{#122} pretty paperwhites

happy thursday friends! I’m ecstatic with everyone’s positive response to the series. it seriously means so much to me when you comment on my blog. thank you!

so, i covered poinsettia and amaryllis, so the only logical choice would have to be paperwhites.  can anything be prettier than paperwhites?  nope…don’t think so. these simple and fragrant blooms are my favorite element for a winter wedding along with serving delicious hot cocoa {with uber adorable snowflake marshmallows} to your guest toward the end of the night...aren't they the perfect little midnight treat?  my only big suggestion for incorporating paperwhite in your wedding is to probably avoid using them as centerpieces because the scent might be a little strong for your guests, but do consider using them for your bouquet or placing them on the guestbook or escort card table instead.

  17. I love the colors together...so beautiful for a winter wedding. I love these colors instead of the tradition red that you see for many winter weddings. The ribbon is beautiful and the snowflake marshmellows are so cute!
