We had a green apple theme on our first wedding, which I thought worked out pretty well. We got lots of compliments about it, but then again who tells the bride and groom their decorations sucked ;)
Our wedding reception was held at a seurantalo, which is kind of a rural community house. They usually have dances, theater perfomances and other community events there. This particular seurantalo was built in the early 1920s and the interior fit our theme perfectly.
Here's the interior, we had already moved the tables and had started to decorate the hall:
and here's the almost decorated hall:
Our budget was super-small, about 10% of my brother's wedding budget, so we had to really pick and choose where we spent our money. In order to save money, we had to give up on getting floral centerpieces on the tables. Instead we went with fruits, we bought several boxes of green apples from the wholesale place and used those in cheap Ikea vases with some colored sand on the bottom. Since our theme was green apples this worked out pretty well :)
So the green apple theme was a success, at least I was pretty happy about how it turned out! We'll see what the classy christmas/winter wonderland theme will turn out :)
