If it were me, I’d use white everywhere or even silver or gold. That will break up the Christmassy feel of it, I think. You could even add lots of jewel toned colors if you’re brave enough to try…deep blues,purples…but it depends on what you like and what is more ‘you’.

this looks magical (december wedding) to me.

What IS your ideal color scheme?

Gold’s would be really pretty and it would still go with the red/green christmas decor…

I think it would probably be better to keep your decorating more simple, since there will already be so many beautiful decorations up!  What if you went with white, ivory, silver or gold to use as the main accent color?  I think any of those would compliment the red and green very well without clashing with it as many other colors might.  I would personally stick to a centerpiece and then maybe a few accents for your gift/card and cake tables.  It will be beautiful to have a Christmas wedding!

Talk to the venue and see what your options are. Some places may surprise you and be willing to temporarily take down the decor if you ask nicely. Be prepared for them to say no. Your guests will realize that it is out of your hands if you are not able to get rid of the Christmas decor as long as you don’t include any Christmasy elements anywhere else.

I agree that neutrals or metallics will be the way to go.

 

Bronze, champagne etc will go well with the wood tones in pinecones

Black and white could be pretty too. I think any neutrals would look nice.
