I got engaged in May of this year with plans for a Summer 2010 wedding. Well as of a few weeks ago, my Fiance and I have decided to go for it and get married the day after Christmas… of this year! This means pulling alot together in a short time. A few nights ago we decided to go with a “Sweet”heart theme for the reception and we’ll only be serving desserts and have an open bar (and maybe some appetizers). This way, we don’t have to cut our guest list, and we can still afford to pull it off. Anybody have suggestions for decorations? Our colors are White and shades of orange.

Hmm well white is a good color because you could incorporate snowflakes in your theme if you wanted. Do you want to make it wintery or Christmasy at all? Now is probably the perfect time too because I was at Party City yesterday and their moving all their summer stuff to clearance. It was funny because they had tons of orange plates and cups and decorations in the clearance section and I thought “man if I knew someone whose colors are orange…” Also lots of stores are bringing in their winter/Christmas decor so you could definitely snag some stuff now.
I just googled images of “orange white wedding” and “white winter wedding” and there’s so many cute things.
What exactly is a “sweet”heart theme? I don’t think I’m getting it.

I think Christmas time is a great time to get married. I like the pine cones above. I also think that using manzanita branches would be beautiful during that time.
This picture reminds me of a winter white wedding.

Oh Christmas season is a PERFECT time to have one of your colors be white! Snow, snowflakes, snow drifts…twinkling lights…I could just go on and on. And orange would be a pop of color that the guests wouldn’t be expecting to see that time of year.
But I agree with fall seasonal things on shelves now, they’ll be on clearance just in time for you to snatch them up for your wedding!

These centerpieces could be pretty inexpensive… grab some branches, give ’em a light sanding, spray paint wait, hang pretty pops of orange throughout!

ooooohhhhh…. I love these
Oranges are a pretty popular christmas traditions especially mixed with cloves. Here are some cute peeled oranges that would be cute stacked or piled into vases as centerplaces or just little piles layed around….
Another cute idea I’ve seen at Christmas time weddings is to have guests write you wedding wishes on plain ball ornaments instead of on pieces of paper or in a guest book. I’ve also seen similar ornaments used as place cards/favors.
