Christmas is a season of joy, cozy romance and time spent with loved ones… which is exactly what makes it the perfect time for a wedding! While a Christmas wedding may not be the most traditional choice, it can make for a truly special day surrounded by your nearest and dearest. Plus, you won’t forget your anniversary!

As the snow falls outside and the fire roars indoors, let your married life begin to the sound of carols and the scent of cinnamon.

If you’re looking for tips for planning a Christmas wedding, we’ve made it easy to create your perfect festive mood board. From the color scheme to your bridal style to the perfect Christmas venue, your ceremony and reception will mark the best holiday season yet.

Color Scheme: Christmas Red & Sparkle

When you think of Christmas, rustic reds, deep greens and the sparkle of white snow all spring to mind. This Christmas color combination is a great starting point as you develop your winter wedding theme. You can further elevate it with the warm tonal shades of beige, walnut and coffee.

When it comes to applying this color scheme, there is no easier way than with gorgeous festive florals. Alongside the vibrant red of holly and the steady evergreen tones of fir trees, there are poinsettias, red and white roses and rustic pine cones. Subtle sparkle also plays a big part in this color palette, with glitter mimicking the magical twinkle of lights on the tree and candles at a Christmas dinner.

Ling’s Moment makes it easy to harness this unmistakable color palette to give your winter wedding the coziest of Christmas vibes. Faux flowers and foliage in reds, greens, and browns combine with sparkles to create a festive color palette. And the best part? You won’t know where your traditional Christmas decor ends and your romantic wedding style begins - your entire wedding will be a cozy celebration of family, life and love.

Bridal Style

When you don your dream gown on your wedding day, it’s important to have the right bridal florals to tie the look together. While red and green may not seem like a traditional palette for a bridal bouquet, it is surprisingly easy to wear this festive color scheme without it feeling “too much”. Remember, in the lead up to Christmas, these rustic colors just feel right.

Roses help take your floral arrangement from holiday decor to romantic statement. Ling’s Moment creates stunning arrangements with red and white roses, complemented with sprigs of holly, fir and pine cones. Your final look will be like a fairytale - romantic and timeless.

And for the men in the wedding party, Ling’s boutonnieres can uplift and harmonize their winter wedding look. As the snow falls and your fiance waits at the end of the aisle, the cozy touch of warm red will fill you with love and confidence.

Venue Decor

To elevate the cozy, festive Christmas theme for your wedding, you are not limited to just a Christmas tree. In fact, expanding on your existing festive decor is a great way to plan a Christmas wedding on a budget.

From your ceremony to your reception, the texture and color of Ling’s florals can transform any space into a fairytale winter wonderland. To create a Christmas themed wedding backdrop, the traditional decor of wreaths and garlands can be elevated with romantic roses.

To really lean into the cozy vibes, consider holding your ceremony in front of a roaring fire. Along the top of the fireplace can hang a garland, complete with the poinsettias and roses in ruby red and pure white. Oh, and you can never have too many candles!

In the spirit of the holidays, the core of a Christmas wedding should be cozy abundance. More is more when it comes to wedding florals, winter decor and welcoming warmth. This is a time to spend with your family, loved ones and, of course, your new spouse.

If you’ve been considering planning a Christmas wedding, this is your sign. Make the happiest day of the year even more joyful with the promise of forever love. At every step of planning your winter wedding, Ling’s Moment will be there to help create the perfect mood for the best day of your life.
