What better way to get your Christmas wedding theme underway than with a gorgeous Christmas centrepiece. This adds a glamorous and elegant touch to your wedding that guests are sure to love. It also represents the perfect place for guests to write their well-wishes to the new happy couple.

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations are an excellent way to add some colour and personality to your wedding. Poinsettia flowers and Christmas ornaments can really liven things up and give your special day that Christmas aesthetic. These can be placed on the aisles during your Wedding ceremony and at the dinner table during the reception.

The colour palettes for Christmas have changed a lot in recent years – beautiful silver and blue make a stunning wedding colour theme for the holiday season.

Christmas Themed Cake

It’s no secret that the cake is a focal point of any wedding. This is another fantastic opportunity to incorporate colours and flavours of Christmas. Whilst we don’t recommend a red or green coloured cake, drawing inspiration from snow and tinsel is a wonderful start.

Christmas Backdrop

With the exception of the happy couple, guests often remember a wedding most for its scenery. A gorgeous red and green backdrop littered with colourful flowers helps to add to your special day and portray this Christmas theme.

Christmas Themed Ceremony

At the heart of any great wedding is a loving and moving ceremony. Some Christmas themed colours, whether tradition red or green, or more modern silver and blue, can be incorporated into decorations at the focal point, archway and aisles – this is a great way to celebrate your wedding with Christmas edge.

Christmas Reception

Whilst the ceremony is definitely the fundamental part of any wedding celebration, a lot of guests tend to remember the reception a bit more fondly. As such, you want to ensure that the Christmas theme sticks out in their minds afterwards. Whether it’s decorating the chairs, dining table or staircase, there are a ton of things you can do to help perpetuate the Christmas theme here.
