okay so we have picked 12/13/14 as our date and have the church and a few venue possibilities in mind already. however, the church may not be available and a some of the venues are already booked. we love the date but if we have to change it, it would be 12/20/14.
our concern is the fact that it is so close to christmas. would our guests even show up? do they feel that its too close to christmas that they wont want to go to a wedding? or maybe they’re wanting to party for the holidays and will go?
i guess we just need to know that a 12/20 date wont be such a bad idea.

@omglauren: My parents were married on 12/20 and my mom says she wishes they’d picked another time of year. Their wedding was well attended (though most people were in town so it was very convenient), but their anniversary always gets swallowed up in Christmas. I think it’ll probably be fine. Some people may have started their Christmas vacations already (and be away), but many others probably won’t be. Good luck!

my parents’ anniversary is 12/29. i know that a lot of times, their anniversary goes unnoticed because it’s between christmas and new year’s.
i think the 20th would have the same problem. i’m sure the wedding itself would probably not be a problem. but just think about out of town guests, especially those who may also have to travel for the holidays. but if you like the date, go for it. just remember that people may forget your anniversary.

I think attendance would be fine as long as the guests are in town. But I would think that those needing to travel to be there might not make it so close to the holidays.

Hello! My wedding date is 12/31/14 and our guests, at least so far, have been really excited about having fun plans for NYE. Just a suggestion!
