With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years right around the corner, we have a few Dos and Don’ts for your wedding day during the holidays!
Give as much notice as you can!
If your wedding day is close to a holiday, it’s important to give your guests as much notice as you can. When it comes to invites and save the dates, consider sending your save the dates out a little earlier than what it typical for wedding planning.
Incorporate your favorite seasonal drinks for your signature cocktails
Signature cocktails are a great way to add touches of the holiday season to your wedding day without the holiday becoming the theme. It’s a perfect opportunity to incorporate cranberry, pumpkin spice or a warm cider!
Keep your vendors in mind
It’s important to think about travel fees for your vendors. Travel prices are typically higher during the holiday season, so it’s a good idea to add a little wiggle room in your budget to accommodate the added prices.
Remember that it’s your wedding day — NOT a holiday party
Your bridal vision should outweigh the holiday details. While holiday details such as Christmas music and red and green decor are touches that will remind your guests what season we are in, you don’t want your guests feeling like they’re at a holiday party instead of your wedding!
DON’T be surprised by higher prices
Higher prices come with the time of year, so it becomes even more important to prioritize the important elements on your big day! This will allow you to splurge on the things that are most important and let the less important details take a back seat when it comes to budget.
