Bouquets – The majority of brides choose red flowers for their Christmas wedding with lots of greenery. Although you should not rule out the silver and gold colors they really accent the red and green colors. A nice bridal bouquet for a Christmas themed wedding is red roses surrounded by the greenery with a silver and gold or one of the other attached to the bouquet holder that flows down.
For the toss away bouquet you can make a mini replica of your bridal bouquet and add a few plastic Christmas ornaments such as gold or silver bells.
The maid of honor and bridesmaids bouquets can resemble the brides on a much smaller scale and have the greens inserted in the bouquet instead of surrounding it. To add a little Christmas cheer to the bouquets you can make silver or gold enclosures like you did with the greenery for the brides’ bouquet. Or you can use a chain of silver or gold or both colors of string beads and intertwine them in the bouquet. A small ornament such as a bell or a white dove is a nice added touch as well.
The flower girl can toss red and green rose petals down the isle. Her basket can be decorated in a slightly more child like manner. Using red and green ribbons made from the mulberry paper and white or colored small snowflakes. If she is real young you can add a little plastic Santa clause to her basket. She will love it and your guests will be reminded of how thoughtful you are.
Corsages can be made from mums, Poinsettias or Chrysanthemums. Make the flowers large and use a large green leaf. A little white dove or gold and silver bell set can be attached near the bottom of the flower.
