Make your wedding guests go “wow” before they even enter and ensure that they leave a little dazzled with these luxe wedding reception ideas!

Surely your wedding day is something that you and your partner look forward to with all the anticipation and love in your hearts. However, your wedding guests make your wedding reception the celebration that it is. They not only bring with them the good wishes for your happily-ever-after to start with all the positive vibes, but they also bring to the table the happy glow of pleasant company and the iridescent promise of a good time. When you look back at your wedding day decades from now, you will think back to the way your guest cheered as you kissed your lover after you said “I do”, how your aunt made that funny toast or how your college girlfriends rocked the dance floor! After all, it’s all about the warm glow of the people which envelops you and makes your wedding day such a joy, isn’t it?

While the precious names who made it to your guest list add such a precious touch to your special day, you might want to make your wedding reception equally memorable for them! While all wedding receptions are a pleasure to attend, it’s the ones that truly wow the guests over which are remembered forever, the anecdotes of which live on far beyond the wedding day flowers! Here are some amazing ways that you can wow your wedding guests and leave them feeling warm, welcome, and a little mind-blown! It’s all about going big or going home here!

Welcome them with a drink

There is something about a welcome drink that instantly makes one feel special! Consider offering out glasses of champagne as wedding escort cards in addition to your standard welcome drink. Replace traditional escort cards with individually named champagne flutes, which will ensure that everyone arrives at their tables and is ready to toast in one step. This will make a terrific first impression on your guests!

Exit with a bang

What better way to end a wedding reception than with a fireworks display? A jubilant firework show will add excitement to your ceremony exit or nighttime reception. Alternatively, give your guests sparklers and champagne to hold while they accompany you to your getaway car at the end of the night. Remember to check with your location to see if pyrotechnics and sparklers are permitted.

Consider a quick change!

For the wedding reception, the bride and groom dress in a contemporary style. Because all eyes will be on you at the reception, it’ll be a pleasant surprise when you switch from your traditional wedding gown to a shorter, flirtier second dress. You can go for completely different dresses or two-in-one wedding dresses which can be easily transformed. If you wish to keep your wedding gown, make additional style modifications such as letting your hair down, swapping shoes, or adding a few fresh items of jewelry.

Hand out kits!

With wedding favor kits, you can anticipate their needs! Your guests will enjoy it, whether it’s hangover kit wedding favors or a cute emergency kit for the morning after. You might include hangover remedies such as aspirin, water, and energy snacks to help them get back on their feet after a night of celebrating. You can also have summer essential kits, or themed kits as they arrive to get them excited about your chosen venue, theme, or activities!

Add drama with flowers

Big is more when it comes to flowers which impress! How about using cabbage roses as table centerpieces for your wedding reception? On your reception tables, go big with tall, over-the-top centerpieces. Cabbage roses and ranunculus, for example, create a bold impact when paired with a neutral color palette. You can have them arranged in clear glass vases for a clean yet impactful look. If big flowers are not your style, go for flower installations instead! We have a soft spot for Baby’s breath cloud-like overhead installations over here, and it will surely get all the guests to go “wow!”

Provide luxe lounge areas

With a hint of effortless luxury, set up your outdoor lounge area for your wedding reception. Create a lounge space with comfortable couches, chairs, and enough pillows for visitors to mingle between dance breaks. It’s the ideal technique to keep everyone involved in the celebration, even if they’re not dancing. Set up luxe poufs, velvet pillows, and comfy throws, and the more mismatched it looks, the better the effect. This can also be a great area for some dramatic group photography!

Hang low chandeliers

It’s true! A chandelier adds that luxe element to any event! There is something about the intricately cut glasses and crystals that reflect light most gloriously, and makes any setting elegant! If you are hosting an outdoor wedding reception, consider handing low chandeliers and watch your setting light up! When it comes to planning your outdoor event, the options are unlimited. Low-hanging chandeliers and delicate blooms can be used to decorate the space. You can have it glam, gothic, or vintage as you would like, depending on the chandelier you choose. Instead of circular tables, arrange everyone at banquet tables to create a more intimate setting.

