From Invitations to Flowers to Tiny Details, here is everything that you should think about when your style reflects that of the Christmas Season. The common misconception is that a Christmas Wedding has to be red and green and that’s just not true. There’s so many gorgeous colors that you can use for your palette. You can stay in your budget and have the wedding you truly want, you just have to really think about what you’re doing. You have to truly design and execute correctly. The secret is that it’s all about the tiny details and making them reflect each other fluidly.
Here are some key points to consider when creating A Very Christmas Wedding.
It’s important that your venue of choice reflects the wedding you’re wanting to design. Most likely for this time of year, you’ll need a venue that has everything you need inside; unless you live somewhere that’s unseasonably warm. This is the base of your wedding and everything will revolve around your venue. Make sure you ask tons of questions and take photos so you can refer to them while designing your wedding at home.
You know the saying “Your eyebrows should be sisters, not twins”? The same goes for your Save-The-Dates. They should be a hint of what’s to come; a hint of your decor, style, theme and what to expect from your invitation. You can save some money here by sending these out as Postcards instead of full on envelopes.
Your invitations are where you go all out to make a statement. Does that mean it has to cost you $8 per invitation set? No way. It just means that you have to figure out how you want to make that “WOW” statement for your invitations and designing around that.
Here’s where Less really is More. When it comes to Christmas, the magic is in the decor. So, I suggest using neutral linens to balance out the colorful decor that you’ll be adding in. It’s all about balance.
