Christmas weddings are often seen as cold and dull but having your big day during one of the colder seasons has some great advantages you may not ever think about. Many winter weddings are so much fun, and although you may have to wrap up when you’re outside, they’re full of good energy. You can truly allow the colder weather to impact your decorating and overall theme, meaning you’re going to get some ultimate Instagram pictures. It might initially seem difficult to plan a Christmas wedding, but we can assure you, it will be a lot of fun! Below are some ways of how to make sure you have a super fun and chic Christmas wedding day. Try not to worry about how the day will flow or run, you can’t predict things like this, and it’s always best to see the positives in everything.
Choose a Special Theme
Since you’re planning a winter wonderland wedding, you have some many beautiful and fun themes to choose from. However, don’t stress. If you’re struggling for ideas, there are hundreds available online for you to choose from. Perhaps select a theme that resonates with your relationship or shows how much you both love each other. There are so many to think about, just be sure to pick one that you love. Many couples opt for a wonderland wedding as they’re simply magical, especially if the weather decides to snow. The best wedding pictures are those not planned but perfectly imperfect, the winter weather often creates this scene for you.
Dress Up in Beautiful Outfits
Darker colors are the trend for Christmas weddings. Even for mother of the bride dresses or bridesmaid dresses, they’re typically dark. It’s your choice on what colors to opt for, but if you’re wanting a perfect winter wedding, then either dark blues or greys are the best way to go. However, you could try lighter pinks, blues or greens, that would work too. For flower girl dresses, you want to keep it simple whatever time of year it is. Winter weddings still mean a flower girl wears her normal attire.
Buy Unique Decorations
Another huge advantage of having a winter or Christmas wedding is the amazing decorations you can use. If it’s around Christmas time, then it’s great to choose red/green/white decorations to cover your venue properly. Plus, it will get everyone in the Christmas mood right before the best time of the year. Some couples have chosen to have mini Christmas trees on the tables or a bigger one on the dancefloor when they’ve had a Christmas wedding. It truly adds to the festive season!
Pick a Venue You Love
Winter weddings are always perfectly finished off with the ultimate venue. Don’t settle for anything less than what you love, even if this means changing your date. Be sure to secure a date with your venue before you send out any invites, this will save you money and disappointment in the long term. You may have to choose a different style of venue if you’re having a winter wedding compared to if you were having a summer wedding as the weather is sure to be colder.
