What are you imagining? And what is the feel of the wedding, is it casual or fancy? Maybe you could do miniature christmas trees that have gifts underneath, and make the gifts little favors!

i’m always a fan of the candle centerpieces:

you could find maybe silver floating candles and have burgundy flowers or even glass rocks in there?

You could put together some wreaths and lay them flat on the table with three candles in between.  Lots of craft stores sell Christmas themed stuff in July.  Here’s an example:

To save on cost, you can start with a small artificial wreath and just add a couple silver mini ball ornaments to them, and use burgundy taper candles instead of the tealights in holders.  I hope that helps!

What about doing something to encorporate ornaments in your centerpieces. I think they are super cute and festive..just an idea 🙂

I love the ornaments and it would be such an easy DIY project.  You might be able to find some good deals at yard sales this summer since Christmas sales are over.  How Christmasy do you want to go? 

You know those grape vine deco balls?  Those are pretty cheap at Ben Franklin right now (2.99) and they look awesome when spray painted.  I’m making similar looking ones but with cotton string and drying it into shape using water balloons and watered down mod podge or tacky glue.  I can help with tricks if you want to try that.  Search for cotton string ornament.  I’m using those for aisle decor.

You could also look at poinsettias or sleighs.

I posted about possibly doing miniture evergreen trees today, which would definitely work nicely for a Christmas wedding.  I also like the ornaments in a glass bowl – I did something similar on New Years Eve this year 🙂

I got these silver bowls at thrift stores and the flowers are interchangable.  Sorry I haven’t polished the bowls yet, but they would look really pretty with burgandy flowers.  You can’t really see them in the shot but there are crystal and pearl stems intermixed with the flowers.  The cost – about 5 dollars each total.

I also saw a really pretty one on a DIY site today which was just clear empty and labelless wine bottles with tall candles stuck in the top.  Sounds really simple, but it was truely elegant.

Pretty bowls or vases with ornaments in your colors:

Glasses with smaller ornaments, candles in your colors:

Decorative holly:

Or something super simple but pretty!

You could mix in evergreen springs, wreaths, or holly with almost any of these.

I’m having my wedding on Dec 11th, we are doing sort of a Christmas theme but using colors pink and dark brown.  We are having a white christmas tree with brown and pink ornamnets and a pink tree skirt to put gifts under.  So you could always do that.  We are also doing the centerpieces I posted.  I am using clear votive cups instead of red with pink candles.  And I’m changing out the ornaments to pink and putting a white pillar candle on top.  I got the other two centerpieces from pier one.  The other I’m doing is the cylinder vases with flowers instide with floating candles.

I love Miss Cheeky’s picture! Maybe you could also have some poinsetta plants incorporated? If you do really pretty burgandy and silver bulbs, some plants, and some evergreens, in a few different combinations, that would look beautiful!
