I Have a Theme.... Festive Frolics

I love Christmas, and I love weddings... so for a Winter wedding I love the idea of a Christmas theme!

Clockwise from top left:

-These handmade invites are easy to put together and won't cost the earth, whilst still looking perfect for a Christmas theme.
-As it will no doubt be extremely cold on your wedding day, why not opt for a long sleeved wedding gown? They look sophisticated and stylish whilst also keeping the cold at bay.
-Claret red tones suit a winter wedding theme for bridesmaids, an alternative is Emerald green
-These novel candle holders would look cute as table decorations or could provide sweet wedding favors
-To keep your reception room looking nice and festive, why not include some foliage in your chair sashes?
-These gorgeous wedding crackers can be personalised or simply kept plain to add to the theme and provide some dinner entertainment for your guests
-(left) Decorated and personalised baubles can make excellent place names, whilst place settings can be decorated even further at a low cost by using snowflake stencils and brightly coloured poster paints
-A personalised wedding bauble favors could be the perfect souvenir from the wedding for your guests
-This rather novel idea of using candycanes to create a vase for table centerpieces is genius and would be cheap and easy to put together yourselves
-Snowflake wedding confetti can be doubled up as decoration for tables
-A fun idea for table numbers, again using DIY skills, is to tie numbered Christmas trees to empty clean jam jars with string
-(above) a wish tree is a great alternative to the guest book. Each guest is asked to write a wish for the couple on a tag, which is then tied onto the 'tree' and collected at the end of the wedding for the couple to read and cherish forever
-A traditional Christmas roast dinner with all the trimmings would be perfect for the festive wedding
-(above) mince pies are another firm favourite for those wishing to keep the Christmas spirit going during the wedding meal
-A great idea for the wedding cake is to include both the red and green floral arrangements, and the festive fun with this present cake design
-A wedding is the most romantic of events, and a Christmas wedding wouldn't be complete without mistletoe, which could be used as bridesmaids bouquets
-(right) meanwhile, including reds and greens in the bridal bouquet is a great idea and would look stunning against the white/cream of the bride's gown
-No Christmas wedding would be complete without a Christmas tree, and photos of the couple in front of the tree would be beautiful to look back on.
