Welcome your guests to your wedding ceremony with Christmas carollers, dressed in traditional Victorian costumes singing your favourite carols. Perfect for any festive event, Christmas carollers bring joy and Christmas spirit to everyone.
Or why not add a classic touch to your event, as a Scottish Piper pipes your guests into your ceremony venue.
Create a perfect, romantic start to the day with a traditional harpist playing music throughout your wedding ceremony. You could choose from your favourite classical, traditional and pop music songs or why not carry on your theme and ask the harpist to perform Christmas songs.
Nothing would make your winter/Christmas wedding even more special than snow falling as you leave your wedding venue after you’ve made your wedding vows. Unfortunately the chances of snow in this country is slim, so to ensure you have snow on your perfect day why not buy or hire a snow machine.
Traditionally guests throw confetti at the newly married couple but to create that extra special Christmas/wintery touch why not give each guest a small packet of snow confetti to use instead of traditional multi coloured confetti.
This is typically when the happy couple head off with the wedding party to get their wedding photo’s taken. It’s also when the bride and groom stress out worrying about leaving their guests for too long.
Why not keep your guests entertained with a caricaturist. A wedding caricaturist is a great ice breaker and gives people something to laugh and talk about and as the caricaturist mingles with your guests he/she will draw them as they go, creating memorable souvenirs for both you and your guests to take home.
A hot chocolate bar the perfect way to keep guests warm, make sure you have a variety of flavours ready for your guests to enjoy, don’t forget to add mini bottles of Bailey’s, it’s perfect for keeping the chill out.
It’s never easy to keep children entertained for any length of time and when they have to stay clean and tidy and can’t jump and roll around as they normally would. Keep them occupied by giving each child a festive colouring card and pencils to colour their card and write a letter for Santa. Arrange for a Father Christmas to magically call in to collect all the letters they’ve written.
If there’s a TV or video room available at your venue why not show screenings of Christmas movies for the children – the Polar Express or Disney’s Frozen.
Hire a balloon modeller to add an extra something to your party or event. A balloon modeller will bring entertainment and fun to the day and the children will have mementos to take home with them! Not only will this keep the children busy it gives the parents a chance to relax and enjoy your wedding day to it’s fullest.
Make your big day even more memorable for your guests by hiring singing waiters. Singing Waiters are great entertainment for your guests and they are becoming increasingly popular at weddings. In true Christmas wedding mode why not ask your waiters to dress in festive attire.
Hire a pianist to play your favourite festive music at your wedding breakfast or why not go all out with a band of musical Santa’s playing favourite Christmas Songs.
The evening reception is when it’s time for everyone to really let their hair down and there’s nothing as exiting, interactive or enjoyable as a live band. A great live band will turn your wedding into the best wedding your guests have ever been to!
Everyone loves chocolates so why not leave festive tins of chocolates/sweets, we thought Roses, Quality Street or Ferrero Rocher trees around your venue for children/guests to dip into as they pass by.
A fireworks display is a great way to make a special occasion truly memorable and a hand held sparkler guard of honour as you leave would make the perfect ending to your perfect day.
