Christmas Wedding Colors: Forget the Red, Green and White

Unless you want your reception tables to look all white, red and green, these winter wedding colors will definitely wow your guests.

If you are after that coveted Christmas wedding season glam, go for colors and textures that are rich and luxurious. Add dark moody and jeweled tones to your napkins and candles. The latest trend is all about tall tapered ultra dark blue or black candles.

Switch the traditional white for Pantone’s Almost Mauve, it will look incredible on your tablecloths. If you want something more conventional try some shades of gray, natural linen, or antique white. They will make for subtle supporting colors to a white wonderland table decor.

Christmas Wedding Ideas: Venue Decor

An extensive array of candlelights and lanterns will create a romantic yet festive atmosphere. Even tealights placed in mason jars sing songs of a quaint but bucolic look. Nevertheless, be sure to check with the venue first. Opt for battery-powered substitutes if they have a “no open flame” policy. Plus the shimmering lighting, a glitter explosion can give your winter wedding decor that extra fancy look.

Adorn baubles and tinsel on garlands and trees for a twinkling effect. Just don’t go overboard. Sweep a staircase or a fireplace with greenery garlands to highlight your venue’s features.

For outdoor weddings, take advantage of the crisp colors of the winter landscape and welcome your guests in style.

Winter Florals for Christmas Weddings

Floral fragrances and beautiful colors aren’t just for summer weddings. An opulent winter wedding floral arrangement can be warm and add grandeur to this truly magical event. Moody colors are “in” and they are perfect for Christmas weddings.

Dark red roses will help you achieve a classic and timeless look. And for a crisp wintry feel, white roses or baby’s breath will do. Use them on floral arrangements or on your bridal bouquet.

But the traditional red and white palette shouldn’t be a constraint; berry hues or Pantone’s Ultra Violet can be equally magical. White flowers with deep moody accents can bring magic to your winter nuptials.

Try some mistletoe above the altar for your symbolic Christmas wedding kiss.

Winter Wedding Ideas to Style your Reception Tables

Make your reception tables glow with gilded mirrors and gold hurricane vases. For a natural texture wintery feel, try garlands of greenery with blue shades of evergreens and eucalyptus as table runners.

Try decorating your place cards with single sprigs of fir and pinecones. Also, wintery branches and berries can be used to complement the table-settings at your Christmas wedding.

For a low-key but festive shindig, tie ribbons and evergreen boughs to the bride and groom chairs, it will hold some seasonal appeal.

Here’s another centerpiece you can craft in minutes. Get some mercury glass votives from the thrift store. When used delicately enough, votive candleholders and metallic vases, along with a touch of glitter, can become a breathtakingly shimmery setup.

Winter Weddings Are Trending Amongst Millennials

It’s no news that millennials are breaking the mold and shifting from the traditional spring and summer weddings. They are tired of drab, expensive weddings littered on their social media feeds. Of course, millennials are smart trendsetters. And what says “trendy and smart” like unforgettable winter wedding ideas for couples on a budget? An out-of-the-box experience!

Affordable Winter Wedding Ideas that will Drop your Socks Off

Here are a few creative winter wedding ideas that won’t do a number on your wallets. Candles are all the rage during the holidays and if you wrap them in cinnamon sticks they will smell amazing—but should only be used as effects. However, because of a fire hazard, many venues don’t accept open flame decor. Make sure you check first.

A scattering of “snowy” pine branches and pinecones may also do wonders to your tablescape. Leverage poinsettias, holly, and other astonishing florals like perfectly opened amaryllis blossoms or hydrangeas that are in season to save some cash. Forget summer or spring flower decor and bring out the mistletoe! Have your guests share in the the kissing fun!

Visit your local nursery for evergreen cuttings and branches. Who knows? Friends and neighbors may donate winterberries and evergreens from their own backyard to the happy couple!

Alternative Winter Wedding Ideas

If you had enough of the Christmassy winter wedding ideas, go super upscale with a black and white wedding or introduce cozy blankets, scarfs and faux-furs! Leave the greenery outside and bring in iced branches with lots of bling. Better yet, use real or fake snow on your photos. You won’t regret it!

