Christmas: Tis’ the Season to Say “I Do”

winter wedding

Silver and gold, gold and silver; did you know that Christmas is one of the most popular wedding seasons? Think about it, what could be more spectacular than saying “I do” during the most magical time of year? The traditional backdrop of twinkling lights and snowy boughs of evergreens provide the perfect setting for a celebration of love.  Here are few ideas to help you create the perfect Christmas themed wedding.

Think simple! If you like a sophisticated style but want to include some of the traditional Christmas elements, try using crisp white linens for table cloths paired with silver or gold plates and utensils. Add centerpieces of fresh evergreen with tall candles to give off that romantic glow. Complete the look by adding one or two ornaments to reflect the candlelight and bring an element of color just as if it were a real Christmas tree.

If you want to add even more of a traditional look to this ensemble (and let’s be honest- there can never be TOO much Christmas) pair the white table linen with a second overlapping linen of a contrasting color. Think gold, silver, green or even a plaid mix of all three.

Lighting is important when you’re setting the mood for a romantic evening and a celebration of newly said vows. Christmas lights can be the perfect tools to achieve this look! Use them to decorate pillars, plants, and even buffet tables.  There are many ways to incorporate lights when using an outdoor tent.  Our talented team loves to string them above the dance floor for spotlight dances.  Twinkling lights are a great way to create a fun and energetic atmosphere.

Wedding favors are often an overlooked aspect.  Get creative with gifts for the guests and wedding party whenever possible.  A handmade ornament personalized by the bride and groom or a box of sweet treats such as frosted sugar cookies can really add a personal element to the reception.  Not feeling crafty?  We have a huge assortment of personalized options that would compliment your theme.
