While Seattle summer weddings unfold against a backdrop of brilliant flowers, winter works its own brand of magic on Seattle brides and grooms. From fresh fallen snow to fur-trimmed accessories, horse-drawn sleigh rides to snowflake sugar cookies, there's something very hot about a cold weather wedding.

Let the event planners at Kiana Lodge share the latest winter wedding trends for creating warmth indoors while winter winds blow outdoors.

Consider hot beverage bars, peppermint swizzle sticks, brides maids in snow boots sipping signature cocktails like hot buttered rum.

For décor, nothing delights like miles of traditional evergreen garland embellished with white roses and pepper berries.

Layering is the key, say our expert Seattle wedding planners, who blend plush fabrics and jewel tones with natural, rustic elements to create an "oh, wow!" winter setting on beautiful Puget Sound.
