SoonToBeeMartinez:  Is it important to you to have a church ceremony?

If not, do you live where ordinary people can conduct a civil ceremony? e.g a friend, family member, or even yourselves.

You do not need to be registered with the state to perform a marriage in Texas, you just need to be ordained, which can be done online for free. So you could have anyone you want officiate.

I don’t think you should have any issues finding a place to get married. A lot of vendors offer non-Saturday discounts but that may be negated by the fact that it’s a holiday.

SoonToBeeMartinez:  I think there has been some good advice in here so far, concerning possibly having a friend or family member officiate the wedding.

Your best bet now might be to establish a budget and start calling venues. Find out who is in your budget and if they do weddings on December 24. Don’t forget that you also might need to find other vendors like florist, DJ, lighting, transportation, catering, etc. It’s important to figure out the logistics of all of this to see if they are also able to work on your date.
