Congratulations, you're having a holiday wedding! What could be more exciting
than incorporating the theme of Christmas into your wedding? Here
are some great ideas to make your Christmas Wedding full of the
spirit of the season!
First, a great way to let your guests know ahead of time that
your wedding will have a holiday theme is by incorporating the
theme in your invitations. Emboss your lettering in red, or choose
an invitation with a picture of a Christmas or winter scene on
Then, invite your guests to view your wedding website - also with
a Christmas theme! Your guests will have a lot of fun reading
about how you met, taking your quiz, signing your guestbook, looking

to share the romance of the day with your guests. Decorate with
white Christmas lights, garland, and spruce trees. Place pine
or cinnamon smelling potpourri in the lobby or place Christmas-smelling
candles on tables. Give Christmas-themed favors to your guests
- like, tiny stockings with a candy cane in them, or a small wrapped
box with chocolate or candy inside. Or, make
ornaments for your guests to take home and hang on their tree
to remember your wedding by.
During the reception, you can also play Christmas music, or ask
your guests to sing their favorite carol to get you to kiss (instead
of glass-clanking). Have Santa Claus visit for the children and
give them a small gift. Offer Christmas cookies as a late night
snack or place candy canes around the room for people to snack
on. You could even ask some of your outgoing friends or relatives
to reenact the birth story of Jesus.
Whatever you do, make it fun! Enjoy your Christmas wedding! Your
guests are going to have a wonderful time!
