Themed Invitations

You can let your guests know that you intend to have a Christmas-inspired wedding by sending out Christmas-themed invitations. They can be elegant with shiny images of Christmas trees, baubles and twinkling lights on a plain background.

Ivory & Gold Cake

Request that your baker use neutral or muted colors for the cake, like white and gold. Decorate that with pops of Christmas colours. Don’t hesitate to choose unique flavours for the cake itself. Wedding cake doesn’t have to be fruitcake!


Festive Christmas-Theme Tablescape

Tartan is Christmasy but can be overpowering. The key to keeping it subtle is to use it sparingly, for example, in your napkins. Traditional wedding centerpieces can take a backseat to festive additions, like an evergreen garland running the length of the reception tables.

Rustic Christmas Photo Tree

At your reception, have a Christmas tree made of twigs. Adorn it with fairy lights and engagement photos and anything else that is sentimental to you as a couple.

Mix Up Your Music

Along with the more common wedding songs, add some lively Christmas music to the mix.

It’ll keep everyone on the dance floor and get them into the mood for the upcoming holiday.
