While winter isn’t the most popular time of year for nuptials, a December wedding definitely has its own advantages. There is also less ‘wedding fatigue’ since it’s a much slower wedding season, unlike the spring and summer months. From cooler weather to the holiday cheer and decor, here are a few reasons a December wedding may be perfect for you.
For couples trying to avoid the overheated summer months, December is the perfect time for cooler weather. You may even get some unexpected snow on your wedding day! Make your December wedding extra cozy by offering blankets for guests, a hot cocoa bar and a warm fireplace to escape the cold.
Since December is full of so many holidays, you can expect a lot of venues to already have gorgeous decor in place prior to your wedding. You’ll have the beautiful ambiance of the holiday season along with any additional wedding decorations you choose to have. You can also call ahead to find out what types of holiday decor your venue will have and in what colors so you can plan your wedding colors accordingly.
The demand for wedding venues and vendors is often lower in the winter months, which allows you to find lower prices with their off-season rates. You’ll also likely see better availability for your wedding dates when planning a December wedding. Once you’ve set your budget, you may even have some leftover funds to splurge on your honeymoon!
Best Anniversary Dates
Couples who marry in December will forever have an anniversary that falls during the holiday season. Take advantage of the extra celebrations by making your holidays even more special with an anniversary getaway. Another fun perk? You can take a tropical winter honeymoon to celebrate your new marriage AND the holidays.
