I just read someone’s post from a while ago about wanting a Christmas eve wedding and all of the people that didn’t agree with it well my wedding is Christmas eve. Every year for Christmas eve I host a beautiful dinner then we open gifts this year we are starting a little earlier in the day. My wedding will be in my home and after will be my same party and gift opening. All the same people friends and family that come every year will be invited to the wedding because those are all the most important people in my life. Our wedding invitation was hand written on our Christmas card and the service is being done by one of our best friends who also comes to our dinner anyway. I’m very excited about our upcoming day.

I think the concern expressed before was that it would take people away from their families.
If this gathering is the norm for you and your guests, that will not be an issue.
Have a wonderful wedding.

I think if it’s intimate and doesn’t differ from your tradition in other years it sounds wonderful! Personally, I probably would not attend a Christmas eve wedding unless it was immediate family or a best friend as I’d want to spend it with my family. It sounds like your guests would already be planning to spend it with you anyway. 🙂

I think there’s a difference with your wedding because it’s the people who plan to spend Christmas Eve with you anyway. If H’s cousin were to get married at his father’s house on Christmas Eve, it would be fine because we’d be there anyway. If someone else was getting married somewhere else we wouldn’t be able to make it. Especially if travel was involved.

That sounds absolutely lovely.
Your description of your wedding is the first time I’ve ever wanted to see a recap afterwards on this site.

I think your lovely, intimate wedding is outside the norm of what people get upset about. You are inviting all of the same people who will be with you that day anyways–no one is having to travel away from their family or loved ones to attend, it doesn’t appear you are having a big to-do where people would feel obligated to stay, and it doesn’t seem like any traditions are being disrupted. You are having an ideal Christmas eve wedding.

I always wanted a Christmas Eve wedding! It’s such a beautiful holiday. We chose late November for the convenience of our guests. But our dream was a Christmas Eve elopement.
Wishing you a lovely holiday wedding.
