Can you believe it is only a month until Christmas?! Before we know it, we’ll be Christmas shopping, organising the family party, prepping the Turkey and decorating the tree ready for the festivities. How the year flies by!
Spring and Summer are popular times for weddings, however Winter weddings with festive themes are currently very on-trend. It’s true that Christmas is a great time of the year for weddings! So, as a company specialising in event dressing for weddings and parties, we would like to share our top tips for creating traditional festive wedding décor. Think warm seasonal colours, whimsical wreaths and festive flowers!
The first thing that you have to think about when planning a festive themed wedding, is the colour scheme. For festive weddings, this is pretty straightforward; simply draw on traditional Christmas colours such as greens and reds. However, if you would like to add a modern twist, why not add some more unusual seasonal colours, such as deep purple and rich auburns. This will really brighten up your wedding décor and add vibrancy.
Next on the list is flowers. These are an essential feature of any wedding and can be tied in very nicely to a Christmas wedding theme. If you’re sticking to traditional Christmas colours, but don’t want them to be clichéd, then our advice would be to opt for deeper red stems and cinnamon sticks to subtly nod to the season. Poinsettias are a fail safe option, as they are widely associated with Christmas festivities, but instead of the traditional bright red flower, why not chose a darker auburn shade, pink or white to mix things up?
With a Christmas wedding it is nice to incorporate natural accessories to help you to really make the most of this magical season. We suggest adding natural ivy, sprigs of pine, red berries and pine cones to your wedding decoration. Using fruit and vegetables can also help to give your décor a unique twist that will truly impress your guests. Try spray painting pine cones gold or silver to add some drama to your decorations and subtly tie it into the festive theme.
This theme allows you to create stylish show-stopping table decorations. To add a sense of warmth and comfort to your decoration, we recommend adding candles or tealights to your table décor. The Venue Stylist offer a fantastic range of centerpieces for hire, including candelabras, lanterns and flower trees, which would work especially well for a Christmas wedding theme. Additionally, Christmas table confetti is a fun way to add a touch of sparkle to your wedding!
