Merry Christmas!

Christmas, a time to celebrate Jesus, and to be reminded of the truly important things in life. Soon after, the beginning of a new year, a time for planning for the future.

For those of you who are planning a wedding, and have yet to set the date, there are many options and many things to consider when choosing the time of year.

Summer is the most popular time for weddings, when students are out of school, the weather is most reliable for outdoor weddings and other activities, and people are generally more able to travel and attend weddings. Spring, a time of promise and new beginnings, is also popular, and even Valentine's Day weddings for a little extra romance. But may I suggest considering a fall or winter wedding, as well. It can be very busy putting together a wedding near a holiday such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, but family and friends can combine the celebrations. The colors and decorations can be unique and beautiful. Also, many venues offer discounted prices for 'off-season' weddings, and even special perks during the less busy time of year.

Whatever the season, don't forget Debbie's Custom Sewing and Alterations for your bridal and bridesmaid alterations, or even a one-of-a-kind custom gown or veil.

Merry Christmas, and happy planning!
