It’s December – the most wonderful time of the year and the team here at GMINI HQ is feeling the festive love. In homage to this special time, we thought we would put together a little montage of merry wedding ideas to inspire you if you’re thinking of having your own festive nuptials…
Bauble Place Card Holders – What’s more festive than a Christmas tree bauble? Not only are these place card holders easy to make (either by your wedding planner or yourself), but your wedding guests could keep them and use them on their own trees.
Festive Hair – From hairstyles to accessories, there are simple yet stunning ways to inject some Christmas spirit into your wedding day locks. Think snowflake-inspired hairpieces or red berry-laden crowns and you’re on the right track.
Mistletoe Magic – Mistletoe is not just about Christmas kissing you know; this winter plant is one of the most iconic because of its beauty and its versatility. Try incorporating it into everything from your wedding favours, to your flowers, table centres and room decor.
Christmas-Inspired Stationery – From table names embracing the wonder of the 12 days of Christmas in the prettiest of ways, to ornate baubles containing an extra special invite to your wedding, Darling Stationery in Galgorm have all angles covered.
Pre-Dinner Entertainment – Have you thought about how you might entertain your guests before dinner? If not, imagine a choir singing hymns – could there be anything more ‘Christmassy’?
Edible Centrepieces – Gingerbread houses are synonymous with Christmas time so you could add a little festive fun into your meal by having edible gingerbread house centrepieces.
Snowflake Cakes – When it comes to adding a little touch of Christmas to your big day, cakes are as versatile as flowers so think snow, ice or more specifically – snowflakes.
Button Holes – Your florist can do wonders with holly and berries and your groom and groomsmen will certainly make Santa’s nice list with buttonholes as festive as these.
Santa Hats – Encapsulate Christmas in your wedding album by wearing Santa hats in your wedding photographs! Alternatively, you could hand them out to your guests as fun wedding favours.
Bride Red – Christmas weddings are crying out for a touch of red so having this festive shade woven throughout your decor, bridesmaid gowns, flower girl sashes or flowers will be stunning. If you were a little more daring, you could go all out and wear red yourself!
