Dark Christmas Styled Shoot featured in Off Beat Bride

Photos by Chettara T. Photography

We've got some stunning dark Christmas wedding inspiration, but it's probably not what you're thinking. There are luminous fairy lights, a holiday-colored macaron tower(!), festive and fizzy drinks, pops of crimson flowers and drapery over lush and dark greenery and pomegranates, modern deep red sculptural cakes, and energy mist favors. This definitely isn't your usual Christmas wedding decor! 

It just proves that even if you choose a traditional time of year for your wedding (Christmas, New Year's Eve, summer, whenever!), you aren't beholden to sticking to what's always been done. You can have a dark and moody Christmas that's just as elegant and chic as any other. 

Let's sink deep into this divine red, black, and green melange of moody goodness…