A feast for the eyes

Sure, the wedding feast will fill the stomach, but it’s the winning display that makes half the impression! So go all out with your food displays, whether that’s creative salad bars, charming dessert tables, or wow-inducing chocolate fountains and fondue arrangements! This also holds for vintage champagne towers with cascading champagnes making quite the scene! You might also go for a vintage wedding cake presentation with details all around the cake. Use glittering lights, loads of blooms, and a unique stand to dress up your cake presentation. You can also go for cute ice cream trucks, cotton candy carts, and popcorn carts which are not just for utility but hugely add to the aesthetic!

A groom’s cake that impresses

After all, why not? A groom’s cake, whether it’s a Red Sox–themed one or a Star Wars-themed one, will undoubtedly make your guests’ jaws drop. Choose a second cake that appears too genuine to eat and collaborate with your spouse on a theme that best suits you both. Include a non-cake delicacy like doughnuts, varied pies, cookies, or an ice cream bar, as well as an inside joke, a favorite activity, or a favorite hobby.

Late-night bites

Who doesn’t like late-night snacks after hours of dancing, drinking, and socializing? Treat the guests who survive the after-hours and linger a bit longer to prolong the party a bit. Serve them special after-hours bites, whether it is mini ice cream cones, s’mores, or milk and cookies! When everyone thinks the celebration is over, liven it up with late-night goodies that will get guests ready for the after-party. Your guests will adore you for your midnight nibbles, which include ice cream bites, fresh chocolate chip cookies, milk shooters, or a fully stocked taco bar. The extra details will immediately land your special day firmly as your guests’ favorite wedding reception!

Plan games and activities

At your reception, keep your guests, especially the younger ones, amused with the fun and interactive activities. Set up a game of cornhole at your outdoor ceremony, or set up a coloring station at one of your reception tables. You can choose from a variety of wedding games and activities, such as bride and groom trivia, picture scavenger hunts, ring tosses, or good old karaoke! Keeping your wedding guests occupied with wedding activities not only keeps them entertained but also helps to alleviate any nervousness or anxiousness as you transition from the wedding ceremony to the reception.

Have a fun “guest book” to sign

Think beyond the typical guest book, and choose fun instead! You can ask guests to leave a message on a vintage surfboard at your tropical destination wedding, or create a jigsaw puzzle of your photo and let guests sign each piece. You can also have them fill up paper notes filled with advice and wedding tips in wine bottles, which can be opened on your forthcoming anniversaries! You can have a couple of different bottles to be opened in 2 years, 5 years, or 10 years of your wedding anniversaries! Guest book activities are not only fun, but it also lets your guest know that you appreciate their input in your life!

Photo backdrops to remember

A picture speaks in memories and holds the secret of the day for you to treasure. Having the perfect photo booth is a surefire method to catch those candid, silly moments that your photographer might miss. For a summer wedding, use snorkel gear or opera masks and monocles, and for a formal occasion, use opera masks and monocles. This is the perfect way to make a themed wedding truly be remembered as intended. At a bucolic wedding, a vintage Volkswagen photo booth can be the perfect addition, while you can go full flapper girl for a 1920s-inspired wedding! The options are endless, and it’s a fun way for your guest to indulge and have fun!

Wow with lighting

Lighting speaks louder than most of your other wedding decors. Revolutionize your venue with jaw-dropping lighting which will wow your guests. You can go for decadent chandeliers for a touch of eclectic elegance or go modern and sassy with neon light signage! You can have hanging lanterns from a tree that act as the perfect ceremony backdrop or photo backdrop, or you can go full-on romantic with dripping candles lining the stairways as you walk down the stairs! And all things said and done, do not underestimate the brilliance of fairy lights!

Gorgeous installations

Installations that defy gravity or stand out looking all dramatic are something that will have your guest’s attention as soon as they walk in! Whether it is a quaint art installation or a floral installation, there is plenty you can do here! Lush installations, and more specifically floral installations, are a current trend. You can incorporate this trend into your wedding decor in a variety of ways to achieve a chic look, whether it’s with a stunning and jaw-dropping wedding backdrop, edgy and dramatic overhead installations, a modern wedding seating chart with moss, greenery, and candles, or a jaw-dropping art installation that cascades down the stairs looking like a piece of art!

Display towering tiers

It’s either go big or go home! With a vast guest list, you have the perfect excuse to go all out with your cake. Consult your cake baker about constructing a multi-tiered work of art that will wow your guests. For a beautiful wedding, a multi-tiered elegant wedding cake will command all of the attention. When it comes to towering layers, you can go for tall chocolate fountains, champagne towers, or even just your table centerpieces! It will quickly give your big day an opulent feel!

