So what better holiday to center your big day around with colors of red and green or sparkling colors of silver and gold.

Christmas Wedding save the Date...

How much fun would it be to take engagement photos for your Christmas wedding at a Christmas tree farm and send them out as Save the Dates! I love the idea of running around and picking out the perfect Christmas tree while your photographer is there to capture the spirit of the holiday and your engagement with you. This is a Christmas wedding idea must for those who really love the holiday season!
Christmas Wedding Bouquet...
The stunning red peony bouquet on the left is actually from a summer wedding, but the pop of the red works so well for a Christmas wedding and will grab the attention of all your guests as you walk down the aisle. Just as eye catching are the other bouquets for Christmas wedding ideas with a mixture of pine tree branches, pine cones, red berries and flowers in the one, and a bouquet full of pine tree branches in the other.
Christmas Wedding Guestbook...

Is this not the most clever Christmas wedding idea you've ever seen! I couldn't love another wedding guest book idea as much as I love this idea of having your guests write love notes and advice on Christmas ornaments and hanging them on a tree! What could be a better gift the following Christmas as you hang your new ornaments and read all of the wonderful messages your friends and family left for you to enjoy.

There are so many Christmas wedding ideas in these two photos that I just had to include them in my round up. First, how much do you love the bride's stockings/tights, they are so winter friendly and just adorable for your Christmas wedding. Second, just as kickass is her chic shrug/shawl that helps to complete her head to toe stunning ensemble. Third, what a cute idea to serve hot chocolate at your Christmas wedding, why not add a splash of peppermint schnapps for the adults!
Christmas Wedding Centerpiece...

I really need to get myself some mason jars, I have seen so many wonderful centerpieces like this Christmas wedding idea, and would love to fill my house with the same look. It is such a simple idea to put a few things like some pine cones and cranberries into a mason jar, yet it makes such a big statement that will inspire all of your guests. You could even send them home with these pretty little centerpieces as favors if you are able to part with them!
Christmas Wedding Garland...
Growing up garland was one of our favorite Christmas decor items to put around the house, our favorite spot was along the staircase railing. What I love about this Christmas wedding idea is not just the pine tree garland, but the beautiful ornaments that hang from it. What a fun idea to hang Christmas ornaments in the colors of your wedding theme, you could even put them in your centerpieces or use them with your escort cards as well.
Christmas Wedding Paper Trees...
I adore these paper trees, how could you not! These are made from old book pages, but another idea that popped in my head was yet another clever guest book for your Christmas wedding. Instead of using the book pages, you could use blank pages and ask your guests to write a message on them for you to enjoy for many holidays to come! How much do you love that Christmas wedding idea, one you could use at holiday parties as well.
Christmas Wedding Favors...
If you are on a tight wedding budget, these sweet little DIY jars are the perfect** Christmas wedding idea** to put together for your favors. They are so easy to put together that you won't even realize that you are doing a DIY craft for your big day! Just a few ingredients in a jar, a cute tag, ribbon to match your wedding colors, and you have yourself a favor your guests are sure to enjoy during this blustery season.
Christmas wedding ideas don't have to be gaudy and overwhelming. They can be festive yet chic when you have a garland with ornaments of silver and gold hanging from it or a simple pine cone and cranberry mason jar centerpiece to give to your guests as favors. When it comes to planning holiday themes and using Christmas wedding ideas on your big day, less is always more. Stop by your venue once they have the holiday decor up and see how much more you really need, it's always a good idea to scale back when there are floor to ceiling trees full of lights or big wreaths hanging over each table.
