I love this time of year & I (obviously) love weddings; so what’s better than putting the two together?!? How do you pull this off without your wedding looking like a cheesy corporate holiday party? Let’s walk through it…
First off, the invitations will play a part in setting up your theme. You could choose a simple white and red themed invitation, don’t forget the ribbon!
Not opting for red? Check out these white & silver snowflake themed “Winter Wonderland” beauties from East Six
For bridesmaids, I like darker colors for this time of year. There’s always the classic black.
Or any other array of darker shades or jewel tones. I love this dark red.
For the ceremony, I love these white branches as décor for the Winter Wonderland theme.
Onto the reception… There are lots of fun & unique place card options for the holiday theme.
While I do like this traditional white and red place card look with snowflakes in the background,
I love these next two ideas! Using pinecones as place cards,
Or creating snowflake ornaments! You could have them hanging on branches for your guests to find!
At the reception, you have a few color options in my opinion.
You can stick with the classic deep red theme.
Work it into your tables and linens,
Centerpieces & décor,
as well as your cake!
Another festive option is metallics; gold or silver.
I love how these centerpiece are both made up of many different parts but don’t look too cluttered.
And, of course, silver or gold cakes.
Finally, you could stick with the Winter Wonderland theme & use whites, with touches of blue or purple.
I love the little touches of snowflakes here…
And at the end of the night… Favors of course!
I LOVE the idea of ornaments that your guests can put up each year and remember your special day by.
Another idea? Edible favors! I love these little snowmen & gingerbread man cookies!
Staying in the holiday spirit, I found these shiny silver bells that were handed out as favors with ribbon tied around them.
Finally, what better gift to your guests at the end of the year than a planner for the following year?! LOVE this idea!
Did you have a holiday wedding (or do you dream on having one)? I’d love to hear your ideas!
