How To Plan Your Perfect Christmas Wedding


Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year, which is why many happy couples choose to host their big day during the festive period. What’s more, it leaves you with a great theme to start preparing your wedding around.

From kitsch Christmas weddings with multi-coloured bauble lights, to minimalist all-white affairs, no two Christmas themed weddings need to be alike. That’s also thanks to the diverse range of décor and venue options available nowadays.
However, planning a Christmas themed wedding does mean that there’s specific details to take into consideration. Don’t worry though, as we’ve got you covered! Below we’ve listed 5 must-see tips which will ensure your nuptials are the toast of the festive season.


 

Work with Your Venue’s Décor

One of the best things about planning a Christmas themed wedding is that a lot of the decorating will have already been taken care of by the venue.

However, if you’re planning on adding additional decorative features, it’s best to contact the venue and work with their decorating plans. Once you know the venue’s colour scheme and exactly where their Christmas tree will be placed, you can start making the room your own, safe in the knowledge their won’t be a clash of ideas!


 

Send Invitations Early

The festive period is hectic for everyone and this is one of the most important things to bear in mind if you’re going to plan a successful Christmas wedding. Getting your save-the-date cards and invitations out early is of the utmost importance.

A tongue-in-cheek approach to early invites is to send your guests Christmas greetings cards – even if they’ll arrive in the post in July. This keeps it light-hearted and shows that you understand how busy schedules can become in December.

 

Entertain the Kids

Christmas is the most exciting time of the year for most children, which means that you need to pay them special attention if you’re going to invite to your Christmas wedding.
What’s more, keeping them entertained will mean that the adults will be able to enjoy the big day to the fullest too.

If you’re planning a Christmas wedding before the 25th, one great idea is to hire a Santa Claus impersonator. The kids are sure to love this, and a North Pole backdrop can even give your wedding photos a more unique touch.


Alternatively, you could set up a tablet or video console station, where the children can play mobile games during the reception – but don’t be surprised if you have to pull your groom away from this area too!


 

Keep Warm

Another thing that you need to consider when planning a Christmas wedding is how you’re going to keep everyone warm. You don’t want your wedding photos to be spoilt by bulky winter coats nor do you want your guests to feel the chill!

In spacious venues this may mean renting a few extra heaters, or offering everyone a stylish blanket later on in the evening. Hot beverages such as mulled wine will also go down a treat, as will hot, comforting food.


Remember the Unique Touches

One of the biggest worries for Christmas brides is that their wedding may be over-taken by festive clichés and as such, the big day will fail to reflect their personality and their relationship.

However, there’s still plenty of ways you can put your own unique touch on a festive wedding. Whether that means eschewing the turkey dinner for something else, or insisting that Mariah Carey is definitely not on the DJ’s playlist, don’t become preoccupied with what other people may be expecting.

What’s more, you may even be able to add personal twists centred around your own Christmas traditions. Do you and your partner have any unconventional Christmas customs? Maybe you eat take-out on Christmas Eve or spend Boxing Day watching old cartoons? Work these into the reception and the day will feel more genuine and special.
