If the thought of getting hitched during this time of the year is intimidating, don’t fret, we got you covered. We know planning a wedding can be overwhelming so we have decided to provide you with some tips to make it easy.

Here are tips you would need to have a successful December wedding. Have a look!

1.Date And Time

As you already know that December is a celebration month, you have to pick your day wedding wisely. When you’re picking the date for your wedding, make sure you pick a date/ dates before Christmas or after Christmas so people can make time to come.

2.Venue

The venue you choose is a priority because Christmas time is peak harmattan season. You have to choose an air-conditioned hall if your wedding is in the heat of the afternoon or an open space with lots of natural ventilation for evening and night occasions. You can even use an outdoor wedding which would be more beautiful.

3.Location

For a December wedding, choose a location that’s easy to navigate because of the celebration season. Your hometown might not be a good idea this season because transportation will be quite expensive than usual and the road will also be busy.

4.Your Wedding Outfits

Due to the harmattan weather which is quite confusing, choose your wedding dresses carefully so that you don’t roast or freeze in them. They have to be light enough for you to dance in, and you might want to reconsider having a long train to avoid gathering dust.

5.Foods

December is a festive season so everyone expects to eat rice but you can spice up the menu with some traditional meal that would excite your wedding guests. Also, food is usually expensive around that time, so plan accordingly for inflated prices. You can buy the dry food, (like grains), a few months before the wedding to stay ahead of the seasonal inflation.
