A horse-drawn sleigh or carriage, or a tinsel decorated car with Father Christmas as your driver could transport you to your venue and at the end of the ceremony when you exit as newlyweds why not have your guests ring miniature bells rather than shower you with confetti. If youre having a church wedding then you could also have the bells in the tower playing. Christmas carols can be played whilst the guests wait for your arrival and during intervals or why not sing them together during the service. Then theres the first dance song, so many Christmas chart tunes from over the years to choose from!
Venues for this time of year will get booked up quickly, so plan well in advance to guarantee you secure your perfect venue for where you wish your wedding to take place. Save the date cards are a good idea with this time of year being busy for family and friends. By using blank Christmas cards you could easily make these and your invitations yourself.
It is likely that the venue will already be decorated for the festive season thus saving you time and money. Ask what decorations they will be using or if you can visit the year before prior to your own wedding to see how it has been set up. This will give you a good starting ground. Candles placed on mirrors are fabulous centre features or use large vases and fill them with colour coordinated Christmas decorations. Christmas crackers, mini stocking or baubles could be your table place settings. An ice sculpture would make a dramatic feature at the venue whilst holly bush trees, hung mistletoe or pots of poinsettias will help bring the outdoors inside. Of course you cant not have a Christmas tree decorated in your wedding theme colours, which your wedding gifts could be left under. An ideal wedding favour is a personalised bauble or candle with your names and wedding date inscribed on it. Alternatively mini chocolate Santas or filled little stockings would go down a treat. A Santas grotto may be worth considering if there are going to be a large number of children at your wedding. If there is an open fire at your venue do insist that it is started especially if it is in a separate area. This will give your guests somewhere to escape to and relax.
You could serve a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings as your wedding breakfast and have a classic fruit Christmas cake as your wedding cake decorated with holly, evergreen or Christmas ornaments of your choice. Dont forget the mulled wine as your toasting drink!
Your groom could wear an extravagant Christmas waistcoat or tie and have a poinsettia or a piece of mistletoe as his buttonhole, whilst your bridesmaids could be in white dresses with coordinating sashes with matching accessories to yours. They could decorate the aisle with fake snow or glitter snowflakes or stars and carry candles rather than a posy.
