25 Fun & Festive Christmas Wedding Ideas
If you are having a December wedding then one of the first decisions you will have to make is whether to embrace the christmas season for your wedding or do something completely different and unrelated. But, if you have decided to have a full on christmas wedding then we have lots of great ideas to help you plan.
1. Christmas Decorations
Fill your venue with christmas cheer by using traditional decorations and seasonal greenery like holly and pine cones.
2. Christmas Wedding Stationery
Theming your wedding stationery around your christmas wedding is the perfect accompaniment for your wedding day. These designs from Foxglove and Black are to die for !
3. Use Christmas Carols During Your Ceremony
If you are planning on having music during your ceremony, then why not have everyone singing christmas carols to make it feel festive ?
4. Themed Drinks Reception
Mulled wine or spiced cider is perfect at this time of year, especially if it is cold outside when having photos taken.
5. Christmas Stockings For The Bridal Party
If the venue has a fireplace, why not place your thank you gifts to the wedding party in stockings and hang them above it ?
6. Christmas or Winter Themed Favours
Place small gifts for all your guests under the tree wrapped like Christmas presents, or make festive themed favours like these little reindeer food sacks to place your gift in.
7. Seasonal Table Names
How about naming your tables after Santas' reindeer or christmas carols ?
8. The Scent of Christmas
If your wedding venue allows, place christmas scented candles around, if not pine centre pieces and mulled wine, or pine cones and dried fruit slices will give that perfect scent of christmas to get everyone in the festive spirit.
The Rhubarb Candle Co make some amazing scents which are a perfect match for Christmas
9. Dress Code For A Christmas Wedding
Think glitzy dresses, christmas jumpers, sparkle and glamour to get everyone feeling the party mood.
10. Winter Inspired Wedding Cake
There are so many ways you can decorate your wedding cake to match the season and your colour scheme.
11. Winter Bridal Bouquet
With deep reds, holly and berries you can have the perfect bouquet to match the season.
12. Winter Floral/Botanic Decorations
Vibrant green pine or holly together with deep reds can brighten up the dullest of days.
13. Winter Buttonholes
We love these buttonholes, so different to the standard carnation that many go with.
14. Winter Wedding Dress
A burgundy velvet wedding dress like mine was perfect for our winter wedding, I was lovely and warm all day long, and if you have deep red and green bridesmaid dresses as well your wedding party will be a wonderful splash of colour.
15. Christmas market theme for food tables
Why not take inspiration from christmas markets for your food and how you present it ?
16. Romantic Mistletoe
It's christmas and not that you need an excuse to kiss your new husband or wife, but what better place to kiss than under the mistletoe ?
17. Mailbox For Santa
Instead of a standard mailbox or basket for all those wedding cards, why not have a santa mail inspired one ?
18. Christmas Wreath For The Main Entrance
What better way to welcome your guests to your wedding venue than with a christmas wreath on the front entrance ? These beautiful wreath kits come from Lupieloo Creations
and can be matched to your colour scheme.
19. Santa For The Children
If you are planning on having children at your wedding, how about hiring someone to play Santa for them, or even get a friend or family member to dress up to make their day.
20. Toasted Marshmallows For The Evening
Open log fires or even outdoor fire pits are great for warming everyone up and you can always have toasted marshmallows as well, a great hit with children both young and old.
21. Hot Chocolate Bar
It's cold outside, what could be more comforting than a hot chocolate bar with all the trimmings ?
22. Romantic Candlelight
Nothing says romance and christmas like candlelight. If your wedding venue does not allow naked flames then you can get some great artificial candles these days.
23. Mini Christmas Tree Table Centre pieces
The perfect little touch of christmas for your wedding day, and they will make great christmas decorations for years to come as well.
24. Christmas Cookies As Wedding Favours
Who doesn't love a christmas cookie ? These ones from Mel's Cakes and Bakes are perfect.
25. Christmas Wedding Bunting
Vikki from Your wedding Friend says - "if you don’t want to go full on Christmas styling then set aside one area as a mini grotto to give people the opportunity to get their Christmas on. My bunting is the perfect size for a Christmassy corner or to dress a country house mantlepiece." You can find her bunting kits here
