T’is the season to be jolly! And the season to tie the knot under the mistletoe. If you’re thinking of having a winter wedding and you absolutely love Christmas, then why not mingle your wedding day and Christmas together?The merry colors of red and green can be your wedding color scheme. Or you can pick out a softer pallet and add in some creativity and you will have a wonderfully unique Christmas wedding. Choose from traditional, to classic to rustic.
Add some sparkle by incorporating snowflakes on your theme. Let it work with soft blues and silver and white. Splash some glitter and crystals to give a winter wonderland feel to your Christmas-themed wedding. Start with the invitations, then bring down to your decorations—tables and chairs and cardholders etc.
Put some silvery snowflake sprinkles on your tables. Prettify the chairs along the aisle with Christmas trimmings and berries. Use silvery wintry pinecones too. Add some birds in fancy birdcages. This idea is simply timeless. For a Christmas feel add some dark reds and deep greens or rustic browns and some cream. Use stars and hollies. And butterflies, if you wish. Create a magical snow-covered forest in your reception venue. Use icicle centerpieces and frosty lighting. Adorn white sparkly white birch branches with crystals and white orchids. Use twigs and put them in big vases. Candles and berries and sticks from willow trees are great ideas too.
To add more panache to your Christmas wedding, get to church on time in a white horse-drawn carriage.For your wedding dress, you can upstage the holiday by being bold enough to wear ruby red. Or go for gown tinged with light champagne color with a dramatic train. Or simply go for the classic white wedding dress with silvery and sparkly ornaments. Put on your crystal-adorned shoes. Wear uber-romantic red lipstick. Keep your flower girls warm and toasty with fur wraps and warm fuzzy boots. Make your bridesmaids happy by incorporating fur stoles and elbow length gloves to their wedding attire.
Make sure you have a yummy spread of baked Christmas goodies for dessert. Serve Christmas comfort foods, hot soups, potpies, fondues, and roast. Your sweet treats can come in fancy little glasses. Have a Christmas-inspired or winter-inspired wedding cake. As wedding favor, treat your guests with something to keep them warm when they get home by sending them a pack of gourmet coffee, tea, cider and hot cocoa.And finally, if it’s snowing outside, make sure your photographer snags a picture of the falling snow as you walk down the aisle.
