So I am in the midst of planning my dream wedding! Since I am a complete and total Christmas lover, I am telling my family and fiance that I would like to wait to have the wedding in December of 2008 (preferably the first Saturday of December) so that it can be Christmas/Winter themed. I am going to be viewing venues in the upcoming weeks because I was told that I need to try to nail one down ahead of time because companies tend to take over these venues with corporate Christmas parties during December. I was thinking about color schemes and options and narrowed it down to two themes and of course, I'm turning it over to my fellow Christmas fanatics to help me decide!
A fun Christmas party:
Colors: Red, green and gold
Decorate with Christmas trees. Have Christmas cookies as party favors with a few do-it-yourself decorations at each table.
A formal Winter Wonderland
Colors: White and silver
Decorate with faux snow, bare trees that have been spray painted silver, snowflakes, etc.
Favors will likely be hand-painted silver and white sugar cubes.
(of course we'll be toasting with hot chocolate and egg nog instead of champagne!)
Has anyone else done a winter/Christmas wedding? Any ideas?
