Gone are the days when couples rarely married in the winter. Many couples now prefer the magic of a wedding in the colder months, especially around Christmas. For wonderful Christmas wedding styling add lots of sparkle, cosy details and tonnes of seasonal greenery…

Contemporary Sparkle

For a touch of glamour mixed with modern sparkle, ghost chairs are perfect for a Christmas wedding. They are see-through, which creates a wintry ice and shine effect. You could mix and match your chairs to create an alternative look.

Scandi and Nordic

All things Scandinavian scream Christmas. Combine this with the Nordic Christmas look by choosing rustic naked wood tables. You can then use simple decorations such as lots and lots of small candles to cast a warm glow over the natural wood. Less is more when it comes to Scandi and Nordic décor.

Cosy Up

Adding sheepskins and thick knitted or faux fur throws to inflatable sofas creates a tactile chill out area. Not only will the throws look wonderful, guests can use them to warm themselves if the evening gets a little chilly.

Christmas Colours

Keep your Christmas wedding colour scheme simple. Use greens, silver and white to complement the natural wood, sheepskins and faux furs.

Romantic Lighting

Don’t forget to decorate smaller details such as coffee tables and sideboards at your venue to continue your Christmas wedding styling throughout. Add lanterns for a touch of soft, romantic lighting, and combine with apothecary jars filled with seasonal fruits and berries for added colour.

Forest Greenery

A Christmas wedding wouldn’t be complete without bundles of forest greenery. Bring the winter forest inside with boughs of fir, sprigs of holly and, not forgetting, lots of mistletoe!

Candles – Lots of Candles

The great thing about a Christmas wedding is that candles are perfect for decorating and adding lighting. Although simple, adding more candles and lanterns to your reception tables will only enhance your Christmas wedding styling.

Log Fires

Don’t forget to make use of outside areas too. You can create a festive feel by using Swedish fire logs to light the way to your venue. Surround these with candles in hurricane vases for some added décor.

Finally, why not add rustic seating around a fire pit and supply your guests with marshmallows to toast and mulled wine to warm them up?
