Christmas is a time to get together and get merry with family & friends, which is why more and more couples are starting to realise, it is also the perfect time for a Wedding. Whether you want a winter wonderland, Santa’s grotto or just a cosy, close knit ‘sitting next to the fire’ kind of setting there are endless options on themes you can undertake in the Festive period to make your ideal wedding.
Every detail can be brought together to work towards your festive theme, from your colour scheme, to the decorations winter has just as many options as summer. Options are endless, but from us to you this Christmas ‘here are a few of our favourite things….’
Quite often it’s the little details that tie a theme together – try something as simple as using pine cones or baubles as your name card holders. This delicate little touch can add to a minimalistic table layout.
If you want to go all out, add holly and garlands to your candle center pieces, dress your table as if it is straight out of the North Pole. With winter trees and wreaths to decorate the room, you can set your Wedding Breakfast to look as picturesque as a Christmas card.
We can all hope that British weather will behave, but we know it mostly does not, even if you don’t get snow to fulfill your winter dreams then you can at least make your photos look like you had snow by using rice instead of confetti.
Keep your guests warm with replacing the usual fizz arrival drink with some mulled wine or a hot toddy. They will appreciate the winter warmer and the mugs and cups you can get to serve them in can make a great addition to your photos.
Christmas is a time for lights, probably not a giant waving Santa Claus, but simple fairy lights on a dark winter evening can make the perfect backdrop.
One thing is clear from festive wedding options, there is plenty of choice. Whether you want to go all out or you’re on a budget, it’s the little details that make this theme. Everyone knows that winter can be the most beautiful time of year, use this to your advantage, and make your Wedding day a part of this wonderful season!
