Planning a wedding near Christmas? Would you like to
keep with the spirit by having a Christmas Theme
Wedding? Here are some great Christmas wedding ideas
to have the perfect Christmas Wedding.
First, you gotta have Christmas lights! Decorate your
church or ceremony location with white lights and tulle
- the perfect Christmas wedding idea for a snowy,
romantic effect. Many churches will already have
Christmas trees up in their sanctuaries, so you won't
even need to provide much more in decorations.
If it fits within your budget, hang wreaths on a couple
of pews or at the end of a row of chairs. You can even
make these wreaths yourself (watch for our next
newsletter on a great Christmas wedding idea -
decorating Christmas wreaths to double as
pew and table decorations).
Choose a ceremony location with a fireplace (or make a
fake fireplace using a large piece of paper and drawing
a fireplace on it) and hang stockings with all of the
names of your bridal party on them. Place a special
Christmas gift of thanks for each of them in their
For wedding favors with a Christmas theme, give out
Christmas ornaments. You can make these, buy them, or
even have your guests make them right at your wedding
as a fun activity!
Place wreaths in the center of each table with a candle
in the middle of them as table decorations. For an
aromatic effect, choose pine smelling candles or
another smell that you associate with Christmas.

wedding idea - decorating Christmas wreaths to double

If you have a lot of children attending your reception,
arrange for a special visit from Santa Claus. Santa
can give each child a candy cane and ask them what they
want for Christmas. Make sure your photographer knows
about this or have someone take a Polaroid of each
child on Santa's lap.
After dinner, sing Christmas carols together. Make
sure to have someone well-versed in Christmas carols
available to play requests on the piano and have books
available for your guests to sing from.
Later in the evening, offer Christmas cookies and hot
chocolate or eggnog for your guests to warm up to. Or, make lots
of cut-out cookies ahead of time, along with red,
white, and green frosting. Then, allow your guests to
decorate their own Christmas cookies to eat or take
home (this could be a less-expensive Christmas wedding
favor idea than Christmas ornaments) - don't forget the
sprinkles, jimmies, red hot candies, etc.
Finally, surprise your fiance by arranging for a horse-
drawn sleigh to pick you up and whisk you away.
