I like the sparkly/christmasy theme! Definitely go with what represents you most. You don’t want to feel uncomfortable or look back at your pictures and think “that was so not us…why did we change ourselves on one of the most special days of our lives?”. I myself have been getting a lot of weird looks and comments from people about mine and my fiance’s ideas…but it’s our day. Your bridesmaids can have their own average, run of the mill, plain wedding when it’s their turn 🙂 I say, as long as you AND YOUR FIANCE agree, then that’s the one!

I love the Christmas idea! In fact, in my previous engagement, I had started out with the theme “Christmas in July”. I love Christmas Sparkle!! 🙂

@HelloRaeven: I do think the Christmas Sparkle you showed is a bit “un-weddingish” TBH and yes a bit Dr. S (although I love him!)
What if you did something like this, but added more COLOUR to it so it was more you? So instead of the white/silver sticks you did the pink/blue/purple you have, or did a plain silver tree in the centre with the bright sparkle ornaments?
I’m probably thinking kids party from your photos because its got things like the pinatas in it. If you can up it abit IMO it would be the best of both worlds, giving you the classy wedding you want that has the fun and spunk that goes with oyur personality.

Personally I’m partial to the laid back rustic look since that’s what I’m going for. But for YOU and your wedding maybe you can find some kind of compromise? Not 100% sparkly Christmas but not 100% NOT sparkly Christmas either. You can add bling to ANYTHING. Maybe keeping it to only 2 colors and sparkle will make it seem a bit more grown up? Purple and silver? Or hot pink and silver? Something like that.

While I voted sparkle christmas … that is some serious sparkle youve got in those inspiration pics. Will you be a bit drowned out by all the colours and sparkle?? That is a huge sparkle fest to put on if your not sure. Id tone down the colours a bit but still play up the sparkle and fun of christmas
this could be really sparkly with glitter balls
this is an awsome invitation idea

I voted sparkly Christmas, though I like some of the classed up revisions that some of the Bees have posted here. I’m really bored of the rustic pinterest wedding and I think it works better in summer.
Have you decided on a venue yet? A friend of mine got married around Christmas-time and she chose a venue that was already decorated for the holidays. So, she saved money both by having her wedding off-season AND having decorations already done and paid for.

I know this is definitely not a lot of people’s style, but I am so in love with it! My FH and I are bright, fun, and kids at heart. Sure, everyone would say our wedding was nice if we went with a softer tone… But no one would walk away and Say, “That was so Zack and Raeven!” I know I have to be careful to still keeps it classy and not childish, but I know it can be done! 🙂

I’m with you on this one. It should scream you and your fiancé. When I planned “Christmas in July”, the colors were white, gold, and chocolate brown. Here’s a few pics to give you an idea as to the direction we were headed in:
While those colors are pretty, traditional, classic, etc. They are not you. I say try your best to implement you and your groom into your wedding day.

I’m still sticking to my original post. Stick with what YOU like…no need to worry about things not being “wedding-ish”….what does that even MEAN anyways!?!? A wedding is a wedding, if you have to change something to be more “weddingish” then that means you are losing that unique/original quality that you were going for in the first place and you’re just following the crowd.
Weddingish to me means: two people are getting married, there’s a ceremony, and a wedding venue. However you decorate it shouldn’t matter. It’s becoming more popular for people to have halloween weddings which are what a lot of people may say are “unwedding-ish”…but the popularity is growing. People are doing comic book weddings, lego weddings, and do you know what else? DR. SEUSS weddings!!!! A wedding is still a wedding no matter how the place is decorated. The most important thing is that you AND your fiance are happy, comfortable, and that your guests have a good time.
Personally, we are going for more of the vintagey (more like mediteranean europe though)/garden theme because it ACTUALLY suites us and our venue. We actually decided on this before we started looking at all of this stuff on the web. I would never do it if it wasn’t us or didn’t somehow fit in with our love story in some way. I LOOOOVE your unique idea and agree with you 100% that vintage is not unique anymore, and I applaud that you are able to come up with something so unique after being bombarded with all of the vintage wedding inspiration online!

Sparkles and bright colors, but nix the Christmas tie in. Just use stuff that is available in those colors and avoid the trees and presents.

I LOVE the super colorful sparkly christmasy theme, especially since it gives the traditional Christmas decorations a new modern, whimsical twist. I think it’s totally unique and there is so much you could to with that theme.
