Christmas Wedding Ideas for a Winter Wonderland
Nothing could possibly be more romantic than a Christmas wedding in a winter wonderland. Imagine hues of a cool blue and white snowflakes in a venue that is designed like a fairy tale. These ideas should give you a little inspiration for a Christmas wedding in a winter wonderland.
The Color of Christmas
A Christmas wedding should feel like Christmas with all the color of the season. Bring in the holiday palette with accents of red, green, silver and gold. Add over-sized trees that are frocked with decorative snow. Everything white with the perfect accent of blue uplighting can create the cool winter effect of your dreams.
Décor for a Winter Wedding
Add garlands and berries to your tables to accent your centerpieces. Imagine potted amaryllis and poinsettias surrounded by garlands, pinecones, and floating candles in over-sized vases. Decorate with large lanterns, elegant candelabras and Christmas ornaments on the table.
Create a Christmas Bar
Serve a little eggnog during your cocktail hour with sweet Christmas tree-shaped canapés made with cucumbers, cheese, and nuts. Consider a coffee bar with pumpkin spice and peppermint flavors. Serve your beverages with the touch of Christmas napkins and candy canes in place of an umbrella.
Music and Dancing for a Christmas Wedding
Play all the romantic Christmas songs on your wedding day. Consider Christmas carolers or a live band. Bring in a brass ensemble or a grand piano to bring the magic to life. Use dancing on a cloud effects to simulate snow and rising fog. Twirl into your lovers arms with all the romance of "Baby It's Cold Outside" or "Winter Wonderland."
