Creating The Perfect Christmas Wedding

With Christmas just around the corner you might be thinking about putting an element of Christmas into your wedding, whether that’s in 2022, 2023 or beyond. There’s something in the air during the festive season and if done well, a Christmas themed wedding can be amazing.

Here are 22 ideas of how you can create a festive feel to your day.

1. Find a winter wedding venue

Find the perfect winter wedding venue for the style of your day. Remember that it will be cold, so if you’re thinking if something more outdoorsy such as a barn, you might want to invest in some heating.

2. Theme your wedding invitations Add a sprinkle of magic to your invites and stationery so that your guests know that there’s some festive fun during your celebrations.

3. Have festive hymns/songs/carols If you’re having your wedding in a church, why not opt for some traditional carols or Christmas hymns for the singing?

4. Seasonal flowers Choose flowers for bouquets and your wedding venue in the colours or Christmas and what’s available during this season. Think poinsettias, mistletoe, holly and lots of deep reds and foliage.

5. Metallic theme Silver, gold, bronze, copper – let the metallics do the talking.

6. Santa for the kids If you’ve got little ones at your day, why not include a little visit from the main man himself?

7. Reindeer Do you like animals? If so, why not get some elves and reindeer to show up on your day?

8. Wrapped up wedding favours Make your wedding favours a surprise by wrapping them up like you would gifts under a tree. You can use festive wrapping paper too or use brown paper and twine with a sprig of holly.

9. Christmas movie room Get everyone into the festive spirit by having a chill out room which plays Christmas films. Perfect!

10. Christmas party dress code Glitz, glamour, and sparkle, make the festive feel part of the day by getting all your guests AND you, to dress in Christmas Party attire? Think sequins, glitter, metallics and sparkle.

11. A photo wreath Have a festive take on a photo booth and hang an extra-large wreath up so people can stand behind it and have a photo taken for the perfect festive frame.

12. Christmas trees Use Christmas trees! You can get many types of miniature Christmas trees from supermarkets at this time of year so why not use those as centre pieces?

13. Blankets Make sure to wrap up warm and provide lots of snuggly blankets so you and your guests can keep cosy

14. Christmas drinks Yep, that’s right, get that mulled wine and baileys out! Cheers!

16. Have a Christmas Dinner as your wedding breakfast Roast potatoes, turkey and all the trimmings – YES PLEASE

17. A fire pit Keep warm well into the night with a festive firepit

18. A letter to Santa station If you’re wedding is in early December, why not do a letter to Santa station for the little ones with a little post-box so they can post them to the North Pole?

19. Decorate gingerbread house as a guest book A different take on a guest book, which let’s be honest, no one ever goes back to read. So why not have a large gingerbread house and let all your guests decorate it throughout the day. Take some time looking at it when it’s all done and have some awesome photos with it, before dismantling it and serving it at your evening do.
