We Are Thankful For Thanksgiving Weddings!

We love weddings, we love Thanksgiving, and we are huge fans of Thanksgiving weddings. November is all about family and those we are thankful for, so it’s the perfect time to gather everyone together to help you celebrate such a special day. Whether you are planning on getting married on Thanksgiving or around the holiday, we have a few great ideas to go with the Thanksgiving theme.

The Ceremony

November is when fall is starting to wind down. The leaves are changing colors and have fallen off the trees, the air is chilled, and everyone is starting to bundle up. It’s also a great time to take advantage of the perfect setting for a rustic-looking ceremony.

Reception Decorations

One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the warm feeling that surrounds the air. Give your guests the same feeling by making the reception a cozy and more intimate feeling. This is also a great time to put your creative skills to use and create some fabulous DIY decorations. Your guests will definitely feel thankful for all the time you put into it.
