Chic and Classy Ideas for Your Christmas Wedding
Ahh, Christmas…the most magical holiday of all. Let the season bring warmth and special memories to your winter wedding. But don’t just start throwing red and green everywhere. Christmas weddings can be the most elegant of all.
Since Christmas decorations can border on cheesy, your wedding should take the classier route to Christmas beginning with your invitations, like these from Wedding Paper Divas. We suggest you start with white (the traditional color of winter and weddings) and add touches of lush red, silver, gold, candles and lights to make your wedding luxe and lavish. Here are some ideas for making your Christmas wedding an elegant and magical event.
Decor: For a stylish and elegant look, use white as your base color and only accents of red and green. Silver and gold accents are a classy option as well. Embrace the traditional decorations of the season–ribbons, bows, garland, and evergreen. Christmas lights are a great way to create a warm and bright atmosphere as well as enhancing the elegance.
We really like these DIY ‘Bottle Full of Light’ wedding decorations for a unique and beautiful touch to your Christmas wedding. Get the full instructions on how to make your own from the Design Mom.
Flowers: Red, red roses are the best choice for a Christmas wedding to really pop and add contrast against white decor. White roses can be added to contrast against the red or to enhance the monochromatic use of white.
Menu: Choose warm and savory foods like hot tomato soup, spinach salad with goat cheese, candied walnuts and a warm bacon dressing, roasted turkey or a hearty lasagna. Setting up a candy buffet is a fun new trend that your guests will love and it can enhance your decor.
Cake: These winter wedding cakes by Jacques Fine European Pastries have the perfect look for your chic Christmas wedding. Simple and elegant, accented with roses or snowflakes, these are truly classy Christmas wedding cakes.
