10 Festive Ideas for a Holiday Wedding in Westchester

Uplift Photography

Jingle bells, lights, and mistletoe — what’s not to love? Here are our top 10 reasons to consider a Christmas wedding in Westchester.

Perhaps the one bad part of choosing a Christmas wedding is that you’re likely dooming yourselves to a lifetime of combination gifts from friends and relatives. That said, if you can get over this one small drawback, holiday season weddings can also feature some of the most beautifully festive moments, scenery, and kitschy-cute theme décor around. (Plus, you’ll never forget your anniversary!)

Here are some of our all-time favorite looks, accessories, place settings, party favors, and ceremony ideas to make your holiday wedding one your guests will never forget.

1. Set the tone before guests arrive with snowy Christmas tree invites.

2. Keep things festive and elegant with floor-length dresses in a rich holiday hue.
