Start The Year Off Right With Fantastic January Wedding …


After the hoopla of the holidays have passed and everyone has settled into the New Year can be a perfect time for your wedding. A fun or formal wedding might be just what friends and family need to pull them out of the winter doldrums.

Wedding invitations

Anything goes with you January wedding invitations. Draw on winter themes with crystal icicles or beautiful snowflakes. Your invitation should be the first hint at your theme, so pick something that you and your fiancé will love. Opt for a formal invitation with black, white and a touch of red or keep it whimsical and fun with snowmen.

You might want to consider getting your wedding invitations in the mail earlier rather than later. If your wedding is later in the month, you don’t want your invitation to get lost or caught up with the deluge of Christmas and holiday cards. This might be another reason to skip the winter themes and make your invitation stand out from the rest of the mail from this time of year.

Ceremony and reception

January offers many brides a chance to reduce costs and increase availability. Since a majority of venues and vendors are busiest during the summer months with brides and December with holiday parties, January can be a lull for most. Take advantage of lower off-season costs with vendors. And capitalize on lots of open weekends in January for your perfect – and efficient – wedding.

Your January wedding menu should include warm and hearty selections but steer clear of any holiday favorites. Your guests may have just enjoyed a month’s worth of holiday delights. Try a stuffed chicken breast for something different and delicious. Instead of a wedding cake, maybe cupcakes are in order?

At the bar, celebrate your wedding and brand New Year with champagne and champagne cocktails. Add the bubbly to orange juice or cranberry juice for delicious treats. Peach puree can make a tasty Bellini. And, of course, the classic champagne cocktail includes the sparkling wine, sugar and bitters. A champagne glass just might be the perfect touch for your wedding invitations and wedding favors, too. You’ll probably want to have some warm drinks handy, too. A coffee bar with flavored coffee, hot chocolate and cider and be a big hit in the cold weather.

Take the winter out of your January wedding

If you’re just plain sick of the winter, consider a totally different theme for your January wedding. A tropical theme will warm up your guests just fine. Add some Hawaiian décor and menu items and you’ll have a wedding luau in no-time. Or opt for a patriotic theme and celebrate like it’s the 4th of July. Turn your menu into a picnic and you’ll be feeling the summer warmth at your January wedding. Either of these themes can warm up your wedding invitations, too.

Take advantage of all that January has to offer and make your wedding memorable. Why fight with the June and July brides when you can have a great wedding and perhaps even save some money in the process.
