The Pros and Cons of a Holiday Wedding

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Weddings during holidays; the subject is a rather hot topic. Bring it up in conversation with your friends and I’ll guarantee you everyone will have a different take on it. Some people think they are wonderful, some find it intrusive for your guests’, others think it can come of as a bit cheesy. Here’s a list of pros and cons to help you decide the best thing for you to do.



  • If you get married during holidays such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, or Valentines Day, the hall you are having your reception in will no doubt have lovely decorations up for your event – free of charge.
  • Your wedding pictures will already have a dazzling unifying theme
  • Your guests will – odds are – already be off from work
  • Prices for wedding halls, catering, disc jockeys, etc can sometimes be cheaper due to a lack of demand
  • Your guests will already be in a festive mood



  • If you have a lot of out of town guests, hotels and airfare can be more expensive
  • If you are getting married ON a holiday as oppose to NEAR a holiday (aka weekend after Thanksgiving, weekend before Christmas, etc), your guests might be upset having to arrange their holiday plans around you
  • If you have a specific theme in mind for your wedding, having it around a holiday will mean you will need to 4thJULYBridalpay extra to have your hall change their decorations
  • If not executed properly, the wedding can come off as hokie. Sure everyone loves the 4th of July, but having the American flag in every inch of your wedding motif may come off a bit…how shall I say this…odd. 

I hope this helped you in your decision on whether or not to have a wedding around the holidays. In my personal opinion, there is nothing wrong with having a wedding around a holiday that is special to you and your future husband…as long as it is tastefully done and as long as you are not insulted if a few guests decline your invite.
