Here’s a romantic thought—get married on Christmas! It sure makes it easier to remember those precious anniversary dates if your wedding is the same day as Christmas or another well-known holiday.

It’s also a great excuse to get out of Christmas dinner with the family— or to get everyone together to celebrate, depending on your situation. “Would like to make it to Christmas Dinner, but have to go have a romantic getaway with my wife!”

No? Not going to fly? Oh well, it was worth a shot, honey.

Seriously, the holiday season has actually become a popular time for booking weddings and why not? Forty percent of engagements happen between the months of November and February. About fifty percent of all weddings happen on the same 25 days, according to another survey. While 76 percent of all weddings happen in the summer and autumn months, that also gives incentive for other couples to save money and deal with less crowding and stress by having the wedding in December or November.

Besides, who wouldn’t want a wedding held in a season where everything is chilly, snowy and decorated with love? It is a great idea and one sure to please the family, since traveling in December is preferred to other seasonal travels anyway.

Of course, having the perfect holiday wedding is a challenge in its own right. Just remember to plan things out and keep things simple…and keep these four managing tips in mind to make sure your November-December wedding goes swimmingly.

Think subtle colors, not the traditional Christmas.

Subtle seasonal colors might include forest green, silver, gold and blue—there’s no need to drape everyone in red and green like an elf factory! It’s also discouraged to rely on Christmas music. Instead, think wreathes—think Christmas party gifts and a wintry fur shawl.

Plan in November to wed in December.

The more planning time you get, the better, so start planning in November, or even sooner. Your party planner and vendor may lack sufficient time if you contact them in early or mid December, since their season may very well end around Christmas time.
A spokesperson for, a wedding education site offering information on wedding planning, states that a small guest list works much better than a grand summer wedding for the whole extended family and friends network. “Holidays tend to be crowded—not for weddings but for other vacationing families. Many family members may have difficulty arranging for time off in early or mid-December so the smaller the guest list the better.”

It’s an ideal scenario if you want a small wedding of close family and friends anyway.

Think festive because it ties in nicely AND saves money.

Holiday-themed foods work well with seasonal weddings, whether it’s cranberry cocktails, or Christmas apple pie, colorful variation on the traditional wedding cake. Seasonal food is much more affordable and even flowers that thrive in the winter will come at a lower cost. All in all, a great option if you want to save money on the wedding for the honeymoon, but don’t want to appear “cheap” about it.

4. Make the wedding a visual delight with wedding sparklers.

What makes a wedding memorable? Strong, stark visuals and in snowy weather it’s going to be aesthetically amazing to record and photograph. Besides being visually stunning, wedding sparklers are also convenient compared to the old and mostly useless rituals of throwing bubbles and bird seed. Good quality sparklers are made with metal wire and create sparkles without heavy smoke—a signature of cheaper sparklers made of bamboo or wood. The site offers a variety of sparklers in multiple sizes, including 10, 20, and 36 inches. There are also romantic heart shaped sparklers for the truly sentimental.

Make your wedding come alive and become a cherished memory among the whole family by heeding these tips and improving the aesthetics of an already merry marriage.
