5 Festive Ideas For A Christmas Wedding
Are you planning a Winter or Christmas wedding? There's no better time to get wed than at this magical time of year! Here, we've rounded up our favourite Winter Wedding inspiration...
Set the tone of your wedding with unique, festive invitations! Green calligraphy, hand drawn winter flowers and a red or gold wax seal are all chic ways of paying homage to the holiday season. Stick to the same style throughout stationary including: save the dates, invitations, order of service, name cards, menus and the seating plan.
From footwear to dress accessories and hair pieces - there are many ways to incorporate a little festive sparkle into your Christmas wedding! Add the finishing touch to your wedding dress by adding a shawl or belt with glittering embellishment, we adore this Diamanté Beaded Organza Belt by Morilee. When it comes to your wedding shoes you could be daring and go for red - they will look fabulous popping out under a white dress. Alternatively, green velvet heels are equally as unique! When it comes to your hair the choices are endless. Are favourite hair accessories include the stunning Valkrie Crown of Leaves Headpiece by Ivory & Co and the Crystal and Rhinestone Hair Vine by Morilee.
Have some fun at your drinks reception and enjoy a festive tipple or two! From the classics such as mulled wine and winter pimms to more unique offerings such as Gingerbread Martini and Snowball Daiquiri. For the young ones, you could have a hot chocolate bar with topping such as marshmallows, chocolate flakes and whipped cream. Your guests will soon be in the festive spirit!
For a holiday twist on the popular 'naked cake', top it with festive fruits and mistletoe! If you're going for an on-trend dessert table, you could feature ice-white macaroons, Christmas pudding cake pops and bauble shaped cupcakes. Don't forget to decorate your dessert table and backdrop for a stunning winter effect.
DÉCOR & WINTER BLOOMS
When it comes to your winter themed wedding décor there are unlimited opportunities. Whether you're are having a church or civil ceremony, you can light up your aisle with candles to give a warm glow. On each aisle seat you could feature a festive bloom to match your theme. Instead of traditional confetti, why not give each of your guests a sparkler? You'll get some stunning photos! Add wintry additions to your flowers such as pine cones, evergreen branches and even Christmas ornaments! For a pop of festive colour red and white is a timeless combination. We'd recommend running with the same theme throughout from your bouquets to button holes and even table centrepieces.
