There are few times in the year that bring everyone together in such a way, so when you couple the festive season with a wedding you know it is going to be a very special day!
If you have chosen late December as a wedding date embrace the Christmas spirit and use it as inspiration to make your day unique.
One of the very budget friendly aspects of a December wedding is that most venues will already be decorated. You can carry this through to your table decorations so it all pulls together as a complete colour scheme.

How could we do a Christmas inspiration post and not include those baubles that were such a hit from last weeks post, found here
You do not have to use reds and greens as a colour scheme to incorporate a bit of Christmas in your day, lavender crackers found here
Food is one place you can completely embrace the theme for Christmas. Cranberry fizz or mulled wine for pre dinner drinks, pigs in blankets as canapes, smoked salmon starter, Turkey dinner and yule log for dessert- sounds like a pretty perfect wedding breakfast to us!
If that’s too much maybe look at incorporating aspects into the evening buffet such as mini mince pies found here.
Or gingerbread men on your wedding cake…
