This article by Nancy Mattia, contributing writer for Martha Stewart Weddings gives advice on having a wedding during the holidays.
When holiday cheer turns into holiday jeer.
A wedding during a winter holiday weekend has always been your dream. You picture yourself surrounded by family and friends as snowflakes fall in the background of a reception spot decorated in Christmas finery. Nice image but all your guests may not share that vision of blustery bliss. Because of the timing of your wedding, some may have to give up their much-anticipated plans to go on vacation during Christmas week, or they have to cut short their annual visit to relatives who live in another state. Be considerate of the special circumstances that surround a Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa wedding so that you’re not inconveniencing anybody. Here’s how to do it right.
There are plenty of reasons to jump on the December wedding bandwagon. For starters, it’s “the most wonderful time of year.” The holiday season is in full swing, and it’s an especially great time to plan your celebration because the season isn’t over-run with weddings. Plus, hotels and event spaces are often more affordable during the winter months, so you may be able to score a great deal on a venue that otherwise may have been outside of your budget.
Need a little more incentive? Four wedding planners explain what they love most about December nuptials, and why you should consider choosing a winter date for your big day.
Winter is arguably the most underrated season for weddings. Most brides flock to times of the year with warmer temps, to plan garden- or beach-inspired affairs. A smaller handful, however, know the true warmth of a cold-weather wedding. There’s nothing quite like a snowy backdrop or the rich, gem-inspired colors so often associated with the season.
