Ang bilis ng panahon, Bes! December na naman!
Do you know that many people get married in this month, particularly in the Philippines? Well, it makes a lot of sense. In our culture, we usually associate December to reunions. It is when family and friends finally come home to meet everyone. Therefore, it’s also a great time to celebrate an occasion like wedding.
Budget is also a consideration. Since we Pinoys love Christmas and we really look forward to it, it’s just normal for us to also save up for the holidays and all the happenings. For those working, it is also the time for the much-awaited 13th month pay, plus all the other types of bonuses they are entitled to. In short, maraming mayaman ‘pag malapit na ang Pasko.
With all this, we know that you can’t help but feel excited, especially if you actually have wedding plans for this month. For those who are planning to also have a December wedding in the years to come or are still looking for more ideas to complement their existing plans this December, here are some ideas Christmas-themed wedding details you can draw inspiration from:
There are lots of things you can do to highlight the festivities during the season even in your wedding centerpieces. Besides using vivid shades of red and green, which never fail when it comes to evoking Christmas feelings, you may also play with silver and gold, which are both timeless. And yes, don’t hesitate to also play with some Christmas lights for added drama.
If you think you can’t put a Christmas twist on a wedding cake without compromising its elegance, well, think again. Remember that this is actually possible, although you still need to be more careful when deciding on its overall look. Among the safest bets would be choosing snow as part of your theme. Yes, let it snow! But of course, you may also use fool-proof colors like red, green, silver, and gold.

Wedding Invites and Save-the-Date Cards
