If you and your partner have a favorite holiday you love to celebrate, tying the knot on that special day (or near it) can be a great idea. Holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are widely celebrated festive occasions, and picking a wedding date on or close to the holiday can make your special day even more meaningful. Our expert event planners explain the benefits of holiday weddings with tips and ideas to plan yours.
The Benefits of a Halloween Wedding
Many unique themes
Whether your theme is gothic-inspired, spellbound and whimsical, hauntingly beautiful, or a modern-day masquerade, Halloween presents endless ideas to inspire a sophisticated wedding theme that reflects you and your partner's personality in a uniquely memorable way.
Endless décor options
Once you and your partner pick a theme, there are plenty of décor options to bring it to life—and we're not just talking skeletons and jack-o-lanterns. Some of our favorite Halloween-turned-wedding decorations include unique candelabras, dramatic centerpieces with black dahlias, potion-themed cocktails, spooky stationery and signs, and dramatic wedding arches.
The Benefits of a Thanksgiving Wedding
Easier to get family together
Thanksgiving is a holiday that's all about family, and most travel to spend it together. If your guest list is predominantly family, a wedding on or right after Thanksgiving can be a convenient option since your loved ones may be traveling anyway.
Abundant autumn wedding themes
From white pumpkins and whimsical fall foliage to autumn harvests and rustic farmhouse vibes, there are many fun, festive ideas to inspire your Thanksgiving wedding theme and creative ways to bring it to life in a sophisticated way. Read more about popular fall wedding ideas.
The Benefits of a Christmas Wedding
Keep your Christmas wedding merry and bright with endless décor options to keep your special day romantic, festive, and uniquely yours. Whether it's glistening snowflakes, upscale silver and gold, or bells of holly and mistletoe, the possibilities are endless for a stylish and memorable Christmas wedding.

Off-season wedding discounts
A Christmas-themed wedding in December is usually considered off-season because it's a less popular date, which can mean discounts from vendors. You may be able to secure vendors and services for considerably less, including entertainment, flowers and décor, photography, and catering; venues may even offer discounted rates to book a wedding in December.
