The holiday season is a time for family and merriment, and it’s a beautiful time for a wedding. You’ll trade the summer sun for a winter wonderland, and you’ll love getting creative with your colors, flowers, and décor.
Making the Ceremony Beautiful with Color
The colors of Christmas and the New Year lend themselves beautifully to your floral arrangements and your official wedding colors. If you want your guests to feel like they’ve been transported to a winter wonderland, you’ll want to infuse your bouquets,centerpieces, and garlands with colors like white, silver, and frosty blue.
Or, you might think about a color combination like gold, green, and ivory, which looks incredible with flowers like roses and lilies, particularly when paired with evergreens and tapers. Imagine your wedding party’s bouquets filled with red carnations, ivory roses, and white spider mums.
Holiday Spice and Inspired Décor
You may infuse your wedding with as much or as little of the holiday spirit as you’d like, and there are some truly lovely ways to create a cozy reception, even if you’ve got 300 guests coming for the event. Place little bowls of sugarplums on your guests’ tables or serve hot chocolate and cappuccino at the bar alongside everyone’s favorite holiday mixed drinks.
A Christmas wedding is also the perfect time to get carried away in a horse-drawn sleigh or carriage. Why go with a limousine that everyone’s seen before when you can arrive at your reception in a carriage?
Celebrating Winter, Renewal, and the New Year
The summer solstice happens around the 22nd of December, and Christmas arrives a few days later. Although December usually features wintery temperatures, it’s actually the point at which the days begin to get just a little longer. Through blankets of snow, the excitement of the New Year ushers in the promise of spring, growth, and renewal.
Celebrate the start of your marriage and the beauty of the season with arrangements of holiday evergreens, pinecones, and roses. “Deck the Halls” of your wedding in hues of emerald green, and make your guests feel like they’ve come to a secret forest with woodland elves and sprites.
Start planning early for your holiday wedding, so you don’t miss out on your favorite venues and flowers, and so your guests are available for your big day. You’ll love getting married during the magic of the holiday season.
