What You Need To Know:

YULETIDE THE KNOT is a Christmas romance on UPtv about a wedding planner named Rachel. Her mother’s death makes Christmas traditions difficult for Rachel, but Rachel accepts a last-minute wedding planned for Christmas Day. She hopes the wedding will take her mind off her mother’s absence. However, Rachel discovers she must work with an old boyfriend friend on the planning. Eventually, Rachel must decide whether to keep putting up walls against romance and her family or celebrate Christmas with joy and courage.

YULETIDE THE KNOT is excellent, well-written and acted. It puts a strong stress on family. The movie repeatedly says a true family isn’t judged just by looking, but also by the family’s heart for one another.

Also, the family members sometimes keep secrets or are unloving toward one another, but the movie portrays this as bad.

Ultimately, YULETIDE THE KNOT is a fun, heartwarming, uplifting movie with little to no objectionable content.

More Detail:

YULETIDE THE KNOT is a Christmas romance on UPtv about a wedding planner who accepts a last-minute wedding of a couple who want to get married on Christmas Day, to distract herself from her adoptive mother’s death. YULETIDE THE KNOT is an excellent, uplifting, fun Christmas romance that strongly stresses the importance of family, but MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children because of some minor family problems.

After the death of her adoptive mother, Rachel is grateful for anything to distract her from the Christmas season, even if that means putting up walls to her own father and two sisters. At Thanksgiving, Rachel is surprised to find out that her adoptive father has started dating someone else.

Rachel’s adoptive mother, Grandma Rose, used to lead a Christmas lighting service for the whole town. However, Rachel has pushed back on doing it without her mother to lead it. Thankful for an excuse not to think about her mother, she begins planning the wedding for Christmas day.

However, when she discovers that she must work with the former love of her life, Logan, emotions are stirred once again. At first, Rachel is able to keep her walls up, but soon her family and Logan begin to break down those walls.

Will Rachel be vulnerable to possible love and joy this Christmas season? Or will dwelling on past hurt keep her shut off from the people she loves most?

YULETIDE THE KNOT is an excellent, well-written and acted Christmas romance from UPtv. There are also three lovely new Christmas songs in the movie. Also, the movie places a strong stress on family throughout the story. For example, it’s stated and repeated later that a true family isn’t seen just by looking, but also seen by looking at the heart. This is also shown by several heartwarming scenes during the movie’s plot and character development. YULETIDE THE KNOT also promotes the idea that people need to deal with the past by embracing the good memories and by embracing the love of the present blessings life has to offer.

That said, the family’s view of the reason for the season is solely the love they share together as a family. So, there’s no overt mention of Jesus in YULETIDE THE KNOT. Also, the family members sometimes keep secrets or are unloving toward one another, but the movie portrays this as a bad thing. Finally, a small part of a wedding does take place at the end, but there’s nothing religious about the brief scene. Even so, however, YULETIDE THE KNOT is a fun, heartwarming and uplifting romance with little to no objectionable content.
