In the midst of the beauty and cheer of the Christmas holidays, a couple somewhere is saying “I do”. For many of us, Christmas is that time of the year where we finally get to spend time with our families and travel upcountry. But why not have a Christmas wedding? If you’ve always wanted to have a Christmas themed wedding, here are some great ideas for you.
Choosing your wedding colors
Don’t feel restricted to choose red and green as your wedding colors. You can always consider other color palettes like silver, light blue and burgundy. Good thing with choosing green and red as your wedding colors is that, you can take advantage of the decorations already in place in most churches. You won’t pay an extra amount for décor if they are already placed by the church for Christmas.
Your wedding invitations should reflect your theme and colors. But be very careful on the choice of colors so that they are not mistaken for holiday cards. Make your wedding cards unique with a little touch of Christmas like snowflakes on the edges.
Wedding guest list
Having your wedding on Christmas can have its advantages and disadvantages. One of advantages is that most people travel during this time of the year so they might not make it to your wedding. You’ll have to send the invitations early enough so that people don’t make plans on your wedding weekend. But the good thing about Christmas weddings is that only your close friends and family are likely to attend and this will reduce your budget significantly.
Flowers and Décor
Flowers and decorations are usually pretty expensive during Christmas so you must be ready for some DIYs if you intend to save on costs. Look for DIY décor ideas online and see how you can create beautiful centerpieces for your reception.
There are lots of wedding cakes with a Christmas theme. You need to contact your baker early enough and ask for a number of design ideas with a theme of Christmas in mind. Don’t forget to add some holiday desserts.
Your Wedding gown
You can wear any kind of wedding gown during Christmas so long as it flatters your body type. You may consider adding an accessory like a red silk sash on the waist of your gown to give it that Christmas feel. A wedding dress with sparkly beads will also be perfect for this time of the year.
