The Magic of Holiday Weddings

Posted on by Alexa Gould

While Summer is the most popular time of year to tie the knot, many people opt for the magic of holiday weddings. It’s the perfect way to incorporate sumptuous fabrics, comfort foods, rich colors and more on your big day.

The Magic of Holiday WeddingsWe all know that the holidays are often the busiest time of year. Between office celebrations, kid’s holiday parties and family traditions, the time always moves too quickly. When you plan your wedding, be sure to keep this in mind as you create your timeline. It’s important to send your save the date out well in advance so guests have the opportunity to prioritize your big day before committing elsewhere. Additionally, keep in mind that flights are especially expensive during the holiday season. By sending your save the date, you give your guests the best chance to make cost-efficient decisions. 

One of our favorite aspects of a holiday wedding? The decor! This season allows you to play up as many or as few aspects of the holidays as you’d like. We like to add subtle touches to the decor to set the tone, but not overtake the fact that it’s your wedding day. For example, utilize beautiful winter flowers like poinsettias or glimmers of silver and blue to create your own winter wonderland. Don’t feel stuck on a holiday theme. Get creative and sparingly add holly, garland and more in unexpected ways. Also, a holiday wedding is the perfect time to take advantage of seasonal foods. With a chill in the air, soups, warm beverages and hearty fare are always a favorite. You can also add sweet treats like a hot chocolate bar for a crowd-pleaser.
