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:


Invitations

Invitation by Five Dot Design. Flowers by Marti’s Floral Design.

Take advantage of the fact that most venues are already decorated for the holidays (hello, budget!) and make the seasonal decor work for you.


Desserts

Place your cake on an ornate gold stand, and add some sparkle to handmade marshmallows with edible glitter (yes, that’s a thing).

Give a nod to Christmas tree season with deep red blossoms and a spray of evergreens, or get your Queen Elsa on with a bouquet of snowy white blooms.

Yes, snow is cold, but it’s awfully pretty in pictures! Have your photographer get a few shots in the falling snow or with fresh white powder in the background.

Keep it simple and stick to a black, white, and red color scheme. It looks classic and festive at the same time.


Atmosphere

MIX IT UP: Serve a classic cocktail, like these created by mixologist Molly Wellmann, that speaks to your style. Top to bottom: Sweet Heat, Southside, Brunswick Sour.CWW13_Party14-photosize-
