The Venue
-Its never too early to find your venue, as many couples are capitalizing on the last iconic date of the century that coincidentally falls on a Saturday.  Booking your venue well ahead of time may save you money with some venues, so bartering for a better price in the winter time may be an advantage to you.
-Destination weddings are another option as you can bundle your wedding and honeymoon all in one!
-If you arent looking to have a destination wedding, think of a nontraditional location- tenting a family members back yard or a local park makes for a fresh and exciting place most wouldnt think of. 
-Inquire with a hotel for a package deal they might be able to offer you- if there is another event happening around the time of your wedding you could tag team vendors and save money on tables, chairs, dishware, arrangements and decorations.
-If you are getting married in a church remember that the holiday season means the church is decorating for its Christmas services and they might allow you to utilize their decorations for your wedding.
Invitations and Save The Dates
-After youve chosen your venue, your next step is to inform everyone about the exciting party you are planning to celebrate you and your fianc! Inform your guests early so they can save the date. 
-Festive colors for December are reds, greens and neutral colors like champagne, silver and golds.
-Davids Bridal has a plethora of invitations that start at $60.00 for 100 invitations and can be ordered in exclusive DB colors for great coordination at 
Food and Beverages
-To keep your wedding festive for the season, incorporate holiday food such as candy canes, peppermints, hot chocolate, teas, egg nog and sparkling wine- all favorites to celebrate a time of giving. 
-If youre looking to keep your fare casual, think of having an appetizer party instead of a seated meal. This makes for a fun holiday event allowing everyone to mingle.
Table Settings and Decorations
-Festive colors for the season are apple red, emerald, golds, silvers and champagne hues and are perfect for the holiday season.
-If youre not in love with the seasonal flowers of December, utilize holly, pine cones and berries that are festive and reminiscent of the giving season.  These decorations can be found at the grocery store, craft stores AND outside if you want to go DIY!
-Craft stores have artificial foliage you can use for your wedding and re-use in your home, or for another event.
-Ribbons, stars, chunky candles, beads, ornaments, wrapped boxes and Christmas lights are other great decorating items that make fun centerpieces and dcor for your venue.
-For a cute centerpiece fill a vase with wrapped metal boxes, reminiscent of the giving season!
Party Favors
