Get Inspired: Twas The Night Before Christmas

Remember as a child it was so hard to fall asleep on the night before Christmas because you were so excited for the festivites of the next day? Who are we kidding, we are still that way. But, that same eager anticipation also happens on the night before your wedding day. Sure, instead of visions of sugarplums you may be having visions of wedding cake, but you get the idea. We think a Christmas themed wedding is such a lovely idea. After all, decorations are easy to find, and who doesn't love the twinkling lights, captivating aromas and cheerful sounds of the season?
