How can you bring a festive flair to your wedding day? From colour schemes, exploding with rich reds, luxurious golds, and striking silvers, to the comforting glow of a thousand fairy lights: there are many ways to add a touch of Christmas magic to your wedding day.
Winter is a wonderful season for stylish accessories. Silver, diamonds, vintage crystal – all of these will make beautiful accessories, which celebrate the magical feel of wintertime. You can also bring in the different natural winter elements into your jewellery: acorns, snowflakes, and the outlines of winter trees.
Floral crowns can also be perfectly styled for a festive wedding; go for luscious greenery, rich, red berries, and winter foliage; or a gorgeous, festive floral crown.
Faux fur is another thing to embrace, for a festive, winter wedding. Don a gorgeous fur coat, or a beautiful fur shawl to keep you warm and glamorous throughout your wedding day. White fur will be perfect for a winter bride.
Adding a touch of sparkle is another wonderful way to bring in some festive style to your bridal look. Shoes styled in sparkles, or metallic colours, can look striking against the crisp white aura of a bridal dress. Adorning your dress or veil with crystal beads, is another way to delight in the glitz and glamour of winter festivities.
Celebrate the festive season with seasonal makeup
Nail polish in a shimmery, pillar box red, or bold red lipstick; will look striking and festive on a winter bride. Eye-shadows in shimmery silvers, beiges, blush pinks, and golds will bring warmth and glitz to a bridal look. You can also play around with festive jewel-toned nail polish.
Christmas is related to comforting, luxurious shades and tones, bringing a lovely feel to any wedding day. Gold and red, are the go-to shades to indulge in, for a festive, celebratory feel. You can include festive hues in a variety of ways: decorate your dining tables with bright red tablecloths.
While gold and red are the traditional festive shades. They give a warm, cheerful glow to any wedding. In contrast, for a unique look that celebrates the charming weather of the season: why not go for silver and white? Silver and white will provide a fresh and sophisticated feel to any wedding reception, and will bring out the shades of your wedding dress and suit.

Go for a festive soundtrack
We all have our favourite Christmas tunes, and a festive soundtrack can deepen the elements of warmth and celebration of any wedding day. Have a band play their own festive renditions for an extra-special feel.
Bringing in some festive magic to your wedding will add to the magic of the day, as the Metro note, “Christmas is a magical time of year, so what better time to tie the knot? Christmas weddings are the perfect chance to show off your personality and show your guests the time of their lives (helped along by some festive cheer, of course).”
