Well, we think so!
It’s probably a bit late in the day to be searching for Christmas 2019 inspiration, but if you’re planning a festive wedding for 2020, here are our top tips to help you get that dream Christmassy wedding day you’re wishing for.
First things first, you’ll need to pick a venue for your wedding and reception that can, with some creative flair, be transformed into a magical winter wonderland. Think grand halls and country manors. Here in the East Midlands we’re lucky enough to have a bunch of perfect settings right on our doorstep, from Haarlem Mill to Colwick Hall.
Start spreading the festive cheer right from the start with your wedding invitations. It’s the first thing your wedding guests will be seeing in relation to your special day, so go all out with a wintry or Christmas theme. As wedding invites are usually sent out months in advance of the event, it’ll give your soon-to-be-guests an event to get super excited about throughout the summer and autumn. All the more time to plan an outfit!
When it comes to a Christmas wedding, forget “less is more”. You want ALL the decorations! We’re talking Christmas crackers on the tables, sparkly centrepieces, fairy lights, and of course, Christmas trees a’plenty.
Ahhh, the music. A perfect opportunity to get you and your guests fully in the Christmas spirit! Whether it’s rocking Slade or a smooth bit of Bublé, a playlist of festive classics will be sure to get everyone up on the dance floor having a wonderful time.
Photo booths have become very popular at all sorts of weddings, and if you’re here with us in the East Midlands we highly recommend MirraMirra. Make the booth your own by shopping around for some Christmassy props, like Santa hats and tinsel. Use your imagination! Over-the-top festive props will make for some amazing pictures for you and your guests to look back on.
