How to Decorate for Your Holiday Wedding

Cold winter weather is no big deal to anyone who lives in Minnesota. When you’re getting married and having your wedding there anyway, why not do it over the holidays? It’s a festive time, and a lot of people get time off from work or school over the Christmas holiday season, so planning a wedding during this time is practical and convenient. So while the outside temperature is well below freezing, you can warm up the hearts and souls of your guests by welcoming them into a warm and inviting space – for your ceremony and the reception.

From wintery icy white to traditional Christmas red and green or something more luxurious and blinged out, we’ve assembled some suggestions to help you come up with your own unique decorating scheme for a holiday wedding – whether you embrace the holidays in deciding on your wedding theme, or come up with an idea that’s off the beaten path.

Winter Cube This arrangement is full of white and green flowers and greenery, including roses, button poms, hypericum berries, pine or evergreen boughs and pine cones, all brought together with a Hawaiian Ti leaf ribbon. You’ve got modern elegance and tropical exoticism in one absolutely stunning arrangement.

Feliz Navidad Cube The cube starts out with red glass rocks and curly willow to hold the flowers in place. This arrangement is passionate about Christmas with its red carnations, roses, and tulips. Accents of fragrant greenery, faux berries and glittering red leaves give this arrangement the festiveness one expects from holiday décor.


If you are looking for a bit of rustic exoticism, you will find that and more with Orchid Classic. The basis of the arrangement is cymbidium and dendrobium orchids. The vase is filled with delicate holiday greens, faux berries. Snow-capped pine cones, shimmering gold leaves, and a rustic burlap and rope ribbon.

Embrace the holiday theme with elegance and sophistication with Holiday Orchids and Roses. This arrangement comes in a cube – making it perfect for table centerpieces – so they are low enough that people can talk to one another across the table easily. Velvety red roses are combined with cymbidium roses, sprinkled with accents of Christmas greenery and hypericum berries and made more festive with coordinating green ball ornaments.
