My FI knew that I love Christmas but was unable to propose over the holidays and we live in Minnesota and it is not very reasonable to have a wedding in December with a lot of out of town travelers. So my FI proposed in March by setting up the Christmas tree. So long story short we are having a Christmas wedding in April. Looking for ideas for a holiday wedding.

@NavyBride16: I love that!!
We are having a December wedding. That means a lot of pine cones, pine branches, candles, and white roses… And gold glitter 🙂

Heh. I LOVE Christmas and we had a very Christmas wedding. Red, gold and green, christmas trees and ornaments, hot cocoa…
And I wish I could show you but I can’t since my picture uploader isnt working. We had 4 little light up Christmas trees behind us at the alter, a swag of evergreen over the stage, ornaments in the centerpieces, a hot cocoa bar with cinnamon sticks and peppermints, whipped cream and then cider too. When I can make the picture thingy work, I will post some!

@chasegirl – We are thinking of doing evergreen saplings as our favor. We also would like to do a Evergreen tree for our unity item at the reception. We would like to have a small sapling at the alter and have our moms bring up pretty bags of dirt and we will plant it during the ceremony. What do you think?

@NavyBride16: I love it!!! It totally needs a single red ornament on it… like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree.

My daughter’s wedding is December 20th. Invitations were ivory cards with gold borders from JoAnn’s, in forest green pockets from Cards & Pockets on-line. They were closed with an embossed gold foil snowflake sticker I found through Wall Street Greetings for .10 each. I printed them myself and assembed everything for a September mailing, and received tons of compliments on the color scheme, even though it was weird to open a Christmasy invitation shortly after Labor Day.
Her gown is ivory satin, the maids are in Dessy gowns of hunter green chiffon with satin trim, the flowergirls are in David’s Bridal ivory gowns with champagne ribbon trim and gold sparkly accents, and I’m wearing champagne satin with some gold sequins. The guys are in black tuxes with ivory accessories. Flowers are champagne and white roses, wrapped in champagne ribbon. Church carpet is cranberry red and the entire church will be decorated for Christmas, so it was easier to go with this color scheme. The prelude music will include Christmas hymns, and the recessional will be a rousing version of “Joy To The World.” Hoping it will be lovely – I will post photos when we get them.
Reception decor is winter tablescapes: an 18″ round mirror, edges covered in evergreen branches, topped with fake snow (Epsom salts works great!) pine cones covered in Diamond Dust (ground glass – looks like frost) and lots of votives in mercury glass. In the center of each table will either be a lantern with a larger candle, or a tall glass vase with tall “icy” branches, from which will hang random crystal snowflakes. I spent all afternoon today Diamond-Dusting the pine cones, and am thrilled that I have saved so much money on them. Be sure to check the December “month twins” boards – we got some great ideas on there!

I now wish that I was having a December wedding. If I was, I would have had:
– A poinsettia bouquet or maybe red roses with gypsophilia.
– Christmas lights in the Church.
– A christmas tree in the reception venue.
– Crackers at the reception.
– Small Christmas wreaths with candle in the middle for table centrepieces.
– Gold jeweller.
Also, December would have been a better time (only just realised that).
