One of the most blissful times of the year to plan a wedding is the Christmas time. Many brides and grooms choose this holiday for their wedding as one of the most adequate for family celebration. Christmastime is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times to get married, especially when you are a big fan of winter and all the beautiful things this season brings. There are many advantages of planning a wedding during this period. First of all, both churches and reception halls may already be decorated for the holidays.
Nevertheless, these venues may be more expensive than the usual, and not because they are already decorated. This is due to the fact that this time of year is sought-after by many couples for different occasions and special events. This is why many pairs decide for another date for their wedding. Those on a budget may not be able to afford a wedding on Christmas. But you might as well think of investing more in a special venue and save on the décor. Nevertheless, the biggest problem is that you need to book a Christmas wedding venue with at least a year in advance. We say this because most locations are already taken during this period.
The winter season is in general very busy in this sense. The magic of Christmas is easy to express in a wedding when using the right ingredients. If you are clueless about the decorative items you should use, we suggest you get inspired from the unique wedding projects released by our designers. They have some fabulous ideas to propose to those who wish to make this day a memorable one. If there’s snow outside, you can consider creating a warm atmosphere indoors, or plan a whimsical reception outdoors. It depends on the type of event you want to create and how well you can tolerate low temperatures.
More and more couples decide to spend a winter wedding day outside the doors, in the snow. This sounds like a fun idea, especially if the couple chooses to include seasonal sports and activities in the program. It’s easy to add more sparkle to an indoors wedding by using thematic centerpieces. Use specific items, such as Christmas ornaments: strings of lights, garlands and trees. Use gold and bronze glitter to paint different wedding items for a more glamorous effect. Don’t forget to use snowflakes to decorate the space. You can use crystals or beads to create them. Hang them over the place for a fairy-tale like ambiance. For a romantic look, use poinsettias centerpieces. Decorate the tables with large or small pots for a more seasonal feel. Red roses and white lilies would also look elegant in a Christmas wedding.
Luckily for modern couples, both warm and seasons are nowadays exploited by our wedding event designers. They’ve managed to come up with a myriad of inedited ideas for fall and winter weddings and this is why those who love the cold time of the year can get more excited about planning their big day. Year after year, fall weddings are becoming more and more popular. Our couples like the tonality of autumn and the ravishing color schemes available during this time of the year for a wedding décor.

You can use the season itself to create the perfect setting for the wedding and choose the most adequate decorations, food and favors for the reception. There are just so many ways to incorporate fall’s elements in a wedding! This time of the year is perhaps one of the richest of all. And we say this due to the rich colors, savory fruits, changing foliage and nature festivities. The fruits are ripe, the colors are saturated and everything is bountiful. The harvest time is ideal for a wedding because it can add more meaning to your marriage, like wealth and prosperity, fertility and abundance. Another great thing about fall weddings is that the venues during this time of the year are cheaper and easier to book for the date a couple wants.
Autumn provides with a wide range of venues and locales outdoors that can fit romantic, rustic, wild and luxuriant weddings. The crisp air, the apple cider perfume and the seasonal leaves can convince many couples to choose this season for their wedding. The colors of fall are by far the most impressive. You can play with deep shades of plum, russet red, chocolate brown, burgundy, gold, hunter green and burnt orange. You can also use bronze, yellow and pink shades to add more romance and elegance to the setting. It’s hip to choose a turquoise and yellow or purple and gold color mix for a modern fall wedding. Traditional couples can focus on reds, yellows and browns. There are even more elements of nature that can be used as wedding decorations, like pine cones, pumpkins and gourds, hay, wheat, grapevines, apples, pears, branches, birch, changing leaves and fall flowers.
Use twine and acorns to decorate the napkins and the tables. The entire setting can be ornate with corn stalks and bales of hay. As for the food, anything spicy can fit, like roast turkey, rib coast, quail and other substantial meats. Mashed potatoes and squash, macaroni and cheese and toasted nuts can make ideal selections for a seasonal wedding menu. Your guests can be treated with candied apples instead of artificial wedding favors.
Not all couples of today choose to wed in summer. It’s true that warm seasons are preferred by the majority of brides and grooms. But thanks to our designers, cold seasons are easier now to consider for a wedding ceremony and reception. There are more themes and ideas to choose from for fall and winter weddings than ever before. This is what encourages our brides and grooms to choose a cold month for their big day.

If you love Christmas and you want to make it more unique, choose to personalize every single aspect of the wedding and make the theme look more modern. Winter celebrations are ideal for large families. If you’re planning a big wedding and you want your guests to enjoy the party, choose a holyday theme for the décor, music, food and entertainment. A winter reception can be a great chance for your family members and friends to mingle with each other in a nice fun way. The season itself represents a rich source of inspiration for those who want to plan a thematic wedding reception. Take into consideration the specific of the season, such as the iciness.
You can use silver, bronze and even gold hues to decorate the place. If you can’t seem to find anything elegant or appropriate in these tones for your wedding, buy spray paint and dye the floral vases and even the tables. Paint manzanita branches and pine cones in the colors of the wedding. Use strands of beaded crystals to decorate the room. Drape them of the tree centerpieces and don’t forget to add a few glass beads or mini crystals on the tables for a more festive and glamorous look. Gray and red is another trendy color combo that can fit a modern winter time wedding. Use baby’s breath, eucalyptus branches, ivy leaves and holly berries to decorate the tables in a more romantic way.

For instance, if you’re having a spring time wedding, then the best location for your wedding would be an outdoors space, in the middle of the green nature. If you’re having a fall wedding, then perhaps a countryside venue like a farm, ranch of vineyard can make the perfect selections.
The season and the venue usually dictate the colors, the fabrics, the textures, the flowers and the food menu for a wedding. And it would be wise to follow these recommendations as they tend to be more adequate and in most cases even more affordable. Let’s take for instance the wedding flowers.

The first cake is a delicate confection in a unique shape. This cake is graphic and therefore very aesthetical. We adore the flower-like shaped tiers and the way they are adorned with bloom and leaf patterns. Chocolate is the flavor of fall because it is rich, moist and very elegant. We like the refined white embellishment against the chocolate-brown fondant tiers. This confection screams elegance, style and good taste and it can suit perfectly well a whimsy semi-formal wedding in autumn.
The flower pattern used for the ultimate tier of the cake is a more modern and unique alternative to the traditional topper. We love this cake because it looks deliciously dainty and chic. The second proposal is also based on chocolate, this time adorned with yellow roses. This confection is messy and wild, ideal for outdoors countryside affairs. The cake is covered in bittersweet chocolate frosting and it is adorned with roses, sandersonia and fiddleheads. These yellow blooms add more to the romantic and rich tasty look of the cake. The ultimate picture shows us mini wedding cakes accented with monograms. These treats are inspired by French charlottes and this is why they look so crazily delicious!
