To set out the mood of your Christmas wedding you need to start with the basics, so the first thing your guests will see before your wedding - the invitations.
Keep them simple and classy with hues of Christmas colors. Remember not to overdo them. All the important information should be easily readable and accentuated so they are easier to remember. Incorporate details that are easily associated with Chrismas. Such as fir or pine branches, mistletoe, red berries, cones and snow.

6. Table décor
It is best to keep it simple. Follow the color scheme that literally screams Christmas. If you want a pop of color use red’s mixed with greens and gold. For a bit simpler option, focus more on a centerpiece – make it a pop of color over simple plates and rather dark colored tablecloth. Whenever decorating a table in Christmas theme use wood, acorns, fir, and pine branches.

One of the first associations everyone makes with winter is ice. It a good idea to incorporate it into your decorations to make your wedding a winter wonderland. You are going to use ice anyway to keep the bottles cold so why not make an ice bucket with sunken berries and pine needles?
