Commemorate Your Winter Wedding with a Festive Marriage Certificate

Published Wednesday, Nov. 1st, 2023

Deck the halls with winter wedding certificates!

Introducing three new decorative marriage certificates to celebrate a merry winter wedding! 


Winter weddings are the perfect chance to cozy up with friends and family, sip on spiced cider in the glow of candlelight, and say ‘I do’ to lasting love. 


Although the winter months of December, January, and February are considered the slow season for marriage ceremonies, this is often the best time of year to get married! In addition to the stunning natural beauty, there’s less humidity, better decorations, cheaper venue dates, and all the egg nog, hot toddies, and buttered rums you can dream of!
