Wintertime may not be the most popular season to get married but there are a number of benefits to choosing a colder month. Namely, all of your wedding details will look decidedly different. One fun winter wedding detail we love? Serving warm drinks before the reception or at cocktail hour. (Think mulled apple cider or hot chocolate with a splash of peppermint schnapps.) Here, a few ways to personalize your favorite cold-weather cocktail.
