Victorian Christmas Wedding Theme

After I shared about winter branches wedding centerpieces yesterday ago, now I would like to share some Christmas wedding decoration and themes that I think it has relation with the winter branches and winter wonderland wedding, so just check it out.

When Queen Victorian was crowned in 1837, she ushered in an era of elegant Christmas traditions. Couples can mimic Christmas cards that wealthy families used to send by mailing invitations that feature Victorian images of the Christmas tree using calligraphy embossed with gold or silver.

For the ceremony itself, it is important to remember that gold, silver, mulberry red and evergreen were prominent Victorian era colors. Ideally, the bridal gown should have a corset bodice with velvet accents in such shades as crimson and emerald green.

The groom's tuxedo should have tails. At either the church or the reception hall, a Christmas tree should be prominent. Popular Victorian decorations were strings of popcorn and miniature wrought-iron birdcages with fake birds inside. Tables should be covered with lace tablecloths.

A Victorian-themed menu can include raw oysters, Roman punch made from rum and lemons, and roast turkey. Gifts for the guests can include miniature books of "The Christmas Carol", booklets of popular Christmas carols and Christmas crackers.
