Should I Really Get Married At Christmas Time?
If you watch tv shows, films or even soaps, then Christmas is always made out to be the best time of year to get married and especially Christmas Day. Recent studies have shown that Christmas Day is the least popular day to actually get married on and we can imagine logistically it’s also quite hard to plan as well. However, that doesn’t mean you should rule out a Christmas wedding, the festive season is still a highly popular time of year to get married, however there are a number of things you need to consider before rushing ahead and booking a Christmas wedding; from who can actually attend to the wedding to what the costs are going to be for everyone involved.
The festive period is already an expensive time of year for many families and do you really want to add to the pressure on your loved ones at the time of year? And some people might actually struggle to get the day of work, as many companies have restrictions over time off in December. But when it comes to Christmas weddings you also have to consider you are competing with Christmas parties and festive celebrations so getting a booking for a venue might not be that easy. However, booking a Christmas wedding isn’t all bad, you can get some great deals during the festive period and with it being off-peak for weddings, you might find the wedding itself is cheaper overall.
There’s also something about throwing a wedding during the Christmas period, from the chance of snow to how magical that time of year simply feels. Everyone is always in a good mood at Christmas as well, so booking a Christmas wedding might actually turn out to be a good thing for you.
