In December/this December

My brother is getting married in December this year.
My brother is getting married this December.
Is "this December" idiomatically fine in the second sentence? And which of the above-mentioned contexts is more common when it comes to the usage of "in December" and "this December"?
Thanks!

    Both your sentences are correct but I think "My brother is getting married in December" is sufficient as one would assume that you mean this year. If it were next year one would say "next December."
