Festive Décor for Weddings with a Holiday or Christmas Theme

Deck the halls with boughs of holly – and these merry wedding decorations!

The holiday season is a magical time of year, making it the perfect time to start a new life together as husband and wife. If your wedding date falls during the winter months and you love festive décor, consider a holiday or Christmas theme for your nuptials. 

Invite loved ones and excite their holiday spirt with a wedding invitation suite featuring sparkling elements, a holly motif, or festive plaid details. Complement a traditional Christmas color scheme and dress bridesmaids in ruby red, and add miniature pinecones and evergreens to bouquets. Consider a candlelight service during a church ceremony, or decorate the venue for your vow exchange with wreaths and plenty of candlelight. Travel to the reception site with your beloved on a horse-drawn sleigh, and adorn dinner tables with yuletide details. Send guests home with cookies, or decorate your wedding car with a wreath – the festive options are endless.

In the spirit of Christmas and the holiday season, we've rounded up 12 ways to implement a festive theme for your wedding ceremony and reception. Gather inspiration from the images below, and click on the photos to discover even more holiday décor from these wedding events!
