Christmas is around the corner, Fairies; and to get you into the festive season, we’ve put together the Wedded Wonderland’s team’s tips on how to create the perfect Christmas-themed wedding (minus any tacky decorations).
No, we don’t mean getting hitched at the North Pole or creating a clichéd winter wonderland; instead, we want to show you some simple ways you can create the stylish wedding of your dreams – with a festive twist!
1. Festive Florals
Christmas florals can be some of the most gorgeous and unique blooms. Look for a bouquet that includes red, green and white, not only will it bring some yuletide joy to your big day, but this colour palette contrasts perfectly with a white gown!

3. Ladies in Red
Clothing and accessories play a huge role in the wedding theme… Choosing a shade of red for the bridesmaid dresses is a bold and show-stopping look – perfect for the bride who wants her ‘maids to share the spotlight with her on the wedding day! Be sure to use the matching shade for the groomsmen to follow through with the color scheme.

6. Light Up the Night
What’s Christmas without lights? We love, love, love fairy lights and candle clusters, not only are the uber pretty, but they’re a HUGE styling trend this season. Including one or both of these will not only light up your big day but give the Christmas theme a glamorous feel.
