Christmas Wedding Ideas

Christmas Wedding IdeasPlanning a wedding near Christmas? Would you like to keep with the spirit by having a Christmas Theme Wedding? Here are some great Christmas wedding ideas to have the perfect Christmas Wedding.

First, you gotta have Christmas lights! Decorate your church or ceremony location with white lights and tulle - the perfect Christmas wedding idea for a snowy, romantic effect. Many churches will already have Christmas trees up in their sanctuaries, so you won't even need to provide much more in decorations.

Christmas Wedding IdeasIf it fits within your budget, hang wreaths on a couple of pews or at the end of a row of chairs. You can even make these wreaths yourself (watch for our next newsletter on a great Christmas wedding idea - decorating Christmas wreaths to double as pew and table decorations).

Choose a ceremony location with a fireplace (or make a fake fireplace using a large piece of paper and drawing a fireplace on it) and hang stockings with all of the names of your bridal party on them. Place a special Christmas gift of thanks for each of them in their stocking.

For wedding favors with a Christmas theme, give out Christmas ornaments. You can make these, buy them, or even have your guests make them right at your wedding as a fun activity!

Place wreaths in the center of each table with a candle in the middle of them as table decorations. For an aromatic effect, choose pine smelling candles or another smell that you associate with Christmas. (Watch for our next newsletter on a great Christmas wedding idea - decorating Christmas wreaths to double as pew and table decorations.)

Christmas Wedding IdeasIf you have a lot of children attending your reception, arrange for a special visit from Santa Claus. Santa can give each child a candy cane and ask them what they want for Christmas. Make sure your photographer knows about this or have someone take a Polaroid of each child on Santa's lap.

After dinner, sing Christmas carols together. Make sure to have someone well-versed in Christmas carols available to play requests on the piano and have books available for your guests to sing from.

Christmas Wedding IdeasLater in the evening, offer Christmas cookies and hot chocolate or eggnog for your guests to warm up to. Or, make lots of cut-out cookies ahead of time, along with red, white, and green frosting. Then, allow your guests to decorate their own Christmas cookies to eat or take home (this could be a less-expensive Christmas wedding favor idea than Christmas ornaments) - don't forget the sprinkles, jimmies, red hot candies, etc.

Finally, surprise your fiance by arranging for a horse- drawn sleigh to pick you up and whisk you away.

Best Wishes on your Christmas Wedding,
Kelly Kons