Set up an awesome satellite bar

Offer your guests a celebratory surprise with a cigar rolling station during cocktail hour. If cigars aren’t your thing, any creative, personal satellite bar idea works too, like a make-your-own prosecco drink station or a tequila tasting bar. This is not only a fun activity that your guest can partake in, but it also makes your wedding reception that much extra special!

Unique reception performers

Entertain your wedding guests with style, whether it is with live painters, fire breathers in the evening, an aerialist performer to perform a full in-the-air dance routine, or casually floating above loved ones to give your guest a wow-factor experience! While there is a DJ or a band at every wedding, having a wedding reception performance that is unique and wow-inducing can leave the impression of your wedding in your guests’ minds forever! You can also have unique traditional dance routines performed by professionals or drink servers which will light up the cocktail hour significantly!

Extraordinary wedding favor

Let your wedding guests leave with more than just memories from the day! When you hand out your wedding favors, consider going that extra mile. Whether it is a cocktail kit for a drink after the ride home or a polaroid that captures the guest’s experience perfectly, whether it is a personalized wine glass or the satisfaction of going back knowing that a tree will be planted in the guest’s name, wedding favors which lingers on for that extra time truly makes your wedding day memorable! While things that induce great memories forever are much appreciated, you can also go for wedding favors that are plain old fun, like a mini champagne bottle with a personalized label!

Light up the stars

How about a Tangled-inspired paper lantern ceremony for you and your guests to enjoy? You can do this after the reception is almost over and before you set off towards your happily-ever-after. You and your sweetheart can first light the paper lanterns together and set them off in the night sky, and your wedding guests can follow suit. The whole sky will light up most gloriously, and it will surely leave your guest enchanted! It also sets the scene for some lovely photo opportunities!

Going that extra mile for your guest is worth the effort when you see the look in their eyes which is filled with awe and wonder as if they have just walked into a carnival! They will still be talking about your amazing reception party a month from now, and slowly those awe-struck memories will transform into warm and fuzzy feel-good vibes which will forever be attached to your special day! Isn’t that a lovely thought? So go ahead and treat your guests to a wedding experience that they will take home with them and hold close for a long while!

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?

You can always place an order for popcorn for your wedding day as early as you would like! When you will submit the order you will be asked to specify your preferred shipping date, and you can choose whatever you find the best! 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!

As the pandemic gave us a chance to reconnect with nature, we are most likely to see a rise in nature-focused weddings with a newfound love for the great outdoors. Another wedding style trend for 2022 nods to intimate wedding guest lists where post-pandemic wedding guest lists will be limited to the couple’s family and close friends only. Simplicity and non-traditional weddings are most likely to shine in 2022, meaning we will see simple and intimate wedding celebrations, unlike traditional extravagant and formal weddings. Virtual weddings became a thing in 2020 and the pandemic wedding trend is still going to continue in 2022 weddings. Intimate backyard weddings became very popular during the Covid-19 pandemic and will continue as a wedding trend in 2022.

Wedding Cake Trends 2022

Wedding trends come and go and they come back again! And one of the biggest predictions regarding wedding cake trends for 2022 is that cool retro wedding cake designs will be a rage. In the luxury wedding cake trends, we will see more couples dabble in wafer paper wedding cakes to make a bold statement. As a nod to retro wedding trends, acrylic wedding cakes will arrive with confections featuring clear acrylic tiers along with a clear and transparent tier. This transparent cake tier will act like a divider which will create an amazing and never-before-seen floating illusion and add to the height of the wedding cake. Just like some of the most gorgeous wedding cakes of 2021, 2022 wedding cake trends will also see a rise in sculptural wedding cakes featuring wedding confections that will mimic an entire art gallery or act as a testament to some of the most timeless arts from around the world. And two of the most timeless wedding cake designs– semi-naked and fondant wedding cakes are going to stay for a while, but we will see certain versatile additions to this trend like beautiful sculpting techniques, hand painting, and an abundance of textures.

