Go for An Outdoor Wedding Venues

Well, suppose you have decided that you are not going to have a traditional wedding ceremony in a house of worship, as you have planned to host an Italian-themed wedding and want to go all Italian even with your wedding venue. In that case, you must look for wedding venues that offer incredible and panoramic vistas. It will be a cherry on the cake if your outdoor wedding venue overlooks the Italian countryside, this way your wedding guests will experience the genuine and authentic Italian vibes on your wedding day.

You can work around bringing in folding wooden chairs and a simple backdrop so neither your wedding guests nor our talented wedding photographers and videographers get detracted from the lavish and breathtaking scenery.

Get Wed By the Waters to have The True Italian Vibe Added To Your Wedding Day

Of course, getting hitched to the love of your life overlooking mesmerizing and sparkling waters makes even a low-key wedding celebration a luxurious and incredibly romantic celebration. And if we talk about the waterfront wedding locations that give the full Italian vibes, then the Amalfi Coast is widely known for its charming and exquisite seaside views. Gracefully lining the Tyrrhenian Sea, this lovely seaside wedding location is nothing but short of picturesque with enchanting views of turquoise-hued water as far as the eye can see. Offering endless romantic and fantastic wedding photography and videography opportunities, getting hitched on a sea is indeed a beautiful idea in order to bring endless Italian vibes to your Italian-themed wedding.

Embrace the Old-World Details For a Perfect Italian-Themed Wedding

Of course, Italy is full of classic and enchanting old-world details, so it will be a great idea if you are considering adding all those elegant old-world details to your Italian-themed wedding to make it more authentic and relatable.

How Much Bougainvillea is Enough Bougainvillea?

So, if you are planning your Italian-themed wedding celebration at this location, then it will be a blissful experience for your creative wedding photographers and videographers to document your wedding in great and colorful frames. Beautifully lining the walkways, and crawling up buildings, bougainvillea indeed adds a romantic and shape vibrance to this famous Italian wedding destination. The greatest perk of getting hitched at this location is that it does not need much adoration as the bougainvillea has already worked its magic in the best possible way giving this location the best decoration that anyone can ask for. You can also work with your florist to have a wedding ceremony arch made with lovely and colorful bougainvillea or can even consider adding them to your wedding day bridal bouquet or wedding day centerpieces!

Shop for Lace Wedding Dress to Be the Best Italian Bride on Your Wedding Day

We all know that Italy is known for its trendsetting fashion houses with the latest fashion statement-making attires. But a conservative yet stunning and elegant attire is preferred for weddings, majorly when they are taking place in a house of worship.

This kind of wedding dress will be a great addition to your Italian-bridal look on your wedding day!

Choose Ornate High Heels For Your Wedding Shoes

After all, Italy is one of the world’s biggest producing regions when it comes to wine, and we are pretty much sure that there are various wineries turning grapes into wine on the Amalfi Coast. So, when it comes to wedding day tablescape setting, it is quite easy and also a creative way to bring in this element to your wedding day decor without going over the board. You can consider adding a fine and delicate touch of fresh grapes alongside greenery will definitely make your wedding reception table setting feel all the more inspired.

Allow Your Wedding Guests to Dine in Family-Style

Well, of course, your wedding day is nothing but a grand celebration and it is the time for all your loved and close ones to be together at the same fun and have all the fun of their time together. So, consider bringing everyone together just like they are a big family. You can consider bringing in one long reception table as it is indeed a great way to make everyone feel included and to facilitate conversation. If you opt for this setup, just be sure your centerpieces aren’t too tall to block the view of the people sitting in front of each other.

Don’t Forget to Get Playful With the All-Time Favorite Italian Dish- Pizza!

It goes without even saying that pizza is an Italian tradition. So, when you are planning to have an Italian-themed wedding it will be a great, perfect, and of course, an extremely delicious way to bring a taste of Italy to your wedding day menu.

Toast With Prosecco For The Ideal Italian Vibes

If you can’t get to Italy for your Italian-themed wedding, you can always bring Italy to you! All you have to do is to get a bottle of champagne from France’s Champagne region to be considered real, prosecco must be produced in the Veneto region of Italy, north of the Amalfi Coast. While having the finest wine, all you have to do is raise a toast to the inspiration behind your classic Italian-themed wedding simply just by popping the top off a bottle of prosecco and sipping it with all your wedding guests.

Don’t Forget the Traditional Italian Dessert for Your Italian-Themed Wedding

Well, there is no denying that it is always a great idea to celebrate your special day with a cake adorned with citrus, as it will always make a beautiful choice if you are going in for an Italian-themed wedding. But, as you are going in for a true and authentic Italian wedding and paying attention even to the smallest details, it is always a great idea to bring in a more traditional Italian dessert to your wedding day dessert table for your wedding guests to relish the true taste of Italian dessert. For the best Italian dessert, you can consider bringing in the layered mille-feuille, traditionally prepared with Chantilly cream and plenty of berries for a mouth-watering taste.

