We are certainly getting in the Christmas mood over here at French Wedding Style, and today we are continuing on with a festive Christmas wedding inspiration board, by the stylish Onorina Jomir from Onorina Jomir Beauty
As a destination wedding makeup professional based in Paris, Onorina is the perfect guide for us today to share her ideas for a chic, stylish yet festive wedding.
Onorina: “When I think of Christmas, I am immediately taken to a snowy, sparkling landscape, a cozy room full of bright light-flickering ornaments, red and green accents, and, my favorite, sugary treats and lots of surprises!
My Christmas wedding fantasy incorporates lots of textures and layers, shimmer and sparkle, and subtleties of red and green accents. Think about sequin-embroidered dresses for the bridesmaids, and a long, silver and white embellished bridal gown, reminiscent of that first fresh snowfall. Add a few intricate, sparkly hair accessories, such as a beautiful snowflake encrusted hair clip with feather-cut layers that turn any bridal updo into a dreamy wonderland – the possibilities are endless!
Brides, don’t forget to bring the groom into the winter picture by choosing a suit that matches your color palette – for me, a gray-silver combo with a lush satin tie is perfectly paired with our silver and white theme. Lastly, surprise your guests with a gorgeous pair of glittery white pumps that give them a slight glimpse of red with each step you take down the aisle.
As you walk into a dazzling hall flickering with reflections from white candles and warm light, smell the sweet, woodsy scent of silver-dusted pine cones and sugar-coated cranberries. Indulge in a couple of ‘snow’-frosted sugar cookies, and find yourself surrounded by red ribbon-wrapped chairs with fresh-cut Christmas tree branches and tall centerpieces adorned with white flowers and shimmery ornaments.
My finishing touch for this wedding is the perfect wedding cake, in both design and taste! Everyone loves surprises, so why not surprise the guests with a decadent red velvet cake, hiding underneath warm fluffy layers of whipped white frosting and shimmery pearls? Bring a feeling of joy to all attendees as they patiently wait for their piece of delicious, buttery cake – to me, this perfectly embodies the spirit of Christmas!”
