Hosting a holiday wedding is often something that couples veer away from. The obvious attraction of a holiday wedding is the decor. I mean, who wouldn’t fall for a satin white dress with a perfect red lip? Deep red or emerald green bridesmaids dresses? What a dream! Christmas trees and hot cocoa bars to cozy it all up? Holiday weddings will leave never fading memories. So, let’s weigh the pros and cons.
One of the great things about holiday weddings for your attentive guests is that people have more time off during this season, so it might be easier for friends and family to celebrate with you. With that in mind, the holidays are something that people often think about far in advance, so announcing your date and inviting your guests well ahead of time is a wise move.
A factor that will be on your side is that any venue of interest is more likely to have increased availability this time of the year, and you will likely get quoted their off-season pricing! This can have a pretty big impact on budget saving.
When it comes to bridal attire, you have a lot more to work with in the winter. One thing often considered in the summer is thin-layered dresses to keep cool while dancing. For a winter wedding, you can add fur shawls, petticoats, and gloves! You can get as creative as you want, maybe even have a horse-drawn sleigh for picturesque moments!
Holiday weddings can go off without a hitch and be so special. But, it will take a little more consideration and planning on the front end. Fortunately, that’s where Mint Events will step in to help!
