A Very Christmas Wedding
published December 20th, 2013
It’s Christmas! Traditionally a time of being around your loved ones, in a magical atmosphere, sharing special memories, while surrounded by beautiful decorations. If you want to get married outside of the summer season and you love Christmas then there’s no better holiday to center your big day around, with glorious colors of red and green or gold.
If you're at a loss of how to incorporate the Christmas theme into your wedding, then here's a few ideas to get you started...
Your wedding bouquet could consist of a mixture of pine tree branches, pine cones, red berries and flowers in the one, and a bouquet full of pine tree branches in the other. A very festive affair!
A great way to surprise you friends would be to send them a Christmas card which doubles as a “Save the Date” card, marking your wedding date the following year. You could dress in Santa hats for the photo, visit a Christmas tree farm or have your picture taken around a log fire with Christmas stockings to really capture the spirit of the holiday season.
Another great idea is the Wishing Tree Guestbook, found on the Two Chics Photography site. One couple had a bowl of ornaments available for their guests to sign with good wishes and then hang on the tree. Inspired, and you can use the decorations on your tree each Christmas as a very special reminder of your big day.
For your Christmas centerpiece one idea is to put a few things like pine cones and cranberries into a mason jar. Very simple, but will look stunning - and capture the mood of the holiday season.
Finally, Christmas wedding paper trees, which are made from old book pages. Again, very simple, visually stunning - and at a minimum cost!
Christmas wedding ideas don't have to be tacky and garish. They can be festive yet chic when you have a garland with ornaments of silver and gold hanging from it or a simple pine cone and cranberry mason jar centerpiece to give to your guests as favors.
As with all wedding themes - less is always more.
