When you think ‘wedding’ the season that most often springs to mind is of course summer. However, winter weddings, and in particular festive or Christmas weddings are popular amongst many brides for a number of reasons.
Perhaps it’s the pure magic of the season, or the sparkle a beautiful layer of winter frost gives everything. Or maybe you’ve always dreamed of a snowy wedding? It could simply be that an out of season wedding means your budget goes much further, enabling all those extra touches that might otherwise be out of reach with a mid summer wedding. Whatever your motivation, a Christmas wedding can be the most wonderful of occasions and here we share with you some inspiration we’ve curated from that incredible place we all know as Pinterest!
Christmas Wedding Bouquets
Why not consider a mistletoe bridal bouquet for your Christmas wedding?! There’s not many other times you could get away with it 😉 Looking for something a little more traditional? Deep red roses with some seasonal greenery can result in an incredibly dramatic effect. If you’re steering away from the traditional red of the season, then something like this whimsical looking, silver seasonal bouquet could be right up your street.
Christmas Wedding Cake
When it comes to the wedding cake for your Christmas wedding, you can go as pared back or as dramatic as your style allows. We’re loving this simple, elegant, white two tiered cake with just a hint of winter touches from nature. And this stunning three tier cake in all its festive glory with gold drip icing to die for! When it comes to flavours you could go all out traditional with a rich fruit cake, or the more modern alternative – chocolate… maybe even a touch of orange to give another nod to the season.
Place Settings for you Christmas Wedding
The amazing thing about Christmas weddings is that you can have as much or as little of the festive touches as you’re comfortable with. For a more pared back affair we love these little nods to the season in the candy cane place name and also these incredible mini wreaths!
Christmas Wedding Favours
Candy cane’s also make lovely little Christmas wedding favours. As do these beautiful baubles or these most adorable little mini Christmas trees!
Christmas Wedding Details
Who knew you could get snow like confetti??!! This alone is surely reason enough to start planning a Christmas wedding! And we love this bauble alternative to the traditional guest book. Each year you decorate your tree with these wishes full of love from your family and friends will take you straight back to the magical day.
The opportunity for spectacular detail in a Christmas wedding really is endless. With scope for more twinkly fairy lights or candles than your wildest fairytale dream could conjure up … to the most beautiful, seasonal crowns for your mini maids… we think Christmas weddings are most definitely the way forward 😉