Consider Gifting Limoncello As Wedding Favors to Your Wedding Guests

While limoncello is being so popular all over Italy, much of this liqueur is produced throughout the Amalfi Coast region. The beautiful citrus lemons in this exemplary area are just unique in the way they hang on the tree longer and ultimately produce fruit double in size. So, while you are planning an Italian-themed wedding, try your best to embrace the tradition of turning these beautiful lemons into limoncello and thus offer mini bottles to all your wedding guests in a beautiful welcome bag or as a unique escort card so that they can give it a try or you can also consider giving them as the wedding favors!

Summing everything up in a nutshell, all we wanna say is that the goal of hosting a classic and romantic Italian-inspired wedding, should highly focus on creating an upbeat, welcoming ambiance that bridges the gap between elegance and playfulness! As much as Italians love their traditions and sophistication, they also go all grand and huge on having fun and living in the moment—so don’t worry about taking things too seriously, when you are planning your Italian-themed wedding while not being in Italy!

Apart from deciding on the vendors and finalizing your wedding guest lists, there are other things that you need to consider.

So, in short, you won’t be able to play host(ess) the way you would do for any other cocktail hour celebration!

But, you need not stress away! We have got you covered!

All you have to do is to employ these easy points mentioned below, and we can assure you that you will have an easy-breezy cocktail hour that your wedding guests will enjoy and remember for the rest of their lives!

Go, Al Fresco, If You Can

If your wedding reception venue has a unique annex or a lovely outdoor space, then congratulations you are in luck! All you have to do is to use the entire space mainly during your cocktail hour! Your cocktail hour is the best time to make use of the entire venue space in every possible way! Well, your cocktail hour is the perfect time for all your wedding guests to mingle and catch up, relish the ambiance, adore the settings, and take a chill pill before the party kicks into full gear! So, make use of all the expansive space that your reception wedding venue has to offer! Balconies, patios, rooftops, poolside… every space can be utilized to the best and to the fullest to have a perfect wedding cocktail hour! If you are planning a romantic and classic outdoor wedding reception celebration then you just got lucky. An outdoor celebration immediately sets the entire party tone while making the entire setting more inviting and romantic! Keep the space available throughout the celebration, so that all your wedding guests can step out for some fresh air or a quick phone call later on!

Comfy Seating Is a Big “YES”

Well, for many of your wedding guests, your wedding cocktail hour will be all about standing and walking around while mingling and having some interesting convos, but some of your wedding guests will want to take a comfy seat while savoring every sip of the fine wine or whisky in their glasses! To offer the perfect combination of both the words, all you have to do is not overcrowd your wedding cocktail hour space with chairs all over the place! Just leave enough space for standing spots and for walking while adding some really comfy seats or by creating a lounge area!

When it comes to seating, there are endless and creative ways to do it! Not only will these creative ideas definitely elevate the entire seating arrangement in order to make your cocktail hour a perfect celebration but will also look stunning in all your wedding videos and photos! You can create some really unique and yes, of course, comfortable seating, just by using the combination of high tops and regular height tables, along with some lounge furniture, low chairs, barstools, floor pillows, and poofs! This way you will be able to give your cocktail hour a different feel than your classic sit-down reception dinner! If you are planning a winter wedding and looking ahead to adding a cozier vibe, you can consider building a virtual outdoor living room with comfy armchairs, rugs, and vintage end tables!

Music To Soothe the Ambiance

As most of your wedding guests will be busy talking, sipping, and snacking during your cocktail hour, bringing in some mood music will surely elevate the mood of the entire ambiance and the crowd too! Adding some soulful music is another simple yet classic way to have a perfect cocktail celebration on your wedding day! Since it is not a casual and upbeat dance party yet, keep the volume turned down and the vibe mellow so that all your wedding guests can chat with ease and savor every sip of the wine in full delight! It does not matter whether you have planned a lively DJ to keep the vibe and energy high throughout your wedding reception, but just for the cocktail hour, slow it a bit down to resonate with the calm and composed ambiance of the cocktail hour! You can consider hiring a jazz trio, quartet, or acoustic guitarist to set a completely unique, distinct, and intensely romantic mood for your memorable cocktail hour! Summing everything up, providing your wedding guests with some really delightful mood music is surely an integral part of hosting a really fabulous cocktail hour that your wedding guests will never forget!

Over-Stocking the Bar & Hiring Plenty of Bartenders is a Good Move

A perfect cocktail hour is all about enjoying drinks and having a good time with each other! With cocktails all around, we are pretty much sure that your wedding guests would be able to get their drinks quickly and without a hassle! It will be an easy breeze for them! The reason we are emphasizing so much on hiring more bartenders is if you won’t hire enough bartenders and don’t stock the bar, there might be chances that your cocktail hour celebration might fall flat pretty quickly! Just imagine the scenario of waiting in a long bar line for an entire hour? Not a good-looking scene, right? As we all know, bad bar service always results in unhappy wedding guests! So, in order to avoid this rookie mistake, all you have to do is to hire two bartenders for about every 75 wedding guests and stock the bar with plenty of liquors, mixers, and supplies! As it never hurts to have some extra, because running out is quite embarrassing, which we are pretty sure you don’t want if you have a planned perfect cocktail celebration in your mind!

