Wedding around Christmas? Why not!

If you're planning a winter wedding and you're a bride who loves all things Christmas, why not combine the two and have a fun and festive Christmas themed wedding?  

After all, it's the most wonderful time of the year!

There are so many cheap and cheerful Christmas wedding ideas that can turn your big day into a winter wonderland. Here's how to plan the perfect Christmas wedding without blowing your budget.

I'll give you my expert tips. Christmas is a magical time of year for a Wedding Reception and there are many ways that you can beat the weather, create a spectacular and budget wedding that will be long remembered.

Where to have the perfect Christmas wedding

I recommend a mountain lodge or country house for the perfect Christmas wedding, with plenty of trees and why not snow to add to the festive charm. Just don't forget about the extra travel time for you and your guests that will be needed. Often getting to remote wedding venues can take longer than usual, and that too during the winter months. Make sure the venue is well heated - preferably with a fireplace and Rustic, Boho Chic or Shabby Chic décor.

Everything for the perfect Christmas wedding

'This is the season to sparkle! Whether you prefer it with flashes of gold amidst a subtle burgundy and deep blue color scheme, or shimmering silver with leafy green, winter weddings are destined to be glittery.

Think about your venue when choosing colors for your Christmas wedding. If you're getting married in a country house full of marble, silver details will look extra special. If you choose to be in a rustic setting, it will look more than magical to have it decorated in gorgeous shades of burgundy and rose gold.

Remember that even if you don't spend much time outdoors, you're still connected to it through the windows. Make a note of which parts of the grounds are visible from your hall, then decorate them accordingly.

If you prefer a Boho Christmas theme, you can really get into the DIY (do-it-yourself) look of your decor. Pine cones, greenery and logs are a great way to decorate the place at a low cost. You can also place candles and hanging lanterns for a warm and cozy feel, or tall vases with different decorations. Add fairy lights and silver ribbon to give the whole Christmas wedding a winter wonderland feel.

Christmas wedding flowers

Add some festive sparkle to your wedding flowers by choosing from the vast amount of glittery accessories that can be found on any high street at this time of year. Also, add some seasonal touches to your floral decorations by placing fruit bowl with some red winter berries or poinsettias. Additionally, fir or eucalyptus leaves add a winter feel to wedding flowers without feeling too Christmassy.

Christmas wedding decorations

If there's ever an excuse for a lot of glitz, it's at a Christmas wedding. You can decorate your venue with everything from trinkets to lavish glitter - and it won't cost you a fortune!

In terms of Christmas wedding decor, candles are your trusty friend. However, be sure to check with the manager or owner first about the dangers candles can cause - there's always a compromise and a spectacular option, and Led candles are one of them. Put fairy lights on every available surface too.

And on the floral side of things, choose seasonal blooms to add a touch of festive cheer - cypress boughs, ivy, hypericum and poinsettias are some favorites we'd recommend.

You can also save money on your wedding decor by using things given to us by nature - pinecones and beautiful, unusual twigs for your Christmas wedding. These can be placed in large vases and used for gorgeous table decorations.  

For quick and cheap hanging decorations, get some white paper, some scissors and make some snowflake decorations like you did at school! Then add some finishing touches to your Christmas wedding with Christmas lights.

Christmas wedding souvenirs

Traditional gingerbread cookies are a great idea for Christmas wedding souvenirs - or you can give your guests personalised wedding souvenirs so they can take some Christmas cheer home with them.

Christmas wedding drinks

Why not appease your guests with a hot drink bar? Think hot chocolate or warm mulled wine. If you want the traditional welcome glass of champagne, why not add berries for festive cheer?

Winter wedding cakes

Winter weddings are all about style and sophistication. There are plenty of ways to realize this festive theme from modern metallic to old English berries incorporated into your wedding cake - or both. If you prefer biscuits, why not have a wedding cake alternative and opt for a gingerbread house!

However, the most important thing for any wedding remains the mood, and believe me - combined with Christmas, it evokes incredible emotions in the guests. Rest assured that a Christmas wedding will leave a very fond and cheerful memory in them! Contact us today to arrange your wedding too!
