How to Start Planning a Wedding During the Holidays

Start the fun part early, browsing social media for style inspo to find what you really want and feel. Put together a mood board or two and then narrow down the choice during the planning process.

Use holiday get-togethers to celebrate your engagement and help with your planning.

Who needs an extra reason for celebration during the holidays? Engaged couples, of course! Announce the good news, enjoy your engagement phase, and maybe throw a party too. There is no doubt that December brings a busier than usual schedule, visits with family and friends, and tons of reasons to host a party during the holidays, but one of the extra fun ones is to celebrate an engagement!

Don’t send save-the-date cards in the rush of the Christmas card season.

The main reason why I tell my couples not to send their save the dates during this time is because you have a bigger chance of it getting put on the back burner during Christmas time. Also, so many packages and mail get lost during the holiday season; you don’t want your beautiful card to be one of them! If possible, I always recommend sending them either before December or right after the New Year.Bonus: You can start collecting your family and friends’ addresses!

the ugly part of planning a wedding is setting a budget

I know it’s not fun, but it needs to be done initially. The last thing you want to do is splurge on a venue or vendor and find out later that it’s completely out of range, with little left for everything else. If you decide to go with a wedding planner, they can help you set it up.

Take advantage of the holiday sales.

All good sales to use to your advantage while you are planning! The most things that I see that you can purchase during these times are wedding dresses and suits, accessories, invitation suites, decor, and even some vendors run specials at the end of the year!

Most importantly, do not forget to enjoy your engagement time! Take advantage of the holiday get-togethers, share the news in person, and, if possible, celebrate by throwing an engagement party with your favourite people.

There are lots of reasons to host a party during the holidays, but one of the extra fun ones is to celebrate an engagement! So, if you’ve recently said yes to your favourite people, be prepared to share your beautiful proposal story with well-meaning family and friends who want to hear all about it and are going to share their own wedding planning experience. After that, you just need to put the champagne on ice and get ready for a great time!.
