Christmas Wedding Ideas

Have you been trying to think of Christmas wedding ideas that are different from the same old red and green colors usually used or that use Christmas trees and garland as the primary decorations? If so, have a look at some of the interesting Christmas themed wedding ideas featured here.

Typically, Christmas themed weddings will usually have Christmas trees as part of the decor - so why not take that to the next level by using a lot of green in your decorations? Use large and small tree shapes for centerpieces and favors; have your wedding cake made to look like a beautifully decorated tree decorated, and use brightly lighted and decorated trees as decor.

That's just one way to take a simple decorating scheme and enhance it by focusing on a particular Christmas icon. Here are a few more:

Christmas Traditions In Other Countries

How about planning your wedding around the Christmas traditions of a different country? With a bit of research, you can easily find out how they celebrate Christmas in France, Germany or Italy, for example.

Set up your menu to feature that country's food and drinks, use their unique decorations to decorate your ceremony and reception venues, play their carols and music during dinner, and present your guests with favors that reflect that country's gift giving traditions.

Beautiful Ornaments As A Christmas Wedding Theme

Ornaments are very much a part of this holiday season. Send out ornament themed wedding invitations, set your tables with ornament centerpieces, give ornaments as favors, cover white bare-branch trees with twinkle lights and ornaments, and hang the overly large balls from the ceiling and doorways. What other ideas can you think of to incorporate ornaments into your theme?

Old Fashioned Victorian Christmas Marriage Celebration

A Victorian Christmas wedding celebration featuring carolers during dinner is another lovely idea. Use paper and lace to decorate, send out old Victorian invitations, fill paper cone favors with old fashioned candies, set up iron-style lamp posts decorated with wreaths to use as low lighting during the reception.

Folk Art Christmas Wedding

Do you like primitive folk art? Then use Christmas wedding ideas based around this art style. Enhance your tables with quilted placemats and napkins, hang old-fashioned stockings along the front of the head table, use wooden candle holders and dried winter flowers in woven baskets as centerpieces. What you're looking for is Christmas decorations that are simplistic and that are made of wood, fabric, paper, clay, tin, and other everyday materials. Nothing shiny, glittery or new looking belongs here.

Quick Suggestions For Christmas Themed Weddings

Here are a few more Christmas wedding ideas that you may want to consider. Just think about how you can use these symbols in your decor while planning your wedding:

  • Angels (use white and gold as your colors)
  • Santa Claus (use red and white as your colors
  • Christmas presents
  • Christmas wreaths
  • Poinsettias and holly
