The Christmas holiday drinks often served are mulled wines, regular white and red wine, eggnog, champagne fruit punch, hot chocolate, and hot spiced cider. Also, have coffee ready to serve to the guests who want it plain.
Now that you have some ideas for what food to serve, you need some ideas on how to serve it to make it a lasting memory for you and your guests. A way of making the dishes you are serving look more abundant and inviting on the table is to display them at different levels with tiered plates or by putting boxes under the cloths and setting the dish on that.

It is most important that the table always look full and never have empty plates just sitting there. Your tablecloths should be in your theme colors, or white with a runner or overlay of gold or silver gives you a more formal look if that is what you are aiming for.
White twinkle lights draped at the edge of the table certainly add a festive and soft light to the decorations. Are you getting hungry just thinking of all the scrumptious desserts you can offer at your Christmas wedding? All this while still keeping within your food budget. Have a beautiful Christmas wedding and life to follow.
