Are those jingle bells I hear?
Or wedding bells?
Or ... BOTH?
Bundle up babe, because winter wedding sweets are coming your way!
There's nothing quite as magical as being married in the winter.
I wouldn't know, I got married in July, but I've seen pretty pictures!

Here's one now. These snowflakes are so dainty, I'd like to whip out my piping bag and make some just to hang on my tree.
Oooh, here are some more.
I don't actually have a piping bag, but Pinterest tells me I can make snowflakes with glitter and a glue gun. It's basically the same thing, right?
But back to the splendor of winter:
Just imagine the snowflakes gently falling, the poinsettias fragrantly blooming ... wait, do poinsettias actually have a smell?
If not, I suggest gingerbread.
Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm a married (gingerbread) man!
If you are lucky enough to have a white Christmas wedding, your color scheme can be super simple. One big burst of color set against all that white, and you're good to go.

Whabam! I like how the beaded garland is just a bit skewed; it keeps the cake looking playful instead of too perfectly perfect.
But if it's perfection you're after, you can't go wrong with an elegant classic.
Bonus: should you literally get cold feet, you can always switch out the cardinal and holly for a bluebird and daisies, and no one will ever know come spring!
Or hey, why not go monochromatic?
Who needs color when you have houndstooth and pom-poms? Is it wrong to wish this cake was a sweater? A sweater that I owned?
This topper is my favorite thing in the history of history.

And the cross-stitched reindeer tier needs to be put into production as outerwear, like yesterday, because this is also another cake I need to wear.
But let's talk about accessories. Why not crown your wedding cake with a claddagh ring, to symbolize love and loyalty?
Not exactly sure what the reindeer are representing, bridesmaids maybe? But they sure are hardcore repping cuteness. Also loving the candy striped details!
Speaking of details, do my eyes deceive me, or are these ruffles edged ever-so-slightly in gold?
That is a whole 'nother level of wintery wonderment. Just gorgeous.
Well baby, it's cold outside, so here is one last cake for celebrating some nippy nuptials:

...a sparkling stunner that could party all through a winter wedding straight into the New Year!
