Granted, not everyone will be on board with this idea but adding a bourbon or whisky tasting station will definitely keep everyone warm. Whisky and bourbon tricks your brain into thinking that you are actually drinking something hot even when you’re not. Do consider only offering this idea during cocktail hour and not during the entire reception as you do not want your wedding guests getting overly intoxicated.
Coffee and Hot Chocolate Bar
Adding a hot cocoa, coffee, or apple cider bar is a great idea for the folks that don’t really drink alcohol. Plus, the kids will love having hot chocolate.
Warming Hors d’oeuvres
Think about offering some warming appetizers as well. Mini grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup shooters, bite sized calzones, and hot garlic and cheddar biscuits are all great ideas.
Fire Pit or Bonfire
This idea will be dependent on your venue, but a fire pit or bonfire is a great way to keep your guests warm, especially if you have access to an outdoor reception area. Fire creates lots of ambiance and a cozy atmosphere. Plus you can have a s’mores station set up to make it even more fun. If your venue has an indoor fireplace, consider using it as well.
Warming Wedding Favors
Most newlyweds want to give their guests a parting gift. Here’s your chance to take care of two needs at once. Inexpensive throw blankets, hand-warmers, earmuffs, or cute mittens are all great ideas.