If you have planned to serve bottled beer to all your wedding guests, we wanna recommend that you consider placing individual bottles in a big and fancy tub with different shapes of ice cubes and leaving plenty of beer keys for all your wedding guests giving them the option of self-serving! There should not be any reason for your wedding guests to wait in line for a bartender to pop open a bottle of beer! If you’re serving beer from kegs, however, leave it to the pros behind the counter.

Stylish Cocktail Hour Celebration is a “GO”!

We can’t deny the fact that you and your sweetheart had spent ages choosing the reception venue and then some good time to finalize the reception decor to have a memorable and picture-worthy celebration! With these things sorted, don’t let your cocktail hour celebration go by the wayside, especially if you have planned it in a separate and panoramic space! Consider bringing in small centerpieces and some aromatic votive candles to style the ambiance as the combination of these two together offers a great way to finish off the room on a romantic note! For example, if you are planning a cocktail hour under the striking city skyline, followed by an indoor wedding reception in an opulent ballroom, don’t be afraid to vary the decor of the ambiance! Take advantage and make the best use of the natural foliage offered by mother nature. Bring in some string wide ribbons and colorful banners with some lovely string lights from the tree branches to illuminate the entire setting making it cozier and extremely romantic! Well, you can also consider setting up some chic and unique floral installations near the entrance to make a that will leave all your wedding guests in great amazement! These kinds of unique ideas will also give our professional wedding photographers and videographers endless opportunities to capture your wedding day in the best and most creative frames!

A Resonating Cocktail Hour Decor Theme is Must!

Well, the color palette, centerpieces, and the entire table setting always set the theme for a wedding celebration and also the wedding reception! But, if you are planning to host your cocktail hour in a separate location or outdoors, you must try something different when it comes to the decor! You definitely do not need to make all your wedding guests wear leis and Hawaiian-themed shirts, but you can consider serving the tropical cocktails out of coconuts, and some chips with fresh papaya and mango salsa! All your need to do is take your cocktail hour celebration theme to the next level just by expanding it to your music and decor! Step up and twist your decor game and experience the magic through naked eyes and also in the wedding photos and videos! Ease out the whole decor game and just hire a mariachi band and set up some handmade guacamole and churro stations for some extraordinary elements to the overall decor! Or you can simply just have a jazz pianist and singer perform throughout the celebration and consider decorating with some different and chic art deco-style chandeliers and a bold black and white color palette! All-time classic and chic!

Don’t Forget about Signature Cocktails and Non-Alcoholic Drinks!

Well, it is absolutely true that having on-demand liquors behind the bar is important, but don’t forget about those of your wedding guests who prefer non-alcoholic drinks! Make sure there are enough signature cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages for everyone so that they don’t miss out on any moment of your cocktail hour celebration! If you are planning an outdoor summer wedding, make sure you have got a few drink selections for non-drinkers, too! For summer weddings, try water infused with cucumber, melon, and mint with lots of ice to allow everyone to relish the summer vibes in full swing! If a winter wedding celebration is on your mind, try serving cozy and seasonal, like hot apple cider with some cinnamon sticks! The bottom line is that just offer more than just water and soda to all your wedding guests by having at least one mocktail on the menu! All you need to do is work with your caterer or mixologist to come up with something inventive and really chic like a mix of grapefruit and orange juices, or a little coconut milk and a small scoop of orange sherbet on top!

Scrumptious Bites Are a Must Add On!

We know that it’s your cocktail hour menu, but we just want to say that make sure it must be diverse enough so that all your wedding guests can enjoy at least one appetizer to the fullest! If you think you just got lost where to begin, touch on the major tastes: just serve something slightly salty, sweet, bitter, and savory! Keep on offering various other dishes to complement the signature cocktail drinks! Make sure you have kept a note of all the special diets or allergies ahead of time to ensure that everyone has something to enjoy! As a twist and something different, you can consider going ahead and offering all your wedding guests something sweet before they all sit down for the reception dinner! You don’t need to spoil their appetite for what’s to come (so save the chocolate ganache for later), but don’t forget to offer a seasonally sweet treat, like a fruit tart or lemon sorbet, which could be the perfect palate cleanser before the final dinner. You can also forgo typical utensils entirely by offering all bites on edible spoons or in mini crispy cones.

