10 WAYS TO ADD FESTIVE GLAMOUR TO YOUR WINTER WEDDING
Dressing your wedding venue; from mistletoe to mince pies and more
If you plan on getting married around Christmas time, why not add a touch of festive glamour to your special day?
The team at your chosen wedding venue should be able to advise you when it comes to what you are, and are not, allowed to do, but just to give you some ideas, we’ve come up with ten ways you can add a festive personality to your wedding day.
10 unique ideas for your Christmas wedding
Mistletoe is a must
Enhance the romance at your ceremony by having mistletoe hanging above you at the altar, so that when you have that first kiss as a married couple, you’ll be stood in the perfect position.
Speak to your florist and see if it’s possible to carry a bouquet based around a winter berry theme. This is a beautiful way to kick-start your winter wedding and, if you’re able to dry it out after the wedding, it could be an item to keep and bring out every year at Christmas time.
Serve mulled wine
Instead of serving traditional fizz right after your ceremony, why not celebrate with mulled wine? Your guests will love the warm, festive aromas and this could be the ultimate introduction to your winter wedding reception.
Christmas stocking themed table plan
Hang a garland of stockings along a wonderful wintry fireplace, as we have at Cain Manor. Alternatively, a nativity themed wedding table plan could be a nice idea? Nativity table name ideas include The North Star, Three Wise Men, The Manger, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, The Donkey, and The Stable!
Bauble place names
Place a personalised bauble to each table setting for your wedding reception in order to add a touch of festive colour when your wedding breakfast is revealed.
Red poinsettia centre piece
Rather than a vase of flowers or a tall candelabra, think about festive poinsettia plants in gold or silver plant pots to bring out the true colours of Christmas. Another fun idea is to place a potted table-top Christmas tree in the centre of each table with wrapped present favours for your guests.
