Who doesn’t love this time of the year? Also, who does not love weddings? Having them both together is truly the best! We have some great tips for you on how you can have the perfect holiday themed wedding! To begin, you must create a theme. Try to start with your invitations because this is going to be the first glimpse your guests will get of your wedding. We have created a great pinterest board to give you a place to find some great inspiration!
Once you have decided on your theme, try to make sure you dress your bridesmaids appropriately. This is the perfect way to incorporate darker colors like blacks, plums, and blood red. You can do the same with your décor or you can always go with the classic “winter wonderland” theme. For example, we have seen many brides incorporate white branches through the aisle. To keep the winter wonderland theme, you can simply cover your chairs with white silk and have a plain white aisle. The beauty of this theme is that you can use white flowers like white roses and hydrangeas, which are cheaper flower varieties than the rest!
For your reception, there are a variety of ways to keep your holiday theme fun and creative. Before your guests arrive into the ballroom, you can make the place cards be a statement station. For actual center pieces, incorporating dark red and black is extremely seductive and romantic. Here are some of our favorite pieces. We even shot a “fire and ice” themed table top with Donnie Brown!
Also, to keep the new year in mind by having your colors revolve around metallics and golds. We have also seen many brides stick with all white and incorporate just one color like blue or purple through lighting.
Finally, a great way to integrate that holiday theme is through wedding favors! We have seen some brides who give their guests individual ornaments like this:
or edible favors like gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies shaped like snowmen, or even cake balls! We have even seen brides give away brand new planners for the new year!
