Christmas is such a magical time of year, filled with love and laughter, snuggling in front of open fires, quality time with friends and family and spoiling those you love. It’s also officially the most popular time of year for proposals! So why not get married at Christmas? Just imagine….a sleigh for a wedding car, twinkling fairy lights, hot mugs of mulled wine and of course snow….If you’re lucky!
If you decide to have a Christmas wedding you need a great playlist. A Christmas wedding playlist needs to have a good mix of nostalgic classics, modern interpretations and a big injection of 80’s cheese! Here are some of our favourites –
#1 All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey
Perfect song for a Christmas wedding.
#2 Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
For the woman who wants everything!

Getting stuck in traffic turned out to be very lucrative…
