Winter Wedding Idea to Love: Hot Chocolate

This is a guest post by Georgie Selih.

Most people think that if you want your wedding to be perfect, you should avoid organizing it during the colder months. However, ‘tis the season to be jolly, so if you love snow, winter scenery, and the festive spirit, don’t hesitate to organize your wedding in winter. 

You might be worried about your guests being cold, but there are plenty of ways to keep warm, and one of the most delicious ones is definitely enjoying a cup of hot chocolate. So, if you have your date set and you love chocolate, here are some unique ways in which you can serve hot chocolate at your wedding and warm your guests’ hearts.


Add Some Marshmallows

A cup of hot chocolate cannot be complete without some marshmallows. You can buy heart-shaped marshmallows, or you can go with the winter theme and get marshmallows shaped like snowmen or snowflakes. This will definitely enhance the whole winter-wedding atmosphere, and who doesn’t love marshmallows?

Spice Things Up With Mexican Hot Chocolate

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your wedding a bit, consider serving spicy Mexican hot chocolate. It’s just as hot and sweet as the regular hot chocolate but with a twist – a bit of cayenne pepper. It might sound odd, but it tastes heavenly, and the spicy flavor will surely keep you warm for a while. This type of
hot chocolate also goes great with sweet churros or cinnamon sticks, and you can add some whipped cream on top.

All White Everything

If you’re planning on having an all-white wedding, choose white hot chocolate to match the color palette. You can add a bit of white-chocolate liquor to enhance the taste, or, if you want to keep it non-alcoholic for the kids, you can mix it with coconut or add some peppermint extract. Either way, your guests will

definitely enjoy both the taste and the appearance of this hot beverage.


Add Some Ice Cream

It might sound crazy to put something cold into your hot chocolate, especially in the middle of winter, but a single scoop of ice cream will make your hot chocolate extra thick and creamy. You can also improve the visual aspect of the drink with some peppermint sticks that your guests can use for stirring – they smell amazing and they fit into the winter theme as well.

Set Up A Hot Chocolate Bar

You can set up a hot chocolate bar outside the venue so your guests can enjoy a cup of hot beverage whenever they want. This is a great idea on a chilly day, as it will allow your guests to stay warm both inside and outside the venue. Just make sure the bar can cater to everyone’s tastes by having marshmallows, sprinkles, flavored syrups, whipped cream, and everything else that comes to mind.


Complete The Feel

To make your special day even more beautiful, decorate your venue in a style that fits the season. You can add white flowers and candles to complement the white hot chocolate, or you can hang some marshmallows from the ceiling to create an illusion of falling snow, which will go great with the marshmallows in the hot chocolate. If you need help setting up the decorations, you can sign up for wedding day packages that include assistance with such details and much more. After all, we all know how much details matter when it comes to weddings, so don’t hesitate to get a little help.

Having a winter wedding can be just as magical as having an any-other-season wedding, as long as you keep your guests warm and comfortable. Offering your guests some hot chocolate, instead of something typical like coffee, will not only help them keep the cold away, but also ensure that they will always remember your wedding as a wonderful and unique experience.
