‘Tis the season to be jolly. And couples are capitalising on the festive spirit of the Christmas season as the ideal time to tie the knot. Traditionally a time when family and friends gather together to eat, drink and be grateful, Christmas provides the perfect foundation to say, “I do.”
For couples looking to make it official during the festive season, we show you how to incorporate tasteful, Christmas-inspired ideas into various elements of your big day.
Christmas Colour Schemes
We all know the traditional Christmas colour palette is a heady mix of reds and greens. We even steal from the historical Christmas vision of a snow-drenched scene to heavy-handedly utilise whites, creams and ivory tones throughout the reception.
For a modern twist on the classic Christmas theming, think cream backdrops accented with silvers and golds for maximum shimmer and shine. Punctuate this metallic landscape with bursts of contrast that highlight the Christmas connection — bright red heels, ruby lips, crimson bridesmaid dresses and scarlet boutonnieres.
For those that want to stick closer to home, incorporate some of the Australian Christmas spirit into your nuptial celebrations by including rustic details and decorations such as wooden wedding invites featuring custom designs at no extra cost. In addition, use native florals including Christmas Bush, Proteas and leafy greens in your décor and bouquets.
Festive Wedding Favours and Divine Décor
As we mentioned earlier, it is the season to be jolly and that’s just what Christmas weddings are all about. The perfect gift for members of your bridal party or even bombonieres for your guests is the gift that keeps on giving — Engraved Christmas Shot Glasses. Inscribe them with a personal message or details of your special day and no doubt recipients will feel warm and fuzzy every time they use them.
Speaking of warm and fuzzy, light the love throughout your wedding reception by featuring Palm Wax Scented Candles with Personalised Gift Tags that double as festive wedding favours. Guests will be treated to that warm Christmas glow both at the wedding and beyond.
Doubling up with multi-purpose wedding elements is the key to maximising your festive season wedding budget, as we are all aware that Christmas is an expensive time of year. Ideas such as using place cards that double as wedding favours will help you save money and impress your guests.
Celebrating Your First Christmas as Husband and Wife
Getting married in the festive season means that your first Christmas as husband and wife will come around much sooner than most. This is as good a reason as any to celebrate your newly acquired marital status and toast the beginning of a long and happy life together.
Make this a truly special occasion by toasting with a personalised Engraved Christmas Mr and Mrs Champagne Glass Set. Professionally laser engraved, with “Our First Christmas,” alongside your last name and wedding date, this commemorative set will toast the festive season and the many happy memories it brings for years to come.
