This only works if you are a go getter and are already planning your wedding for next winter. Shop the christmas sales and get all the decor you will need for your wedding at 75-90% off! My sister-in-law is a real planner and got all her reception decor by shopping the clearout christmas sales. She got 4 shopping carts full of stuff at walmart for under $100! Not only did she have a gorgeous reception, but now she has all the christmasy winter decor she could want. I thought it was a great idea. It would work too if your colors were reds.
