There are so many great ways to throw a beautiful holiday wedding, and most reception locations will already be decorated for the holidays. We selected several special party wedding ideas for you. Here they are.
First, let’s start with your outfit. You can wear a gown with white velvet accents or something with faux-fur (the latter is so trendy this year). You should also use festive colors like red, gold, or green, especially when they come on an elegant cape.The groom can wear a red and green or metallic-brocade vest or cummerbund and tie. The more extravagant gentlemen can also wear studs and cuff links. For the wedding party, dress your bridesmaids in bright red or hunter green or in gold, silver, and pewter.
As we mentioned before, most reception locations will already be decorated but you can still add something from yourself. For example, drape ivy or holly mixed with sprigs of baby breath among the rows of seats for the ceremony. Poinsettias will look perfect not only around the area where you ll stand to exchange your vows, but also as centerpieces. Another great idea for outstanding centerpieces is to fill large glass vases or bowls with solid-colored glass ornaments. You can also adorn evergreen plants with lights, candy canes, and little red bows.
As far as food and drinks are concerned, you can have the caterer recreate your favorite holiday dinner. A punch bowl full of egg nog, spiced cider, or spiked rum would be the perfect beverage choice. Everyone loves festive holiday drinks and meals. And do you know how you will impress your guests even more serve hot cocoa, plain or with a shot of creme de menthe. This will bring warmth and coziness to your elegant winter wedding!
