Are You Planning a December Wedding? Here are 5 Tips

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.

Getting Engaged During the Holidays: What to do Next?

It is not a secret that Christmas time is the best chance to pop up the big question. It is not only a season of merriment and joys but also a season of romance! While celebrating your wedding engagement during the holidays sounds exciting, there are still some factors to consider. Below are some of the tested and proven tips on how to pull off a wedding engagement amidst the Christmas rush.

1. Make it intimate and personal. 

For most couples, Christmas Eve dinner is a good time for a wedding proposal because this meal enhances the wonderful holiday feeling.  You have the choice to have it witnessed by your loved ones and close relatives to their delight or have it expressed in an intimate dinner for two.

2. Make your New Year’s Day one for the books

A proposal with a big bang on New Years Day is another bright tip on getting engaged during the holidays. Any engagement happening on or right after midnight is considered a New Year’s Day engagement- and we know that a lot of couples like to jump-start the new year right with a kiss, cuddle and dance amorously with a proposal!

3. Use the holiday season to spark your creativity

Proposing during the holiday season inspires you to get creative and unique in coming up with a wedding theme. The wide array of Christmas seasons and holiday pegs will give you plenty of ideas on how you want your wedding reception to be celebrated. 

4. Look for collaborators or accomplices

Having a reliable bunch of people to help you keep things secret is a good thing to consider. A sibling or a best friend just knows the right approach leading to a proposal that your sweetheart would love. Or perhaps, a close buddy can be the best guy to set up the scene and cues before popping the question! 

5. Dedicate everything, every moment  for the engagement day

Getting up in the morning with great anticipation of what’s going to happen on your upcoming proposal scene is enough to keep you excited and energetic all throughout the day.  Never leave a dull time after proposing, hop right away to a place for yourselves and enjoy the rest of the day or evening.  Or If you are too excited to announce your engagement, try a day when you’ve got a waiting party to head to later on.

However you plan your wedding engagement, one thing is for sure – it has to be special, personal, and romantic! We at Mimi Ebichi Events make every moment special – from the wedding engagement, wedding preparation, up until the wedding day itself. We are committed to bringing you a blissful and unforgettable wedding experience with a touch of our craft. Book a free consultation today!

Weddings During and After the Holidays: Yay or Nay?

There are couples who opt to celebrate their love during the most wonderful time of the year. Sure, this is a time for merriments, festivities, and all the people are in celebratory mode. Indeed, weddings during the Holiday season bring about a distinct mood and bliss.

However, there are also cons that need to be considered. As much as the season is one of the happiest times of the year, it is also the season where people spend the most money on. Here are the following possible scenarios that you may want to evaluate before deciding to have a Christmas and post-Christmas wedding:

1. Everyone is a busy bee
Holidays are meant to reconnect with families and friends. Because reunions and year-enders are just around the corner, people are busy with their last-minute shopping, buying presents, prepping up meals, and other preparations alike. The Christmas season is also a time where most of us have hectic schedules. Because of this, there is a good possibility that some guests might regretfully turn down your wedding invitation simply because of their busy schedules. You may want to consider that some guests may spend their Holidays out of town with their families which makes it extra difficult for them to attend your wedding.


2. Rates and Availability of Services
There are vendors and caterers that charge at a much higher rate during the Holiday season. If you are on a tighter budget, then the Holiday season might not be an option for you. Some caterers and vendors also spend their Holiday breaks, and you may not get the desired date that you have initially planned. Plus, you will be just one of their enormously many clients during this season that which may compromise some of your expectations of these vendors.

3. Availability of the Venues
As mentioned in the previous item, vendors and caterers work under great saturation and pressure during the Holiday season. Venues for receptions are of course, under no exception at all. It may be difficult to book a good venue for your reception during the Holiday season because of the huge demands of clients. Usually, some venues are already fully booked for December just about 6 months prior to the Holiday season. Add to that is the threat of Covid. So that means, there might be less availability of venues to choose from.


4. Your wedding might just be one of their ‘to-do’ lists
The harsh reality is, celebrating your wedding during the Holiday season might not get the spotlight it deserves. For one, people are busy with their own Christmas celebrations with their families, and some may opt to just stay at home due to pandemic health concerns. People would be busy thinking about their own Christmas celebrations in this challenging time and this may cause them to give secondary attention to your wedding.
