Christmas is a very special time for many people, with festive cheer reigning supreme. If you are engaged and have been trying to decide what time of the year to get married, consider having a Christmas wedding. There are many great things about having a ceremony at this time of year, and here are just a few to get you excited.
The most important thing for any bride is the wedding dress, and if you get married at Christmas time you can incorporate some of the theme into your special outfit. Your fiancé has already spent time looking at engagement rings and now it is your turn to shop around. The winter weather gives you a great opportunity to wear a gorgeous wedding wrap or coat, that can add interest and class to your outfit. For the bridesmaids’ dresses and the men’s cravats, you have a ready-made theme. Golds and reds are lovely, festive, warm colours and will make your day feel extra special.
This theme of festive cheer can continue on to the reception, where the hall could be decked out with holly and ivy, golds and reds. This type of décor instils an atmosphere of festivity in people, no matter where they are and this will ensure that everyone has a great time at your reception.
If you are having a religious ceremony, then you have the perfect singing material, carols. You can guarantee that your guests will know the words and everyone will have a great time singing along. You may even want to decorate the church with candles, which can make the ceremony so much more romantic and intimate.
If you are lucky, it will snow on your wedding day which will give you the perfect opportunity to have some spectacular, if a little chilly, photographs taken of you and your wedding party. Even if it doesn’t snow, the atmosphere of the festive season will surround you all and ensure that your day is perfect.
