Holiday weddings have a special place amongst weddings as they bring the magic and love of the holidays to every guest. It’s not difficult to impress guests and create memories when you bring the beautiful decor and spirit of the season into the wedding and reception, and there are plenty of ways to do so. Consider some of the following methods and get ready to have a day you’ll cherish forever.
When securing a location for wedding or reception, one can save big when they consider places that already will have plenty of Christmas decor up. Local gardens, museums and country clubs will likely be adorned with twinkling lights, garland, Christmas trees and more. All one has to do is inquire.
That is one less step needed in the planning process, and who doesn’t love that? Be sure to ask exactly what the decor will be so table toppers and linens can match. One way to learn of great venues is to inquire with the chosen wedding catering in Orange County that is secured. They have plenty of experience and can steer the happy couple in the right direction for the reception.
Ornaments are perhaps the best element to decorate with! They come in all sizes perfect for centerpieces, boutonnieres, and floral arrangements. Tiny ornaments may even be able to float in punch bowls, but check with the wedding catering; Orange County caterers may have rules that prevent them from doing something like that. If they can’t be there, another great spot is upon the guests’ plates, allowing them a memory to take home.
Regardless, they come in all colors and finishes to include shiny, glittery and satin which are all perfect for any color scheme.
Wedding Photo Booth
A wedding photo booth is the perfect distraction for arriving guests to have fun and allow the wedding catering company in Orange County to set up or add finishing touches, which they’ll appreciate.
Booths can have Santa hats, mistletoe, jingle bells and other fun holiday props that will allow guests to create family or couple photos that they’ll cherish forever. Even the bride and groom can get in on some of the photos!
A Horse Drawn Carriage
What better way for the bride and groom to arrive or depart the nuptials than in a horse drawn carriage adorned with holly, garland and jingle bells. The guests will love seeing them arrive in a classic holiday way and it makes for wonderful pictures.
Many find having the guests blow bubbles is the closest thing to snow, but a snow machine can be rented as well and is quite inexpensive. The machine can be used wherever the couple desires, even in the reception venue, provided they’ve gotten permission.As an added precaution, be sure the machine isn’t set up where the food is. Inquire with the wedding catering company from Orange County that is chosen to be sure.
Serve Traditional Treats
Consider serving eggnog and apple cider at the reception, or even incorporate gingerbread for a cake flavor. The easiest way to incorporate flavors of the season is to work with the wedding catering company in Orange County to see what ideas they have.
S’mores is a fun station for children and adults at the wedding, as well as hot cocoa. The ideas are endless, classic and fun.
The look and smell of pine will transport guests to a wintery wonderland. Make sure to incorporate it with the decor. Pine cones work wonderfully in bouquets, garland, and centerpieces as well as on the cake table among other options.
Fresh pine trees are an option too! They can easily add the pine look and scent, and can be decorated any way the happy couple chooses in order to match the colors and theme.