Source of Entertainment is Mandatory to Keep the Celebration Alive

It’s your cocktail hour celebration, so, don’t let the name cocktail hour get you or anyone on the guestlist confused! This part of your wedding day celebration can also include fun activities, games, and endless entertainment along with cocktails and conversations! In fact, it is a great way to keep your wedding guests entertained throughout the celebration. Fun activities and games will give all your wedding guests something to do, especially to those who are quite less comfortable in social situations or just don’t know anyone at the wedding! If you are planning your memorable cocktail hour celebration in the great outdoors, you can consider lawn games such as horseshoes, corn hole, and some others that you think your guests will enjoy to the fullest. And if you are thinking of having your cocktail hour inside, you can consider bringing in a photo booth or a caricature artist on hand to create some really unique and hilarious portraits. Just one thing to remember, don’t be afraid to get creative in order to find something that perfectly fits your style and budget and can make your cocktail hour a memorable celebration for all your wedding guests!

Bring on Personalized Details and Touches

Personalize, personalize, and personalize and don’t let these words go out of your mind if you actually want to host a memorable and perfect cocktail hour for all your wedding guests to remember for years to come! From monogrammed napkins to personalized koozies, or straws with DIY flags, there are indeed endless ways through which you can incorporate personal touches and also bring in your personality or your wedding theme into the cocktail hour celebration alive in the best way possible. Just because it is the in-between time between the two main celebrations on your wedding day, that simply does not mean that it should be generic and not extraordinary! Adding your personalized details and personal touches is nothing but a great way to give all your wedding guests a little peek at what’s coming during the wedding reception celebration!

Summing up, everything! These unique and simple ideas will definitely elevate and step up your cocktail hour celebration game. We can assure you that with these tips, not only you will be able to host a memorable cocktail hour, but your wedding guests will have something to actually talk about for years to come! Cheers!

Well, you can also consider writing the text onto a roll of art paper, or even printed.


Calligraphy for Your Romantic Wedding Vows

With every aspect of our life affected by technology, we understand that it is extremely easy to use a mobile phone to read your wedding vows to the love of your life during your wedding ceremony. But how about the idea of using a delicate piece of paper that is gracefully and artistically riddled with beautiful calligraphy and your affirmation of love! Isn’t that great and incredibly romantic at the same time? This is indeed a great move to incorporate the script into your wedding day! Once you both are pronounced as the newly married couple, instead of throwing away that piece of paper you can reuse them and also get them frames so that you can hang them in your new home as a beautiful memory of your big and special day!


Calligraphy on Your Wedding Day Place Cards

Planning every aspect of your wedding day beforehand is important as it avoids last-minute chaos! For your wedding guests, a seating chart or escort card will surely help them to reach the appropriate table! But, if you are planning on assigned seating at your wedding, you will also need place cards! If you are hiring a calligrapher for everything, or you are planning to show off your calligraphy skills, you can handwrite each guess name in stunning calligraphy.

Just by this sweet gesture, your wedding guests will feel extra special on your wedding day! And this kind of wedding decor will look fantastic in your wedding photo album too!

How many gallons of popcorn will I need for _____ number of wedding guests for my wedding day?

Well, the factor of ordering the number of popcorns depends a little bit on how much food and the varieties you are putting down on your wedding menu! If you are planning a complete sit-down meal with lots of finger food, then you might consider ordering 1.5 to 2 cups of popcorn per wedding guest! But, if you are planning to have the popcorn bar as the star of your wedding celebration, then you must go with 2 to 3 cups of popcorn per guest! Just keep in mind that some of your wedding guests might not eat popcorn and the kids will have some extra. So, just plan in a way that you may want to have more than you think you need!

Just some maths here, that will help you with your question! On average, a 2-gallon bulk bag of popcorns will serve 32-1 cup servings. Whereas, a 4-gallon bulk popcorn bulk bag will have about 64-1 cup serving!

Just for an example, if you are planning on a grand celebration with about 128 to 200 of your wedding guests, as per the above-mentioned details, you will want to purchase a minimum of 8 gallons for each guest to have one-1 cup serving of popcorn!

What is the usual serving size?

Talking about the serving size, then you must plan that your wedding guests will eat an average of 1 to 2 cups of popped corn per person! But, if you want to be more precise and don’t wanna waste any food, then you can determine the amount of popcorn (by volume) the individual containers will hold in order to determine an individual serving size for your popcorn bar at your wedding!

To get a brief and generic idea, you can fill one of your containers for your wedding guests with popped popcorn, and then pour the popped popcorn into a measuring cup to actually determine the volume (preferably in cups) that the container will hold!

This simple and easy method will help you to get an approximate idea about the typical serving size of popped popcorn on your wedding day. And this way you won’t be wasting any food and your wedding guests will have enough popcorn to savor!

How long before my wedding should I order my popcorn?

Most brides and wedding planners prefer to get the popcorn delivered about 3-4 days before the wedding to alleviate any kind of last-minute stress and chaos! Or you can always schedule a future shipping date for your popcorn to arrive!

