December Weddings have been become more popular in recent years. Lots of people love Christmas and many venues are decorated for the festive season which might save couples some money on decoration and create an instant theme. It’s the season for holly and mistletoe which can create a very distinctive look.

Temperature wise ~ December daytime temperatures will generally reach highs of around 9°C that’s about 48°F. At night the average minimum temperature drops down to around 5°C, that’s 41°F.
In recent times the highest recorded temperature in December has been 15°C that’s 59°F, with the lowest recorded temperature -8°C, about 18°F.
Rainfall ~ The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 78 mm, that’s 3 inches. Throughout the month you can expect to see rain or drizzle falling on 19 days of the month, with snow falling on 1 days.
Sunshine ~ expect the sun to shine for an average of 4 hours per day.
So, a possibility of snow which may appeal, but don’t forget extreme weather conditions (OK, I know we rarely get more than a light dusting down here) can cause travel disruption and give other problems. Winter weddings again tend to be very cosy affairs with mulled wine, the heating on full and open fires – keep everyone snug and warm and they won’t want to leave!
Probably the most popular date for December Weddings is the 31st, New Years Eve, and I’ve done a couple in recent years. New Years Eve is a great day for a party however it does come with a new set of challenges…
Some of your friends and family may have somewhere else that they traditionally go.
The party will go on later/longer – I’d suggest until 1am and possibly later
Some suppliers will charge more for New Years Eve
Recently I’ve noticed an increase in enquiries for the dates between Christmas and the New Year where the country seems to go into a state of limbo – many people are on holiday and it’s a good time to fit in another celebration.
