The holiday season is a magical time of year. With the first snowfall of the year and spending time family by your side, there’s an air of festivity that seems to take hold during the holiday season. It is a time of love and celebration, and is why some couples decide to tie the knot around Christmas time. Second Vision Entertainment has played many Christmas-themed weddings and other holiday events, and we have seen some really unique and wonderful ideas that couples have done.
Using holly and winter leaves to create a natural tiara for the bride is a thing of beauty and can really make the festive wedding feel like Christmas. These seasonal contrasts really paint the picture of a holiday season wedding, especially against the bride’s white dress. She will look like a winter beauty and all eyes will be on her.
Under the Mistletoe
After both the bride and groom have said “I do,” they may kiss under the mistletoe. This traditional sign of the season can be a fun flourish as part of a ceremony, or serve as a cutesy addition to your reception hall, encouraging the other happy couples in attendance to celebrate with a smooch.
A Touch of Pine
Once the ceremony is over and people head to the reception, using pinecones as place card holders is a really nice detail that can help create a winter scene. Pinecones are one of the things often associated with the Christmas tree, and are commonly spotted on top of the snow in the early winter as they drop from the tree. When your attendees are looking for their table, have their card waiting for them neatly wedged in the notches of a pinecone.
Festive Chords and Carols
What brings a Christmas-themed wedding the most life, though, is a band that plays music in the spirit of the season. Second Vision Entertainment has some of the most talented musicians who can play live holiday music for your wedding or reception. Imagine dancing with your guests to a beautiful rendition of the jazz hit “Christmas Time Is Here,” or having one of your first slow dances serenaded by that old Bing Crosby classic “White Christmas.”
If you’re dreaming a White Christmas wedding, let Second Vision Entertainment turn your holiday wishes into reality. We can play a great selection of contemporary, classic and Christmas tunes to give you the balance you need to keep your guests having fun all throughout the festive festivities!
