Holiday Weddings

Valentine’s Day Wedding
In exchange for your invitations, make them look as though they were Valentine cards instead. Serve your guests heart shaped cakes, candies, cookies, etc., and a rich meal by candle light. Place a bottle of wine on each table with ice buckets and glasses. Decorate with deep dark red, mauve, or light pink colored flowers and candles, adding a very romantic effect to your ceremony. Give your guests candy red hots as favors, or small bottles of massage oil.

Easter Wedding
Choose to wear a light and airy flowing dress in pure white or a pastel color. Serve your guests lamb or fish with a nice white wine, and chocolate bunnies for desert. After hiding colored eggs around the reception area, hand each of your guests their own basket filled with grass and send them off on an Easter egg hunt.

New Year’s/Fourth of July Wedding
What better way to show your patriotism than to theme your wedding with red, white, and blue? Decorate with appropriate colored candles, flowers, streamers, and small flags. Feed your guests all American apple pie and serve barbequed food fresh from the grill. Dress the groomsman in dark blue, the bridesmaids in deep red, and both the bride and groom in pure white. Hand your guests sparklers and small fireworks instead of rice, and send them off with an American flag.

Thanksgiving Wedding
Serve your guests the perfect holiday meal, complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and steamed vegetables. Dress everyone up as Pilgrims and/or Native Americans for added excitement. Decorate with corn stalks, pumpkins, and brightly colored candles. Send your guests off with a beaded necklace, a small mandella, a dreamcatcher, or another traditional gift commonly given by Native Americans.

Christmas Wedding
Serve your guests turkey, ham, cranberries, sugar cookies, and a rich red wine. Decorate with holly berries, silver bells, red and white flowers, and strings of lights. Dress your bridesmaids in dark green or red velvet dresses. Ride away in a horsedrawn sleigh and have your guests sing carols. Use birdseed for confetti.

Halloween Wedding
Have everyone dress in their own unique costumes. Decorate with fake spider webs, jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows, and play ghoulish music in the background. Serve your guests soup from a Witch’s brew pot, Halloween candy, pumpkin pie, spaghetti shaped as a brain, and so on. Use dried pumpkin seeds as confetti.
