While every wedding is romantic, there’s something particularly magical about a Christmas celebration. It’s time to embrace all the season has to offer with our very favourite ideas for a sparkling Christmas wedding.
Set the Scene
Welcome your guests to a winter wonderland, using branches for your table centres and an abundance of candles. Lighting is the key to creating that romantic glow!

These striking invitations are the perfect introduction to a winter wedding. Splash delicately with white paint so they look like they’ve been sprinkled with snow.

Lit by Lanterns
Consider where your guests will be walking and light the way for them. Staircases look beautiful when adorned with pretty lanterns and flowers.

Line the Aisles
Create an impressive entrance by lining the aisle with wintery trees and lighting. Remember, you can always move them over to decorate your reception room after the ceremony has finished.

When it comes to table names, add a little festive fun. These reindeer place name holders are perfect and can be taken home by each guest as their favour.

Nothing says Christmas quite like a bauble! They’re great for holding place names and they decorate your table at the same time.

If you’re feeling creative, save your pennies by making your own place names. These pine cones look a treat when given a sprinkle of glitter.

Your Christmas Cake
On the theme of sparkle, let’s not forget cakes. This stunning design gives a shimmer with its frosty iced snowflakes.

If you’re choosing a pudding table, this is the perfect time of year to do it. Adorn the table with mince pies, festive cookies and plenty of baubles and silver sparkle.

Make a Wish
For something a little quirky and unusual, put a wishing tree on a central table and invite guests to pin a ‘wish’ in the form of a note or decoration to the branches. It’s a wonderful winter decoration, and a special keepsake.

Light it Up
Fairy lights set a wonderfully romantic scene, but you don’t always have an abundance of places to hang them. Consider using battery operated lights and place them in large Kilner jars. The finished look is great for a little boho style.

The Winter Candle
Love the idea of jars? For a more country look, place tea lights in large glass jars and adorn the lids with your chosen decoration. They make great table centres and sit elegantly on window sills.

Many couples marrying in winter might choose traditional colours such as reds, purples and greens. If you’d like to stick to white, add a little sparkle and glitter to your delicate blooms – simple but effective.

The Christmas Table
We love this table centrepiece, an extravaganza of baubles and pine cones, and a perfect alternative to traditional floral table centres.

The Grand Finale
As you say your vows, or take to the floor for your first dance, consider creating a dramatic wall of lights behind you. It’s that magical moment you’ll all remember, and provides a dream photo opportunity!
