How to choose Christmas wedding colors

Use the holiday season as inspiration. Or, go against the mold and totally surprise your guests with some unusual yet classy Christmas wedding colors. 

  1. Red and White. Picture mini red tree skirts with white fringe surrounding your table centerpieces. 

  2. All That Glitters Is Gold. Beautiful, elegant and timeless, this color scheme complements most color palettes and involves as much sparkle as your heart desires. 

  3. Silver Bells. Silver candelabras, tinsel, and even sleighbell centerpieces make this charming color scheme come to life. 

  4. Blue Christmas. Darker hues go well with lighter blues, silver, or even white. 

  5. Christmas Tree Forest Green. Bring nature into your design and highlight the beautiful spruces, pinecones, and blushing berries that define this time of year. 

  6. Cranberry Blush. Add some champagne sparkle to complete the look. 

5 beautiful Christmas wedding dresses and style ideas

These suggestions are easy to find on any dress budget and fit the season both in terms of the temperature and the style! 

  1. Full Ball Gown. Tulle skirts and A-Line frames fit the boldness of this season and give you a bit extra warmth. 

  2. Queen Anne Neckline. Elegant and regal, this neckline just doesn’t look as nice any other time of the year. 

  3. High Collar. This can be on your dress itself or as part of an accessory cape.

  4. Long Sleeve Lace. Lace is a classic choice for the season and will cover the right amount of skin without being overly modest. 

  5. Faux Fur Hooded Wrap. This fairytale Eastern European style will bring some whimsy to any outdoor wedding photo session during this season.

5 creative ideas for Christmas wedding invitations

Christmas trees aren’t the only thing you can put on your invitations! 

  1. Wreaths. Use your wedding colors as the ornaments or have an artist draw your cat or dog holding it. 

  2. Snowflakes. Include them on the card art or use paper snowflakes as the invitation itself. 

  3. Antique Blank Inside Christmas Cards. They don’t even have to match! Look for these at antique stores, estate sales, and on eBay. 

  4. Deep Forest Green with Gold Stamps. This color combination is memorable and unique. Add a patterned ribbon or wax seal on the outside to complete the glamorous look.  

  5. Rustic Christmas. Include snowy log cabins, antique sleds, and pine trees as part of your design. Use hand-tied packaging string or add a faux sprig of holly.
