Do you love Christmastime? Are you getting married? Why not combine these two exciting celebrations and have a beautifully festive wedding to commemorate the most romantic day of your life?
We’re not saying you need to have a traditional red and green colour scheme and eat fruit cake and plum pudding all night long, but with some careful planning and creativity, you can easily add a festive touch to your December wedding in Perth.
Christmas-Themed Wedding Catering
When we think of Christmas-style food, the first thing to come to mind is traditional roast dinners with rich meats and hearty roast potatoes, followed by decadent desserts or an all-time Australian favourite, Pavlova.
Take some inspiration from our Christmas party catering suggestions and opt for a flavourful meal of roast turkey breast, tender roast pork and honey-glazed leg hams. Add in some maple-roasted pumpkin, jacket potatoes with sour cream and chives and pistachio biscotti and balsamic strawberries, and you’ve got yourself a feast.
Festive Wedding Décor
While the most recognisable Yuletide colour scheme is a combination of intense hues like berry red and emerald green, your décor can be made up of a clean, pale palette with gold accents, and silver or bronze hues for an added festive touch.
Think warm candlelight, lightly-glittered pinecones, delicate lace and layered greenery.
For a pop of colour, build displays out of cinnamon sticks and nuts and add in vibrant cherries or pomegranates for a bit of that Yuletide spirit. The addition of cinnamon and fruit will also add a deliciously festive fragrance to your ceremony and reception space that will add to the appeal of your theme.
Choosing Your Dress and Flowers
Much like your décor, when choosing your dress and flowers you can either opt for a vibrant palette, or something subtler. Big blooms with sprigs of greenery will pair perfectly with your Christmas theme, and once again, sneaking some cinnamon sticks in amongst the greenery will add a festive touch, as will a light sprinkling of golden glitter.
When it comes to choosing your dress, try to pair it with the overall style of your wedding. If you’ve gone for a big festive-style filled with extravagant touches and heavily decorated pine trees, a dress with a hoop or layers of tulle will be on-point. However, if you’ve gone for a subtler Christmas theme, opt for delicate lace and a simpler skirt.
