Holidays are definitely the best time of the year. Why not make them the most beautiful moment of your life with a holiday wedding? A wintery wedding is a perfect excuse to soak in the festive spirits, pop up the bubbly, and throw a memorable party.
There’s no need to get tacky, though, with red and green ugly sweaters or fake snow. Here are some pretty and chic ideas to use holiday magic without going overboard on your wedding day.
Custom Design the Invitation
Silver foil stamping on the red cards, greenery on the save-the-dates, and ribbons to tie the invitations are a few ideas to set the right tone for a holiday-themed wedding. Style the paper with ornaments, green/red colors, and Christmassy motifs. Jingle bells are also a fun addition.
Deck the Venue with Holiday Décor
Dress up the location with evergreens, vines, pine cones, persimmons, and more. Greenery is the obvious choice, but you may also go with the all-white décor. A white wreath at the door, crisp white table settings, and wintery white flowers never fail to create a breathtaking effect.
But, you can get a bit creative, too. Use garlands for lining the tent draping, pool, or tables. Add red accents in your white wonderland. Some sparkles and metallic accents will formalize the decorations.
Most importantly, use twinkle or string lights to rev up the mood. If you are planning an outside wedding, large bistro lights will make the entire venue glow like Christmas lights.
Holiday-Themed Table Settings
Holiday-themed table settings can be exciting in many ways. You can go for a traditional red and white palette or something in the plaid. Candlelit lanterns, seasonal flower arrangements, and garlands around the chargers are some ideas that you can incorporate into your reception tables.
And if you need a playful touch, use accents on the escort cards. You may place them in a tray of cranberries, or add a reindeer or Santa toy to each card. Custom-designed signature napkins will also take your holiday theme a notch higher.
Plan a Holiday Meal
Holiday weddings are the perfect reason to indulge your taste buds in sinful sugar cookies and warm treats. You don’t have to get traditional, though. Instead of choosing snowflake shapes, use a wedding ring cutout, and frosty white cookies.
Homemade bourbon pecan pie, lemon sandies, petit fours, and Christmas tree-shaped canapés are some items for a perfect wedding feast during the holiday season.
Get a pianist to play holiday music, get holiday-themed cocktails, and send off your guests with holiday treats. From boutonnieres to velvet ring pillow, paint everything in the festive fervor. For any help or guidance, Bella Honeymoons is just a call away!
