If you have always dreamed of having a winter wedding then why not think about having a Christmas themed spectacular. By opting to have Christmas as your theme you instantly have your colour scheme and a vast of majority of the decorations for your venue sorted which in turn assists with the whole planning and preparation.
Traditionally reds and greens are the colour palette for Christmas, however wintery pastels of pale pinks and icy blues with silver, or golds and browns and rich colours such as purples, burgundies and navy can all look equally striking and fit in with the season in which you are getting married. To create a picturesque winter wonderland scene then white and silver will help create a beautiful setting.
Venues for this time of year will get booked up quickly, so plan well in advance to guarantee you secure your perfect venue for where you wish your wedding to take place. Save the date cards are a good idea with this time of year being busy for family and friends. By using blank Christmas cards you could easily make these and your invitations yourself.
A horse-drawn sleigh or carriage, or a tinsel decorated car with Father Christmas as your driver could transport you to your venue and at the end of the ceremony when you exit as newlyweds why not have your guests ring miniature bells rather than shower you with confetti. If you’re having a church wedding then you could also have the bells in the tower playing. Christmas carols can be played whilst the guests wait for your arrival and during intervals or why not sing them together during the service. Then there’s the first dance song, so many Christmas chart tunes from over the years to choose from!