 

Wedding Color Trends 2022

According to the prediction by wedding experts, wedding color trends for 2022 will see a rise in powder blues and millennial pinks, which were considered to be prime color trends of the 80s. While the trendy wedding colors of 2021 also saw a rise in powder blue alongside lavender, matcha green, papaya orange, and Tuscany yellow, the prediction surrounding wedding color palettes of 2022 show a resurgence of vintage metallics and moody earthy tones. Color palettes of wedding reception trends 2022 will be a huge comeback from the art deco and all Hollywood eras. From warm earthy hues with colors like burnt sienna and marigold yellow popping up in wedding details to vintage accent colors like gold and midnight blue metallic paint are likely to make a comeback. Vintage accent colors will mostly be seen in details like metallic reception chairs, table sliders, or even Moscow Mule featuring as the signature cocktail and served in copper mugs. We are also most likely to see vibrant jewel tones and moody winter color palettes in the latter half of the year.

 

Wedding Flower Trends 2022

Non-traditional wedding flowers will be hot for 2022! Bohemian and eco-friendly wedding aesthetics like dried flower details will be one of the major wedding flower trends in 2022. Dried wedding flowers can come in many ways to reflect in your wedding color palette and be added to almost every element of your wedding reception- from bridesmaids’ bouquets to reception tablescapes. As the floral industry is getting ready for a smashing wedding season in 2022, we are also seeing wedding greenery as an earthy floral element and one of the most emerging wedding flower trends for 2022. Greenery draped florals, ground installations, staircases, and even wedding altars and aisles are expected to be a gorgeous wedding flower trend for 2022. As dried florals and greenery details engulf wedding décor trends 2022, we are also expecting to see a surge in romantic and dreamy weddings that are reminiscent of the French countryside.

 

Wedding Décor Trends 2022

Wedding décor trends in 2022 will see the increased popularity of greenery and dry flowers in wedding details. As we are going to experience a surge in reduced wedding sizes, with a limited number of people, couples will opt for personalized elements and inspirations. 2022 wedding trends when it comes to wedding décor will be a display of vintage-inspired statement-making wedding details which will bring a dose of beatnik and unconventional flair. We are going to see a lot of statement-hanging wedding décor details like suspended lanterns in ceilings and high back peacock chairs in welcome tables, along with rattan lounge furniture and assorted wicker baskets decking up the wedding décor ideas. Organic style arrangements will also be an integral part of the celebrations as per wedding trends for 2022. This post-pandemic wedding trend in 2022 will be about creating free-flowing and organic style arrangements on a larger-than-life scale. Hence we are more likely to see organic and earthy wedding color palettes, the use of vines and greens instead of traditional wedding flowers, and hanging floral centerpieces as means to bring the outdoors in.

 

Wedding Food Trends 2022

Swaying away from traditional wedding food menu options, wedding food trends 2022 are showing a steep rise in comfort and homemade food, unlike high-end meals coming from big-named caterers. However, wedding food decisions differ greatly from couple to couple, as we see traditional couples still indulging in gourmet food prepared by renowned wedding caterers and budget couples opting for a homemade food menu that is prepared by their close ones. But one of the primary wedding reception trends for 2022 when it comes to food and drinks comfort food is likely to become a hit in 2022. As a nod to nostalgia, wedding food trends of 2022 will most likely have couples prepare their summer wedding cocktails with tasty recipes and served with childhood snacks like grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken sliders. Home staples like casseroles and fried chicken will become wedding staples in 2022! Couples are also most likely to go for vegan catering options and street food vans as a strong nod to DIY wedding trends.

 

Wedding Stationery Trends In 2022

If the pandemic in 2022 has taught us anything, it will certainly be how precious things are! As couples are becoming more environmentally conscious, they are most likely to incorporate digital trends into their wedding plans as a step towards eco-friendly wedding planning in 2022. As per wedding invitation trends for 2022 couples are choosing to go paperless. Hence, instead of traditional invites, we will see a rise in digital wedding invites and several paperless wedding choices like digital save-the-dates and announcements. Most of the traditional wedding stationery details are most likely to be replaced with digital wedding experiences in 2022, from digital reception table arrangement displays to online wedding announcements.

 

In the same way that small-scale wedding parties became more popular in 2020 and 2021, intimate wedding parties will most certainly stay popular in 2022. Outdoor wedding themes will be reflected in post-pandemic weddings in 2022 as couples rediscover the beauty of reconnecting with mother nature. Sustainable and eco-friendly wedding trends will gain traction, and with the advancement of technology, we will see paperless wedding details, digital announcements, and wedding suites replacing traditional wedding stationery.

