December is packed with celebrations, food, and family time. But did you know that it is also one of the most sought-after seasons of the year to tie the knot? If you love everything that makes the Christmas holidays very special, then you have all the reasons to have a December wedding! Below are some tips on how to pull off a wedding in a season of merriment and festivity.
1. Choose a reliable wedding venue
Outdoor or indoor winter weddings do not matter. However, you must be ready should Mother Nature decide to shower a blizzard instead of snow onto your event graciously. If the temperature drops and the only option is to hold the entire event indoors, make sure that your chosen wedding venue is capable to hold the ceremony up way to the reception portion. Plus, partying inside and peeking out on a chill day makes a sense of coziness that will bond you and your guests.
2. Monitor the weather and traffic conditions
Bad weather means horrendous traffic; so be updated on the possibilities of travel hazards and make sure to inform your valued wedding guests beforehand. It is also important to take note of the extra time for travel to your ceremony no matter how near or far they are coming. Lastly, make them feel at ease regarding their vehicle parking slots. You do not want them to shovel a pile of snow before taking off from the event.
3. Secure a wedding insurance
Winter weather, especially during the Christmas season, is always unpredictable and therefore could be challenging. A blizzard can ruin most of your wedding preparations. Because of this, it is best to seek advice with the help of your trusted wedding planner on securing a wedding insurance policy.
4. Make your wedding guests feel comfortable
One of the things that you have to consider when having a Christmas wedding is the comfort of your guests. Your guests may feel a little chilly during the wedding reception. To address this, make sure that the wedding venue is warm and cozy enough to make your guests feel comfortable. It is best to seek the advice of your reliable wedding planner and venue coordinator for heating amenities like fire pits to make the place cozy.
5. A Candle-lit Wedding Theme
Winter weddings never go out of style with a candle-light theme! Aside from its elegance, it is very sustainable and friendly to the environment. Plentiful candles with great wine and a hearty meal will also be an instant crowd-pleaser. It will truly add an extra wintry romance paired with smooth jazz, romantic music playing in the background.
Planning a winter wedding can be truly magical and romantic given the snow and cozy feel that can create memorable stunning photos.

If I were to host a wedding this year, I would make sure to hire a video production service that may record the memories. Well, I also agree with you that it will be best to hire a wedding planner. Thank you for sharing the importance of investing in decors.
I liked how this post shared that we should choose a venue that can carry the wedding ceremony up way to the reception party. My friend wants to invite a lot of people to her wedding. I should advise her to pick a venue with enough space.
