Thinking of getting hitched in December? We don’t blame you – it’s such a romantic time of year! Here are 10 reasons to further tempt you…
Decadent food and drink
When it comes to food you can forget light summer salads and instead indulge in some seriously rich winter feasting! We’re talking tables laden with wild mushroom soup, steak and stout pie, truffle mash, Brussels sprouts with pancetta followed by poached pears and bread and butter panettone. Don’t forget the aromatic jugs of mulled wine.
December is such a glorious time of year for aromas; think pine trees, festive foliage and clove-studded oranges.
Free wedding decorations
Many venues are dressed for Christmas with gorgeously festooned Christmas trees, lashings of fairy lights and other festive touches. For you, that means your wedding decorations are already sorted. More mulled wine, then!
Who says shorter days are a bad thing? Short days mean long nights, which means extra time for nighttime celebrations. You can get more use out of your festive lighting whether that’s fairy lights, candles or sparklers. You could even arrange to have fireworks!
Everyone is in a good mood
‘Tis the season to be jolly and all that. During December, work tends to take a backseat, there is plenty of socialising and eating and everyone is focused on having a good time. What a perfect set-up for a fun-filled wedding.
Cute honeymoon ideas
Embrace the cold months and honeymoon somewhere spectacular like Norway or Iceland. Alternatively, it’s the perfect time for a far-flung island honeymoon. Time to start Googling ‘winter sun’…
The British weather can’t ruin your day
Good old Blighty gives us many things, but dependable weather isn’t one of them. However, when it comes to planning a December wedding it doesn’t matter. You won’t be straining yourself keeping your fingers crossed for glorious sunshine – your expectations are firmly set in the winter weather camp. The upshot? No disappointment on the big day and you can simply focus on having a good time instead.
Most venues discount their winter wedding packages, as it’s a less traditional time of the year to wed. Hello, savings! Looks like that Seychelles honeymoon is back on the cards…
Fun fashion options
Forget beachy boho gowns – winter wedding fashion is all about being bold. Think faux fur shawls, glitzy capes and dramatic dress details like high necks or long sleeves. You can also have fun playing about with hair and make-up options. We love a bold statement lip and winter flower crowns are always stunning.
Stand out from the crowd
Most weddings happen in spring or summer. By throwing a December wedding you’ll automatically stand out from the crowd and be memorable simply for being different!
