Christmas is truly the most magical time of year, so what better time to get married? If you’re planning a Christmas wedding, this year or next, these Christmassy ideas will get your thought process flowing.
The first step to having a Christmas themed wedding is to ensure your wedding location is super magical and romantic. Castles and old style hotels are ideal if they suit your taste and budget. If not, pick a location that works for you but that you can make some decoration adjustments to.
Your wedding decorations will really make sure your wedding is extra Christmassy. Ask your venue in advance if you are able to decorate it with Christmas decorations. They may have Christmas decorations themselves so make sure they are to your taste, or that you can change them if not. Think stockings hanging by the fire, Christmas trees in every corner, and lights everywhere.
Your invitations are the first glimpse of your wedding that your guests will get. If you are having a Christmas wedding, why don’t you send out Christmas cards instead of traditional invites? It will get your guests really excited and set the tone from the start.
When you’re thinking of the best ways to entertain your guests, make sure to keep your theme in mind. Christmas music is a really easy way to get your theme across and your guests in a good mood. If you want to be a little extra, you could even hire out a Santa Claus to hand out wedding favours. Bonus – He will look great in your photographs.
One of the best parts of Christmas is all of the amazing food. Your guests will be expecting traditional Christmas foods if you’re having a Christmas wedding. A roast would make for the perfect main course, with mince pies, puddings, and Christmas cake for dessert. If you were looking for something a bit more fancy, ask your caterer to put a classy spin on it.
