Holiday Wedding Planning -- 'Tis The Wedding Season?

by Kenneth Koch of Your Wedding

It is the most wonderful time of the year! What better time to celebrate a couple's wedding then a December Christmas or New Year's Eve holiday wedding? How about the romance of Valentine's Day or the tradition of an Irish wedding on St. Patrick's Day? Holiday weddings can be magical, but will require special planning.

Plan Your Holiday Wedding Far In Advance

Holidays are the busiest times of year for many wedding related vendors. For example, wedding florists, limousine rental companies, catering halls and wedding invitation printers are all heavily booked around the holiday seasons. Start the planning at least a year in advance of your holiday wedding.

Four Ways To Save Your Holiday Wedding

Save The Holiday Wedding Date Early

It is a good idea to send out 'Save The Date' cards to people you intend to invite to the holiday wedding reception. These pre-wedding invitation cards should be sent out at least two months prior to the mailing of your invitations. The advance notice will allow invitees to make their holiday plans in advance around your wedding date.
