Christmas Wedding FavoursBy Emily Tanner
Having a seasonal wedding? Then read on to help you choose those all-important Christmas Wedding Favours.
Getting married in the winter is such a fabulous time of year to wed your beloved. Itís the season thatís full of romance, warmth, cuddles by the fire, winter walks, crispy leaves and of course, the run up to Christmas.
Everyone associates Christmas with love so getting married at this time of year is the epitome of romance. Just imagine all those guests turning up at the stone-clad church on a cold and crisp afternoon, leaves crunching underfoot! Just imagine the cosiness of wedding car as the 2 newly weds head for the reception! And, just imagine the alluring candlelit glow oozing from the windows of the reception venue as arrive!
Many brides who marry at Christmastime have a lifelong fascination with Christmas. It reminds them of happy times and families all being together Ė something that they wish to recreate throughout their own married lives. Some also opt for this time of year as it marks the anniversary of when the bride met her groom. Whatever your reason for getting married at Christmas, let the occasion by filled with joy!
So, how can you make your reception tables look Christmassy? Well, the key is use seasonal flowers as centrepieces and go for Christmas Wedding Favours. Table linen should be crisp and white, place settings adorned with gold and silver and plenty of red! Grand Prix roses mixed with Poinsettia, Holly and Ivy are generally the best choices. Gold-sprayed foliage and pinecones can be interspersed with the flowers. You could also scatter tables with red rose petals and gold ĎMerry Christmasí scatters.
When it comes to the Christmas Wedding Favours, think crackers, winter themed personalised mint tins and gold favour boxes finished with seasonal ribbon. There is so much choice and there is no reason why it needs to look tacky. For the children, you could give them favour boxes filled with gold confectionery or why not go for a Father Christmas shaped favour box? If you are looking to keep it more toned down, why donít you go for plush organza bags in silver or blue, filled with silver confectionery and scatter the tables with blue petals interspersed with scatter snowflake shaped foil confetti. This would give the wedding a cool wintry theme if you wanted to stay away from gold.
Remember, the wedding favours should always tie your other ideas in together so that reception tables look orderly and Ďtogetherí. So, if the bridesmaid dresses are in silver and the waistcoats are in navy, go for silver wedding favour boxes trimmed with navy ribbon. Whatever you choose, ensure your colours are well thought out and provided you donít have too many different ideas running at once, your wedding reception tables are guaranteed to look merry and bright!
