Festive romance

Festive romance

Q. We're getting married near Christmas and want to decorate our venue without going overboard. Do you have any suggestions of how we can incorporate our theme into our big day?

A. The Wedding Team says: Lighting can really transform a venue, so we recommend an abundance of magical fairylights and candles, if you're venue allows, to create a romantic atmosphere.

Popular winter colours include blush and burgundy, plum and emerald, navy and gold and muted jewel tones which are particularly popular for bridesmaids' dresses. Lots of greenery, pinecones and gypsophila are also common around the festive period.

See if you're venue will provide a Christmas tree and then choose some nice decorations to tie in with your colour scheme. You could even give your guests tree decorations or Christmas crackers as favours, these could double up as name cards too.

There is nothing more inviting than the smell of mulled wine and minced pies, so why offer these as a festive alternative to the standard canapés and fizz on arrival?
