Amaryllis are also a popular flower this time of the year. The colors are very vibrant and come in beautiful shades of red and white.
Run with color palettes your guests will not expect. Unless you are going for a Christmas themed wedding try and shy away from red, green and gold. Spice things up by decorating with different color palettes than what people will expect. More contemporary color palette choices may be navy blue and silver or an all white wedding. Consider filling large glass vases with pine cones and different size and shapes of glass ornaments. Drape twinkle or icicle lights around your head table or up above the dance floor for a stunning look. There are other cute themes you could run with besides that of the holidays. Different considerations for décor’ could be; gingerbread men, snowmen, snowflakes, and stars.
One last tip, be careful of your date, you don’t want anything to close to the holidays, or you may risk forcing guests to double up on events. Lastly, be sure to have fun with your wedding planning and enjoy all that this month has to offer!
