Holiday Wedding Themes & Bridal Shower Themes
Having your wedding around the Christmas season means you can draw inspiration from the time-honored traditions associated with the holiday. For holiday decorations, fill the room with poinsettias, use sprigs of pine and holly in the centerpieces, and don't forget to hang mistletoe under each threshold! Christmas favors can be Christmas tree ornaments of any shape and size, wrapped up in a beautiful gift box and tied with festive pretty ribbon. Even stack them under a Christmas tree for each guest to take. Use holiday themed place card holders, or simply tie place cards to candy canes and put one on each setting. For the kids, a bubblegum Santa Claus is sure to be big hit. For winter themed weddings, Beau-coup offers a fabulous selection of winter wedding favors and decorations.
Valentine's Day is undoubtedly the most romantic day of the year. Having a wedding on Valentine's Day is not only appropriate, but it comes with a built-in theme, and some simple, classic motifs. You can't go wrong with red roses on Valentine's Day. Use them everywhere, in your bouquet, centerpieces, on the cake, even toss rose petals on the tables, and down the aisle. Bathe your guests in warm candlelight. For an extra romantic look, cluster wide candles in cream color of varying heights together. Sprinkle heart shaped confetti around the centerpieces. For favors, give rich chocolate truffles packaged in beautiful favor boxes, and tied with pretty ribbons, or anything in the shape of a heart. Doves, or lovebirds also make great motifs.
New Year. It is tradition to bring in each new year with a huge bash. Why not celebrate a marriage with the same excitement. Since part of the fun of a New Year's party to getting dressed up, make it a black-tie event. Decorate with lots of balloons, streamers and confetti. Make sure there is plenty of champagne to go around, and all kinds of noisemakers for the countdown. Use mini champagne buckets for place card holders, then fill the buckets up with candy favors and send them home with guests. If possible, arrange for a fireworks display, or choose a location where you know one can be viewed.
Start your Easter wedding with a beautiful church ceremony. Line the aisle with lilies in pastel shades. Take advantage of the beauty of Spring and have an outdoor, lunch reception. Choose a setting with a lush, green lawn. For centerpieces, baskets of delicately decorated eggs, personalized for each guest to take home as a favor. Keep the look clean and fresh with white linens and few adornments. Organize an egg hunt for the kids, and even hide an adorable set of Spring chick salt and pepper shakers as a prize. Beau-coup offers a wonderful selection of spring themed wedding favors including personalized plantable seed cards, mini garden favor pails and more.