 

Simplicity will shine in 2022 weddings, unlike traditional extravagant wedding celebrations. With the suspension of formal wedding celebrations due to safety reasons, couples are likely to realize the preciousness of small wedding celebration experiences with neutral and warm earthy tones along with vintage style settings. And due to guest list restrictions, intimate weddings with small wedding guest lists will be the new normal for 2022 wedding celebrations.

 

Minimalist wedding style is another wedding trend that says “less is more” and we are most likely to see blank space wedding spaces with creative wedding signage ideas and neutral wedding décor details. These post-pandemic wedding trends and predictions for 2022 will be flexible for couples and they do not have to compromise on anything related to their celebration. From hosting an extravagant wedding within your budget to going for an intimate staycation in a popular glamping site for your honeymoon, the sky’s the limit when it comes to wedding planning details of 2022.

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.

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.

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

An article about winter wedding invites will be useless without the emotion of snowflakes and icy blue hues! Soft pastel blues reminiscent of the movie Frozen, sparkles, and snowflake designs are perfect for an ethereal winter wedding invite. Straight out of the fairytales and Disney movies, an icy blue wedding invite steeped in gold and silver will be gorgeous for a white wedding where you are expecting snow! You can add more snowy accents to add to them, whether it is a snowglobe with you and your partner featured in the middle, or a loose snowflake sparkles to add to the magic!

Rustic touches

Rustic theme is something that works gorgeously in all the seasons. However, in the winter months, it works especially well because of the neutral color tones that the rustic wedding theme brings about. Whether it is pine cones or burlap, candle lights and seasonal flowers, the true depiction of the bucolic beauty of the season will never disappoint. Think along the lines of hurricane lanterns, wood fires, and wintry landscapes, and put it down on the paper for a gorgeous winter rustic invite!

Marbled and elegant

There is something about a marbled pattern in the cold winter months that is not only seasonally fitting but also perfect for a minimal winter wedding, as there is a quiet elegance to it which is quite beguiling. Whether it is understated like white and smokey gray, or it is more lively like gold and blue, you can’t really go wrong with a marble design on this winter wedding stationery. It is endlessly elegant and full of class, and says “winter” in an understated and sophisticated way! The best thing about the marbled pattern is that it is completely customizable as per one’s wedding colors!

Bare minimalism

Nothing like the winter months to showcase a landscape that is stripped down to the bare skeletal trees and miles of snow ahead and there is a different area to the bare minimalism that winter brings in. Adorn your winter wedding invites with spidery branches of bare leafless trees and minimalistic accents. Sometimes the honest and true minimalism of the winter months is something that is refreshing for the soul and is appreciated by your wedding guests tremendously. This team can work especially well if you are hosting your wedding in the really cold months of winter.

Black and gold

Is there a color combination that is more classic than black and gold? A festive combo perfect for the festive season, black and gold is a duo that can easily be incorporated in many wedding themes. If you are hosting a minimal winter wedding with classic colors and timeless accents, without compromising on the glam factor, black and gold can be the wedding color combination for you! Not only is it easy to incorporate into our wedding day, but it also goes perfectly well with white and evergreen colors, which seems to be another thing that is favored during these months. Together they will work phenomenally for minimal yet fresh and glam wedding invites.

Watercolor illustrations

What’s more welcoming than a soft, hazy color palette? A soft, hazy palette translated with watercolor paint for your winter wedding! Watercolor invitations are gorgeous and are sure to bring a smile to your guests due to the work put into them! Splash your paper goods with the romantic, whimsical winterscape design, whether it’s a traditional winter scenery or a more specific one, and rest assured your guests will save your invite like a piece of art!

Christmas wreaths

It is hard to stay away from Christmas foliage like frosted greenery, holly leaves, or Christmas wreaths, especially in the festive winter months. Let the festive influences touch your wedding invites by committing to festive greeneries and know that your guests will break into a smile when your Christmas wreath invite reaches them! You don’t essentially have to make it Christmas-themed, just a touch of snowy firs and garlands is enough to bring in some cheer!

