Moodboard: all I want for Christmas is you (to say I do!)


Everyone else might be dreaming of a white Christmas, but you’ve got no time for sleep when you’ve got a winter wedding to plan! If you’re contemplating a Chrimbo theme, ponder the different forms this could take. Frozen-esque silver and icy blue, with a snowflake motif? Or rich red and bottle green with everything trimmed with gold grosgrain ribbon? Tempting as it may be to turn your venue into a grotto, remember to keep your inner Buddy the Elf in check, before you’re on the naughty list for dressing the ushers and bridesmaids as your reindeer.
