Holiday Weddings: Fact vs. Fiction

Thinking of having a holiday wedding around Thanksgiving, Christmas or Chanukah? Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? But is the holiday wedding all it's cracked up to be?

This time of year, catering properties like hotels and country clubs and catering halls are loaded with all kinds of parties for the holidays--and not just weddings. This means they're busy, very busy!

And don't forget Mother Nature. If you live in a part of the country or the world where the weather could wreck havoc on your plans--like a violent blizzard--then you should think twice about having a wedding in a place and at a time, when the festivities could be cancelled. After all, weddings are just too expensive to take chances.

A blizzard means that your catering property could shut down and your baker, for example, may not be able to deliver your wedding cake, etc. And what happens if your out-of-town family and friends, who are so near-and-dear to you, don't make it to the wedding? Now that's a disaster!

Holiday parties mean that your wedding may not be a top priority with the catering property who's hosting your wedding!

Holiday Weddings Cost More $$$

We currently live in tough economic times and people are cutting wedding costs, big time! Everyone wants to have the wedding of their dreams--but they're doing it for less--a lot less... 

For that reason, you might want to think twice about having a holiday wedding. Vendors and venues charge more during this time because they're booking all sorts of holiday parties, and not just weddings! That means they are in control and can pick and choose the parties they'd like to have. They also know there's a waiting line for cancellations.

Moral of the story: You'll pay more for vendors and venues at holiday times than at any other

You don't want your wedding flowers to look like this, either!

Holiday Weddings & TLC (Tender Loving Care)

When it comes to weddings, TLC is a very important factor.

Who wants to have a wedding when a catering property's only concern is how many holiday parties they can book (besides YOUR wedding). And what about the staff, who is so exhausted from working seven days a week that your wedding is a second priority? Or the florist who has delivered so many holiday flowers that your wedding flowers start to look a little dead? I think you get the picture...

The point is that you must weigh the pros and cons before YOU decide that a holiday wedding is right for you!