Mountainscape

What says winter better than the snow-capped mountains and the whistling pines? Having the mountainscape be a part of your wedding invite is something that will add a chilly and welcoming atmosphere to your wedding day. This is especially fitting if your winter wedding location happens to be wrapped up with tall mountains and gorgeous fir, spruces, and pine trees. There are several mountain scape ideas that you can choose from depending on your specific taste, whether it is actually in the middle of the woods, a snowy paradise perfect for skiing, or a more modern hill town!

Gatsby it up

Bring out the ornate and the opulence with a wedding invite which is formal with gorgeous calligraphy writing, gold foiled design, and is packed with the most gorgeous layers fit for a wedding in the times of Great Gatsby. Whether your style is more vintage dark academia or a royal princess vibe, give your glam wedding the perfect kickstart with a wedding invite that feels like a royal invitation to have tea with the queen! So go for opulent colors with scarlet, royal blue, or purple to make a statement!

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!

While it is easy to label off a wedding as a winter wedding, there are many different nuances that define it. Whether the couple is hosting their wedding in a rural or an urban setting, whether they have planned for a casual or a more formal wedding, whether their personal style is bohemian or vintage, whether they are whimsical or glam, it is just some of the many factors that can influence the choice of their winter wedding invites. Winter is a beautiful time for a couple to celebrate their wedding day, however, winter can look different for different people. This is why the above-mentioned wedding invite ideas are just some of the many out there. You and your partner will find that there are different ways that you can express your wedding day, and the right wedding invite designer will ensure your specific thoughts are emblazoned in the paper in just the perfect way!

The confluence of luscious blue skies, the blue-green sea, the moody blue-gray mountains, and vast green forest lands can make you feel like you have reached where civilization never touched! Teleport yourself to the place of boundless tranquility and beauty that has succeeded to attract artists and philosophers for centuries. Highlighting water bodies of all kinds- from rustic glories like a hike to McWay Falls for an 80-foot waterfall and a light sand-colored beach with dabbling emerald color water to up-to-date luxuries like an infinity hot tub, mountain pools, and Japanese hot baths, this secluded nook in California is a party for the senses, and will rejuvenate you before the big day! It is a recluse tucked among the forest with the view of the most gorgeous and dramatic landscapes on earth.

 

These are just a select few of many glamping options out there, as glamping has come in big and is now preferred by couples, families, and friends. It allows for the outdoorsy feel of real camping but with a generous sprinkling of luxury! If there was ever a time to go big, the wedding day is surely the one. You want to create the best impression, and leave your guests awed and inspired by your choices. From the finest linens on the table, the fanciest of flowers adorning your ceremony arch, there are a lot of ways to impress. However, there is nothing quite like a glamping site with a phenomenal view and the most luxurious of services to form a solid impression, making your wedding the kind that people remember for ages with talks of “remember when” and “wasn’t amazing when”. The definition of luxury has changed a lot over the decades, moving out of luxurious hotel rooms and finely curated menus to exotic locations in the middle of nowhere, with an experience that is more potent than what any hotel room could provide. Whether it is a combined pre-wedding ceremony, a bridal shower trip, or a bachelor trip just for the groom and the groomsmen, we hope our list of glamping sites is received well and with an open heart!

Apart from the blustery weather leaving a bright rosy glow to the newlyweds’ cheeks, wintertime weddings can be utterly magical and romantic, giving a warm sense of togetherness among all the visiting guests. It is this time of the year that provides snowy wedding photo ops and furnishes an enchanting atmosphere that comes together to make a wedding unforgettable. If the roaring log fires,  long-sleeve wedding dresses, holiday wedding details, and the luxe velvety fabrics aren’t and not to scream aesthetically cozy winter wedding details, we also have certain plans and come up with cozy details to keep wedding guests warm.

 

The unplanned snowfall and the festive wedding breakfasts make winter weddings the coziest affairs ever! There are so many winter wedding destinations in the USA that can be perfect for incorporating all your celestial wedding ideas that can look straight from a storybook set amidst winter woods. You can start off your winter wedding planning by choosing one of the best winter wedding locations in the US or even choose your local public park for hosting a winter garden party and transform it into a magical winter-themed fête with your own Pinterest worthy wedding details. In case the weather outside turns downright frightful, there are many creative ways to keep your wedding guests warm during the wedding celebrations. If you are wondering how to keep warm at an outdoor wedding, one of the best ways is to give out luxe favors to your loved ones as thank you gifts that can keep them warm and remember your wedding day fondly for years to come.

