How to Plan Holiday Themed Weddings

A holiday wedding such as Christmas affair brings forth exciting options for the couple to decorate and adorn their wedding in the spirit of the season using green and red hues or other non-traditional colors such as white and blue or gold and ivory. The winter is also a perfect time to experiment with unconventional decorations that give personality and meaning to the occasion. Examples include, using snowglobes wrapped in organza wraps and personalized with favor tags not only represent the spirit of the season, but may also highlight your favorite color. Please read more about Christmas or winter planning ideas.

Other holiday weddings that are also celebrated include a fourth of a July or Independence day wedding, which are ideal not only for imparting a patriotic theme, but also a unique opportunity for a wedding celebration filled with fireworks and sparklers. For favors with an American spirit, wrap blue, red, and clear lollipops with a pretty ribbon and tag. Tuck them with your table napkins and use them as table placecard holders.

Seasonal Weddings Bring Creative Ideas to Set a Mood

Beyond holiday weddings, the changes of the season also bring forth many creative ways of decorating weddings. From the magnificent change of fall leaves to the cool breezes of the summer, finding favors and decorations celebrating the spirit of the season is filled with many exciting possibilities by using symbolic elements. When planning a garden wedding in the Spring, for instance, hold a refreshing afternoon tea party reception filled with delicious scones and pastries served with fine gourmet teas. Fill your reception area with unique decorations and sweet scented candles in vanilla or gardenia. Use blooming floral favors such as flower pot placecard holders or flower petals tucked neatly in organza bags made of colorful needlework highlighting the arrival of the new season.

Celebrate the Season with Elegant Wedding Decorations

Whether Easter or Christmas, a wedding celebration inspired by the spirit and warmth of the season brings forth many creative decorating ideas. For instance, use pretty pastel tulips, gerbera daisies, and calla lilies as part of the wedding table decor for an Easter wedding. Moreover, the bright and cheerful colors of these flowers make them ideal as part of the bride's wedding bouquet. For eye-catching Easter table decorations, use whimsical bunnies and chicks made of luscious chocolates, and place them in beautiful abaca heart-shaped boxes or embroidered organza bags. Lastly, relish in the festivities of Easter by planning an Easter egg hunt for the little ones in the wedding.

Decorating Ideas for Fall and Thanksgiving Wedding Celebrations

As summer slowly fades and we await the return of fall, finding decorating ideas for a wedding reception can be challenging yet is filled with many interesting possibilities. Look no further than nature to find inspiration. Select warm colors inspired by the beautiful transformation of the season. An outdoor ceremony, for instance, can be decorated with colorful foliage from maple to acorn trees. While plum colored roses make the perfect centerpiece for reception tables, adding an element of iridescence lends itself to creating a rich yet elegant presentation. Utilize unique materials such as organza, velvet, or cotton fabrics in interesting shades of red or gold as part of accessorizing your guest tables. Use fabrics for packaging items such as mini pumpkins, caramel apples, or mixed nuts.