If you don’t want to schedule a future shipping date then we will suggest you place an order a week and a half to two weeks before your wedding day so that the popcorns arrive on time and also stay as fresh as possible for your big and special day!

Apart from spray-tan, choose the right highlighter as it will also help you in achieving that natural-looking glow very easily! All you have to do is focus on the color where the sun would hit: like areas across the forehead, the tip of the nose, and the cheekbones!

Soft Contour

It’s your wedding day! So, maybe it’s not the right time for you to get experimental with a heavy Kardashian-caliber contour! But, you can always try and play along with some soft sculpting which can elevate and give emphasis to the natural shape of your face and make you look incredible on your wedding day and in all your wedding photographs and videos!

If you have a matte bronzer just a shade or two darker than your skin tone will look flawless! You can simply blend the colors into the hollows of your cheekbones for a soft contour effect that reads as a naturally stunning definition!

Flushed Cheeks

Well, there is no denying the fact that a well-placed cream blush melts perfectly and beautifully into the skin to leave the softest hint of the color which will make you look ravishing! For a foolproof match, you can dab a little bit of your lipstick onto your cheeks, and then blend it out until the color is perfectly seamless and just the right shade you want on your glowing cheeks!

Natural Lashes

Well, it’s your wedding day, so of course, there are going to be moments which will make your eyes wet! So, make sure when you are picking up mascara, it should probably be waterproof, so that you can cry without having the fear of your makeup getting smudged! And the other important thing is that if you are planning for a natural makeup look for your wedding day, just make sure that you are using the natural formula that softly lifts and defines the lashes and makes your eyes look pretty!

If you don’t wear mascara usually, and you have fair skin, a brown formula will definitely be your best bet for a natural-looking lash with barely-there any definition!

Glossed High Points

If dewy skin is your ultimate goal for your wedding day, then you can gently gloss the high points of your face in no time! Your eyelids, lips, and cheekbones are some of the high and most noticeable points in your face, so make sure you are choosing a shiny (not shimmery) highlighter, to bring the illusion that your skin is actually radiating light, not glowing with sparkles! It does not matter what kind of bride you are channeling for your wedding day, a nude lip gloss will definitely deliver the perfect finishing touch to your wedding day natural bridal makeup look! From a bohemian chill bride to a classic princess bride, glossy lips work for them all and always bring out the sexy and sensuous side of every bride in the best possible way!

Blurred Lip

It’s a wedding, hence it is very clear that there is going to be kissing and too much champagne! Therefore, it might feel that lipstick is a bad idea! But, of course, wearing a lip color always elevates the overall look of the bride and in that case, you can consider wearing a lip stain and purposely blur the edges to have a long-lasting and smudge effect throughout the celebration!

You can choose whatever colors suit you the best for your wedding day bridal look! You can go with red, pink, nude, or berry shade! But just remember that if you want to keep your lip color lasting throughout the celebration, do not forget to blot, pat, and layer for that natural-looking, bitten effect!

Precious Metals

So, are you also looking out for one of the best ways to elevate your “natural” bridal makeup look to black-tie-ready status? Then here is the answer! All you have to do is focus on your eyes with a healthy dose of luster shadow! Well, luster here clearly does not mean that we are talking about disco dust, but just sheer metallic accents that never fail to create a modern, sexy smolder for your wedding day bridal makeup look! For your natural makeup look, you can choose warm metallics, like copper and gold, as they gracefully accentuate darker skin tones and bring out the best! A coppery eye gloss smudger from lash line to crease creates an alluring look that can be further enhanced and elevated by curled black lashes! If you want you can also work around your way with a golden highlighter as it lends definition to cheekbones, and a perfect nude lipstick is indeed the ideal contrast to all that sparkle! After all, for a bride, all the sparkles and blings are her best friend on her wedding day!

No-Makeup Makeup Look

Mastering the no-makeup makeup look is definitely an exercise in restraint! You can skip the lashes, contour, lip liner, and any other makeup steps you could do without and still manage to look flawless and sensuous! You can still excel your natural wedding day makeup look, with just something basic like a light coverage foundation, a hint of concealer, and some color on the cheeks and lips! Trust us, with this kind of makeup, you will look like the best version of yourself when you make your dramatic entrance while you walk down the aisle!

These are some of the incredible makeup tips for all the brides who are looking ahead to their 2022 wedding and are excited about the natural bridal makeup look! Gone are the days when bold brows, matte lip, and Instagram contour were in the trend and opted by the majority of brides for their wedding day! Our modern-day brides are preferring to slay their beauty in all its natural form!

If you just got engaged and are currently contemplating the month you should get officially hitched, December might not be the most obvious choice of month to get married! But after weekends of long and warm days, the month of December brings the ultimate festive cheer that translates to holidays and celebrations with amazing food and family time. And if you love all the things that make this month so magical, then getting married in December can be the most ideal choice for you! A December wedding is full of off-season perks as only the most daring and adventurous couples decide to get married this month. A wedding in December means more available wedding dates, reduced rates, available venues, and less stress about the weather since your celebration will be most likely indoors.

