Share your love during the most wonderful time of the year, the holidays. Bring a festive spirit and good cheer to your holiday wedding. December is a busy month for most people filled with many holiday activities such as Christmas shopping, holiday parties and religious traditions and observations. Planning a wedding during this hectic holiday season is a challenge for many couples but not impossible. Read on for helpful tips and ideas to create a memorable happy holiday wedding.


Set the mood for your holiday wedding by selecting beautifully decorated blank holiday cards as your wedding invites and insert response cards with pre-addressed envelopes inside. Couples might discover significant savings when purchasing boxes of blank holiday cards over traditional customized wedding invitations.

Color Themes

Classic holiday color themes include red and green, the traditional colors of Christmas or all-white for creating a winter wonderland effect. Icy blue and silver make for an elegant holiday color combination as well as silver and gold or burgundy with deep forest green. There is no rule that says a holiday wedding must be in a color associated with the season, remember it is your wedding day.


Add seasonal floral touches to your ceremony such as red or white poinsettias, swags of fragrant evergreen, Christmas trees, white calla lilies, cranberries, red amaryllis and tulips or fresh sprigs of holly. String strands of twinkling clear holiday lights intertwined with garland and velvet bows or suspend sparkly white snowflakes from the ceiling to create a magical holiday effect. Use wreaths as reception table centerpieces and place large white candles in the middle. Check to see if your chosen venue such as a church or country club is planning on decorating for the holidays, this might result in additional savings on decorations costs.


Choose your ceremony site and reception location as early as possible for best selection, advanced reservations are a necessity as prime locations fill up fast during the busy holiday season. When choosing your wedding and reception sites look for small details such as cozy fire places and large picture windows with views of snow-covered mountains. For older facilities, inquire about heating during the winter months to assure your guests are kept warm and comfortable. If getting married in the chilly outdoors, request guests to be prepared in case of changing weather conditions.


The holiday season was made for winter weddings, select from an almost endless variety of gift ideas to give as your wedding favors. Popular wedding favors include custom-made ornaments decorated with the couples name and wedding date, enchanting snow globes, cookie cutters in festive holiday shapes, Santa stockings filled with jingle bells, hand-painted nutcrackers or tin containers filled with holiday delicacies such as cookies, chocolates or nuts. For an added merry touch, wrap your favors like a present.
