Gingerbread Christmas Wedding Theme
Have a candy coated wedding by taking a cue from gingerbread houses. One idea is for the bride to eschew traditional white and wear a pale pink or lavender dress. Plastic candy can be glued to a tiara that holds the veil in place. For a bouquet, wrap colored ribbon around a cluster of lollipops, Pixy sticks and various colors of candy canes. Bridesmaids can stroll down the aisle in dresses in hues of cotton-candy pink, yellow and peach, carrying baskets filled with candy.
The aisle can be lined with large gingerbread men and fake lollipops made from circular foam wrapped in colored cellophane. Couples can skip the tiered wedding cake and have miniature gingerbread houses at the reception. Centerpieces can be bowls filled with candy, gingerbread houses or crystal vases with candy canes instead of roses. An idea for gifts for the guests can include bags filled with hard candy, tubs of icing and cookie cutters in various Christmas shapes.
