Christmas is just around the corner and to help get you in the festive mood we’re delivering a dose of Christmas glitz and glamour to your inbox today!

Christmas weddings have become increasingly popular over the years with many couples choosing the holiday season to celebrate their wedding day with friends and family. Hotels and venues are bursting with Christmas spirit, guests are welcomed with Christmas trees, wreaths, baubles and fairylights – oh my gosh, what better way to kick start your celebrations! It’s the perfect excuse to add some glitz and glamour to your styling!

Burgundy, marsala and gold

An elegant festive colour palette that has just the right amount of warmth and sparkle to bring your styling to life. Deeper tones of burgundy provide a rich contrast against brighter pops of pink and a base layer of glamorous sequins will reflect your candlelight for maximum impact. There’s nothing more magical than the glow of shimmering table decor when night time falls!

Christmas Decorations

Christmas accessories are such an effective way of adding a personal festive touch whether that be to the centrepieces, place settings or chair decor. Just a subtle nod towards the season can be enough such as vases filled with baubles, sprigs of festive foliage or gold foiled lettering on your place cards and menus.

Top tip – Why not switch out your silver cutlery for gold cutlery for a luxury finish!

Wedding Table Dressing

Mood Lighting

Let’s be honest, no winter wedding is complete without a boat load of candlelight! With so many options available to you, it’s worth speaking to your Ambience stylist about what style would be best to create the look you have in mind. You might want to consider coloured candles, pillar candles, floating candles, taper candles or maybe even scented candles to fill the room with the scent of Christmas!

Textured Styling

Winter brings a mix of beautiful foliage that can be used to inject texture to your styling. Adding stems of eucalyptus, ruscus, pistache, ivy or spruce will instantly transform the look. Depending on the feel you want to create you might want to opt for simple stems of foliage within your decor or for a more impactful look, consider garlands of foliage that can be added to your tables, staircases and fireplaces.
