If the photo above looks familiar, that’s because it is. Hint: think Bridesmaids, the movie. We love couples who have fun with their photography! While most couples who choose Christmastime for their weddings are doing so because they love the holiday, Chris and Sarah chose December because they wanted to do something different.
“Our attendants wore green (a pale green so it wasn’t TOO Christmas-y!) and our flowers were red,” Sarah said. Among other Christmas touches, guests received small stockings to stuff at the couple’s candy table, ornaments to decorate the table and Christmas-themed stickers on the place cards.
“Everything went perfectly,” Sarah said. “Because we didn’t spend a lot of time on any one detail, there was nothing really to go wrong.” And the couple’s favorite detail of the wedding? “Our Homer and Marge cake topper! The cake was gorgeous and so perfectly us.”
For a couple who first met in sixth grade, this long awaited moment was the perfect day. Their advice to other couples – take your time. “Decide what’s important to you and spend your time and money on that,” Sarah says. “Talk to your future spouse beforehand to decide what is the most important to both of you. Each of us were able to get exactly what was important to us because we communicated what we wanted before we tried to make decisions.”
