Congratulations!! I know your wedding seems like it's far away, but it's going to catch up with you faster than you'd think.

The Christmas in July theme is super adorable! Obviously, right around/right after Christmas is the best time to pick up decorations for the reception (and is actually just about right on the suggested timeline to take care of decor), but I would keep an eye out for ornament sets that perhaps have a more "summery" feel to the color scheme - rather than just the stereotypical green and red.
I think a great idea for the cake topper would be to affix small ornaments on a base and maybe mix it in with smaller summertime trinkets, like seashells - maybe even top it with your monogram. Again, I would avoid the red and green color scheme and opt for elements of Christmas like wrapped gifts as your centerpieces/favors, maybe in metallic pinks and blues and silvers.
Bridesmaids gifts are easy! If your sister is willing to help you make jewelery, go for it! Make sure it's something that will match their dresses and go from there.
If you're in to the "ring a bell for a kiss" tradition, get jingle bells and tie them with ribbon in your colors!

And I would make sure your DJ plays "A Christmas Gift to you from Phil Spector" during the receptions - it's a VERY wedding-friendly Christmas album with nothing but cute Motown Christmas songs - and play the Charlie Brown Christmas album during cocktail hour. Smiley

Thank you for the ideas!  And yes, there will not be red and green Smiley  I'm thinking about like a smoky blue and purples with like crystals so I guess more like a winter feel.  I love the idea of using ornaments for decor!!  I'll have to keep my eye out for some good ones this Christmas season!  And I think everyone will love the Charlie Brown Christmas songs (I watch that show every year, it's tradition!)

Congratulations! My boyfriend (Well, now fiance  Cheesy) proposed last Saturday, and we will be getting married next July as well.
For our wedding (so far) I want to make:
My dress
Favors (homemade jam)
Invitations
Centerpieces?
His tux (I want to either find one that suits his style or customize one).

Not sure what else... I will be shipping out for Navy boot camp this July though, and afterward (all the way past the wedding) I will be in intensive schooling for Nuclear Engineering so I can't take on too much. I am hoping to at least be able to do those things though!
