Considering getting married on a holiday? There’s a lot to consider if you’re thinking about a holiday wedding, like guest availability or even finding vendors to help. We’ll get into why getting married on a holiday is a great plan, plus ideas for holiday celebrations like 4th of July weddings, Christmas weddings, Thanksgiving weddings, and more!
Christmas elopements are all snow, pine cones, and Santa Claus, right? Think again! This couple had an alternative twist to their Christmas elopement with spooky goth details and the most unique wedding venue.
When we started planning our wedding, we quickly realized that since our families were separated by many states (I was raised in the midwest, he's from Virginia), it was going to be a logistical nightmare for us to get everyone together in one spot, so we decided to honor both sides of our family by coming to them. So we planned two weddings, one in VA and another celebration in IL.
We’ve got some stunning dark Christmas wedding inspiration, but it’s probably not what you’re thinking. There are luminous fairy lights, a holiday-colored macaron tower(!), festive and fizzy drinks, pops of crimson flowers and drapery over lush and dark greenery and pomegranates, modern deep red sculptural cakes, and energy mist favors. This definitely isn’t your usual Christmas wedding decor!
I heard a very silly tale that turned out to be pretty damned romantic that I just had to share. Alyssa saw a hilarious “dudoir” Christmas card that piqued her interest. This led to a new relationship, new tradition of creative Christmas cards, and an eventual proposal.
Here’s the whole tale from Alyssa herself…
Winter weddings are, in my opinion, the unsung heroes of the wedding world, especially when it comes to fashion. I mean, is there anything more lovely than a wedding portrait in the snow?! So gorg. And when you’re hauling your butt out into said snow, you might want a matching winter wedding headpiece, veil, crown, or even a woolly hat to match. I did some digging to find snowflakes, crystals, juniper, and more in hats, crowns, headpieces, and veils to adorn your wintry noggin.
