After a 25-day countdown, it’s finally here…Happy Holidays! We hope you’re spending quality time with loved ones, sipping hot chocolate near the fireplace, and tearing open those presents under the tree. The holidays are the sweetest season to relax and play out in the snow (if it’s a white Christmas), and it’s no wonder plenty of brides plan their weddings around the Holiday cheer. It may be cold outside, but our hearts warmed up just looking at these red and green-inspired touches.

We love this bride, who went all-out in a red wedding dress! On the flipside, deep cranberry or evergreen dresses are incredibly elegant for the affair. Azazie offers four shades of red in Watermelon, Red, Burgundy, or Mulberry and dark green shades like Moss, Emerald, Dark Green, or Peacock! Below, Lilly from The Daily Craving is wearing the stunning Margot in Red and a bridesmaid is rocking the Azazie Briana.
All sorts of winter blooms, like red Icelandic poppies and red dahlias (if you get can them before the first frost) will also be stunners in your holiday inspired bouquet.

While you’re in the Christmas spirit, red bows will always look wonderful! Like the perfect presents, these gorgeous heels featured in Lace and Locks are tied up with a pretty bow.
Put out a variety of cocoa mixes, with toppings like marshmallows, peppermint, milk, sugar, and creamer for wedding guests to customize. Or, who wouldn’t love a hot chocolate bar?

For cakes, pinecone toppers really tie together the entire cake, with the red berries adding a sweet touch (or, serve red velvet for an appropriate dash of color). And why not turn Christmas wreaths into little place cards, using rosemary or olive branches?
If you’re feeling daring, set up mistletoe somewhere in the reception venue for a little surprise! Who knows what could happen? Love is in the air, after all.
