5. Christmas Tree
Of course, what is Christmas without a tree? You can install a large-sized one for a majestic photo backdrop or use it as a major focal point on the day. Otherwise, you can opt for multiple miniature trees and use them as table centrepieces.
Invite Rudolph to your wedding and let him mingle with your guests! Reindeer can be a charming accent to your wedding decorations just like in this gorgeous cake.

Go for eye-catching and sparkly outfits for your bridesmaids to resemble all the glitz and glamour of the holiday season. Indeed, this is a chic touch for a modern Christmas wedding!
A romantic Christmas will not be complete without a mistletoe! Insert it in your bridal bouquet or install it in the photo backdrop, so your guests can snap a photo sharing a kiss underneath. It will certainly make for a good Instagram-worthy shot!
Use foliage as a finishing touch to your D.I.Y gift boxes for your bridal party, or go grand and welcome your guests with a lush foliage arch paired with red florae. There is no denying that greens add such a fresh touch to your decorations!
Whether you’re serving hot tablea cocoa or a dessert cocktail, add some marshmallows to the drink to transform it into a delightful treat! This will surely leave all the sweet tooths wanting some more.
