We are also getting married Dec. 4th. Both of our families are from GA and so turn out that time of year wasnt a big issues for us. We are probably going to send out STDs in March or April so our out of town guest can plan. I wouldn’t worry about people coming or not for your Dec wedding. It’s a beautiful time of year and weddings are a great time to see family and bonus that it’s around the holidays. Do what ever works best for you and your fiance. It’s the only day that is truly about you two. Thats what we decided when we picked our date. The people you want to be there will find a way to make it work.

We are getting married on NYE and so far the responses are well received. My thoughts are those that can come, will and if not, though they will be missed, the party will go on.

We are also getting married on NYE and have gotten great responses. There have been a few grumbles about the date, but those have been coming from the people that will complain no matter what we choose!
If you don’t have a lot of people travelling, then I think that Dec 20 if totally fine. If you have a lot of people coming from Out of Town then you might have to be prepared for some declines.

@scrapbook:not really concerned, I sent my STDs out earlier this year and I know that those who want to be there will be there. And those that can’t won’t and I’m okay with that as well. My grandmother isn’t happy about the date that I chose but I’ve gotten nothing but good thoughts from everyone else, they are ecstatic and they know that I have always wanted a holiday wedding so it was either this one or Christmas lol! Besides many of them have talked about staying in New Orleans for NYE so it’s working out 😀

we’re excited about our Christmas Eve 2011 wedding. some were unhappy about xmas time with all the money that is spent, but since I had to do the wedding during school breaks, it was either summer or winter. and my puerto rican hair in the humidity does not work well at all! puerto ricans party hard on xmas eve. and it’s gonna be traditional xmas in puerto rico themed, with traditional puerto rican xmas music, and dancers, a 6 hour long reception which is really a kick-ass christmas party, and we can’t wait!!!

@bigturtles: thank you for your comment, sorry for the delayed response. Its true, the dates about the two of you. I think bride brain is a funny thing, it causes you to think “what will people think?” but i’ve never gone to a wedding where the bride/groom have asked if their date worked out ok for me….i guess sometimes the bride part takes over your brain…its always good to have someone remind you that its your day do what you want 🙂 thanks for the response

- Wedding: December 2014 - Black Rock Country Club
Hi there! New bee here (first post). My fiance and I are getting married 12/20/14 as well. I really struggled with the date because of how close to Christmas is, but for the venue we wanted, it had to be December in order to use one of the beautiful rooms at their facility. When it came down to it, I knew that everyone that was really important (immediate family and close friends) could make it, and resigned myself to the fact that some people just wouldn’t be able to come. For the most part, it’s been well received, with a few people who’ve grumbled a bit, but I’m glad we stuck with that date – winter weddings are beautiful 🙂
