Christmas Wedding Centerpieces

Last time, we talked about ideas that would enhance your Christmas wedding and keep it within the spirit of the season. This time, we are going to talk about a Christmas wedding centerpiece that can also be used as a pew decoration.

Your Christmas wedding centerpieces may not be the least expensive wedding centerpiece idea, so if you like it you may want to make just a few and put them on the more special tables or scatter them around the room.

For your Christmas wedding centerpieces you will need:

  • 18" pine wreaths (preferably artificial)
  • ribbon (your choice of color, thickness, etc.)
  • artificial berries
  • 3x3 or 3x6 candles (Christmas scented - pine, cinnamon, gingerbread, etc.)
  • hot glue gun
The fun part:

Decorate your wreath! Yup, it's that simple. Glue clusters of berries around the wreath. Entwine some ribbon on top of the wreath and glue it down in key places. Make your wreath look how you want it to.

You can also buy ornaments to place within the wreath or other decorations of your choice to disperse within the branches or to simply place on top of the branches. When your wreaths are complete, place the candles in the center of them and you have your Christmas wedding centerpieces!

If you would like Christmas wedding centerpieces to double as pew decorations, you will need to attach something to the back of the wreath that will allow it to hang on the pew. Most craft stores carry pew bow holders that should work for this. The trick - you will need to detach the holders before you can lay the wreaths down on the tables at the reception. And, you will need to make sure your decorations are glued firmly in place so that when the wreath hangs upright they don't fall off.

Get your bridesmaids together and make a party out of it. Play Christmas music and drink hot cocoa. Eat candy canes, sing and dance. But, no matter what you do have fun making your wreaths and planning your Christmas wedding!

Best Wishes on your Christmas Wedding,
Kelly Kons
