Christmastime is the perfect time of year to incorporate some glam red and gold in to your wedding day. The season is full of sparkle and color! And with the availability of fresh greenery and shiny Christmas bulbs, a red and gold wedding makes even more sense. Today we’re sharing inspiration and ideas on how to host a gorgeous red and gold Christmas wedding of your own.
Choosing a Venue
Choosing a venue for a Christmas wedding can sometimes be easier than finding one for a spring or summer wedding – the off-season is a great time to find gorgeous spaces. For this red and gold Christmas wedding, choose a venue that lends itself well for a classy and glamorous party. Envision you, your decor and your guests in the space and make your decision based on the type of venue that will suit your style the best.
The decor for your wedding day can be as simple or as complex as you prefer. Evergreen is readily available in the wintertime, so incorporating that into your tablescape is a wonderful idea. Add in some pomegranate and gold candlestick holders for a simple and classic look, or go more glamorous with golden vases filled with red and white blooms and greenery. Fill in the empty spaces with red and gold votive holders and you’ll have a gorgeous space for you and your guests to enjoy the evening.
The Classic Bride and Groom
A classic wedding deserves classic attire. Groom and groomsmen in classic black and gray suits create a statement against the gold and red. And the bride in a sophisticated, pure white gown is the perfect complement to the groom’s attire. Add a pop of color with bright red heels or a red lips – you’ll be the best looking bride and groom of the year.
Treat each guest to something special to take with them to remember your lovely day. Personalized wine glasses, boxes full of seasonal candy or votive holders are all wonderful sentiments that your guests will enjoy. Whatever you choose, make sure it matches your personality and the style of your day.
A Christmastime wedding is a wonderful way to celebrate your new life together, and it will make the holiday season that much more special for years to come.
