It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The beautiful colors, the sparkling lights and décor, and that magical holiday spirit that further amplifies one of the happiest days of your life! Incorporating the essence of Christmas is an absolutely perfect way to carryout your nuptials — and we at Bridal Spectacular have a few great ideas on how you can transform your Christmas favorites into a gorgeous wedding theme everyone will love!
Enjoy, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone!
The Bridal Look
For the bridal gown, feature winter white with red accents. With such a magical time of the year, you equally want to incorporate that magic and colors into your look. Another option is to go for more of a winter theme and wear silvers and blues that are reminiscent of the first winter snowfall!
For accessories, show off that beautiful Christmas bling with crystal-embellished shoes, hairpiece and jewelry topped off with a bedazzled clutch. To keep warm, you can finalize your look with fur stoles and elbow-length gloves.
For flowers, think red, green and white. Include poinsettia flowers, white calla lilies, and red and white roses or carnations adorned with juniper branches, hypericum berries, pinecones, and silver accents for a truly enchanted wedding bouquet!
The Wedding Party
Outfit your husband-to-be in a stunning white suite or tux with red accents. Then have your wedding party wear beautiful long red dresses. Or, if you are featuring more of the winter look, have the guys wear blue accents and the bridesmaids can boast blue, silver or grey dresses. And don’t forget the fur stoles and elbow-length gloves to keep your ladies warm as well!
Christmas Themed Wedding Décor
Having a Christmas themed wedding provides you with limitless décor choices! For the ceremony, you can adorn your chairs with Christmas inspired covers, a red or white aisle runner and aisle pieces featuring ornaments and berries that match your exact wedding colors. Then, embellish your altar with twinkle lights, garlands, juniper branches and berries to complete the look.
For the reception, incorporate red, green and white for the table linens and chair covers. Surround the room with garlands, twinkle lights and even a Christmas tree. Then, decorate the tables with beautiful silver chargers and Christmas centerpieces that include the same type of flowers you selected for your bouquet in crystal or silver vases paired with ornaments, cranberries and floating candles.
Don’t Forget the Cake!
And finally for your cake, you can embellish it with ornaments, berries, poinsettias, pinecones and ribbon. Or, you can it one step take farther and transform your cake into a three-tiered gift box, an oversized Christmas tree ornament, or a stunning winter wonderland with silver frosting and snowflakes!
