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!
Traditionally reds and greens are the colour palette for Christmas, however wintery pastels of pale pinks and icy blues with silver, or golds and browns and rich colours such as purples, burgundies and navy can all look equally striking and fit in with the season in which you are getting married. To create a picturesque winter wonderland scene then white and silver will help create a beautiful setting.
As a Christmas themed Bride you could opt to wear a silvery white wedding dress, accessorised with a faux fur bolero or wrap, alternatively (and to keep you extra toasty!) why not go for a cloak or a cape in a complimenting colour way. A fur hand muff will help stop your fingers turning blue and keep off the chill during outdoor photographs. Your bouquet could consist of Christmassy flowers and foliage such as poinsettias, mistletoe, holly and ivy or pinecones amongst the more classic flowers such as carnations, lilies or roses.
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.

Hi guys, it’s Alejandra. And this blog is coming to you guys a little bit early. I know it’s like three days before Christmas but I wanted to share with you guys two quick and easy and cost-effective tips for how to store all of your Christmas ornaments during the year so there is no damage, nothing broken and nothing gets destroyed while it’s in the storage and everything is intact for the following holiday season.
So, most people don’t take down their Christmas decorations until like maybe January. I usually take them down first week in January because I’m done with Christmas and I’ve seen them for like a month and a half now and it’s just time to start the New Year, start fresh, and get the house back to normal. So with that said, there are two things I’m going to share with you guys today. And the first thing is I want to tell you guys how to store your large bulb ornaments without having to go out and buy an ornament organizer. And to be completely honest, like you don’t need to buy an ornament organizer. You can totally make one yourself or figure out how to reuse something so you can just save some money. So what I do for these ornaments is I use an apple container from Costco. So this is just like a container that apples come in when you buy them at Costco. It stores 12 apples and it like clicks shut just like that. And I just put all the large ornaments inside of one of the holes just like that and it fits perfectly like it’s the same size as an apple. It’s a little bit smaller. And I store the hook with the ornament. If the hook doesn’t fit because maybe it’s like a little bulky or it sticks out or something, I’ll just take the hook off and put it inside of a little Ziploc bag and then keep it inside of here. But the hook fits fine in here. So I’ll put the ornament in and I’ll store 12 in here and then I’ll just click them shut and I’ll just store this apple cartoon with 12 ornaments inside of a storage box or a moving box or whatever bin or basket I have. And then I’ll just put it wherever I store all of my holiday decorations. OK. So I use an apple cartoon for large ornaments and then I use a – well first, let me show you what it is. So a lot of people have small ornaments like this. I have a lot of them in my tree. I use like – I could use the apple cartoon container to store these small ones inside of here but I think it will just waste a lot of space. And when it comes to organizing, you want to maximize your space and not waste any space at all. So the apple cartoon container is a waste of space for these small ones. Instead, I like to use an egg cartoon just like this like what you get at a grocery store. And again, they fit really perfectly inside. Do you see that? And some of the hooks kind of stick up inside of here, I don’t know. I think it’s fine leaving them on though. And then I’ll just close it and all of your small ornaments are now inside of an egg cartoon. So again, you don’t have to run to the store and spend more money after you already spent so much money during Christmas just by – instead, you can just reuse two things that most people would just recycle or throw away, which is an apple cartoon container and an egg cartoon container, So, that’s just two things to consider when you are taking down all your Christmas decorations in the next few weeks. I hope you guys are having a merry Christmas and I will see you soon. Bye! 2.
