Getting married this Christmas season? There are so many fun ways to transform your wedding day into a glamorous winter wonderland. From festive food to snowflake confetti, here is all the inspiration you need to plan the perfect Christmas wedding.
1). Candy Canes
Add a touch of Christmas fun to your day with this unique idea. Perfect for your table centrepieces or as adorable wedding favours- there’s no better festive idea for a bride with a sweet tooth!
2). Let It Snow!
Bring the outside inside on your wedding day and turn your venue into a snowy paradise. From snowflake confetti to delicate snow-dusted cupcakes, there are so many ways to let it snow on your wedding day.
3). Fairy Lights
Whether you’re dreaming of a subtle winter wedding or an over-the-top Christmas extravaganza, fairy lights are a fab way to bring a bit of festivity to your décor. Simply drape some fairy lights and lanterns around your venue, and instantly transform your day into a magical Christmas wedding.
4). Seasonal Décor
If there’s one thing that makes a Christmas wedding, it’s seasonal decorations! If tinsel and baubles aren’t your thing, get your bridesmaids together and get involved with some fun wedding DIY to give your décor a homemade feel.
5). Classic Colour Scheme
From glam red & gold, to wintery blue & silver, the right colour scheme can make a Christmas wedding. If you’re stuck for ideas, check out our Pinterest, which is stocked full of beautiful colour scheme ideas that will make your wintery wedding day perfectly unique.
6). Wedding Woollens
Don’t let the winter weather get you down! There are so many elegant ways to keep warm during your wedding day. Whether you wear a beautiful white winter coat, or a cosy, fluffy cape, make sure you don’t freeze on your big day.
7). Festive Food
Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like festive food. Instead of serving classic wedding food, why not serve your guests a traditional Christmas dinner? This is the perfect way to add a bit of festive fun to your big day.
Perfect for wintery wedding photographs, mistletoe will instantly bring some Christmas magic to any wedding. If you want mistletoe included in your décor, why not tie a little bit onto the chairs at your wedding breakfast?
9). Mulled Wine
Replace your wedding cocktails with this classic Christmas drink. Your guests will love sipping on warm mulled wine as they enjoy your magical winter wedding day.
Before you choose your venue, keep your theme in mind. For a Christmas wedding, opt for a venue with a cosy atmosphere that can be easily decorated. Remember, outside space isn’t so important for winter weddings! Instead, focus on finding a venue with a beautiful interior.
11). Gingerbread Centrepieces
Edible centrepieces are super on-trend this winter, so get creative with your wedding breakfast tables and let your guests munch on yummy gingerbread. To take this idea even further, you could always opt for adorable gingerbread cake-toppers!
12). Christmas Crackers
If you’re looking for a way to instantly bring some festive fun to your big day, Christmas crackers are a great way to do this. These also made amazing wedding favours for a couple who want their guests to take away a little bit of Christmas magic.
13). Hot Chocolate
To add a touch of luxury, serve your guests some indulgent hot chocolate instead of classic wedding champagne. If you want something even more extravagant, try serving delicious alcoholic hot chocolate!
14). Winter Flowers
Forget summer bouquets, make sure you choose flowers that reflect your gorgeous Christmas theme. Speak to your wedding florist about which flowers are best at this time of yet. For something a bit different – why not include a few snow-dusted pine cones in your wedding bouquet?
