The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
|How can we incorporate our Christmas theme into our décor without it being over the top?
|Jessica O’Brien says: Christmas is such a beautiful and touching time of year, which means we need to try and incorporate all of the festive spirit into one day. Sometimes couples want Christmas weddings to be bigger and better than ever, and others don't want Christmas to take over the show.
The festive season in general tends to be over the top, but that doesn't mean that your wedding has to be; as a matter of fact, it can be quite the opposite. Christmas is full of love, family, bright lights, fairytales, and, most importantly, some of the most beautiful colours, all of which come free of charge. Imagine that your day is full of the people that you love, that you care about, and, most importantly, the person you're about to marry. The day already has all of the things that you need to make it one of the most memorable days of your life. Try and add personal touches that make the day about you, such as seasonal colours that are special to you, such as gold, red, and silver.
As an experienced wedding planner and venue dresser, I understand how important the finer details are. In the past, I have created icy-themed weddings, using blues and whites throughout the décor. I have also created an elegant Christmas-themed wedding using gold, white, and lots of lights, making sure the finer details are touched upon. Make sure everything follows the same theme, such as the cake and room décor.
To simplify, you don't have to stress over one of the most celebrated times of the year. Keep it simple and keep it you, and the rest will fall into place.
