‘Tis the season to get married! Tie the knot during this festive time of year for amazing photos and wonderful memories. Here are our five favorite reasons to say I Do to a Christmas wedding!
Cute Proposal Photos & Save the Dates
From ornaments etched with your wedding date to heart-shaped candy canes, the tried and true ways to announce your wedding and personalize the photos are totally heartwarming! Kissing under the mistletoe, wrapping up in blankets, playing outside in the snow, and posing in front of your church are just a few of the romantic and sweet ways to create that extra-special holiday ambiance.
Bright Centerpieces & Florals
The ways to incorporate wintery touches and seasonal cheer are practically endless. You can use mini Christmas trees, sprigs of holly, or candles to create rustic centerpieces. Strung lights and a glowing fire are totally in place. Evergreen garlands with beautiful red and white poinsettias add a lovely touch of romance. For your bouquet, a green, white, brown, and red color scheme gives you the freedom to select anything from pinecones and succulents to pure red roses or mistletoe.
There are so many cute ways to commemorate your wedding that beautifully express the joy and spirit of the Christmas season! Give your guests photo ornaments, gloves, snow globes, or holiday mugs to take away from the celebration—they can use them at home! You can also keep friends occupied with activities like decorating cards or making ornaments while you’re taking your family portraits.
Even though most winter wedding ceremonies and receptions are held indoors, this is the perfect opportunity to indulge in warm comfort foods. Hot drinks, seasonal favorites, peppermint goodies, and rich desserts will keep your guests feeling cozy. Add some fun to your reception with a hot cocoa bar, or let guests customize their cookies! For healthy but hearty options, consider vegan casseroles, mixed nuts, or berry pies.
Snazzy Bridal Accessories
The holiday season creates the perfect atmosphere for a bit of upscale sparkle and a pop of color. Warm metallics and shimmering sequins are trending this year—Christmas is the perfect time to incorporate a dash of gold, silver, red, or green into your look.
Elegant jewelry, an eye-catching bridal belt, a shimmering headpiece, and a beautiful veil will help you create a totally glamorous ensemble. Gold headpieces and intricately beaded belts have been especially popular—check out our Spring 2016 Collection for a few options!
Want a more rustic look? A pretty plaid shawl and brightly-colored shoes will add a touch of holiday cheer. If you’re headed out to a wintery wonderland, consider a cape or faux fur wrap! Check out our Pinterest boards for more fabulous holiday style inspiration.
