Winter weddings are becoming more and more popular, especially around Christmas.
There can be lots of reasons for this; from wanting a real white wedding with snow, making everything look so magical to maybe making the wedding budget go further by having the wedding 'out of season'.
Brides getting married in church around Christmas can benefit from having the church already decorated, with flowers and even Christmas trees, without it costing them a penny. Of course this works best if the Bride is having a Christmas/winter theme for her wedding, as this will then match the bouquets, buttonholes, etc.
Traditional Christmas colours are red, gold, white and green. Keep costs low when planning your venue decor, by using lots of evergreen foliages (ivy, holly, pine, cupressus) with just a few flowers to inject colour. Traditional wreaths of holly and ivy with red or white roses, gypsophila and pine cones look amazing when placed as a table centrepiece. Complete the look with a hurricane lamp containing a big church candle.
