9 Ideas for a Rustic Christmas Wedding
The most magical time of the year is the perfect time to throw a wedding. With rustic details and deep, moody florals, we’re sharing 9 ideas for a Christmas wedding that you’ll never forget.
A Romantic Christmas Wedding Venue
One of the first steps in wedding planning is choosing a venue – your date and every other detail rely on where you’ll be hosting your wedding.
A winter wedding venue should feel intimate, cozy and romantic, and a rustic theme has charming details that add to the essence of the day. Consider a barn setting for your ceremony. Bring in heaters and provide guests with blankets as they watch you exchange vows with a backdrop of evergreens and freshly fallen snow.
Maybe find a cozy and rustic venue with lots of character and industrial details to act as your blank slate to fill with decor, florals and all of your loved ones on your wedding day.
Speaking of florals, choose deep hued flowers and gorgeous greenery for a Christmas wedding day that has a beautiful and unexpected color palette.
For your bridal bouquet, design a cascading arrangement of deep red garden roses and pale pink peonies. Mix in some draping greenery that creates a statement piece as you walk down the aisle.
Adorn each doorway eucalyptus and pine garlands to create a welcoming environment for each guest as they enter your reception venue. They also make wonderful photography backdrops for your ceremony or head table.
When it comes to your head table, adorn it with the most beautiful centerpiece with florals chosen to match your color palette.
The flowers and greenery make this Christmas wedding a romantic and intimate affair and fill your space with the perfect decor for your day.
Setting the Table
One of the most show-stopping areas at your Christmas wedding will be the tables. Rustic farmhouse tables are the perfect choice for this theme. Their character and style don’t need much extra decor to make them feel like they fit right into this space.
Greenery lines the center of the table, and golden candlestick holders with white taper candles are sprinkled throughout to add a touch of romance. Wood slice chargers look lovely underneath place settings at every seat. Vintage silver and glassware complete the look for this rustic Christmas wedding.
Celebrate the most magical time of the year and give it even more meaning with a Christmas wedding.
