Getting married during winter offers the perfect opportunity to recreate a cosy atmosphere that is pleasant and familiar to your guests. It also gives you the chance to adapt your theme and what better theme to have during winter than a Christmas wedding!
Choosing a Christmas theme allows you to easily decide on your menu and decoration, as well as other elements, such as your wedding favours.
In this simple list, we elaborate on a few ideas you may find useful when planning your winter wedding.
Christmas Wedding Centrepieces
Centrepieces are a great way to capture the attention of your guests. To achieve that winter wonderland look at your Christmas wedding, you could get creative with branches and entwine them with fairy lights.
For a simpler and easier idea, you could fill fishbowls with fairy lights, baubles and pinecones. Coupling this with crackers on the table would complete that Christmas centrepiece decoration perfectly.
Christmas Wedding Flowers
Flowers are the hidden gems of wedding decorations. You really can’t go wrong with a floral arrangement using holly, pinecones, white flowers and red roses. If you want to go that extra Christmas mile, you could even make them look frosted with an ice spray.
Now what would a Christmas themed wedding be without a Christmas tree! Be sure to use baubles, tinsel and lights that match your colour theme. To personalise the Christmas tree even more, add handcrafted and personalised baubles and photographs.
Photography and Fancy Dress
To make your wedding photographs look even more beautiful, being creative with lighting in the winter can help greatly.
Contrasting a frosty back drop with cosy couple snaps enhances produces stunning romantic shots. If you’re lucky you might even get some snow, which could be the perfect backdrop for the most romantic shots.
To really incorporate that Christmassy atmosphere into your wedding, why not dress some of the wedding participants in Christmas related costumes? Bridesmaids could be fairies and page boys could be elves. Of course, somebody would need to dress as Santa Claus! Unless Mr and Mrs Claus have taken by the bride and groom.
A bit too much? You could ask waiting staff to wear festive patterned braces, bow ties and hats.
