I’m helping my SIL plan her wedding. She doesn’t use the internet (yeah I don’t know how she is going to plan this either!). She keeps describing the feel she is looking for as “cozy.” When I picture cozy, I picture winter but she is getting married in May. So, I’m turning to the bees for suggestions to help get the vision together. Here are pics of her venue and her colors are grey and peach.
How would you describe a cozy wedding?

Hmm… a cozy wedding to me would be small and intimate. Or, like you, in winter with a fire in the fireplace and hot cocoa.
Maybe she means a less-formal wedding? Like DIY/vintage style?

Unless she’s planning on sitting around a fireplace and handing out snuggies to her guests, I can’t imagine feeling “cozy” in May, haha!
Maybe she means “intimate”? Or maybe I’m just a terrible visionary.

I think Fall or Winter, Fireplace, candles, comfort food, jewel tones and ivory, lots of crystal, lots of texture…

yeah this has me thinking of hot cocoa too….. Maybe she means less stuffy, more intimate and relaxed?

No fireplace, no cozy. I went to a wedding last fall at a venue with a fireplace, and I remember standing around the fire during cocktail hour and thinking, ah, how cozy and warm.
So without the crucial fireplace, other elements of coziness might include a small venue/room, which means a small guest list, candle light (fire seems to be important here) and “intimate” music (not a DJ or a rocking band but a small jazz combo, acoustic guitarist, etc.).

Outside of winter cozy, I think small, intimate, bed and breakfast type of venue/decor.

Lots of candles, fabric draping, comfy lounge furniture, soft music….

Seeing the inside of her venue, I think it already looks cozy. Small, intimate,elegant….

I would think cozy means her wedding won’t be so formal that guests feel uncomfortable (been there). I think cozy means lots of personal details, a small guest list and just a more intimate reception.
