Shopping at Christmas Saves Money On Your Wedding

By:Dee Power

Christmas is a great time to buy decorations for your wedding, even if it takes place in March, or any other month for that matter. No I'm not talking about using red and green garland to decorate the cake table. What I am talking about is using decorations that don't look like traditional Christmas items.

For example: I went to Pier One and found some adorable fish themed Christmas tree ornaments. Each was a different fish shape, about six inches across, with glitter and sequins. The colors were dark blue, light blue, aqua and white. If I were having a beach themed wedding these would make darling center pieces placed in a fish bowl with salt in the bottom to mimic sand and a few shells. That's how I used them in my bath room.

If you're planning a winter wedding perhaps you're thinking of a wonderland theme. Snowflakes could be attached to silver spray painted branches as centerpieces. Strung on fishing wire and hung from the ceiling they look like they're floating gently down to earth.

Christmas mini lights go on sale after Christmas and white lights look very romantic. String them over arches. Use battery operated lights to decorate the cake and gift tables. Please battery operated lights in frosted glass vases. Intersperse them through greenery.

You've probably noticed that colors other than red and green are popular for Christmas. One year purple and pink were the must have colors, another year blues from baby blue to navy were all the rage. The popular colors show up in ribbons and bows as well as tree decorations. Pick up wire edged ribbon now on sale if you can find your wedding colors. Beautiful fluffy bows can take the place of more pricey flower arrangements at the end of the church pews on the aisles.

Candles are huge at Christmas. Votives, votive candles, tapers, and pillar candles in white, off white, red, and of course green are available at reasonable prices. Candles in a pretty votive candle holder can be used as a wedding favor for your guests.

Good places to find decorations at great prices are drugstores and big box stores. Unusual decoration can be found at import stores and boutiques. Don't forget craft stores and of course shop online.

Look at Christmas decorations through new eyes and you just might find that perfect accent for your wedding or favor for your guest.
