Before you go all out with traditional green and red for your Christmas wedding, we suggest picking a different holiday hue and upgrading it with metallic and neutral accents.
Give your guests a gift they will actually want to keep, like pretty glass ornaments with their names written beautifully.
Hang String Lights
Make your big day feel magical with an overabundance of twinkle lights. It’s one of our favorite Christmas wedding ideas because it creates a romantic atmosphere! Further, it makes a big impact without breaking the bank.
Make It Snow
Snowflakes aren’t in the forecast? No problem! Make your own with a confetti shower or faux snow!
Serve Festive Cocktails
A Christmas-themed wedding wouldn’t be complete without festive beverages, like cranberry, eggnog, and peppermint.
Set the Table
Decorate your Christmas table in an unexpected way, such as adding a wreath around each plate. It certainly makes the meal the center of attention!
Set Up a Holiday Bar
One of our favorite Christmas wedding ideas is a self-serve tasting bar where guests can create their own cocktails.
TIP: Add bar snacks to get the party started, like popcorn with glazed pistachios!
