Magical Christmas weddings are so in demand, and we can see why. If you’re getting married around the holiday season, there is no better time to do it than now. From the snow on the ground to twinkling lights and festive decorations, there’s just something about this time of year that makes it feel like a fairy tale come to life.
If you’re not sure where to start or what goes into planning a magical Christmas wedding, we’ve got you covered here. Consider these 5 helpful Christmas wedding ideas so you can design your perfect day.
1. Choose Your Colors
Colors play a vital role in a wedding, and the colors you use will set the theme for the event. The colors for your magical Christmas wedding can range from classic and traditional to elegant and unique. For a traditional feel, warm and inviting tones of gold or red are popular. For a more elegant and modern approach, choose sleek tones of bronze and icy blue. Silver and white are elegant colors for a winter wonderland feel. If you are looking for something unique, blues and purples with a hint of gold accent make for a surprisingly stunning color combination.
2. The Perfect Dress
Your perfect dress is undoubtedly the key feature in any wedding. With all eyes on you, you want to look stunning and feel like royalty. Bodices that sparkle and glisten with rhinestones, sequins, and jewels are classic but elegant for any gown. Styles for winter gowns feature longer sleeves, intricate layers, and warm wraps. Fabric choices range from traditional silk and tulle to a unique velvet. And of course, the alternative options for gown color—such as champagne or blush tones—are whimsical and romantic, while allowing you to stand out against a wintery white backdrop.
3. Beautiful Bouquet
Your bouquet allows you to be creative and incorporate your colors and theme into your attire. Snow white lilies, green ivy, and red roses are all elegant options for a traditional Christmas feel to your floral arrangement. For a woodsy bouquet, pinecones, acorns, berries, and eucalyptus are attractive options. Easily add ribbons and gold or silver accents to your bouquet for a magical touch.
4. Decorating the Venue
There is nothing like a magical Christmas wedding decor to bring out the true joy of this season.
The best part about these decorations is that they are effortless to find and use. From traditional, elegant touches of frosted pine trees, scented candles, and mistletoe to more modern ideas such as a glittering Christmas tree with a snowy backdrop, you can use these items in any way you want. Glittery snowflakes and crystal icicles are perfect for a wintery wonderland setting.
You can even get your Christmas spirit flowing by dressing up your venue with some old-fashioned holiday colors—from the tablecloths to the ornaments on the wall. And, of course, Christmas lights in traditional or soft white add to the atmosphere of the season.
5. Memorable Moments
Make your magical Christmas wedding memorable by arriving in a carriage or a sleigh. For a traditional Christmas theme, consider the fun of having an officiant or emcee dressed as Santa. A recognizable holiday figure will especially be popular if you have children present on your big day. A snow machine during your first dance adds a beautiful and romantic atmosphere. Rent reindeer or alpacas to add a whimsical element to your outdoor wedding photos.
