I got married in December and we didn’t have any issues at all. We also had a normal decline rate and almost all of our OOT’ers showed up too.

Our only concern was if there was going to be a blizzard.  Otherwise, we loved our early December wedding.  We didn’t want to be too close to Christmas either, so we chose the first Saturday.

My best friends got married on December 10th. It was beautiful!

It would have been OK in their case if it snowed, because 99% of the guests were local. If there had been a major snowstorm – some people may not have made it – but – weather happens.  Torrential rain storms can be just as disruptive. 

Are a lot of your very important guests from out of town?

We got married the week before Christmas. It wasn’t a big deal. Our out of town and country guests didn’t have any issues coming. The only negative I would say is that we paid peak travel time prices for our honeymoon the following week.

@sherryberry:  at least half our guest will be outof towners.. they are putting $$ together and renting a bus that will bring them up.. it will end up being cheaper on gas and they dont have to drive or worry about thier cars!
