It’s the most wonderful time of the year to have a wedding! If you’re anything like me when it comes to the holiday season, then you’ll probably know for exciting it is to plan the festivities! Now imagine planning your own wedding during the most wonderful time of the year! When it comes to wedding planning, the most important part to keep in mind is the timeframe. Are you getting married near Christmas time or New Year’s? Would you like to incorporate the holidays spirit in your wedding or would you rather keep it classic? In all cases, here are our top Christmas wedding ideas that will put you in the holiday spirit!
1- Christmas Wedding Invites!
First of all, let’s start with the wedding invites! If you want to host a Christmas wedding, it’s a good idea to inform your guests about what to expect. Choose a Christmas-y design for your wedding cards to put your loved ones in the spirit at first glace! You can either go for the classic cards with defined Christmas designs or think outside the box and choose a music-box for example that plays a Christmas song.
This simple yet elegant invitation card still give out wedding invite but with the simplest touch of holiday vibes. It can be as simple as that or it can also be as extra as an E-card, for example. It all depends on your perspective and how you’d like your wedding to be.
2- Let’s Talk Cake
Next, we cannot forget about the cake! If you’re still on the fence of whether you’d like to have a full-on Christmas theme or not, here’s a quick tip: Add a small touch. You don’t need to have Santa Clause giving you away, (unless that’s something you want!). Adding a simple Christmas touch to your wedding cake can do the trick. How about a red velvet cake with mistletoe designs? Or even a full white cake with greenery and red details to recall the holiday spirits.
3- Winter Wonderland Shoot!
Christmas lights everywhere and the white snow decorating the streets is a reason enough to want to have a winter photoshoot. Go out and take the most romantic pictures for your wedding day! After all, these are the remaining memories you’ll hold on to for years to come. Make sure you incorporate the overall mood of the season with the shining lights and glistening snow, the perfect romantic shots!
4- Include Your Bridesmaids in the Theme!
Out with the old, in with the new! Ditch the classic gold, silver and pink bridesmaid dresses, and choose the perfect winter shades! A deep burgundy shade is the perfect option, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding in the snow. The vibrant yet cozy color will give just the right contrast with the white snow, making it a magical combination. It’s a great idea to incorporate your bridesmaids’ color in your bridal look. You can add a few burgundy flowers to your bridal bouquet or wear a similar shade of lipstick, or both!
5- A Magical Walk Down The Aisle!
Now, for the couples who want to go all out, red flowers, Christmas tree and all, we’ve got your covered! Imagine walking down an aisle lined with Christmas poinsettia and lit candles… Are you sold on the idea yet? The most perfect and romantic way to walk towards your new life.
A good idea as well is to give your guest the poinsettia plants as a wedding favor, instead of using regular flowers that will go to waste.
6- Christmas Wedding Reception!
Next, your receptions hall of course! Create the perfect Christmas decoration at your wedding hall. This will be a great touch, especially if you’re having your ceremony on Christmas Eve. It’s a way to celebrate the holidays with your loved ones who chose to celebrate you on that day!
7- A Toast, for The Happy Couple!
Last but definitely not least, drink for the occasion. And I don’t mean a regular drink, I mean a signature drink! What’s better than raising a toast with a special drink, served especially at your wedding. Contact your bartender and create a drink that your guest would like, all while incorporating the Christmas theme!
How pretty are those champagne drinks with a mistletoe decoration! The ultimate holiday drink and a special way to raise a toast!
Saying I Do on Christmas day is the perfect way of starting your blessed life as a married couple. It’s a renown family day where you choose to spend it with your loved ones, so make sure you keep that holiday spirit alive and enjoy your nuptials with the closest people to your heart, making the event twice as special and precious.
