I’m sorry but… I don’t think it makes any sense in the summer!

@amandaandtim2014:  Christmas in July? Personally I wouldn’t do it, but if you did it right it could be fun and pretty!

I wouldnt do it. Theme issues was a minor reason of the plethora of reasons we decided to move our celebration wedding. However once we cleared it with everyone we found that it made our wedding planning really easy by switching back to october which is what we really wanted. Funny how you can spend 6 months planning for a wedding and get almost no where, yet you pick a month with a theme that you want and the planning is done in 2 weeks.

If it’s the theme you want, I would change months even though it’s not the church you wanted. To me winter in July is just as weird as a tropical theme in January where there are tons of snow. I think it wouldn’t do justice to the theme you chose.

I’m not a fan of this idea.  If I was a guest I would be a little confused. Maybe you can still use some cool wintery colors, but I wouldn’t play up the snowflake thing.

This is something you could pull off if you had megabucks.

There’s a difference between being able to hire real snow machines and making it look like a true winter wonderland vs. having a winter color scheme and a few snowflake decorations.

I think it’s risky if you don’t have the budget because you may confuse people and you probably won’t get the effect you’re going for.

What if you picked a few wintery colors (but don’t make it obvious), and then had some sort of  “beat the heat” station with a sno-cone machine and stuff like that?

Your idea made me think of Blizzard Beach lol.. but obviously Disney has the budget to pull something like this off:

I don’t think even a big budget would salvage this idea. Don’t do it, work within the season you’re getting married in.

What if instead of a Winter Wonderland, your theme was Crystal Palace?  Then you get the same color scheme and lots of bling, just minus the snowflakes?
