Every summer and fall, wedding bells are sounding, love is in the air, and everyone’s mailbox is flooded with invitations from close friends and family.
These seasons are the prime time couples opt to get married. You may be thinking about getting hitched during this time too. You want nothing more than a wedding of your dreams, so what better time to host one?
The problem is many couples get married around the summer and fall months, which means you’ll be competing with a lot of people for the best dates, venues, caterers, photographers, and more. This type of competition could lead to a great deal of frustration, and no one should be stressed out when planning their big day.
While it’s not the favored option, any time between November and May is a great time to say “I do.” We’ve helped numerous couples plan their big day and have seen the benefits of them opting for a wedding during a different time of year.
Here are a few reasons why an off-season wedding might be the better option for you:
You have the perfect venue, caterer, photographer, florist, and stylist in mind for your big day, but due to fierce competition, your dream services are booked solid. Having a wedding during the off-season months helps you avoid this disappointing obstacle. Fewer people will be getting married in winter, so you have higher chances of securing the services you want.
During the off-season months, you have the opportunity to get cheaper rates. Many venues offer discounted prices during the winter months, which could help you snag your dream location at a fraction of the cost. You can also get better honeymoon rates!
Less Guest Conflict
Scheduling conflicts are more likely to happen in the summer and fall. Not only are people invited to several weddings, but they are also planning vacations, family reunions, and other personal trips. Hosting your wedding during the off-season increases your chances of having more guests RSVP “Yes” to your invitations.
Winter Wonderland Wedding
Winter weddings indeed mean colder weather, but winter nuptials could create the opportunity for a very romantic event if you plan it right. Consider an outdoor ceremony with fresh snowfall, complete with a candlelight reception and guests contentedly sipping mulled wine.
Off-season doesn’t equal a cold day with no attendees. Getting married during this time will help you avoid a stressful planning experience and enjoy a successful wedding you can remember for years to come.
