Christmas Themed Wedding Ideas:

  • Fake snow lining the aisle (pillow insert cotton could be useful for this!)
  • Ornament wedding favors (these could be regular round ornaments or you can have shaped ones like snowflakes, pinecones, etc.!)
  • Christmas trees on either side of the altar. Or small ones lining the aisles!
  • Lots of greenery
  • Ribbon and bows of your color! Maybe even velvet!
  • Deep red and forest green colors OR frosty white and blue!
  • Gingerbread house activity for the kids table. This could also be cookie decorating or letters to Santa etc!
  • Poinsettias make for a beautiful Christmas flower!
  • Large nutcracker (or other!) figures at the entrance of the venue when guests walk in!
  • Frosted tree branches as centerpieces!
  • Bride & Groom (or bridal party) entrance can be started with the magical sound of Santa’s bells!
  • Snowflake decor (centerpieces, favors, cake design etc.!)
  • Reindeer figures in centerpieces!
  • MUSIC: Choose Christmas themed songs to walk down the aisle to/playing while guests wait/during cocktail hour/dinner etc.!

Christmas Themed Wedding Ideas:

  • Lanterns! Whichever accent color you choose, lanterns are a beautiful piece to add to your decor!
  • Pinecones placed in your greenery! (Bouquet, centerpiece, ceremony arrangements, boutonnières, etc.)
  • Photo shoot with Santa! Many people have a Photo Booth or station at their wedding, how unique would it be to invite Santa there too!
  • Hot chocolate bar! This could be a signature drink, or a fun station off to the side. You can even have a spiked version!
  • Placing a mistletoe at the altar for when you share your first kiss as a married couple!
  • Themed name cards (pinecones, wooden ornaments, snowflakes, present boxes, etc!)
  • Gingerbread men cookie favors! If you’re going for a more edible favor, Christmas cookies would be super cute!
  • Snow globe snowflake guest book! Having your guests write their names on snowflakes and putting it inside a globe. You’ll forever have the most beautiful and meaningful Christmas decoration! We found this one on Etsy that we think you’d love!
  • Fake snow confetti while exiting the ceremony! These could also be small white rose petals that look like snow flurries in photos!
  • Garland & wreaths with lights anywhere possible!!
  • Christmas cookie dessert bar! If you Choose to do a dessert bar, Christmas cookies or mini gingerbread houses are such a cute idea.
