Red and Green may be the Christmas colors by excellence, but, an all-green Christmas wedding can bring a more homely and rustic charm to the ceremony. Getting married at around Christmas time will undoubtedly provide you with one of the most- if not the most- magical events of your life. From the tree to the cookies, there are quite a few ways in which you can very easily incorporate a green theme to your ultra-special Christmas wedding. Best of all, contrary to what most people believe, you won’t even need a huge budget to adopt this theme. In fact, a green festive wedding demands quite a lot of DIY, which ultimately cuts back on certain costs.
If you want to go all the way, then, by all means, don’t hesitate to decorate your entire house and yard in a typical Christmas fashion. This way, you can very easily string green fairy lights around your front porch or trees, if you have any. This will certainly provide an exquisite backdrop to couples who are having a home wedding or, at the very least, a home reception. A lavish green Christmas wedding decor will also add a fun and festive touch to the overall atmosphere and put all the guests in a party mood!
Of course, there’s no rule which states that you can’t go for a green wedding cake. However, if this sounds a bit over the top for you, why don’t you opt for a typical white wedding day and spruce it up by adding some green touches around the cake? Hanging Christmas balls or pine needles are wonderful ways to infuse a festive look to your wedding cake table. Similarly, think about giving the customary champagne the sack in favor of a perfectly chilled eggnog for the wedding toast. In fact, you may even serve it up in green rimmed glasses for an ultra-Christmassy look!
Don’t forget that the best way to enhance a green theme would be to add some red touches to the overall decor. Some red sprinkles or red flowers around the wedding cake will draw more attention to the green theme. Don’t forget to select this hue for your wedding favors as well: Christmas tree cupcakes or Christmas cookies are the best ways to put your guests into a festive mood.
Of course, the bride can even don a green wedding dress. In fact, if your groom agrees to it, he can either wear a matching green tux or even a red one for a more Christmas-like look.
