The holidays are one of the most magical times of the year. Everything is decorated in lights and holiday décor and people tend to be merrier and more festive. For some couples, it’s the perfect time of year to get tie the know because of the festive mood and the intimate atmosphere. Here are 10 ways to make your holiday wedding the magical moment you’ve always dreamed of because it is the season to be married.
Holiday Color Scheme
When you’re getting married around the holidays, the first and easiest way to tie in the holidays is to use Christmas colors as your color scheme. Embrace the red, green, and gold to create the perfect Christmas aesthetic.
Between Christmas trees, wreathes, tinsel, Christmas lights, candles, mistletoe, reindeer, and more, there is so much that you can include to decorate your venue to become the central place for guests to be merry and bright. Even adding a Christmas tree in the corner can bring the holiday spirit into a room. Or you can climb to the rooftop and decorate the ceiling with hundreds of twinkling Christmas lights. Maybe you hang wreathes or Christmas bows from the backs of each chair. No matter what you decide, there are so many ways to capture the Christmas spirit through easy Christmas décor.
Christmas Themed Signage
Whether you decorate your sign with holiday florals or tie in a creative holiday phrase, guests will love the added Christmas décor. You can even include Christmas themed phrases such as “Tis the Season to be Married,” “All you need is love and cookies,” “Eat, Drink, and Be Married,” or “And to all a good night.” Guests will love the holiday spirit and the festive creativity.
Mistletoe and Holly
Using holiday florals to decorate your wedding space is one of the best and easiest ways to incorporate the holidays! Ask your florist about option including mistletoe, holly, pinecones, fresh pine, and red roses. It’ll add the perfect details to your holiday aesthetic.
Ornament Guest Book
Have guests help you decorate your first Christmas tree as a couple by having them sign ornaments. Buy plain ornaments and allow guests to sign them as your guest book. Just make sure that there’s a bare tree next to the table so guests can hang their ornaments once they’re done!
Gift Tag Escort Cards
Be creative with your holiday themed escort cards! You can decorate them with beautiful pictures of holly berries and greenery or consider making your escort cards into the shape of gift tags. This’ll add a unique aspect to your holiday wedding.
We all love the traditional Pittsburgh cookie table, now add Christmas! Incorporate Christmas cookies into your cookie table to add that extra holiday cheer that all your guests will love.
You can also create a Christmas wedding cake that’ll wow guests as they enter your reception space. Whether you have a red-velvet flavored cake, decorate your cake with fresh holly berries, pinecones, and pine, or top it with a Christmas tree, the cake is one of the best ways to tie in your holiday theme.
Hot Chocolate Bar
It’s December, it’s cold, and all people want to do is stay inside and drink some hot chocolate. Give your guests the opportunity to warm up with a hot chocolate bar. Give them the option to add marshmallows, whipped cream, or candy canes to their drink and watch as they warm up and embrace the holiday spirit.
Help your guests get even more into the holiday festivities with some Christmas cocktails. Whether you include “The Merry Gentleman” or “St. Nick’s Tonic” these merry mashups will certainly add to the Christmas cheer.
As if guests haven’t gotten enough holiday magic from your Christmas wedding, send them home with a holiday themed favor. You can give them Christmas cookies, peppermint bark, chocolate, or an ornament with your names and wedding date. It’s the perfect way to thank guests for being part of your magical moment.
