As if holidays couldn’t get any better.
Choosing a date is one of the biggest battles a couple will face when planning their wedding — they must consider time off work, weather, high/low season, birthdays, trips and so on. Back in the day, you wouldn’t think of planning a wedding that fell on a holiday. However, the modern couple is wholeheartedly embracing the idea of themed and holiday weddings and going all out. The more reason to celebrate, the better. We’re seeing fun decorations, traditions and costumes in abundance — with the couple at the forefront, the hosts of the festivities.
CHRISTMAS/WINTER: While we love a springtime soiree, there’s something über romantic about a cozy Christmas-themed wedding. Already feeling festive this time of year, guests will be thrilled to have an occasion (apart from an office party) to wear that snazzy holiday dress or suit.
NEW YEAR’S EVE: Ring in the new year with your best friends, family and brand new spouse. Dare we say this may be the only time when wedding guests won’t lose steam toward the end of the reception and hold strong until midnight (at the earliest)? Party on.
HALLOWEEN: One of the most popular themed holiday weddings, Halloween I dos — with an ironic spooky backdrop and costumed guests — are wicked fun.
ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Celebrate being lucky in love with an Irish-themed bash complete with a vibrant green palette, clovers, hearty fare and overflowing brews. Lucky you, lucky guests.
MARDI GRAS: Let the good times roll with a colorful New Orleans-inspired fete. Beads, King’s Cake and masks, oh my!
FOURTH OF JULY: Perfect weather, a pre-established color palette and sparklers? Sounds like a recipe for a memorable marriage.
