Whether Christmas brings out your inner child or the thought of present shopping fills you with dread, the 25th December is on its way!
Lots of couples pray for glorious sunshine and cloudless skies on their wedding day, but there are just as many dreaming of a winter wonderland and a venue filled with beautiful seasonal colours.
As a venue dresser, the festive season offers a fresh opportunity to get creative and be inspired by the ever changing flora and weather, probably more so than any other season. The possibilities are plentiful and spectacular whether it be festive themed chair covers, glistening snowflakes hanging from wintery wishing trees or icy blues setting the mood.
The vibrant greens & reds will lift the inevitably gloomy weather outside whilst a cool pale décor will compliment the brilliant white or warming ivory of a wedding dress. Of course, it’s important to ensure your guests aren’t feeling the cold and a warm LED backdrop will create a romantic glow and cosy atmosphere.
The winter theme runs seamlessly throughout the day with mulled wine and hot chocolate (especially with a dash of rum) offering welcome refreshment, stark landscapes creating dramatic photograph opportunities and for a bit more fun, a selection of Christmas number 1’s will be sure to fill the dance floor into the evening.
The Christmas period focuses on spending time with family, friends and loved ones. A wedding offers the ideal opportunity to do just that so if you haven’t considered a winter wedding, just remember the fun and cheer that Christmas can bring to all. We cannot escape the cold days and darkening evenings but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be celebrated. After all, you can always jet off somewhere much warmer for the Honeymoon and thaw your toes out.
In a few weeks time, we will be transforming a beautiful venue into a bright festive playground with twinkling backdrop, miniature Christmas tree table centres, fake snow and even boxes wrapped as presents. The cake is snowflake themed and the place settings are held in little sleighs. All we need is a DJ dressed as an elf and it will be like Santa’s grotto! Keep an eye on our website and Facebook for the pictures.
