10 Ways To Win At Festive Weddings

If you’re getting married at Christmas, it’s the perfect opportunity to incorporate some festive themes into your big day – whether you want to go all out, or just have a subtle nod to the season, we’ve got plenty of ideas to share some festive cheer.

Here are some top tips to make your Christmas wedding special:

  1. Floral Headwear

While the glitz and glam of crystal hair pieces work during this season too, you could go for something different and have a winter-themed floral crown.

  1. Festive Décor

From centre pieces to bunting, you can do tons of things to incorporate the Christmas season into your wedding. Think fairy lights, candy canes, snowflakes, baubles, tinsel, Santa hats, ivy, and even fake snow.

  1. Selfie Mirror NI

Everyone knows how popular the Photo Booth has become, but now there’s a new craze in town – the Selfie Mirror. An advanced digital technology experience, your guest will be invited to walk in front of the interactive Wedding Mirror, where extraordinary colourful animations will appear, as if by magic, behind the glass.

The mirror allows for photo filters, guest signatures, video messages and even games to be played, and custom designs can be incorporated so you can go all out with the festive theme.


  1. Winter Cover-ups

From faux fur trimmed capes, to lush wedding winter coats, cosy boleros, and everything in between. Up the style stakes of your big day by kitting out the Bridal Party in the season’s key on-trend pieces.

  1. Festive Treats

Instead of the much appreciated traditional buffet in the evening, why not opt to serve guests party snacks and finger foods associated with the Christmas season?

From a cheeseboard, to crisps and dips, and from mince pies to yule logs, there are loads of foods associated with Christmas that are perfect for snacking on.

  1. Mistletoe

Not only great for decoration, mistletoe strategically placed throughout the venue might even help spark some new romantic interests among guests!

  1. Christmas Socks

Give the male members of the Bridal Party some Christmas themed socks, and watch as your photographer gets to work making some fun memories.

  1. Mark Traditions

Is it even Christmas without a tin of Roses or Quality Street? Have a couple of tins of sweets throughout the venue, for guests to dip into for a sweet treat.

  1. Christmas Gifts

Give wedding guests personalised baubles as wedding favours – thoughtful and practical, a memento of your big day will become part of their annual tree decorating tradition.

  1. Christmas Playlist

We can’t help ourselves Christmas tunes fill everyone with joy and fill a dance floor. The Wedding DJ NI is on hand to help you create a festive playlist that is sure to leave your guest feeling jolly!
