Christmas WeddingThe holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate, and a Christmas themed wedding can add even more joy to this special season. Whether you want a casual, whimsical wedding or a more elegant holiday affair, there are many ways to include a Christmas theme in your wedding plans.

Why Wed at Christmas

Christmas time is perfect for a wedding. Not only it is a joyous season, but many wedding venues consider the winter months the ‘off season’ and may offer substantially reduced rates for catering, equipment rentals, and other necessities. The closer the wedding date is to the actual Christmas holiday, however, the higher costs may be as weddings can compete with holiday parties and other seasonal events.

Another benefit to Christmas weddings is the decor. Many halls, churches, temples and other ideal locations will already be decorated with lights, garlands, and other accents, making wedding decorations less necessary. Couples should be aware, however, that if their wedding location is heavily decorated for the holiday, they may be unable to personalize those decorations.

Problems With Christmas Weddings

While the holidays may seem like a natural time for one more joyous celebration, Christmas weddings can also have problems. Winter weather is unpredictable and if there are many guests who need to travel to the celebration, an untimely storm can prevent their attendance.

Couples should also be aware that many of their prospective guests may have their own holiday traditions to celebrate and could be unwilling to interrupt them for a wedding, even for a close friend or another family member. Scheduling a wedding close to Christmas may be seen as inconsiderate and adding to guests’ expenses, as travel during the holiday season is inevitably more costly.

If a couple carefully considers these potential problems and wants to plan a perfect Christmas wedding, there are many wonderful options to choose from for every part of the event.

Ideas for a Christmas Themed Wedding

Not all Christmas wedding themes are the same, and couples have many unique and lovely choices to consider. Choosing one overall winter wedding theme can make the planning easier, and popular Christmas themes include:

- Red and Green: These classic Christmas colors are always popular for holiday weddings and can be found in a variety of shades, from ruby and emerald jewel tones to more muted burgundy and hunter green hues.

- White Christmas: An all white wedding theme is perfect for winter and can be a nostalgic and romantic choice for a Christmas wedding.

- Victorian Christmas: Adding a vintage flair to your event with Victorian decorations is a great way to have a unique holiday wedding.

= Claus Couple: Mr. and Mrs. Claus are the perfect Christmas couple that can be used as part of the wedding decorations for a whimsical touch.


Christmas wedding invitations can be customized holiday cards or any winter wedding invitation with embossed snowflakes, a pair of jingle bells, or a classic winter scene. An enveloped lined with red or green adds a luxury touch to the invitation.


Attire for a Christmas wedding should reflect the season with dresses heavier fabrics such as brocades, velvet, and satin. Fur trim is popular, and many Christmas brides choose a white, fur-lined cape as well. White tuxedos are popular, and bridesmaids may carry fur muffs instead of flowers.


Poinsettias are an obvious flower choice for a Christmas themed wedding, but equally elegant choices include red and white roses or holly used instead of ivy or other greenery. Small sprigs of pine can be used as filler for bouquets or centerpieces, and a flower girl could carry a kissing ball of mistletoe instead of rose petals.

Holiday centerpieces can be simple.


Lighted trees, candles, and garlands are perfect Christmas wedding decorations, but equally gorgeous are centerpieces of pine boughs and glass ornaments, miniature decorated trees, gingerbread houses, or candy cane bouquets. Fake snow can be used as an aisle runner or part of a centerpiece, and a holiday hearth backdrop is perfect for the altar or head table.


A Christmas wedding menu will often feature a traditional ham or turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Additional treats may include a wedding coffee bar, a selection of hot cocoas, eggnog, gingerbread, sugar cookies, and mulled wine or hot cider.

Wedding Cake

Winter wedding cakes are elegant, and an all white cake or a cake shaped like wrapped packages is the perfect choice. Red velvet cakes can coordinate with seasonal colors, and a chocolate peppermint cake is a unique flavor choice. Snowflake wedding cakes are also popular for Christmas weddings, or a couple may choose a sleigh wedding cake stand or a Claus couple wedding cake top for more seasonal touches.

Classic wedding music can give way to Christmas carols for a holiday wedding. Romantic carols such as “White Christmas” can be perfect for a first dance, and a talented wedding band or singer may be able to improvise lyrics to personalize the tune for a specific couple.

Wedding Favors

Personalized ornaments, decorated cookies, mints, candy canes, and cocoas are popular winter wedding favors. Miniature stockings, mittens, and small gingerbread houses are other Christmas themed options.
Christmas in July

For a very unique Christmas theme, opt for a Christmas in July motif for a beach wedding or just to add a tropical touch to a winter celebration. Choose tropical flowers, bright colors, and Caribbean carols for the event, and decorate palm trees for a fun backdrop.

A Christmas themed wedding is a great way to celebrate the holidays with elegance and romance. From classic holiday colors to traditional menus to personalized carols, there are many ways to create a wonderfully memorable holiday season and a happy anniversary date all at once.
