Christmas Wedding Shower Ideas

Vintage Christmas Wedding Shower InvitationsSome Christmas Wedding Shower ideas for a wintertime wedding. Even if the wedding is after the New Year, a Christmas themed shower will still be a nice touch.  There are many fun ideas to create a wintertime or Christmastime wedding shower. We like the idea of a wedding shower that has all the trimmings of a Christmas party. The house is decorated for the Holidays so a festive mood is already in the air! Serve Traditional Christmas Cookies and hot coco, or perhaps Candy Cane Cocktails are more in order for an evening time event. Be sure to have a cheerful holiday musical mix playing to raise everyone’s spirits.

For a creative shower might include a crafting session where all the guests make ornaments for the newlyweds first tree. It is a nice idea to include the wedding date and the Brides and Grooms names. This way the ornaments will also be a reminder of their anniversary. Be sure to prepare a table top tree that is unadorned, ready for the freshly made ornaments to be displayed.
Here is a wonderfully creative list published by theornamentgirl.com – 25 Christmas Ornaments to Make:  4handmadeorn

We love the idea of incorporating a Shabby Chic Theme to the Vintage Wedding Shower. The Vintage Christmas Wedding Shower invitations created by Vintage Wedding Invitation use the shabby chic concept to create a rustic fantasy of a Bridal Shower. A soft color scheme adds to the romantic mood of the approaching ceremony, and adds a misty, frosted magic to everything. Softening the traditional Christmas red to pink and green to teal will set the mood for a cottage-style, homespun feel to the event, matching the hand made ornaments project. Customize party keepsakes for your guests in advance by making Vintage Christmas Bridal Shower Ornaments with our personalized ceramic ornaments. Everyone will remember this event for years to come each time they decorate their Christmas tree. After all, It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

We here are all a flutter over the upcoming movie “The Great Gatsby“.

The Great Gatsby will surely be inspiring brides as soon as the movies spins off it’s reels on May 10, 2013.

How To Create An Art Deco Wedding

garycooperclarabowWe love the idea of an Art Deco Wedding. Adding even more elegance and romance to a day that is already heady with emotion, the Art Deco approach to your wedding day is one that will make your wedding a meaningful and memorable event for you and your guests. Weddings are the high point in any calendar of events, but the added anticipation of unexpected fun will have your guests marking the date and happily planning their attire for your glamorous day.cheers_shvis

Firstly establish the theme. It’s all about the attitude and influences of the 1920s and 1930s. Get yourself informed and in the right frame of mind by watching movies placed in the era like De-Lovely, The Great Gatsby, Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, and films made back in the day like the wonderful Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers confections, Swing Time And Top Hat.

By selecting the period-perfect Art Deco Bridal Shower Invitations, Engagement Party Invitations and Wedding Invitations, you will literally send the right message to your guests, getting them in the correct vintage frame of mind. Even the pre-wedding events like bridal showers can be held with the art deco theme.

Art Deco Wedding Shower InvitationThe total effect and a consistent execution of Art Deco Theme can be achieved by first selecting the Art Deco Wedding Shower or Engagement Party Invitations.  These invites match the Art Deco Wedding Invitation “Silhouettes Collection” perfectly. Or Choose one of our other vintage shower invites, perhaps one a bit more baudy.

Our Vintage 1930s Moonlight Wedding invitations will create anticipation of your wonderful upcoming ceremony. An elegant peak into to your evening-time event, this invitation will conjure up the lyrics from Cole Porter’s love songs. A perfect opportunity to feature the photo backdrop moon at your reception as done back in the 1920s. This invitation and it’s matching components are suggested to print on metallic paper stock, in Ice, so that the man in the moon and the stars will sparkle and glow.

Planning your art deco wedding needs to include the perfect location as well. The overall effect of the event should be awash in 1920s era ambiance. The search for the right location can be loads of fun. Look into vintage hotels, bed and breakfasts, historic homes, mansions, and museums. Check out historic landmarks, parks, theaters and dance halls built in the 1920s. Even nightclubs built around a speak-easy theme may be just the ticket for a one-of-a-kind affair. Check in with your local historical preservation groups and, if you are lucky, an area art deco society.

Art Deco Wedding

The St. Petersburg Coliseum built in the 1920s is still standing and ready for your art deco wedding.

Setting the stage. Once the location for the wedding and reception is set begin to conceptualize the vintage elements that will add special details to the event. We suggest a special display for the guest book table that features a collection of framed vintage photos of the bride and grooms parents, grandparents and great-grand parents on their wedding day. Center pieces for an art deco effect would feature the color scheme from your invitations and bridesmaid dresses. white+flowers+with+ostrich+feathers+centerpieceThink beyond the traditional floral center piece and consider a swirl of pearls surrounding a vase of white ostrich feathers placed onto a mirrored disk. Surround the bottom of the vase with strings of pearls. Or more simply, a hurricane candle holder with a circle of a white feather boa. Classic elements to your reception can include accents of black and creme. Think black napkins, cream table cloths, a black grand piano with a cream piano scarf and a center piece of cream roses. Keep it simple and classic, and art deco moderne.
