This post is for my friend Kristin, who will be marrying her fiance Andrew in December 2012. The theme is “White Christmas.” Hopefully it inspires other brides also! And of course, I included some music inspiration… because that’s what I do.

Instrumental Christmas Songs For The Ceremony

Waltz Of The Flowers – Tchaikovsky (The Nutcraker)

Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy – Tchaikovsky (The Nutcraker)

(Note: Those two would be sweet and less cliche done by a simple acoustic guitar)

Any Christmas song can be played instrumentally and be lovely – personal favorites:
