oh, my.  this would not be good.

was there anything in your contract regarding decor?  if you rented a blank space, you should be getting a blank space. 

you would think that a venue would discuss deocorating for xmas with any potential booking in december.

@smiles4jo:  if they initially said that they would take down whatever you didn’t like then make sure they honour that.  i would totally be firm with what i did not want as part of my wedding.

Yea I agree that you need to be firm and ask them to take down the decorations if it clashes with your vision. Our venue decorates like crazy for the holidays, but they (un)happily Wink will take anything and everything down if a couple requests. Good luck!

Hopefully they honor your request to take down what you don’t like and it doesn’t clash too much. Good luck!

Well, hold them to their promise that they’d take down whatever you didn’t like. Are they talking about lobby decor or something actually in your room?

It was nice of them to let you know. Go see it before you freak out.  If there’s something you hate ask them to take it down since they said they would.

I also am concerned about my decor since I’m getting married the week after Christmas next year, and I’m not fond of red or green! Since it’s a historical mansion open to the public, I can’t change any of the holiday decorations. But I said the heck with it, I’m still using purple/gold/ivory – I’ll manage.

Stop by and check it out, it’ probably a lot nicer than you are imagining.

I think its OK to have Xmas stuff ina  few colors. I often go to a greenhouse/garden center and they have trees that are red/silver/green next to pink/white next to teal/purple. It’ all Christmas, so it will look good. And the fact that your items are a different color scheme means they will pop against the other Xmas stuff.

our recepition venue was brown brown brown brown brown brown-

I don’t think it matters toooo much but I really wish we’d thought about it.

@smiles4jo:  WHAT?!

That’s soo rude! They should have told you from the get go that they were going to be decorating it that way for Christmas, you may just kindly ask them that as far as the agreement goes, its your wedding, YOU paid them to do what you wanted and that’s just not going to work with what you’ve ALREADY put soo much time and work into.

Say this as nicely of course, because the LAST thing you want to do is get stressed about doing everything ALL OVER AGAIN.

Best of luck!
