Wedding at Christmas Colors
To decorate your entire wedding you will need a basic color palette. For Christmas the red, green, olive, gold, silver and gray are perfect. Try to combine them in invitations, centerpieces, ornaments and souvenirs. Thus, they will shout Christmas without needing more explanations.
They are in charge of telling your guests what your event will be like. Therefore, you have to put a lot of effort into them. Craft-type papers, green and red colors, with gold details and cursive typography, are excellent exponents of Christmas.
You can also add items such as snowflakes, poinsettias, golden or silver bows and all the elements that remind you of the date.
Decoration for weddings at Christmas
You need poinsettia flowers, dried pineapples, olive branches and lots of green foliage. You can place bouquets with these combinations as centerpieces. Garlands and mistletoe can also decorate each space. Also, if you add scented candles you can create a much more welcoming effect.
Hanging garlands are also a very good option so do not leave them out.
If you really love Christmas, you can not stop placing a Christmas tree to decorate your wedding. In it they can place spheres of paper in which the guests can give their good wishes.
If we think of Christmas decoration, the color that will come to our mind the fastest is red . But there are more colors you can use (in small doses, otherwise it will be too heavy), as are the gold and silver , festive tones par excellence that will give the perfect touch to your Christmas wedding. How to use them? Very simple, to incorporate these tonalities to your Christmas wedding decoration, we suggest you do it for example, through a centerpiece of flowers, candles (they will give the warm touch that this Christmas celebration needs), or even in a big way with a tablecloth.
The sweets, essential
In addition to the traditional wedding cake (which may have some Christmas details such as red fruits), you can offer your guests a kind of candy bar (very fashionable at weddings today), but with typically Christmas sweets like nougat , marzipan, gingerbread cookies, or the roscón de reyes …
Gifts for the guests
If decorating your wedding to the Christmas style seems too much or you want to further enhance the spirit of these dates, the traditional gifts to the guests can also be a great way to do it. Our advice? Give something to your guests that they can use to decorate their house at Christmas, as decorations for the tree, for example. Simple, practical, and very original!
The little details
While it is true that we decorated our wedding at Christmas based on the tonalities of the time, as we have said before, it is fundamental, but small details are not less important. For example, a mini Christmas tree will give the table the festive touch, but also the pineapples or a tiny golden reindeer like the one in the photo , adorable! In addition, another option is to use red Christmas balls (or any shade of the time) to organize the seat plan, decorate the chairs with Santa Claus hats, or even discreet napkin rings with Christmas motifs if you want a slightly more discreet decoration . You can also use bows for chairs, star-shaped ornaments, old gold cutlery, pineapples as a table ornament, or snowflakes.
Of course, traditional Christmas music such as Christmas carols can not miss if you are going to celebrate your wedding at this time of year. It is not recommended that this music be played during the entire ceremony, only until the moment of dancing.
Another good idea to decorate your wedding at Christmas is to do it in the purest Nordic style and with rustic touches, a decoration that reminds a lot of the Christmas season but without being the typical one we are used to seeing. If you want to be even more original, we suggest you decorate your wedding by inspiring yourself in the image above. Using wooden tables without tablecloth. What do you think? In addition, to give it the most Christmas touch proper, you can always add some golden glasses (one of the star tones of Christmas)
Catering with Christmas products, do not miss
Apart from the decoration, there is another idea that you can put into practice to make your wedding even more special on these important dates of the year and it is through catering. Our advice? Offer the guests a typical drink of the time such as hot chocolate , or cocktails with red fruits.
Flowers of the time
What would a wedding be without its flower ornaments? Never miss a wedding and if yours is a Christmas ceremony, bet on typically Christmas flowers adorning the place of the ceremony (they can be as table decorations). Some of those flowers we are referring to are the poinsettias and the traditional mistletoe . The combination of candles and holly branches is also a great idea to decorate your Christmas wedding.
To get the cozy atmosphere that all Christmas decoration requires (and more in the case of a wedding) a good idea is that you choose a place for the ceremony that has a fireplace, something very Christmas. But it can also help to place garlands of lights that give the touch even more festive. Of course, when it comes to a Christmas wedding, you can not miss the classic tree.
In the post look of the bride and groom for a winter wedding we suggest which fabrics and styles are best at this time of year. But if you also add the joy of Christmas, you can use accessories with the colors mentioned above.
The groom may wear a tie, handkerchief, socks or a plaid vest. The bride can use a scarf or details like bows made also of plaid. It is not that they dress up as Christmas elves, but that they seek to give a different and Christmas touch to their look.
Christmas lends itself to give beautiful Christmas details. Decorative pineapples, sweets, boots full of sweets, decorative spheres with details of your wedding, a craft card; They are perfect details to show your guests the appreciation they have for them. They can also give something useful: scarves, gloves and hats will be indicated.
