With Christmas just around the corner, our thoughts are turning to a month of festivities and the merriment of a Christmas wedding theme.

If you’re planning a winter wedding, we hope these ideas will inspire and delight.

Starting at the very beginning with your ceremony, try to include a Christmas tree here and there if you can. It’s a fabulous way of introducing your winter theme, and bringing some greenery into the venue. Adorn them with baubles if you’d like to, or leave them ‘au naturel’.

As an alternative to traditional confetti, fill cones with snow-like confetti and hand them to your guests after the ceremony. It makes for a fabulous photograph. Who knows… you might even get a few flakes of real snow!

Lighting is all important at a winter wedding, creating a warm, romantic ambience even on the coldest of days. Line your aisle with hurricane lamps, hang candles from trees and adorn every beam and walkway with fairy lights.

As for stationery, set the scene with a suitably festive design. We love this.

Greet your guests with a festive cocktail, being sure to create an equally fabulous non-alcoholic alternative.

While you might not be enjoying welcome drinks on the lawn, it’s still important to add light and interest outside. Your guests will appreciate this when they arrive, and will always see lights twinkling on the trees through the windows.

Don’t forget the mistletoe. Be sure to hang a few sprigs around the venue – it is a wedding day after all!

When it comes to table centrepieces, choose something suitably twinkly and beautiful. We love these miniature trees. If you wanted to give this a more Christmas feel, you could hang miniature baubles from the branches.

Candy canes make a great favour. Place them on napkins with a place name for an inexpensive Christmas table decoration.

As another favour idea, consider giving each guest a tree bauble. It’s something they will always cherish, remembering your wedding each year when they hang it on the tree.

For place names, never underestimate the beauty of a pine cone, particularly when dipped in silver or gold glitter. Pretty and budget friendly.

On to the wedding cake and you have plenty of options to choose from. The first is a pure white design, perhaps adorned with sugar snowflakes.

Alternatively, add the festive shades of green and red with a little help from mother nature.
