Planning and designing a wedding is probably one of the most difficult tasks you will ever have to run. Aside from the fact that there are a thousand-and-one minute details to take care of, there is also a lot of pressure on your shoulders for everything to turn out perfect as well.

If you plan on having a winter wedding, you might want to include some really nice Christmas decorations in it as well. Following, we have put together some of the best ideas we’ve come across so far so make sure to read on and find your inspiration!

  • Christmas globes. You don’t have to hang Christmas globes all over your wedding venue if you want to include them in your Big Day. You can simply use them in your centerpieces or even as place card holders. Even more than that, they can fit perfectly into your wedding theme colors as well and they can look really elegant too.
  • Mini-Christmas trees. Bring some small Christmas trees in pots and place them in the center of your reception tables. Decorate them in a stylish way by adding silk bows, flowers and/or small, delicate flowers to them. If you want to keep everything “chic”, make sure you don’t overdo it –in this case, less actually is more!
  • Have a candy bar. A candy bar is a great idea both for those of you who want to replace the traditional tiered cake and for those of you who want some “extra sweetness”to their wedding as well. Choose candy and cookies that come in your wedding colors and arrange them on a separate table. If you manage to pull off an elegant arrangement, your candy bar will double as décor for the reception venue too!

Don’t worry if you feel lost in front of all the small details weddings are comprised of –that’s perfectly normal. If you ever feel overwhelmed (or if you simply want to avoid all the hassle), don’t hesitate to give Chey Chic Weddings a call –we can design your wedding décor in three easy steps so that you can focus on finding the best catering and photographers!

We know weddings tend to be quite tricky when it comes to the huge amount of details you have to deal with. While your gown, his tux, the venue, the cake and the other “big”parts of your wedding are most definitely important, you should definitely not forget about the small things that make everything “flow”as well.

Escort cards are precisely that kind of thing. Aside from the fact that they are an amazing way to show your creativity (and to add something special to your wedding theme), they are also a great “organizational”tool as well. By using escort cards, you will make it much easier for your guests to find their seats –so there will be no more confusion for them as they arrive at your reception.

We have picked up some great escort card ideas, so make sure to read on and inspire yourself:

  • VIP access badges. This is a great idea if you plan on having a really luxurious wedding (and especially if you want it to be inspired by the Hollywood glamour). Escort cards designed as simple, black VIP access badges will add a bit of fun and uniqueness to your wedding.
  • A wreath escort card display with leaf-shaped escort cards. If your wedding takes place around Christmas, this will be a great way to compliment your wedding theme. Instead of leaves, you can also go for other things that are typically used for creating wreaths as well (Christmas tree globes for example).
  • Blossom tree with flowers as escort cards. This works especially well for spring weddings, but it can be “adapted”to almost any kind of wedding theme too. Choose pastel colors for the escort cards and place them in a “tree”as its “flowers”.

Christmas is just around the corner and that means much more than Christmas carols, trees and presents. For many of the couples out there, Christmas is the moment they have chosen to “tie the know”–and oh, what a wonderful choice this is!

If you have decided on a Christmas wedding instead of anything else, you definitely must know that you made a very elegant and beautiful choice. And because every single detail at a wedding can make a huge difference, we have gathered some amazing Christmas wedding ideas for your place cards. Read on and find out more.

  • Snowmen. If you want to add a bit of cuteness to every table, get snowmen-shaped place card holders. You can either write your guests names on the snowmen themselves or you can have these cute decorations “carry”small “signs”with your guests’names.
  • Christmas tree globes. These are really fun and they can double as wedding favors as well. You can even choose to create them yourself and, same as with the snowmen, you can choose to either write the names right on the globes or on a small note attached to them.
  • Pinecones. Use natural pinecones especially if you are planning on a chic-rustic Christmas wedding. Have them spray-painted with silver or white for a more special, elegant effect.
  • Wooden Christmas figurines. Little wooden angels and reindeers will look absolutely adorable on your wedding table and they can be a unique idea for place card holders.

If you are still searching for the perfect place card holders for your own wedding, don’t forget to check out with The Crafty Smiths. Contact us and together we will create something original, beautiful and perfectly suitable for your wedding theme as well!
