Decorations take a big part in your wedding planning as they set the mood of the occasion. Therefore, you need to choose the perfect details, match wedding decorations with the theme, and create a wonderful space that everybody will remember forever.
If you opted for a winter wedding, then we can just say – congrats! It is probably the most magical time of the year, while there is something cozy and warm about Christmas wedding. Bringing your family together, showing all your love and respect for them – holiday spirits in December will fulfill your hearts with joy and pure happiness.
We have prepared some of the best décor ideas that you can incorporate into your Christmas wedding. From velvet details to cozy blankets – everything counts as a perfectly done decoration.
Christmas Wedding Invitations
First of all, if you want to follow your winter decoration, then start with sending Christmas – inspired wedding invitations. The color palette should definitely be a mix of colors – red, green, and gold or white and blue for a winter wonderland theme. Details like small wreaths, red berries, and green holly trees are always welcome.
Wedding Venue Decorations
For space décor, you should find inspiration by looking at winter gardens. For a festive feel of Christmas, dress up your ceremony place with evergreens, anemones, persimmons, or snow-covered pinecones. Christmas flowers like poinsettia is not a mistake but concentrate more on the greeneries.
While Christmas is also a winter season, it is likely for couples to have a winter wonderland theme – blue and white shades to emphasize the cold or snowy time. Snow machines can also be used indoors – coordinate with the wedding planner to have it on in the middle of the first dance or during the wedding exit for a breathtaking view.
As the days get darker earlier during the season, complete the decoration with twinkling lights. Settle them in trees, aisle linings, stairs, or maybe, incorporate them with the floral arrangements. Hang them splendidly from the ceiling for a romantic venue.
Warm Welcome – Mulled Wine and Cookies
Before the ceremony, greet your guests with mulled wine and Christmas-designed cookies such as snowflake cookies. If you are having an outdoor wedding, this should keep them warm until the first dance. For kids, serve them with hot chocolate.
Velvet is one of the most luxurious materials that are typical for the winter season. Instead of wearing classy white wedding shoes, opt for velvet ones. Green velvet details on the table setting, menus, or on your bouquet is also a way to incorporate this lovely material.
For your Christmas wedding, opt for a red and white flower bouquet. You can add a few winter herbs – berries, pine branches, and silver leaves. This will make your bouquet as well as your bridesmaids’ bouquets absolutely stunning and winter-inspired.
Candy Cane Details
As candy cane is one of the most used Christmas motifs, include it as a detail on your wedding. You can use a candy cane in the cocktail made of vodka. You can be creative and make a gingerbread card box instead of a regular one. Use candy canes as well.
Reindeers on Tables
To get in a real holiday spirit, replace classic cardholders on tables or chairs with reindeers and other Santa’s helpers.
Holiday Spirits Inspired Table Setting
Red and green plaid, gold-painted candlesticks or bottles, and velvet details for your table setting – all these deco details will revive the holiday spirits and leave your guests speechless.
As one of the biggest winter motifs, wreaths should be used as a detail on your Christmas wedding. Decorate your chandeliers and ceilings with eucalyptus wreaths. Maybe you didn’t know, but wreaths are not only Christmas symbols – but they also represent a symbol of eternal love.
Hot Late-Night Treats
To feel the happy holidays, speak with the manager of the wedding venue if you can do some bonfire or if fire pits can be installed on the grounds while toasting marshmallows. Set up a hot chocolate or coffee bar where everyone can make their own hot drinks. Have peppermint stirrers prepared too to make their hot drinks more delicious.
In addition, have a food truck of comfort foods to energize your guests from too much alcohol and lots of dancing. You can prepare some finger foods, sweet pastry, or other snacks such as pizza, burgers, or pies for the late-night feast.
You maybe are going straight to your honeymoon or are staying after the wedding, but still, do not forget to include an awe-inspiring send-off in your wedding planning. As artificial snow enhances the tree branches, you can also have the guests throw fake snow, instead of rice, for a perfect wedding exit. Golden bells could also be an alternative. Attach them to customized ribbons, give them as wedding favors, and have the guests ring them as you step out from the venue.
