Give your winter wedding some sparkle with these fabulous theme ideas…christmas-winter-wedding

Christmas theme

Having a wedding in December is the perfect time to merge these two fantastic celebrations together.

If you’re thinking about a Christmas wedding theme, reds and greens are the festive colours of choice. We’ve seen some real brides go for a ruby wedding dress but if a coloured wedding dress isn’t your thing, add a splash of colour with a 1950s styled coloured underskirt.

Add some finishing touches to your Christmas wedding by adding holly wreaths around the venue, use them for table centre decorations and place them on doors.

Surprise your guests and recreate Christmas morning with favours wrapped up as mini Christmas presents.

Having a Christmas wedding means you also have lots of options for table naming. Some ideas include naming your tables after Santa’s reindeers, the 12 days of Christmas, Christmas pop songs or Christmas movies.

Snow Queen

Elegant and chic, nothing says “winter wedding” more than an all white wedding theme. It’s a classic style that will never age.

Create a winter wonderland with snowflake table places and capture the sparkle of snow by incorporating crystals into your floral pieces, white roses, lilies and orchids are perfect for white floral decorations.

If you want the Snow Queen look but think all white is too plain and not your thing, incorporate blues and cold pastel colours into your scheme to break up the white.


Having a winter wedding means you can be more creative with your colour palette. Add metallic shades for a rich and glamorous look.

Wow your guests with a stunning silver wedding cake or bring your bridal look together with copper and gold accessories. We love the idea of having a copper coloured birdcage veil.


Black and White

Add some 1950s Hollywood glamour to your winter wedding with a black and white contrasting wedding theme. During the wedding reception contrast a black table cloth with white chair covers and white table centre decorations.

These days buying a tuxedo doesn’t cost the world, so get your groom to invest in a good tuxedo and he can feel like James Bond for the day.

Berries and twigs

Sticks and twigs from willow trees are durable and look amazing. Spray paint them silver and create a whimsical wishing tree that won’t break the budget.

Add some seasonal plants and fruit to your floral decorations such as red winterberries, mistletoe and snowberries. These will look great contrasted with white blooms.
