Top Tips for Planning Your Christmas Wedding

Christmas time is a very romantic time of year, and finding those perfect ideas for wedding favours isn't as hard as you think. By using these ideas for wedding favours and decorations will make your Christmas wedding a perfect winter wonderland wedding.

In creating your Christmas wedding, colour is going to be an important part. You can choose the traditional red and green, or you may want to go more elegant with blue and silver.

Choose a ceremony location that has a fireplace to give you more of a grand wedding. When decorating your chosen location you can hang wreaths on the pews or at the ends of a row of chairs. For the decorations at the reception you could put up a Christmas tree. You could decorate the tree with white lights and special ornaments that have the bride and grooms name on them as well as the wedding date, and then give those away as wedding favours. You could also ask for the guests to wrap your wedding gifts in Christmas wrapping paper and then have them place the gifts under the tree instead of on a table.

For the tables you could use a gingerbread house as a centrepiece or a wide pillar candle with cranberries surrounding it. You could also hang mistletoe above the bride and grooms seats at their table.

When deciding on your menu for the reception you should have the menu reflect the season. When guests arrive at the reception you could greet them with hot apple cider or mulled wine. For dinner options you could have maple glazed ham, served with apple gravy, butter herb roasted turkey with stuffing, lemon pepper salmon, prime rib, or roast baron of beef. The side dishes could include items such as roast potatoes, green bean casserole, glazed carrots, and creamy garlic buttered mashed potatoes. For dessert you could offer a selection which could include baked cheesecake with seasonal berry compote, hot steamed pudding, sticky toffee pudding or traditional holiday cookies and candies.

For the wedding cake this is where you can get very creative. You could have a tiered cake that is different colour presents, or maybe have a tiered cake set on top of a sleigh pulled by Santa and his reindeer. You could also have a traditional cake and use poinsettias for the flowers.

At the end of the night you could give each guest a goodie bag filled with wedding favours such as one of the ornaments off the tree, special hot chocolate mix, and any other little gifts you want to add to say thank you for attending my wedding and celebrating the beginning of your lives together.