Another fantastic idea I personally love are beach weddings in the wintertime. They are way affordable and, depending on the time of year, there aren’t many tourists to crowd your pictures!

What to Serve at a Winter Wedding?

Also, winter is perfect for heavy meals and alcohol. And nothing says warm tummies more than a chocolate bar at a winter wedding! Present your guests with cookies, cakes, fig pies, mulled cider, marshmallows and a variety of chocolates, coffees and teas.

Cold weather is also a great excuse to indulge on some extra calories the foodie way. How does baked brie with rosemary, honey and candied walnuts sound? Maybe it’s time to bring in comfort foods like a creamy roasted tomato basil soup paired with butternut squash and spinach lasagna. Definitely original and on fleek.

24 Ingenious Ways To Make Candle & Lighted Centerpieces for Wedding Receptions

Check out these creative and affordable ideas to make candle and lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions. Light up your centerpieces to take them to an entirely new level!

An ingenious way to make candle & lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions. Food coloring and floating candles plus dollar store flowers and LED lights.

An ingenious way to make candle & lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions. Food coloring and floating candles plus dollar store flowers and LED lights.

Savvy brides know that stretching a wedding budget means having to DIY a few ceremony details. Nothing is easier to make and has a more stunning effect than lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions. Let’s grab a hold of a few candles, LED lights, glow-sticks, florals and water and create lighted centerpieces that will rock your wedding! Read this!

How to Pick your Lighted Centerpieces for Wedding Receptions: This is What Professionals Do

First things first. Make sure the lighted centerpieces are a match for the wedding venue and your taste and budget. Don’t fall in love with candlelight asking your ceremony and reception locations if they allow real candles or not! (But don’t despair! You just may have to opt for flameless candles.) Or with those romantic string market lights wrapped over your outdoor tables if the venue does not have enough electrical outlets – or they are too far apart – to achieve the look without shelling out beaucoup des bucks on a custom electrical installation.

If you plan on DIYing your entire wedding, try to avoid flowers for the centerpieces. You will not have enough time to make them all and have them look perfect in the few days before the wedding. Prepare them well in advance so you don’t have to worry and you can make a couple of them as practice. Test their wow factor by hosting a small dinner at home and show off your lighted centerpieces – but don’t fish for compliments. 😉

Pin spots are tiny beams of light to illuminate centerpieces, wedding cakes, etc. If your centerpiece primarily consists of candles or lights, pin spots aren’t necessary. So, there’s a little additional savings associated with picking lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions!

How To Make Your Lighted Centerpieces Look Like A Million Bucks with LED Lighting

Durable and compact, LED lights have paved the way for creative lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions. These stunningly affordable LED centerpiece ideas can inject a new dimension to your wedding decor that your guests will surely enjoy.

So, what is LED light? Short for “light-emitting diode,” these LED lights are more energy-efficient than regular lightbulbs and they don’t get as hot. They can also be wireless, which makes them even more discreet. LED lights are great for color changes and vibrant hues and when added to floral arrangements for luminous stems they will double as décor and mood lighting. You can buy them at the Home Depot, Amazon or at any light fixture store near you.

Create a tall and unique LED lighted centerpiece with luminous branches. Embed the LEDs at the ends of the branches to create a discreet lighting effect. Another idea is to glue crepe paper flowers to the branch creating the illusion of illuminated cherry blossoms. And don’t forget to have some fun with ’90s-style glow sticks! 🙂

Fantastic Lighted Floral Centerpieces with Water

Add a stunning glow of light to your table decor with lighted floral centerpieces immersed in water. Use the flowers to hide the submersible battery LED lights. Place the light at the bottom of the vase to illuminate the flowers above. You can then place a floating candle on top of the vase. Our advice: use table mirrors that you place under your vases to create reflections in your decor.

If you have chosen flowers with long stems, pick a tall cylindrical clear container, place a submersible led light at the bottom and cover it with fake crystals. The light will highlight the curve of the flower and create an original centerpiece.
