Christmas Wedding Decor Ideas

In this post, I will be sharing some simple Christmas wedding decor ideas for creative brides! Hosting a wedding during the Christmas season can be dreamy and romantic. In fact, adding warmth and a cozy vibe to your wedding doesn’t need to cost a fortune. One of the best ways to save money is to do some of the decorations yourself. On top of that, you have the opportunity to make things extra personal that way and to get your friends and family involved in the whole process!

Michigan Winter Weddings

Winter is a time when families traditionally come together and celebrate being together. A coat of freshly fallen snow creates a peaceful environment and highlights the warmth of being together with loved ones. While many people are drawn to summer as the season to get married, winter provides a cozy and festive vibe.

However, winter weddings can be a challenge to plan. The good news is -with a little creativity you can create an amazing, and affordable, experience. If you are creative bride who dreams of an intimate and elegant winter wedding and is in search of ideas, check out these festive and personalized DIY Christmas wedding décor ideas from Karen and Matthew’s Christmas-themed Wedding at IMA Brookwood. 

Custom-Made Wooden Head Table Sign

First of all, it’s always a good idea to customize your wedding logo! Karen’s talented friend, Christina, designed a wedding monogram with their initials. I especially love how this logo was used consistently in the reception area. It really completes the DIY winter wedding theme.

Mini-Pine Tree Centerpiece

One of the easiest DIY Christmas wedding decor ideas is to make your own centerpiece! For example, use a mini-pine tree centerpiece to add a natural touch to your whimsical winter wedding. You can never go wrong with the combination of winter berries and pine cones for winter weddings!

In a world of digital printing, hand-written place cards are a great personal touch. It can take a while so start early and get some friends together for a decorating party! 

Rustic Wood Pallet Seating Chart

Next, a DIY rustic wedding seating chart with string lights is a lovely and unique way to display the seating arrangement. And don’t forget to decorate it with ornament place cards. It is a quick and easy project to give your guests a warm and cozy feeling as soon as they walk into the reception area.

Arrow and Heart Wedding Wire ‘Pie Topper’

This simple and classic custom wedding topper is made with gold wire. The custom monogram is perfect for showcasing your pies in style!

Lush Greens Winter Wreath

Adding some festive wreaths in the reception area can really highlight a Christmas-themed wedding. In fact, evergreen boughs are relatively inexpensive and, while a little sticky, can be easily shaped to compliment a variety of winter styles.

IMA Brookwood Golf & Banquet Center

This beautiful DIY winter wedding took place at the IMA Brookwood Golf & Banquet Center. The fact that the bride and groom as well as their friends and family took such an active role in both designing and creating the decorations made the ceremony and reception feel particularly intimate. The many personal touches really showcased the personality of the couple and it truly felt like their wedding.
