For winter weddings, we LOVE the idea of a hot cocoa bar. We went to a wedding once where there was a coffee and hot cocoa bar complete with different flavors of whipped cream, rock candy instead of sugar cubes, lots of little jars of spices for dusting, and peppermint sticks for guests to kick their drink up a notch. It was fantastic!
