Christmas Wedding Invitations
You want you wedding invitation to reflect this festive season, but at the same time, you do not want your invitation to be mistaken for a holiday card. To help you avoid this blunder, forgo a folded card and instead use a traditional, thick white card with a border and engraved text. You can highlight the Christmas wedding theme with a border of white snowflakes, an elegant holiday trim, or with a drawing of a poinsettia.
Since many of your guests will most likely be making plans for the holidays, you will want to send your invitations out early to ensure as many people as possible attend. It is recommended to send your invitations out about twelve weeks before the event. As an extra precaution, you can send “save the date” cards even earlier.
A festive idea for your cake can be to have each tier decorated like an individually wrapped Christmas gift. You could also do a take on a yule log with a tiered chocolate cake that has holy cascading down the side.
A trending look for winter wedding bridesmaids is to have them wear long dresses with shrugs and a big faux-fur muff. To further help evoke your theme, you can dress them in your wedding colors or give them other winter accessories.
