them warm. Unique touches like cones full of biodegradable snow was placed on all the aisle seats to throw at the end of the ceremony which made it very fun and playful for their guests. To keep warm the bridesmaids wore Uggs and Sorel boots under their long gowns.

DIY: Pine Tree Table Numbers

Finalizing all the details for your winter wedding? If you’re looking for a chic way to bring the rustic feel of the outdoors inside, and you want something stylish for your tabletops, here’s a little DIY project that will guide guests to their tables in a fresh and festive way.

Supplies

  • Artificial pine tree (or real ones if you can find them this petite)
  • Spray paint and acrylic craft paint (we chose a sparkly one to add a little dazzle)
  • Paint brush
  • Wood dowel
  • Wood number
  • Burlap
  • Glue gun

Step 1: Prep Your Table Number

Spray paint your wood number with the base color you chose. To save time, you can do this earlier in the day (or the night before) to let it completely dry before applying the paint.

Step 2: Paint It Pretty

Paint on your acrylic top coat to your fancy. We laid it on thick to optimize the sparkle!

Step 3: Wrap It Up

Our little pine tree came with burlap pre-attached. If yours doesn’t, simply cut a square large enough to be able to cinch the top with string and secure it to your tree.

Step 4: Glue and Stick

Using your glue gun, affix the dowel to the back of the wood number. Stick it into the bottom of your tree until it can stand on its own… and enjoy!

DIY: Pinecone Poms for Winter Weddings

Ceremony and reception decor costs can really add up when planning a wedding, especially in winter when everything is brought indoors. But don’t fret, we’ve got a budget-friendly way to create a chic winter look all your own. Today, it’s all about pinecones and how to make an oh-so-pretty pomander for your winter occasion.

Supplies

  • White styrofoam balls
  • Artificial pinecones
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Glue gun
  • Floral pin
  • Scissors

Step 1: Prep Your Pine

We found these artificial pine cones at our local craft store, and chose of mix of sparkly, plain and frosted styles to give the pom some dimension. Heat up your glue gun. Cut your pine cones down so there’s only 1-2 inches of stem left.

Step 2: Glue and Stick

Like arranging a bouquet, work your way around the ball to push the pinecones in by their stems. Remember, it’s okay if the white of the ball shows through (like ours). Since it’s white, it’ll look like snow! To ensure the cones stay in place, dab each stem with hot glue before you push it into the styrofoam. Don’t forget to leave a small space for your hanging ribbon.

Step 3: Hang and Admire

Cut a piece of ribbon to the hanging length you desire. Fold the ends so you have a base to glue it to the styrofoam. Glue in place, and put your floral pin in for extra hanging strength. Then, fill the rest of your ball with remaining pinecones. Let everything set overnight before hanging.

Create as many of these, in as many sizes, to create a chic winter atmosphere. Then, hang on chair backs, shepherds hooks or wherever you see fit!
