Top 5 ideas for a Christmas Inspired Wedding

21st November 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we love Christmas here at Dode! As a beautifully romantic and enchanting venue, The Lost Village of Dode is the perfect location to indulge in the festivities with a Christmas wedding. Christmas doesn’t need to just be turkey and tinsel, so we thought we’d share with you our top 5 ideas for a Christmas inspired Wedding.

  1. Winter Wonderland White – Embrace the winter season with an ivory and white wedding, making use of the winter surroundings and accenting with white floral arrangements and table dressings.
  2. Classic Red and Green – What about a timeless Red and Green wedding theme? Ruby reds and gorgeous greens lend themselves to a festive wedding. Floral arrangements including red roses, holly, spruce branches, pine cones and red berries are perfect for this merry occasion – and don’t forget the mulled wine!
  3. Enchanting Emerald Green – If you’re looking for a nod to a classic Christmas colour scheme but are unprepared to go “all in”; what about an Emerald Green inspired theme? The deep green shade is perfect for a winter wedding and provides a touch of elegance, without being too over-the-top.
  4. Woodland Christmas – If you’re thinking of something more organic and rustic – what about incorporating a ‘Woodland’ theme into your Christmas wedding? Make use of pine cones, rich green foliage and wooden accents and details to bring this theme together. At Dode, we have carved oak wooden benches which work beautifully with this style.
  5. Velvet and Fur – When considering the dress code and attire for a Christmas wedding, two materials that perfectly lend themselves to the cooler temperatures are velvet and fur. What about dressing your groomsmen in velvet suits? Or your bridesmaids in faux fur shawls to keep them warm?