Since there are fewer weddings in December and winter in general, your wedding event is sure to stand out and your guests would not experience “wedding fatigue” as they do during the spring and summer wedding season. Plus you will have endless holiday-inspired ideas and save a lot on wedding décor as the wedding venues will most likely be decked with holiday wedding décor.

Somebody truly said that it’s the most wonderful time of the year and a Christmas wedding can be the ultimate magical experience for you and your loved ones. If you are a holiday enthusiast couple just like us, throwing a winter Christmas wedding or a wedding celebration that is close to Christmas can be the ultimate fête.

Classy Christmas Wedding Ideas And Details

 

Christmas inspired wedding cake 

What do Christmas and weddings have in common? A big fat gorgeous cake! From a classic three-tiered wedding cake dressed up with pinecones, cranberries, and mistletoe to a boldly designed red and white Christmas wedding cake topped with jingle bells and candy canes, Christmas wedding cake inspirations are endless. Different cake adornments like pine cones, berries, and pine needles are often associated with Christmas-inspired wedding cakes which can make you definitely feel the air of the holiday season. A simple and chic all-white wedding cake can also be dressed up with fresh cranberries, holly, or sugar flowers to jazz up a simple white fondant confection. If wedding cake is not your thing, then you can slightly hint at the Christmas season by bringing in certain unique wedding desserts and dishes that can easily take on a holiday form, like Christmas tree-shaped canapés made with cucumbers, cheese, and nuts.

Christmas wedding décor 

Greenery is a special and natural choice for dressing up at a Christmas wedding. It is also one of the best inspirations for a winter big day as it is flexible and can be used in many unexpected ways. For instance, long green garlands can be used to line the tent draping, chandeliers, and pool along with accented berries and classic red ribbons to make it all the more Christmassy! Another Christmas wedding detail idea is the use of jingle bells in different details. From giving out jingle bells as wedding favors to adorning simple white fondant wedding cakes with jingle bells, there are several elevated takes on the Christmas tradition and many ways to embrace it. You can also create homey holiday vibes by hanging drapes of greenery along with pinecone-accented wreaths, gathering Christmas trees, and modern wrapped orbs just like you would do at your home.

Christmas wedding invitations 

Christmas-inspired wedding stationery ideas are mostly inspired by holiday design themes which will most likely stand out in a way that makes things clear for your guests. Just like the invitation suite sets the tone for the big day, your Christmas invitation suite will likely set the scene for a Christmas-themed wedding photo gallery or album. For your holiday wedding, it is time to embrace the season by styling paper goods with accents like greenery, ribbons, and ornaments. You should never shy away from using red and green while designing your Christmas wedding invitation themes. You can always complement the shades with earth tones, metallic accents, and winter blues on your invitations, save the dates, menus, and place cards. The goal here is to make your wedding stationery stand out enough so that your guests take immediate notice of the holiday wedding theme.

Christmas wedding favors and welcome gifts 

Luxurious wedding favor ideas during the colder months are all about celebrating the festive cheer of the season. You can consider combining the festive gift ideas with traditional wedding gift inspirations to say thanks to everyone attending your wedding. For instance, Christmas ornaments inscribed with your monogram or wedding date can be a great welcome addition to your guestbook. Christmas wedding favor ideas can also involve DIY projects like handmade jams with seasonal spice, handcrafted candles, snow globes, baked goods, and late-season wines. These terrific Christmas-inspired wedding favor ideas can subtly welcome your guests to the big December wedding and can match with any destination, theme, or color palette.

Christmas themed cocktail reception 

Incorporating flavors like peppermint, cranberry, and eggnog in your ravishing Christmas-themed cocktail party can be a nostalgic spin to the good old Christmas flavors. You can bring in holiday-themed cocktails like champagnes and a luxurious selection of wines and add a dose of Christmas charm to completely make it your own. Festive wedding cocktails are the typical Christmas cocktails that include certain signature recipes like “Love Potion” or “Merry Mule.” You can add your own spin by presenting your assortment of Christmas wedding cocktails in an ice bucket with frozen berries and pine needles. Hot beverages and cocktails are also good for warming up when the temperature outside is freezing. You can serve some of the season’s most beloved hot cocktails, like mulled wine, buttered rum, spiked apple cider, and hot toddies, as well as non-alcoholic options like hot chocolate, coffee, and herbal tea.

Christmas themed wedding color palette 

Before you go out all red and green for your Christmas wedding, consider picking your favorite holiday hues with metallic and natural accents to bring in a luxurious and royal charm. For instance, you can bring in mid-century modern rental furniture, textured linens, and flocked Christmas trees in a more natural wedding color palette and accent them with Christmas-inspired wedding colors instead of making your wedding look like a gift wrapping paper.

