Any other brides getting married New Year’s Day? I know it’s getting SUPER close and I was wondering what has been the most difficult part of planning your wedding around the holidays…
…my family has always celebrated Christmas over 3-4 days, and there are a lot of traditions that we do every year, but now the wedding seems to be overshadowing it a bit. My biggest thing has been that this will be my last Christmas with my family as just “their little girl,” the last time I’ll wake up in my parent’s house on Christmas morning (I’ve been on my own for 5 years, but I always spend Christmas Eve at their house) and so the emotions of all that PLUS the emotions of being married in 3 weeks have been a bit overwhelming!
Have you also found this to be true? Do you have any de-stress tips? lol
Are you doing a total New Year’s theme, or something more traditional? I want details! 🙂

My daughter is getting married at 2:30 on New Year’s day. She won’t be here for Christmas as she has been for every year since 1986. The new in laws are taking them skiing. Her fiance has never skied before so I just hope he comes back in one piece!
Her decor is very influenced by the venues. Both the church and reception sites are historic places in Galveston, and one will still have its Victorian decorations up for the holidays. So instead of fighting the greenery… she went with deep burgundies and whites with crystal accents. For example- in the front of the church she will have branches in urns with crystals hanging into rings of white hydrangeas. On the reception tables, most of the centerpieces will be silver candelabras with flower bowls on top with cascading burgundy and white flowers. We’re using black and white damask for accents on the silver chargers.
We had a full white cape made for her back in the summer, which is lined in the burgundy color.
