Red and green are obvious color choices for a Christmas themed wedding. Most likely your preferred church or reception site will already be decorated in these colors during the Christmas month. However, if you would rather work with a different color palette, there are many options to choose to from. Other possibilities, which work great with existing Christmas decorations include- white and silver, light blue and silver, gold and cream. If you are looking for a festive color scheme but with an elegant touch, white and golden is always a safe bet.
You want your wedding invitations to reflect the theme of your wedding, but you certainly don’t want it to look like a holiday card. The solution? Instead of a folded card, opt for a traditional thick white invitation card. Highlight the Christmas theme in the border with snowflakes, beautiful holy trim, or some other Christmas symbols.

For a Christmas themed wedding, decorations can be anything related to the holiday. A tree may already be up at the banquet hall or the reception room that you book for your big day. If not, you can always provide your own. For bridesmaid bouquets, consider holly or pine with red berries. Poinsettias and garland around the altar along with the unity candle can take care of the church decorations. To create centerpieces, buy Christmas ornaments in bulk and place them in bowls or vases. Instead of an aisle runner, consider using fake snow. If the budget allows, hire a snow-making machine to make your Christmas wedding a perfect winter wonderland.
The Bridal Wear
A Christmas wedding dress need not be anything different from the usual. Wear the one of your choice, and simply top it up with a long red Christmas cap. Or adorn your wedding outfit by adding a beautiful red/green silk sash to the waist of your gown. And of course, a faux fur muffler or a warp is always fun.
Weddings and Christmas both are the times of celebration when friends and families come together. When planning a Christmas themed wedding, simply consider things you love about the holiday and try to incorporate those elements into your wedding.
