10 Ultra-Cozy Settings for Your Winter Wedding
With the holiday season quickly approaching, we can’t help but dream of snowy scenery, warm fireplaces and the nostalgia that accompanies being home with loved ones. In fact, there is a Danish word that embodies all of these cozy feelings: hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”). The dictionary defines hygge as a quality of cosiness and comfortability that brings about a feeling of contentment or well-being. Another author who spent three years in Denmark described the term as “the absence of anything annoying or emotionally overwhelming; taking pleasure from the presence of gentle, soothing things.”
The simplicity of a single glowing candle, or sipping on a warm mug of tea with friends on a cold morning are both examples of creating the feeling of hygge. If you’re in the process of planning a winter wedding, incorporating a little hygge into your big day will make your guests feel welcome and present as they celebrate this new chapter of your life as a couple.
