A Christmas Wedding: For Or Against?

A Christmas Wedding: For Or Against?

With Christmas right around the corner, it's time to think about what you want in your stocking. Maybe a new set of sheets? Or maybe something even more special, like a wedding dress! If you want to go down the aisle during the holiday season, then this blog post is for you!

That is the most wonderful and magical time of the year so why not celebrate a wedding? If you're a holiday enthusiast, you might want to consider throwing a winter wedding close to Christmas.

If you still hesitate and think it's too cold or it's not the best idea to celebrate a wedding just before Christmas, believe us - there is something special about a December wedding.

We know it may be quite a challenge to organize a Christmas wedding but do not worry - we have come up with some cool and unique ideas that will certainly put you and all your guests in the holiday spirit. 

A December Wedding

The first and the best tip we can give you - don't be too much! Instead of adding tons of fake snow and coloring everything in red and green go with simple but elegant holiday decor. Twinkle Lights are a must. It's so romantic and oh soo Christmas. A great advantage is that it doesn't take too much money and time.

Nothing can bring in light, romance, and togetherness like candles do that.

Make invitations special. Your wedding invitations will be the first hint of your theme that your guests get so add an icy or festive design.

What do you think about the dress code? Ask guests to go for plenty of glitz, glamour, and sparkle but tell everyone that those Christmas jumpers are not on the menu.

If you plan a Christmas-themed wedding, consider decorating the Altar With Christmas Trees. Add some lights but again, do not overboard.

Serve special festive cocktails. Such flavors like eggnog, peppermint, and cranberry smell like Christmas.

Think very carefully about the color palette. Think twice before you decide on coloring everything in red and green. We would strongly recommend doing it up with metallic and neutral accents.

Have a lot of Jingle Bells! It is such a great idea to give everyone a jingle bell and have everyone ring the bell at the same time before toats begin.

Arrange for your DJ or band to have a wedding playlist full of Christmas classics. We don’t mean a whole five hours of them, but definitely a few classics dotted throughout.

We have already warned you about throwing too much fake snow, but still, it's the holiday season. And what is Christmas without snow? If snowflakes aren't in the forecast, make your own in the form of a confetti shower!

How to plan a Christmas Wedding

If you want to have a Christmas wedding, go ahead and do so! It may not be traditional but the sentiment of love is still there.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Wedding Day!
