Ho! Ho! Ho! Planning a Christmas wedding

If Christmas is your favourite time of year then jingle bells and a Christmas wedding might be right up your street.

Deck the halls with boughs of holly……’

Tis the season to be jolly….

Imagine it’s cold outside, the smell of mulled wine is in the air, mistletoe is your wedding decoration of choice – the wedding march starts AND here comes the bride!

Christmas isn’t the most common wedding theme, but for those who just love the winter season, it really has got to be one of the best.

Creating a Christmas winter wonderland wedding

First, begin by creating a mood board with all the white winter wonderland elements you want to develop a solid idea of your wedding decor and style. There are so very many shades of white; but it’s best to avoid those that are too bright, too cold and stark – you want a wedding that’s inviting after all.

Choose white fabric for the table linens and any other elements, such as ribbons or bows, making sure textures combine well. Add in some greenery to complete your winter wonderland wedding look. Consider adding natural elements, such as pine cones and green foliage like ivy, holly, and of course mistletoe! Then combine with deep reds with flowers like amaryllis.

Getting everyone in the Christmas wedding mood

Sprinkling Christmas elements throughout your wedding – from flowers and attire to décor and food the Christmas spirit is sure to make it a very special day.

Add a touch of mistletoe to your wedding bouquet, as well as some aromatic eucalyptus leaves for a wintery look. Choose winter flowers in deep red and combine with forest-green foliage tied together with a long red ribbon for a Christmassy look.

Wedding favours can be wrapped up as Christmas gifts for all, gingerbread could be made up with iced place names on each table and the DJ could play some of your favourite Christmas tunes to get everyone in the Christmas mood.
