Contemplating a Christmas wedding? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be all red and green, holly and mistletoe. There are many simply ways to imbue a little festive charm into your big day to keep it classy rather than kitsch. Here are some inspiring ideas for keeping the silly season sensible!
Star light, Star Bright
If there’s one thing that says classy Christmas, it’s stars. They’re non-colour specific, leaving your colour scheme open for debate, and certainly won’t seem out of place in a Southern Hemisphere affair. Choose stars in metallics, for a sparkling evening, or simpler whites and creams mixed with a touch of muted gold or silver for a more demure look. Fabrics featuring stars and great chair covers, while star confetti is the perfect table feature. Find decorative knick knacks like candles and hanging decorations to use as cute table toppers or festive bomboniere.
Fairy lights are a subtle way to hint at some christmas cheer, and are always a gorgeous addition to any lighting scheme. They lend a beautiful atmosphere and charm to an evening, and can come in any and all colours, whether you favour more traditional varieties or want to go all red and green for the big day.
Red, Green and everything in between
Brides these days are opting to add a touch of colour to their own attire with a bold sash, or a bright pair of pumps. You can do the same in a brilliant shade of red or green, or perhaps a touch of sparkle or metallic, as a nod to the festive season. Get your bridesmaids feeling festive in christmas colours, silvers or golds, and perhaps ask your groom to try adding a little sparkle.
Snowing in Summer
Who says it can’t snow when the sun is shining? Defy mother nature with a touch of frost on a bright summer’s day, with glitter and snowflakes scattered about tables, white fir branches and snow-covered pine cones as centrepieces, and personalised snow globes as cute placecards and bomboniere. Get this one right, and it could be the perfect winter wonderland – in the middle of a scorching Australian summer!