Christmas wedding flowers 

Christmas wedding flowers can also be combined with a lot of greenery and dry flowers. Since natural flowers become sparse during this time of the year, wedding flower options like potted amaryllis flowers can be great to pair with your winter wedding décor. Instead of traditional wedding flowers, you can also go for a dried-up tree branch wrapped up with fairy lights and surrounded by votive candles and garlands of white flowers to keep with the winter wedding theme. Pine cones and green garlands can be a great option for your alternate winter wedding flowers.

Christmas reception tablescapes 

When deciding on the reception table décor for your Christmas wedding, you need to decide whether you want it to be clean and minimal or ornate and colorful. Both kinds of Christmas wedding tablescapes come with their own individual charm. While busy reception tablescapes are full of excitement and provide your guests with a lot of interest and photo ops, clean and minimal tablescapes provide guests with lots of room to pass the plate and encourage them to talk and hit the dance floor. To make it more Christmas-oriented, you can include personalized details like a signature napkin with a wordplay quote or monograms so that your guests can take them home in fond memory. Another idea is to use a special quote with a name tag and add it to every wedding detail from wedding signage to cocktail names and invitations in a complete holiday-themed design.

Christmas themed wedding lighting 

Another amazing wedding planning inspiration is to incorporate wedding lighting that sets the tone for the entire celebration. Decking up your reception space with mood lighting is one of the most fun parts of planning a wedding. Christmas wedding lighting ideas can start with a well-lit Christmas tree and garlands that can transform the entire event space into something magical. Also, string lights can play a vital role in setting the mood for a Christmas wedding. Whether you choose colorful bulbs or stick with the classic white string light, adding them to your wedding venue will amp up the space and make it undeniably cheerful and cozy. You can string them across the ceiling, around doorways, in the trees, or even use them as an addition to a decorative floral arch.

Grand Christmas wedding send-off 

Make it snow, make it glow! Grand wedding send-offs are memorably creative and stay with us for a long time. Ask your guests to make their own snowflakes in the form of a confetti shower and send you off to your exotic honeymoon as you sign off for the big wedding day. Sparkler wedding exits can also add a magical charm to your wedding exit idea. And if you are the eco-conscious type, then opt for a vintage red bus to make your grand wedding exit at the end of the Christmas wedding night.

Christmas menu ideas 

Dining is made easy with our Christmas wedding. Your Christmas wedding menu can involve your traditional holiday-inspired menu with a few romantic upgrades. Christmas dinners are already special and if you’re hosting your wedding on this special day, then do not forget to include certain Christmas staples like gingerbread cookies, festive Christmas drinks, cookie pops, chocolate-covered pretzels, and gingerbread men. You can also add healthy Christmas alternatives in your food menu like fruits stacked into a snowman or Santa shape, celery sticks stuffed with peanut butter in the shape of reindeer, and a good old charcuterie board.

Christmas wedding dress ideas

As a bride who is hosting a winter wedding on or around Christmas Day, you can opt to play your part by wearing a Christmas-themed wedding dress with lace sleeves, intricate layers, and warm wraps! A Christmas bridal outfit can be anything from a chic ball gown with embellishments and endless yards of organza, lace, or tulle or a lace wedding dress with a combination of ornate lace and tonal beading mimicking the intricacy of a snowflake. Lace-adorned long sleeve wedding dresses can also keep your arms from feeling chilly on the big day celebration. As a subtle alternative to the traditional white gown, you can also opt for wedding dresses in blush tones and champagne hues. Outfits of your bridesmaids can also be planned in deep and dark shades in fabrics like satin that offers a luxurious shine to contrast the wintery landscape.

The benefits of a Christmas wedding are not only limited to holiday-inspired wedding décor and festive wedding ideas, but your wedding can be the ultimate time where all your loved ones come under one roof and take some time off to be with each other. It’s also nice to get out of town at this time of the year with cold and snow engulfing certain parts of the world and exotic beach wedding destinations turning even dreamier. So you can take your best pick for a dream honeymoon getaway right after your Christmas wedding. Also for couples who love minimalist wedding ideas, the chances are that your wedding halls will already be decked with built-in themes and it will take a very little effort to transform it into something that is uniquely your own. Upscaling your Christmas décor and turning it into your wedding décor ideas is another great way to repurpose wedding décor elements for having an eco-chic wedding.

A Christmas wedding in December can be an ideal opportunity to celebrate the best of this festive season and throw an amazing holiday wedding party that will send your guests home smiling. From bright winter holiday cocktails to decking up the wedding halls in white, green, and red details, there are so many chic ways to host your Christmas wedding. If throwing fake snow all over your wedding is your idea of going overboard and tacky, then there are pretty chic Christmas wedding details that can add colors to your favorite winter whites in an elevated way that sprinkles a dose of holiday magic sparingly and intentionally.

Looking for impactful invite designs for your winter wedding? Check out these ideas for some gorgeous and impressive winter wedding invites!

