    I can see the “Dr.Suesish” after you mention that, however, I like it better then the rustic theme. I also think it suits you better and its fun. Go for it.

    I think rustic is too overdone. Be unique and be you!

    If you like that christmas sparkle theme go for it!
    My advice personally, is that those colors and that many colors could make the wedding seem less classy and more like a birthday party type get together. But please if you like it and disagree dont take this to heart.
    I just found with my wedding it was easy to do what I like and while keeping it simple as well. I had a navy blue wedding. I was originally going to do all different shades of blue, but I realized it would end up potentially looking like a baby shower with many blues lol, when you get into many colors how will you incorporate all of them? What color would bridesmaids dresses be? What color would table cloth/runners be? You bouquet? Can you find the same shades of purple, pink, green, and teal in all aspects of the wedding so it’s not hodgepodge? If you can make it work with those colors, fabulous it could look great!

    What if you narrowed your christmas theme down to just sparkly green and red  or sparkly blue and white like a wintery theme. Both seem classy and you could do bright colors of each and sparkley.

    I think if country/rustic doesn’t represent you, don’t do it unless there is something about that that you connect with. Your theme should represent who you are, not just be trendy! I agree that it is overdone but for us it is who we are and what our house is decorated as – we love nature and hiking and reusing/recylcing, husband does woodwork, we travel to the mountains often, love cabins, that sort of stuff.

    So I think that you should follow your heart and find ways to work with the sparkly xmas theme that you are thinking up. For example, if you do a sparkly wedding xmas theme you can select colors that are more “wedding” for your palate and make it be both xmas and wedding (to address your bridesmaids concerns). Some people have done silver, gold, and green or something like that. Follow your inspiration and have fun with it!

    One more thing – You can always post asking Bees to help with xmas sparkle inspiration that is not too out-of-the-wedding zone. There are some insanely creative Bees on here that are geniuses at color, DIY, decor, etc Smile

    It’s your wedding so do whatever YOU want.  But if you’re asking my opinion…I really dislike the sparkly Christmas theme. It looks childish and kitschy.  Is your fiance on board with it?  If I showed that picture to my fiance, he’d never agree to it.  Whatever you do, just make sure your fiance agrees because it’s his wedding too.

    If the rustic theme is not “you” then I wouldn’t go with that. If your sparkly Christmas theme suits you two then go for it! That said, the inspiration pictures do seem a bit “crazy” for me, I would never judge a persons decor, becuase if thats what they want & they like it, who am I to say anything?I personally would tone done the colours a bit and not have too much Christmas stuff, I would want my wedding to feel like a wedding still and not a Christmas party.

    What if you do a rustic Christmas? You can have some deep reds and pine greens, with that little bit of earthiness. And, you’ve got your Christmas theme too!

    I think that could be really fun! I wouldn’t have thought of it myself, but its different and if it suits your personality then thats even better. Go for it!
