We’re not using Christmas colors, since the wedding is 1/26. Snowflakes are pretty but not too topical since I’m in Alabama. The colors we’re using are ivory, silver, light blue, light green…I’m using mercury glass on the tables. Anyone else?

nothing, letting the restaurant do what they normally do. Would rather spend the money on inviting more people!

Colors are ivory/white, light green and deep burgandy accents. Bigger fuller flowers for the centerpieces so that it’s not too busy, simple and elegant. Leaning towards taller centerpieces.
Antique-ish lanterns and stick candles in mason jars (assorted sizes)
White table coths with burlap runners
That’s all I’ve got so far…. still thinking about it a lot

@dkacerek: Our reception is in our church social hall, so it’s bare bones– it’s very nice, but very “corporate” looking, so we need to soften it up a bit.

I am using the mirror disk that they usually have available at wedding venues. Plus tea lights. Then I am making the wine bottles below. I will use less shiny branches probably something neutral and let the wood stand out. The front entrance/escort card table will have a large vase with pine cones and white birch branches in it. The venue recently added up lighting and will have bows and pinecones hanging from the sconces as its part of their winter decor. The trees outside will still have the white lights on them as well. I am putting white lights around the outside railing (that looks over the bay) and since it is winter there will be a heat lamp out there. It is simple but I hope the candle light makes it feel warm.
