    I think it will look good! And done the way you are, there are no other things that look like Christmas so I think it will be fine. I like the books in the centerpieces!

    I think it looks lovely – especially with those lovely spring/summery flowers. I really like it.

    I think you’ll be fine.  One suggestion you may want to try is a mismatch of the books (red and green together).  Or, possibly clear vases instead of the colors.  Just a thought…

    Happy Planning!

    Just want to add…

    Most important question: Do *you* love it? 

    If so, it doesn’t matter whether all the women on here say they don’t, or that it’s too christmassy, because it’s not their wedding. Do what makes you happy!

    I think the green definitely goes with your theme, but I don’t like the red vase- that does look a little Christmasy to me.  If you want to incorporate red, maybe just use it as an accent color in the flowers and keep the red books.

    You should check out Mrs. Pony (a bee blogger) – she had a red and green wedding and had the same worries about it being too Christmas-y. She’s just now starting her recaps but you can check out her pre-wedding progress in the meantime. Start here:

    =) because im doing a red and green wedding too! but for springtime. let’s try and share ideas and pictures! 

    my idea though is to make it mostly red and neutrals, and adding accents of green. i’m having trouble making it work though, because its hard to find the right, springy shade of green to go with my reds … esp with paper crafts, but i’m crossing my fingers!!

     

    overall, i love your mockup photos. add pops of red with the green, black and white would be so great! i don’t like the red vase either. maybe use it with ribbons and more in the books or as text on paper instead. have some small red flowers mixed in with the daisies. just suggestions to think about! have fun and good luck with the results!
