Traditional Christmas Wedding Decor

13th December 2015 |By | Be the first to comment

Today we get festive as we look at traditional Christmas wedding decor, from brilliant green and vivid reds to brilliant metallics and dramatic purple.


Deck the halls with boughs of holly! Green is a hugely festive colour, and you’ll be hard-pressed to get through any Christmas wedding without seeing it included somewhere. Christmas trees and holly, wreaths and ivy—all look glorious, especially when accented with glints of gold and glitter.


Red is one of the trademark colours of Christmas, so it’s no surprise that it’s so popular. It’s vivid, and conjures images of tinsel and baubles, big bows and wrapping paper, mulled wine and Father Christmas. And, of course, romance!

Mix red with green, white, and gold to give nods to seasonal trimmings like holly berries and mistletoe, candy canes, twinkling lights, and elaborate floral displays. Christmas Flowers |

Purple is one of the primary colours of advent and makes for stunning wedding decor. Break the tradition of a red-and-green Christmas by using a rich, royal violet alongside bright metallics like shimmering gold. You’re sure to create an enchanting wedding ceremony and reception.

A silver Christmas wedding is everything bright and glamorous. Glittering garlands and acrylic crystals, snowflake motifs and sparkly glitter, use your silver theme with hues of white and light grey to create your own gorgeous winter wonderland.
