Jonathan Gibson Photography

June used to be the most popular month for weddings, but it’s easy to see why modern couples are switching it up and getting hitched during the holidays: your guests are already in a festive mood, and it’s easy to remember your anniversary. Win-win.

Besides the convenience of it all, holiday weddings are just so darn pretty. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite ideas, from invitations to gowns to decor, for your inspiration:
