The bride can wear a classy white gown with a fur shawl having a sequence done in Christmas colors, say red and silver and for the groom, a classy white tuxedo with a hint of red (or any other Christmas color).
The dresses of the bridesmaids can be in red with green laces, and the groomsmen can wear a green or red bow along with their tuxes
