Wedding Wish-List Wednesday: Christmas Wedding

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am a HUGE fan of Christmas!  I love it, absolutely love it.  The trees (I only get a REAL tree, thank you very much), the ornaments, the wreaths, the mistletoe, the carols...sleigh rides, hot chocolate, holiday lights, Santa Claus, greeting cards, nativities...  Oh my goodness, the list could go on.

And yet, I still have not managed to photograph a Christmas themed wedding.

This is just shameful.  I don't know how this has slipped through the cracks.

So today, I raided my Pinterest board and I thought I'd share a few (a VERY few) of my favorite ideas for Christmas weddings, and maybe one of these days some lucky bride will find me and we'll say, 'Oo, Christmas!  Isn't Christmas the best?' and we'll have way too much fun.

Try a cozy, warm, inviting setting.

Maybe with a gazebo:

With a beautiful holiday-inspired bouquet:

And as I said, I do love ornaments!

So why not combine the ideas and use a bouquet MADE out of ornaments?!

There's some beautiful ways you can do your settings as well:

Or try this one:

And I am absolutely LOVING these holiday jars!

And then there's this truly amazing wedding cake:
(I mean, I don't think you could get any more perfect than that...)

And have some chocolate-covered strawberries as well!  Christmas is definitely the time for sweets.

And sip champagne from these awesome flutes!

I do love winter wedding themes:

And I can't quite decide WHICH of these I like best!

Or, ya can just go all-out luxury and elegance to create a winter wonderland dripping in light and frost and magic:

Wedding Wish-List Wednesday: Eau Balm Beach Resort

"Intimate or lavish, quiet or festive -- perfect for an intimate wedding reception or a glistening ceremony..."

That is what today's Wish-List wedding venue boasts for their brides.

Florida's stunning and luxurious Eau Palm Beach Resort has it all, from three exquisite ballrooms to private ocean cabanas.

There's the magnificent Grand Ballroom, with its SIX Austrian crystal chandeliers -- absolutely perfect for a glittering reception to celebrate your special day on a grand scale.

Bring a little more intimacy into your celebration by choosing the smaller Plaza Ballroom.  Smaller, yes, but just as gorgeous.

Of course, this is Florida, and what Florida wedding would be complete without an ocean-front view?  To that end, Eau Palm Beach has their Ocean Ballroom -- with an oceanfront terrace looking out on the beautiful Atlantic.

If you really want to get into the beach feeling -- without that pesky sand getting everywhere -- Eau's beachfront cabanas provide a great space for an intimate and memorable wedding.  Or get married in the beautiful courtyard, with the beautiful tranquility pool.

Whatever your pleasure, Eau Palm Beach will help you customize your wedding to perfection!