 

Long before your wedding day arrives, it’s the wedding invitation that reaches your guests and graces their letterbox and then gets pinned on their refrigerator in anticipation. While it is easy to think that the wedding invitation is just what it is, an invitation to your wedding, it is, in fact, much more. It is essentially a trailer to your wedding day, a peek at the aesthetics that the guests can expect, a reason to anticipate for the day to come. Sometimes the wedding invitation can create an entire whirlwind of anticipation and curiosity among the guests, especially if you are living out breadcrumbs of hints for your guests to pick on and decipher.

A winter wedding is especially magical, with snow-dusted landscapes, crisp air, festive glow in the atmosphere, and the coziness of snug indoors. While there are many wedding invitation ideas for the warmer days of the year from blooming flowers to chirping birds, waterfront locations, and vintage garden weddings, the winter months are full of refreshing ideas as well when it comes to the wedding invitations. The winter wedding invitation will largely depend on the wedding theme that you have chosen- the colors of your choice, the vibe of your wedding day, the location, as well as your personal preferences. While winter wedding invites are generally assumed to be festive or dark, there are, in fact, many different ways you can go about this. From soft romantics to moody charcoal, from the celestial night sky to the mountain cabin feel, there are many different ways you can go about a winter wedding invitation, depending on whatever suits you the best. Below mentioned are some of our favorite wedding invitation ideas for the winter months.

Dark hues

Dark moody colors are something that is associated with winter forever. Not only does it coincide with the fact that most winter weddings have a darker color theme, but it is also dramatic, enthralled, and enchanting, all at once. Colors like charcoal gray, burgundy, emerald green, and midnight blue work especially well with the winter months. And it does hurt that these colors show off the metallic hues, perfect for metallic foiled lettering on the invite, making for a truly exquisite winter wedding invite!

Woodsy ferns

Preparing for a woodsy forest wedding? Winter tends to be the perfect time for forest weddings as the woods turn to a whole different vibe as the months turn colder. If that is your wedding theme, decorating your wedding invite with woodsy ferns can be a nice touch. One can never go wrong with a wedding invitation featuring foliage and whimsical ferns, both in summer as well as winter, but in winter it takes a cozier and a more magical allure which is perfect for a woodland winter wedding.

Woodland landscapes

Something about the pensive mood of the winter makes one daydream about heading out to the woods. If a woodland wedding is in your cards, featuring a woodland landscape on your wedding invite is a great idea. You can go for enchanting woodland sceneries or more neutral woodland animal landscapes featuring bears, raccoons, etc. For some reason, it is cozy, enticing, and makes one think of a camping trip. This can be a great idea of a wedding invitation if you are planning for a camping-themed winter wedding as well!

Snowy paradise

Look into the invitation suite which feels like stepping into a winter wonderland. An elevated color palette of blues, whites, and grays promise to be both sophisticated and whimsical, while the watercolor snowflakes framing the corners will add to the obvious wintery vibe of the invite. You can also have vintage snowy landscapes in your invite, like asking town, or a couple huddled up for hot cocoa!

Festive reds

Winter means that the festive season is right there, providing solace in the cold winter months. And what better way to bring the festive allure to your wedding day than by bringing the color red to your wedding invite! Whether it is a sparse addition of holly, or it is more intense velvety red with touches of gold, there are a variety of different ways that the festive red color can bring its own cheer to your wedding day. If your wedding day coincides with Christmas, this can be the perfect choice for your Christmas winter wedding!

Velvets

It’s not really the style or color, but the texture which does the magic here! Gorgeous velvet finish stationeries feels luxe and indulgent and makes all the difference. You can also alternatively go for velvet ribbon tying up your invitation suite, wrapping it all in a luxurious bow! Velvet is timeless and perfect for the winter months and will add a bit of indulgence to even the most simple winter wedding invite! Keep it dark with colors like burgundy, evergreen or black and the effect will be enchanting!

Checked in

There is something about plaid and winter that seems like a marriage of its own! Using plain accents in your wedding invitation can be perfect for a winter wedding as it will bring out the festive flair while still being cozy and comforting! There are several checkered or plaid patterns you can choose from, be it black and white, neutral or red and green!

Icy blue

Celestial night

There is something about the night sky that gleams a little brighter on cold cloudless winter nights. If you are planning for a celestial-themed wedding, take inspiration from the boundless night sky, and you won’t be disappointed! You have the whole of the universe to seek inspiration from, so while the wedding theme is quite particular, it is also abundant in options! While one can seek to be inspired with the familiar like the stars, the moon, clouds, and the magical midnight sky, there is a whole lot we are not familiar with too, which can add a bit of whimsy and mystic charm to a wedding! A celestial wedding is a perfect blend of whimsical and bohemian, and the deep blue and the sparkling silver will work perfectly well for a winter wedding!

This is why the above-mentioned wedding invite ideas are just some of the many out there.
