Holiday weddings are quite popular with couples who want to add some extra festive vibes to their celebration. And while a holiday wedding can definitely be a huge success, it is important for you to keep in mind that this type of event can come with its own special set of challenges. What are some of the most important things to remember if you have decided on a holiday wedding? Read on and find out more.
· Send out Save the Date cards as soon as possible. Many holidays come with extended weekends – but this is not always great news. While some guests will find it the perfect opportunity to travel for your wedding, others might have other things planned for this holiday – so it is important to give them the heads-up as early as possible, so that they plan accordingly.
· Prices may be heftier. Depending on what holiday you choose for your wedding, please keep in mind that the prices may be a bit higher than in other times of the year. Because venues and vendors are busier during holidays, it is also important to make sure they will be available for your Big Day.
· Careful with the theme. We highly recommend that you don’t go overboard with incorporating the holiday theme into your wedding. Sure, serving seasonal foods and having a holiday-inspired signature cocktail are both great ideas. But when it comes to décor and music, try not to exaggerate with using the holiday colors (e.g. white, blue and red for the 4th of July) and holiday music (e.g. playing Christmas carols at your wedding).
