Chandler, AZ – Current temperature- 106 degrees; 20% precipitation; 22% humidity; dew point at 60.

Enough said.  It’s hot in Arizona at this time of the year which inspired me to have cool thoughts in mind like Christmas. Therefore, we are doing Christmas in July wedding theme.  Thanks for the suggestion Bonnie Adams of Inspired Occasions in Mesa, AZ.  She creates such unique cakes so if you are in need of a cake, check her out.

Having a Christmas themed wedding, a tree is a must.  This will also serve as your gift section rather than having a gift table.  Also for the guests who will be giving cards, they can just set it on the tree as part of the decor.  The Christmas tree is also going to be a nice prop you and your guests.  It’ll be a great Christmas picture to remember, everytime they look at that year’s Christmas photo, they will think of you!!!

Red should be one of your colors for your Christmas wedding.  So many options from poinsettias, red ribbons, and red candles.  One decor that you should also have are the Christmas lights.  You can hang them from the ceiling or on the wall.  This will also give your reception a nice ambiance.  Try the twinkling lights, they will definitely give a nice touch.
