@alexandrapujols328:  Have you booked a venue yet? If not, ask questions re what decorating they do for the holidays.Many venues put up trees or other decorations that you can use as art of your overall scheme. Be sure to ask what colors they use.

If you have a venue, add those questions to your list of questions to ask the next time you meet with the vendor.

If you can decide colors etc quickly, you can get some great prices as soon as the stores mark down Christmas decor, whether that is before or after Christmas.

Little tiny favor stockings can be used for cutlery

Stocking favor serves as both place setting & flatware corral.  Could personalize with name across top of stocking or attach initials as shown.  This example pinned from Better Homes and Gardens is a pair of metal letters with a piece of sheer ribbon.


Do you want traditional red and green?  You can get cylinder vases at Dollar Tree for $1, fill with crumbled saran wrap, water and cranberries for a very inexensive centerpiece.

Christmas Wedding. cranberries, saran wrap, and distilled water to look like ice. make sure to use distilled water or bubbles will form inside the vase   I love candles, I also like the vertical nature of the display, rather than a flat display that grows outwards.  A rare exception to my theory that  red is an accent, not a color that can stand on it's own

Or you can go with white, silver and blue for an icy winter feel. For the latter, you can get free branches, spray paint them white, place in buckets with rocks and create a woodland look, either as aisle decor or an entry to the reception.

Winter wedding aisle...the key is uplighting on the branches.

One year when I decorated a whole community center, I placed an ad on Craigslist looking  for free artificial Christmas trees. People give these away all the time when they are moving, or when they upgrade their tree. You can use things in buckooded look.ets filled with rocks to create little forests near the entry, in the corners of the room etc. You can decorate them, or leave them plain, or spray them with artificial snow.


You could put mini lights under the  sweetheart or head table linens.

There is nothing that I do not like about this picture- the decorations are wonderful, people are happy... I love black and white photos to begin with but the contrasts in this picture are spectacular!

You could buy ornaments as favors. I wouldn’t write your names and date on them, People are more likely to sue them if you leave them plain. A gold , white or silver ornament can be incorporated into everyone’s decor.

Wedding Favor for a Christmas wedding - probably wouldn't just want our names on it because who wants to put that on their tree? but maybe a Bible verse or something...

You could also get clear ornaments, make photocopies of your wedding invitaion, shred the copies and put them inside a clear ornament.
