Although Valentines Day and New Years Day are the most popular, all holidays are busier than non holidays, so the key is planning. You’ll want to make sure you start the arrangements earlier than you normally would to ensure that locations are available. Since you have chosen to be married on a holiday, keep the theme throughout the wedding and the reception. Listed are some ideas you can use for keeping in the holiday spirit of your wedding day. Superstition says to always start your wedding ceremony on the half hour when the minute hand is moving upward to bring a happy wedding.
New Year’s is formal and a party night. Dress is something sleek, and formal. Have the person who marries you to pronounce you man and wife at the stroke of midnight to ring in the New Year’s with, “You may now kiss the bride.” Instead of the traditional rice throwing, give your guests confetti, and noise makes for when the ceremony is over.
We all know the color of love is red, and Valentine’s Day Wedding theme filled with red, hearts and flowers is sure to be a winner. This is a time when anyone would love bridesmaids in red and a red bouquet for the bride. At the reception, keep it red with hearts and flowers on the tables.
For Christmas, placing a Christmas tree behind the person who is performing your ceremony looks fabulous. The bride could carry poinsettias with tiny pine-cones for her bouquet, and the groom can use small poinsettias or peddles from the poinsettias in their lapel. At the reception, have many Christmas trees, use pine-cones, and pine needles for the center pieces, with red bows tied around the vases.
