Top Tips for Planning a Christmas Wedding
- Food & Drink
We love food! I mean who doesn’t right? This is why it is so important to get the food right for your Christmas wedding. Have different traditional Christmas items, along with Christmas decorated foods are crucial for your guests. Make sure that the wedding cake is has a Christmas design to it to add to the overall wedding theme. You could also offer your guests some mulled wine or eggnog at the reception to really create that warm and cosy atmosphere.
- Table Setting
Confetti is a great way to add some sparkle to your wedding. We recommend red rose petals. These are fabulous against a brides dress and add to the festive theme. The red petals also add an instant romantic feel to your wedding! Fake snow is another addition that you can add to your wedding. Tea lights and sprayed white acorns are two simple items that you can use to dress up a table. They maybe simple, however they look really well and create that white winter feel, especially with the snow and rose petals.
- Colour Scheme
The colour scheme is such an important aspect of your wedding to get right. PLANIT recommends that you use different berry shades of red and purple. This will add a unique and simplistic look to your Christmas wedding, while also creating a sense of warmth throughout the room.
- Christmas baubles
Christmas baubles are so versatile and can really create such a magical aspect to your wedding. We recommend that you have some hanging from the ceiling and some in vases on tables. They can be clear in colour or different shades of red to go along with the colour scheme. The baubles can also be put on any Christmas trees that are placed around the venue. The baubles can also have different dimensions. This will add some character to your wedding.
- Christmas Children’s Corner
For your wedding it is important that you provide entertainment for the children. We recommend that you have a separate area with things such as pin the tail on Rudolph or decorate a Christmas cookie or Christmas bauble. Another idea is to have a Santa letterbox. Children can design and decorate letters to put in the box for Santa. Finally, Christmas karaoke or a Christmas movie is a great way to keep children entertained and busy from the wedding.