 

Here are our favorite winter wedding favors to appreciate wedding guests:

 

Cozy and comfortable blankets 

If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, offer your guests cozy blanket wedding favors so they can stay warm and comfortable during your vows. Offer throw blankets for your guest to use during the wedding celebration in outdoor spaces. If you’re hosting your wedding in wide-open wedding spaces like cideries, breweries, and distilleries during the cold season, the chances are it will be freezing cold outside during your ceremony. So if you offer cozy and comfortable throw blankets to your wedding guests, they will love to curl up under the soft and fluffy fabrics and watch you exchange your wedding vows and take these fluffy goodies home as wedding favors.

 

Knitted or woven gifts

Handwoven gifts will add softness and textures to your overall winter wedding décor aesthetics. Wedding favors like wraps and warm shawls are great to keep your friends and family toasty warm on your wedding day. Gifting wraps or shawls to your guests during winter weddings as keepsakes can be meant to keep warm in the cold weather and turn it into a cozy favor. You can also take it a step ahead and give them personalized wedding favors that will remind them of your special day.

 

Christmas themed favors 

In the case of a destination winter wedding, there are many winter wedding locations around the world to take your pick. A strong nod to the holiday season and festive cheer, Christmas-themed wedding favors add to the wintry spirits of your winter wedding. You can be the Santa at your wedding and hand out small handmade bags and rubber-stamp with “naughty” or “nice” to guests and fill up the former ones with coal-shaped sweet edibles and the latter with peppermint sticks and peppermint-chocolate bark. These holiday-themed wedding favors can also range from chocolate-covered pretzel sticks and warm handheld warm apple pie favors to bell-themed favors for combining Christmas and wedding bells.

 

Comfortable slippers 

Is there any other warm feeling than slipping into a pair of warm and fluffy slippers on a cold winter day? One of our favorite warm winter wedding ideas when it comes to choosing wedding favors is to hand out soft and comfortable slippers to your guests at the end of a long day, especially after winter wonderland weddings. Gifting cozy and comfortable slippers can be a great idea for thanking your guest and can also be a thoughtful winter wedding favor.

 

Give hand warmers and socks 

Your guests might don a jacket or shawl but you never know when someone misplaces their gloves. Just like comfortable and fuzzy slippers, hand warmers and socks can be very thoughtful wedding favors for winter celebrations. Keeping in mind the cold winter nights, your friends and family can put them on during the celebration if they get cold and also take them home for future use. Gifting hand warmers and socks as part of your unique winter wedding ideas is a great way to spread warmth during the chilly winter season. Hand warmers and socks will come in handy all throughout winter. Wonderful hand warmers will definitely make sure that their hands are warm the entire time. This useful winter wedding favor is something your guests will be grateful for and use in the coming days of the winter season. You can always put your creative cap on and wrap some premium quality warmers in festive fabric and attach a cute, personalized note to turn them into beautiful details that can transform your wedding.

 

Candle wedding favors 

Candles and winter weddings go hand in hand. Apart from being a significant part of winter wedding decoration ideas, candles are a staple of the chilly season. For all the lovers of cozy and warm wedding details, hand out candles as modern wedding favors for your winter celebrations. Adorn pine cone scented soy candles with beautifully crafted holiday tags and personalized messages or pair spicy and warm scented candles with personalized matchbooks for a little extra flair so that your guests go home feeling cozy and loved. You can also paint the candles and celebrate your choice of winter wedding colors or add richly brewed coffee fragrance as your way to host a Parisian-themed wedding that looks and smells straight out of a French storybook.

 

Chocolate baskets 

Edible wedding favors can be really great for winter wonderland wedding reception ideas. You can never go wrong with chocolate baskets! Apart from being great for your winter wedding decorations, arranging assorted chocolate baskets by setting up a gorgeous chocolate station can be a glamorous wedding idea and make for a yummy gift treat. Just like winter brings a festive share, chocolate baskets can be a trip down the nostalgic lane as everyone loves to indulge in cocoa and mocha. They are absolutely lovely wintery flavors and can be gifted as wedding favors to your guests.

