The winter season brings us fond scenes of sipping hot chocolate by the fire, cozy snuggle sessions, family get-togethers, and holiday parties. While it’s a busy time of the year, there’s something amazing about it, and throwing a winter wedding should not be overlooked. Yes, it’s tricky to add another family get-together around the holiday season, but if this magical season inspires you, we encourage you to go for it!
Choosing Winter Weddings Chicago Date
Trying to avoid every Friendsgiving, secret Santa, and holiday party is nearly impossible. Focus on what you and your fiance want and ideally what accommodates your closest immediate family and wedding party members. If your family is typically already all together for a holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, then it might actually be easier for them to travel in and attend multiple occasions.
New Year’s Eve Weddings
New Year’s Eve is typically a popular wedding date, but let’s face it, throwing an amazing celebration to close out the year and ring in a new one is super exciting. This unique holiday makes for a memorable wedding, but be sure to reserve your location, hotel block, and vendors as soon as possible. With so many parties that day, private or public, availability may be limiting your options on choosing the exact vendors you’d like.
