Year after year, holiday weddings prove to be unique and memorable, and not just because of all that Chicago snow. Check out some fun holiday wedding themes that are sure to make your wedding stand out.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Perhaps it’s the enchanting atmosphere that makes this theme so popular among smitten couples. To get a wintery look try incorporating silver, shades of blue and white into the color scheme. Snowflakes can hang from artificial white trees surrounded by a dusting of “snow” on the ground. Clear white Christmas lights draped around the venue will add the final touch for this theme. But don’t forget the music! Stitely offers several variations of string combos that will be the perfect match for cocktails and dinner at this sophisticated wedding.
Christmas Delight: Weddings are already hectic without adding the holidays to the mix. However, having a “Christmas Delight” theme is a great way to highlight the more relaxing aspects of season. While ruby reds and emerald greens are the most prevalent Christmas colors we don’t want your wedding being confused with the office holiday party. Instead, try choosing only one of these staple colors and pair it with gold. Imagine your bridesmaids floating down the aisle in elegant red dresses with gold stars twinkling above them- what a great backdrop for your special day! Another alternative is to have a treat table that includes all of your holiday favorites: gingerbread men (or ginger brides with white frosting), candy canes and, of course, your Aunt Milly’s apple pie. Finally, this wedding’s not complete without a dazzling white Christmas tree decorated with red or green ornaments.
Rustic Holiday: A favorite holiday pastime is cozying up with the family to a warm fire complete with hot chocolate in hand. While this “Rustic Holiday” theme has the least amount of guidance, it has the most potential for a romantic and intimate atmosphere. Find a rustic venue such as an old church, cabin or barn and incorporate earth tones and deep reds into the color scheme. Keep the lights dimmed while dancing to Stitely’s top wedding bands or DJs, and for dessert treat guests to hot chocolate next to flickering candles and poinsettia centerpieces. This theme is sure to create a cozy and tender celebration.
