Holiday Wedding featuring christmas home decor
A Christmas Wedding can be very difficult to plan due to the amount of events that are taking place but if done correctly you can have a beautiful and romantic day. The first consideration has to be planning far in advance because of the busy season. Planning at least a year in advance will allow your guests to set aside your wedding day before anything else interferes. Make sure you also plan ahead for your venue to make sure that the day you chose is not already booked with a Christmas related event.
With the advanced planning out of the way you need to focus on what you want your Christmas wedding to look like. The best rule when deciding on the decor, flowers, invitations and the food is to take the time to look at what exemplifies Christmas. Using a palette of colors that are silver and white, silver and light blue, gold and cream, and variations of red, gold, and green will fit in perfectly with your theme. These colors are indicative of of snow covered hills and pine trees, of red bows on fresh cut pine wreaths and multicolored Christmas bulbs twinkling in the evening light.
When it comes to the decor bring in fresh cut pine boughs for centerpieces instead of costly out of season flowers. Consider large pillared candles with sprigs of holly, mistletoe, poinsettias in large vases and multi colored Christmas tree bulbs in elegant containers for additional features for your decor. Adding small elegant holiday touches will bring your Christmas themed wedding the perfect ambience. Depending on where you are located bring snow into the ceremony by having large ice sculptures or even a snow machine to create the winter feel.
The food you serve should reflect the winter season. Consider having decadent hot cocoa concoctions, mulled wine, eggnog or other signature winter cocktails for your guests to sample. Think a warm and tasty soup for a starter and move into other winter fare such as filet mignon or a traditional ham or turkey holiday meal with all the trimmings. The wedding cake can have a simple design with silver and light blue accents or you can decide to have a many tiered cake that looks like wrapped Christmas packages. No matter what when it comes to the food choices you can bring in all of the best flavors and feelings that the holidays have to offer.
The final ingredient to the perfect holiday wedding is the wedding dress. A traditional wedding dress will fit in well with the holiday wedding. However, going beyond traditional you can look at heavier fabrics and possibly fur trimmed capes and muffs to round out the winter look. Whatever you choose for your wedding attire looking at simple and elegant variations for a winter dress will add that special touch to your Christmas wedding.
