So you want a holiday wedding, but you don’t want it decorated with ornaments and gift wrap. I understand the struggle! (Keep reading for some winter wedding inspiration!)
I feel like when someone says “holiday wedding” or “christmas wedding” we automatically jump to christmas trees, snowmen, presents, and mistletoes. Now if that’s your vibe, I 100% love that for you! But not every couple wants a holiday wedding to be so over the top… and that’s ok too!
There are so many ways to elevate a holiday wedding, while still keeping it classy and of course, eclectic!
There are two main color palettes that immediately come to mind when thinking about a winter holiday wedding. The first is red and green, and the other is blue and white. So let’s take these color palettes, and turn them into something that’s outside of the box!
This first option is a cool blue color palette that instantly gets you dreaming of snow. I’m talking winter wonderland meets luxe dinner party! This design utilizes lots of hanging fixtures and florals, to give a winter wonderland effect. The flowers will range from blue hues such as orchids and tulips, alongside some traditional greenery and white roses.
All guest tables will have a collection of white ceramic bauble bud vase collection + black LED candles in brass candle holders. I love utilizing candlesticks when shooting for a vintage vibe! For the ceremony installations, I’d go heavy on the greenery, and light on the blues. This way, if you choose to put your bridal party in blue you don’t have to worry about anything clashing or blending in!
Now this set up won’t involve santa, but it will follow a more traditional holiday color palette… with a twist!
Traditional wreaths, velvet fabrics, and red ribbons, and candelabras will take the stage in this design. But the secret weapon I’m most excited for? The mushrooms! Mushrooms play a critical part in the winter solstice, and they totally elevate this simple holiday set up.
When choosing the flowers for this design, the chunkier blooms the better! Different color roses along with a pop of greenery really take this set up over the top. Now for the tables… that’s where I’m going a little traditional! I’m a firm believer that you can never go wrong with garland during the holidays, and it just so happens to make the perfect table runner. Add in some LED candles and mixed with vases of assorted amaryllis and it’s *chefs kiss*.
All in all, holiday weddings don’t have to be boring and cheesy. Take it from me – you can have the best of both worlds! I hope this blog gives you the winter wedding inspiration you’ve been looking for.