 

Hot chocolate spoons 

The way to the heart is through the stomach. Or at least that’s what they say! Another edible wedding thank you gift idea that can look great on your winter wedding table decorations are hot chocolate spoons. Your guests will love a warm mug of hot chocolate when they first arrive at your venue or during the post-ceremony reception. You can add dark rum and honey if you want to serve an alcoholic version. It will not only be a great winter wedding favor idea, but the smell of hot cocoa can scentscape your wedding with its dark and rich smell!

 

Firestarters

Apart from being elegant wedding favors, candles shaped like pine cones and adorable pinecone firestarter wedding favors can feel as if you are giving your guests a cozy night by the roaring fireplace. For an additional feel-good factor choose the best one out of wedding venues with fireplaces! You can wrap up the ornaments with chevron paper, twine, and a piece of pine for this wedding. Gather some pine cones and wax, and create your own DIY wedding favor by packing these ensembles with personalized tags and satin ribbons. Your guests can light the wicks and relax by the warm and cozy fire on a chilly night of winter and remember your wedding day fondly days or even years later.

 

Mini boozy treats 

Winter weddings can be the perfect excuse to have brandy, rum, and whisky on your cocktail menu without getting smirked! Also, a steaming glass of spiced mulled wine is the perfect way to keep your wedding guests warm at a winter wedding. And this way mini alcohol treats serve as a great winter wedding favor option. Since alcohol can warm your guests and let them slip into ease, handing out mini boozy treats can make sure that they are comfortable and warm even after they leave the party with warm portable drink options. You can go overboard and create an over-the-top wedding idea by incorporating custom packaging and adding your own personal touch to the wedding thank you gifts.

 

Seasonal lip balms 

Your guests are going to love lip balms and they’d be sure to take one for the entire day! Winters can dry lips and leave them chapped which can ruin a long prepared wedding look. Giving out lip balms on winter weddings can keep your guests’ lips hydrated and plump. You can try out different flavors to choose from and pick out your favorite winter flavors like peppermint or chocolate, or even present an assortment of options for your guests to pick at your wedding.

 

Tea or coffee blends 

At the end of a late winter wedding, your friends and family will love thoughtfully prepared packages of tea and coffee blends, especially after a night full of wild partying! Since the world is divided between coffee and tea lovers and winters are for both you can make the tea and coffee drinking experience a little better by giving out small customized tea and coffee blends as winter wedding favors. Coffee and tea in goodie bags are simple winter wedding favors that your guests are going to appreciate the morning after your late-night reception as there is nothing like a soothing cup of warm beverage on a cold day!

 

Personalized gifts for your wedding party

 

Personalized wedding favors go a long way to say that you care, especially to your wedding party who has been holding down the fort for you two since day one! Personalized winter wedding favors can express the gratitude and love you have for them. For instance, gifting personalized alcohol flasks to your groomsmen with their initials on them and cute personalized flasks adorned with the names of your bridesmaids can be the perfect pampering gifts for your wedding parties on both sides. Similarly, you can also gift coffee mugs with personalized details like name tags or engraved initials as a welcoming touch at your wedding and let each guest grab a mug of coffee and take home a special wedding favor mug for many years of coffee enjoyment. A wind stopper is another super useful winter wedding favor that can be personalized and can surprise your wedding party, especially in a typical winter style like a snowflake or antler design.

 

Winter wedding favors are the perfect way to express your gratitude and appreciation for everyone visiting your big day and make it even more special with their warm presence. These thoughtful wedding gifts can be the perfect addition to all kinds of winter wonderland wedding venues. Moreover, to keep your guests warm and comfortable during your cold-weather celebration, stock up your wedding venue with blankets, wraps, mittens, or scarves that guests can use during the party and take home at the end of the night. Make sure to warm up the indoor spaces of your wedding venue and limit outdoor celebration time. This however means that you can always get married in a snowy backdrop, but move the celebration indoors for the rest of the evening once the ceremony is over.

 

Serve piping hot drinks and beverages like mulled wine, hot chocolate, or warm apple cider, as part of your outdoor winter wedding ideas to combat the freezing temperatures. Also, there are many winter wedding venues that come with roaring indoor fireplaces! These winter wedding venues can be perfect to create a cozy lodge atmosphere with lighting fire flames during your winter wedding reception.
