Holiday I Dos

By  |  0 Comments

What do July 4, Halloween and Christmas have in common? Sure, they’re holidays, but they’re also great themes for seasonal weddings. Instead of going full force with iconic color schemes and décor, make subtle choices and throw in some festive details. “It’s better to design your wedding in a classy, rather than kitschy, way,” suggests home stylist Jenna Kinghorn, owner of Styled by Jenna. “For Halloween, go for a Gothic Victorian twist with matte black and a hint of brushed gold.” Or embrace the rustic nature of the season with burlap tablecloths, wood accents and deep yellow, orange and burgundy flowers. Don’t forget the candy bar! Independence Day’s red, white and blue scheme is pretty set; however, you can still mix it up with fun accessories like red satin shoes. “Have a clambake and use Turkish towel throws or beach blankets for tablecloths,” Kinghorn suggests. An American flag ring bearer pillow and a firework sendoff are musts! “For Christmas, picture a tree farm as your inspiration,” she says. “I like using seasonal foliage, white birch chargers and mercury glass ornaments as giveaways.” Add twinkling lights and lots of candles to complete your winter wonderland. It might be so perfect that Santa decides to make an appearance.
