If Christmas is knocking at the doors and winter has already made the landscape in front of you snow covered and your wedding is round the corners, then nothing can be more suitable than planning a snowflake themed Christmas wedding. If you have already decided to have such a theme wedding to celebrate the chill and the snow all around, then you must consider some important things that will be essential for your plannings of snowflake themed Christmas wedding.
1. Perfect bridal gown
Wearing the perfect bridal gown that will do justice with your theme is very important. Thus, when the traditional white color of bridal trousseau will predominate in your wedding, you must be careful to replace the sequins, rhinestone and silk thread embroidery in it with encrusted snowflake designs. You can experiment with some artificial furs and feathers around your neckline, sleeves and hemline to accentuate the snowflake look. You can further wear a train made of thin sheath of faux fabric to create a dreamy sequence.
2. Wedding gown accessories
The various accessories that you must wear with your snowflake wedding gown must be carefully chosen so that they reflect the snowflake Christmas theme. Flaunt a stylish and light shawl or cloak over your wedding gown which must be made from pure cashmere or fuax fur. You can incorporate specific Christmas based colors like red, green and gold. Wear gloves that reach your elbow and see to it that it is made out of faux fur so that you look all snowy and dreamy. Indulge in a Christmas hairstyle that will focus on a loosely tied bun at your nape with loose strands hanging carelessly from here and there. Decorate your hair with fake red berries, snowflakes, etc. instead of traditional ornaments.
3. Bridesmaids’ and flower girl dresses
Special attention must be given on the bridesmaids’ dresses too. So, ask them to wear dresses that are custom made and have trimmings of faux and fur. You must also ask them to stick to Christmas colors like bright red, fresh green and dazzling gold with lots of ribbon and fur detailing. The dress of the flower girl must also be of similar essence and predominantly in the color of Christmas. Instruct her to scatter fake snow along with seasonal flower all the way you walk, so that your wedding theme is done justice with.
4. Attire of the bridegroom
Since your wedding theme can never be complete without your bridegroom, so his attire must also reflect the snowflake Christmas wedding theme. You can ask your groom to wear a black tuxedo with a tie bearing any of the dominant colors of the season. Ask him to wear a cravet in the matching color to complete the look. Go for cufflinks that have imprints of olives, berries or mistletoe on them to make him look completely ready for the theme wedding.
5. Customized transport
Instead of a conventional transport to carry the groom party or the bride party to the wedding party, you can incorporate innovative ideas of transportation, like a horse driven chariot with the driver dressed in the robes of Santa Claus and having long, white bears, so that your transport suits your theme.
6. Special flowers of the season
Carefully choose flowers that are seasonal and suit well with your snowflake themed Christmas wedding. Consult your florist regarding this and look out for flowers like red roses, red carnations, lilies, helbore, mistletoe, ivy etc.
7. Invitation card
Your wedding invitation card must also reflect the theme of your wedding. Make your own customized envelopes and wedding cards that have both of your snaps on it with decorations of snowflakes, berries, bells, olives, etc. all around, which will go well with your wedding theme.
8. Decorating the venue
Your wedding venue must include a Christmas tree as a centerpiece adorned with fake snowflakes. Work further on your theme by stacking all the wedding gifts you get from your invitees under this unique Christmas center piece. Decorate your wedding venue further with snow statues, snow blackets, etc.
9. Decorating the table
Decorate the dining tables in snow white colored linen with runners in Christmas colors like red, green, gold, etc. For the center piece decorations on each of the tables, insist on artificial snow flakes, seasonal flowers and fruits. Arrange for table napkins that bear the colors of Christmas too.
10. Theme wedding cake
The traditional Christmas cake is a fruit cake and the wedding cake is cream cake. What you can do for your snowflake themed Christmas wedding is that go for fruit cakes smeared fully with vanilla cream and decorated further with red berries, olives, maple leaves, dolls representing Santa, angels, etc. It will be perfect for your wedding theme.
