Festive Wedding Décor Ideas

If like many couples you have decided on a winter wedding, what better than to make it a holiday themed wedding. If you love the idea of a festive wedding but don’t know where to start, take a look at our four favourite festive wedding décor ideas.


Autumnal Tones

Nothing is more festive than the warm browns of falling leaves! Incorporate them in your foliage, flower arrangements, table clothes, and candles. This sets the colour scheme for the whole wedding, which is one less decision to make. It is also super easy for wedding guests to match with so you will end up with really cohesive looking wedding photos.


Kitsch Xmas Decs

Why not go all out kitsch for your festive wedding and decorate with faux gifts and baubles? You can take this to any level of extreme you like. Individual baubles as place settings will be a gorgeous gift for guests to take home, or alternatively you can festoon the place with evergreen garlands dripping with decorations. If the latter you must ensure you include candy canes galore for the ultimate kitsch factor.

Nothing screams the holidays more than fireworks. You must ensure that you get venue permission first before attempting a firework display, and make sure it is legal in the area. If big fireworks aren’t possible, you can hand out sparklers to your guests for some gorgeous after dark wedding photos.


Sweet Inspiration

We love the idea of taking décor inspiration from your favourite festive treats. For example, mulled wine lovers could include dried fruits and burgundy tones in their decorations. Meanwhile gingerbread men or a gingerbread house instead of a wedding cake both make fun festive wedding additions.


Honourable Mentions

If none of these tickle your fancy, here is a quick run-down of other things we would love to see at a festive wedding.

  • Mulled wine fountain
  • Baroque cherub wedding cake
  • Mini wrapped gifts as table settings
  • Gilded leaves (this is an easy DIY)
  • Seasonal foliage like Ivy, holly and of course mistletoe
  • Christmas carols during your church service
  • A cheese course (of course)
