Diehard romantics should consider choosing December as the month for having their wedding. What a magical time of the year to share your vows. The atmosphere is charged with excitement, decorations abound, and twinkle lights cover the landscape. Truly, this can be a beautiful time to get married. 

Here are six reasons why December is the ideal time for your wedding.

Is There Less Competition If You Get Married in December?

One benefit of December wedding ceremonies is this month, in particular, is often considered off-season for weddings. You gain the benefit of more venues being available. It’s going to be a lot easier to book the date you want on this special occasion. Plan to make the arrangements several months ahead just as a precaution. Check to see if they offer special rates and packages for this time of the year.

Hotels Can Offer Special Rates in December

If you’re planning a December wedding, start thinking about guests that will need a place to stay, and what hotels and motels are near your venue. It’s important to book early since December is a busy month for vacations and holiday traveling, but the hotels should be beautifully decorated at this time of year for the season. Even better, ask if they offer special group rates so your friends and family can have a place to stay that offers privacy with comfort.

Holiday Lights and Decorations in December Can Be Spectacular 

All throughout December, many places will be decorated for the holidays, so you may want to add just a few seasonal-themed personal touches that will provide some savings on your wedding budget. Greenery with bows and twinkle lights, adding your favorite flowers, is an easy place to start. Check with your venue to see what their own holiday themes or decorations are in December.

Finding the Right Holiday Nostalgic for the Look of Your Wedding 

December evokes a lot of warm and fuzzy, and definitely nostalgic, images in people’s minds as the holiday season begins. That’s something you can tap into for your own wedding. Can you picture arriving in a horse-driven carriage or sled, snowflakes dusting your eyelids, greeted by friends and family as they share this special time with you? Think about choosing a cozy atmosphere for the reception. Also, consider using the same venue for the reception as the wedding ceremony itself. 

Why Everyone Loves a Party in December

Remember that December isn’t just a holiday month — it’s also a big month for holiday parties. Your family and friends are certain to be feeling the holiday spirit — but they’re also likely to be in a party mood. Ask your caterer if they have any holiday goodies to add to the menu. How about a hot chocolate specialty along with some eggnog or hot apple cider? Make the menu festive to celebrate the season. Can you hear Christmas music in the background?

Why December is a Fun Time of Year for a Wedding

Everybody loves the month of December and with it the seasonal holiday joy that it brings. A December wedding day provides a crisp, invigorating element that adds a degree of excitement to your special event.
