1Decorate The Venue With Christmas Trees

Of course, you need a Christmas tree at your wedding. It can be the main centerpiece at the end of the aisle where you and your fiancé stand, or you can have small ones decorated throughout the reception venue. Whichever route you decide on, a Christmas tree has to be invited to the party, as it is the symbol of the season.

2Go To Town With The Tinsel

When celebrating your big day, tinsel naturally has to make a glam appearance. This Tweet certainly has the right idea of providing your guests with tinsel to throw when you walk back down the aisle as husband and wife. You can also use it to decorate the tables. Whatever you use it for, you can't go wrong with some shiny tinsel thrown about.

3Cozy Blankets For Your Guests Is Always A Good Idea

Providing some cozy blankets is a super cute idea for your guests to keep warm during the ceremony. Write up a sign with a cute saying, letting everyone know to grab one for themselves. Tie each one with a pretty bow, and you're set.

4This Snowy White Wedding Cake Is What Dreams Are Made Of

A snowscape wedding cake is a great idea to turn that traditional dessert into something fitting for a winter wonderland-themed reception. You can use the icing to create a snowy look, or decorate it up with some sugary snowflakes. You can even add a pop of color with red berries and green holly leaves.

5An Exquisite Winter Bouquet Will Make Jaws Drop

A combination of white and red is perfect for your Christmas wedding bouquet. Roses feature the two staple colors of the Christmas season, and they're also super romantic. Surrounding some of the beautiful red roses with white flowers looks like they're covered in a blanket of snow.

6Have Each Bridesmaid Wear A Faux Fur Shawl

Having your bridesmaids wear faux fur shawls is a chic AF look. The white will look great against the winter background for all of your group photos. It will also look simply stunning with your dress, and faux fur pairs well with any elegant gown you choose for your bridesmaids — most especially the above sparkly ones.

7A Velvet Tux Will Look Great On Your Prince Charming

Velvet is everywhere nowadays. It's making a strong comeback in our closets, so a velvet tux is a great idea for your groom to rock. Black or blue is always a great choice, but you can also get a dark green velvet tux to match the red and green colors of Christmas.

8A Hot Chocolate Bar Is Necessary, Of Course

A hot chocolate bar sounds like a Christmas miracle. Your guests can get cozy with a nice cup of hot cocoa. Let them make it their own with peppermint sticks and marshmallows.

You can also spice things up for your guests who are 21 and over with some festive spirits like Bailey's or Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey.

9Candy Cane Centerpieces Are Oh-So-Sweet

You can use candy canes in all of your decorating to add a Christmasy pop of color. Putting some candy canes in a vase with white flowers gives it a sophisticated holiday look. These silver glittery vases on Etsy will look great with some peppermint sticks in them for elegant centerpieces.
