There’s something about the holidays that make this time of year special for weddings. From Thanksgiving to New Years, this festive time of year is perfect for all celebrations. But planning a winter holiday wedding can add extra layers of planning for you.
I got married over a Thanksgiving weekend because my family that’s scattered along the northeast always comes home for Thanksgiving. That way, I knew people were already making the trip and wouldn’t have to change any plans. But the flip side of that can also be true. If your family has strong traditions for a particular holiday, it might be difficult to make them change them for your wedding day.

New Year’s Eve weddings are always popular. It’s already a festive night, and the party atmosphere just adds to your happiness. Work with your venue, however, if you plan to keep the party going to midnight. We recommend starting the reception later, which means you’re not breaking the bank with extra time on your reception.
Whatever you do, make sure you’re making those plans early, and letting your family and friends know ahead of time, too. The holiday season can be very stressful, and adding wedding planning to it can get overwhelming. You also want to give your family and friends enough time to make any changes to their holiday traditions.
Happy Holidays from all of us at the Heritage!
