How to add Christmas customs into your wedding

Christmas is full of traditions that bring a jolly vibe to any occasion. There’s no reason why you can’t bring that festive cheer to your wedding by incorporating some of these customs into your special day. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

Christmas tree

The custom of decorating evergreen trees at Christmas time originated in Germany and Eastern European countries, such as Estonia and Latvia, in the 16th century. Nowadays, Christmas trees are popular around the world – with their pretty baubles and decorative lights, they are a beautiful and charming way to celebrate the Christmas season. A Christmas tree at a December wedding can be decked in colours to match your wedding’s colour scheme, and it can make a lovely focal point to the decor of the day.


Traditionally, mistletoe has been associated with fertility since the middle ages, and the custom of kissing under the mistletoe at Christmas time has been popular since the 18th century. This romantic plant is the perfect addition to a winter wedding. Hang mistletoe posies around the venue to give your guests the chance to steal a kiss from their own true love.

Mince pies

For a delicious dessert option, offer your guests some mince pies. The spices contained within the pies represent the gifts given to baby Jesus by the three wise men.
