If you’re like most, you’ll think that Christmas is the most magical and wonderful time of the year, and who wouldn’t want a wedding surrounded by all of the festivity and cheer that comes during the Christmas period? A problem that you may face is trying to make your wedding even more magical so that you, your partner, and all of your guests have a tantalisingly beautiful day that’s full of love and festivities. So, we’ve got some tips on how to pull off a wedding at Christmas time for you to check out!
Fairy lights are a must
When the word Christmas is mentioned, it’s likely that one of the first things that comes to mind are all of the magical fairy lights that you see everywhere. That’s why, to really add an exciting and magical ambience to your wedding, it’s a good idea to have a plethora of fairy lights. They are really inexpensive to buy these days, and can be reused over and over! Ask your venue if you’re able to put up some fairy lights to make your wedding more fairytale-like.
For an extra, you could consider adding battery powered LED lights to your bouquet so that you dazzle even more when you’re walking down the aisle!
Match the decor with your rings!
It can be difficult to think of a theme when you’re planning a wedding around Christmas time. Even though Christmas is a great theme to go with, you may want to veer away from it slightly to keep the magic alive. An unusual yet brilliant idea is to match the decor with your wedding rings. So, if you and your partner have GIA certified diamond engagement rings, you could match the decor with diamonds. If you have golden wedding rings, you could use your main theme colour as gold. Let’s face it, anything glittery and shiny is going to tie in perfectly with the time of year.
Turn wedding favours into Christmas gifts
If you’ve been to a few weddings you may have noticed that the wedding favours are often a detail that’s different with each wedding. It’s a great way to add individuality to your wedding! Why not, instead of picking the same favour for everyone, take the opportunity to use your wedding favours as your Christmas gifts? While they may be opening their gifts early, it’s a fantastic way of standing out from the crowd.
Consider a set for your wedding photos
Finally, having a wedding during the festive season calls for some spectacular photos. It’s likely to be cold outside, so why not have a set for your wedding photos that includes fake snow, icicles, sleighs, and generally anything that will bring the festive cheer back! You’ll find that years from your wedding you’ll look back and relive the magic every Christmas!
