It’s not that we’re turning our noses up at a summer wedding, after all there’s nothing more enjoyable than sipping a cup of Pimm’s on the lawn as the sun beats down. It’s just that if you’re looking for true romance, nothing beats a winter wedding with faux fur stolls, blanket-on-the-knee carriage rides and crimson roses stealing the show.
From little Christmas touches through to a fully fledged festive theme there’s a Christmas to suit every couple.
Every year we create a host of decoration themes that fit in with both the hottest trends of the year and the classic themes of the past, either of which would translate perfectly into your wedding plans. This year’s hotties range anywhere from Highland Fling right across to Nordic Enchantment, enabling you to find a colour palette that suits your big day.
Here at Pines and Needles we can even provide you with a Christmas tree at any time of year, just in case you’re planning your Christmas wedding in the middle of July (no judgements here, we start planning as soon as we’re back in the office in January!).
There are so many other ways to bring Christmas into your nuptials without taking it all the way to Lapland, so we’ve come up with some top tips to ensure you’re Wedding is perfect.
Christmas decorations are a great way to incorporate the magic into your special day! Create a theme, or enlist the help of one of ours. You don’t want your wedding to end up as a mash up of blue and white Jack Frost thrown together with traditional red and gold!
This year, we highly recommend our Highland Fling selection. There’s just something about mixing Christmas crimson with tartan and heritage that makes the Scottish theme perfect for weddings.
The perfect table entertainment for little ones, and big ones! Everything from Tom Smith’s luxury crackers to Robin Reed’s Champagne Frost will keep your guests entertained from wedding breakfast to midnight dancing!
A tree decorated in your colour scheme is a fabulous addition to your wedding decor and can transform any room into a Christmas hideaway in an instant!
A Nordmann Fir is the perfect indoor tree, especially for those venues that are anti-needles! They are full and fabulous and will last for weeks after the wedding as a perfect reminder of your big day!
A Norway Spruce is the epitome of Christmas, with a scent to match! The needles will shed quicker, making it the perfect tree if you’re leaving it behind. They also work really well outside!
Never mind your usual Prosecco or Mojito, break the boundaries and try a White Christmas cocktail! The change in tradition will leave a part of the wedding that will always be remembered, and the guests will be drinking them right up to the big day (Christmas Day that is!)
Planning a Christmas Wedding would be a dream to us at Pines & Needles. We love everything about Christmas (obviously) and combining the decorations, the food and the sprit alongside that of a wedding is nothing short of perfection. Check out our Pinterest board for more ideas!
