How do you bring the festive spirit of Christmas to your wedding day without all the cliché? The key is to design a wedding that is Christmas "inspired", not Christmas themed. This wedding photographed by Volvoreta Bodas, in Madrid Spain has all the charm of a Christmas wedding. Truly, it's merry and bright and the perfect example of how to have a festive holiday wedding without being so obvious. There are … areas to pay attention to when you plan your classy Christmas wedding and it starts with the venue.

The VenueTraditional Christmas WeddingWhen considering where to have the ceremony it is appropriate to look at hosting the event at a church or cathedral. It’s elegant, it’s traditional, and it nicely caters to the religious themes of this holiday. This couple was married in the Church San Fermin De Los Navarros. Look at how amazing the vaulted ceilings are. Between the beauty and striking presence of the cathedral walls, art, stain glass windows, and lighting, you really don't need to do much designing. There are a few florals on the front stage. Along the aisle are poinsettias and a long red runner.

The Reception Table SettingChristmas Wedding Tables

The guest tables at the reception are some of the most fun design elements of any wedding. It brings together class, etiquette, and creative florals. For this Christmas wedding, the couple wanted to do a Christmas theme that was modern; getting away from the rustic elements so frequently seen with this type of theme. Plus, the structural red berry vine brought in serious color and shape to the reception tables. Along the table they included the traditional poinsettia flowers and an elegant place setting.

The Bridal AccessoriesChristmas Wedding Bride Style The bride's style is charming and minimalistic. We LOVE these little velvet shoes with a satin red bow. Its the little pop of color all brides crave and is a sweet nod to all the Christmas gifts we all share this time of year. Next, the hair piece she is wearing is a mixed metal foliage and floral design. Ultimately, adding a little silver and gold to your wedding look is a classy way to handle Christmas without putting a bunch of mistletoe in your hair!
