Incorporating the Holiday Season in Your Wedding Day

If you are having your wedding around the time of Christmas and Hanukkah, it can be nice to incorporate some elements of the holiday into your day. From color choices to decor and florals, we are breaking down the ways to include them without being over the top.

Color Palettes

Incorporating touches of the red, green and blue throughout the event can give a nod to the season without being over the top. Don’t just think of the typical tones of the colors, but branch out and use a deep hunter green, a merlot shade of red or a deep navy blue. Add a metallic tone like silver, gold or copper to the palette for an extra touch of sparkle. You can even mix the metals, gone are the days of everything having to be too matchy-matchy.

Escort Card Displays and Favors

Use your escort card display as a way to not only tell your guests where to sit but also as a favor for them to take home. Ornaments, dreidels or Christmas crackers add a feeling of the season and also create a beautiful addition to your décor.

Light it Up

Give your wedding a cozy, comfortable feel with the way you use lighting. Uplighting in amber creates a warm environment and can make a big space feel intimate. Dim the overhead lights for your ceremony or reception and add in candles in different sizes, shapes and types of vases.


Greenery, pinecones and berries add a touch of the Christmas spirit. Use greenery across the backs of chairs or cascading down your tables with pinecones tucked in to fill in the bare spots. Hydrangeas used in blue and white lend themselves to the colors of Hanukkah.

Weddings are a time to gather and celebrate so incorporating a few traditional elements from Christmas or Hanukkah can create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
