Even though we have four years of holiday traditions already under our belts, this first Christmas with my husband as a married couple feels different. While our normal traditions will remain, I want to showcase our newlywed status during this special time of year. These five ideas are the perfect way to celebrate your recent nuptials and deck those newlywed halls!
