December is here, which means one thing, Christmas is coming. And for many brides-to-be, their Christmas themed wedding is only weeks away. So, as this time of year spreads joy and happiness, whether you’re counting down the days, or planning for a 2016 Christmas wedding, making the most of the festivity throughout your wedding promises to capture everything Christmas. And if you are stuck, here are some Yuletide wedding ideas:
If you want to avoid the traditional greens and reds associated with the season, try berry shades such as deep reds and purples interspersed with winter whites. Giving you a chic option that feels luxurious and festive.
Bring the outside, inside
In the UK, our seasonal weather is less than predictable, so if you are dreaming of a winter scene for your festive nuptials, bring the snow and everything else that represents winter, inside.
Spread Christmas cheer in every corner
A good table decoration is all in the details, so why hold back during the most decoration-friendly time of the year. Tiny Christmas hats to go on champagne flutes, or straws with flags detailed with personalised messages.
Using the wedding colours you have chosen for tree decorations, because having one is a must at your ceremony and venue. White, silvers, golds and berry shades are all classic and chic.
Eat, drink and be merry
Serve your guests a festive feast! Offer them mulled wine and hot spiced apple juice on arrival, with mini snacks to nibble on. A version of Christmas dinner is a natural choice, and it doesn’t have to be turkey, ending with Christmas pudding, mince pies, yule log and so many more dessert ideas.
Consider having Father Christmas for a visit, giving the children gifts to play with throughout the meal. Alternatively, try a chill-out room and played Christmas-themed DVDs to keep everyone happy.
The team at Fleur de Lys Bridal hope you all have a fantastic Christmas, and also a beautiful Christmas themed wedding; we can’t wait to see the pictures!
