Organza rounds

Summer may be long gone, but why should the wedding bells stop ringing in the winter? Let the cold ice and snow outside serve as the perfect elements for planning an exciting winter holiday or Christmas wedding. Find inventive wedding favors, gifts, and decorating ideas that blend a beautiful combination of color, texture, sound, and even taste to create a memorable celebration. A wedding at this time of the year always brings a special reason to celebrate and enjoy your special day together with family and friends.

Selecting Wedding Colors with A Traditional Twist on Style

Since all the excitement happens at the table, let your wedding feast be an epicurean celebration surrounded by succulent turkey, English bread pudding, and an array of tantalizing delights decorated with sparkling sugar pearls and silver dragees. Take a cue from Santa and provide a warm and generous feeling by using colorful table decorations with a jovial mood such as crystal tableware, beaded candle votives, or candle ring holders with faux pearl accents. For favors that double up as decorations, present bags of delicious chocolates wrapped in colorful favor wraps.

Alternative Color Ideas beyond Red and Green for a Holiday Bridal Party

While red and green may be typical Christmas decoration colors, be creative and try using non-traditional colors such as aqua and chocolate brown, navy blue and silver, ivory and gold, or lavender and aqua. If tradition is still your calling, select a creative hue such as light metallic red and apple green for a more modern decorating approach. Use these colors not only as part of the table décor, but coordinate them with items such as place cards and table menus.

Easy Bridal Party Gifts and Favors for Celebrating the Holidays

Searching for unique gifts and favors for the holidays need not be complicated. As an example, find a frame and bring it to life by placing a memorable photo inside the frame with a personal greeting. This great gift idea is ideal for the bridesmaid who has it all. For a nice hostess gift for the mother of the bride, give her handmade seashell trays that make great decorative pieces for the home. Lastly, give colorful red and green chocolate coins wrapped in organza or tulle. Put them in coffee mugs filled with cocoa or tea packets and display them on your holiday wedding table, so guests can take them home to enjoy.

Creating your very own Wedding Favor Christmas Tree

Ivy design favor bags

A memorable winter wedding would not be complete without a homemade Christmas holiday favor tree. Find a miniature tree and personalize it with your own ornaments that serve as favors. Decorate it with items ranging from simple baubles to whimsical wooden reindeers. Hang them on the tree, each displayed with a pretty favor tag. For an edible tree favor that won’t break the bank, yet still look stylish, bake cookies in the shape of snowmen and decorate them with icing, which is personalized with the name of the bride and groom. You may either hang these cookies directly on the tree or present them in organza favor bags with a Christmas motif such as ivy. Save time yet have fun by having your bridesmaids assist with this activity. When looking to cut down on wedding flower costs, let these miniature Christmas trees serve double duty as your table centerpieces. Add a little humor to these trees by displaying miniature wrapped gift boxes filled with chocolates, peppermint swirls, or taffy - tied with pretty ribbons and tiny bells, which can also serve as favors to take home. Scatter bits of artificial snowflakes and clear crystal candies to create a captivating look! Do remember that the ideas presented here can also be applied towards a New Year's Wedding.
