With summer official over, we are starting to move into cooler temperatures (bye bye beach weather). Many people are hesitant about getting married during the winter months, so I thought I would share 3 reasons to get married in the winter!!

Many people fear having a winter wedding because of the cold weather and short days, but there are some advantages to having your wedding during winter season!!

The biggest one for me are the DISCOUNTS!!  With spring and fall being the busiest times for weddings there is an increase in price because of supply and demand for vendors.  Because vendors are less busy in the winter, they are willing to offer GREAT discounts.  There are savings seen in venues, photographers, florist and even honeymoons. It’s typically cheaper to travel in the winter because it is a slow season (except around the holidays)!!

The second bonus of having a winter wedding is the AVAILABILITY of venues and vendors.  Many vendors allow brides to book a year in advance.  If you have your heart set on a particular vendor, you have to book early. There are also issues at the dress stores. Sometimes, you have to get alternations done 3 months before the wedding because the seamstress is so busy, but in the winter, the dress store can accommodate your schedule and needs.

And last but certainly not less is the SNOW.  Many brides fear snow on their wedding day, but it can a beautiful plus. Translation: you will have stunning pictures and a romantic setting. Just make sure you have a backup plan in case of heavy snow. Most venues have a cancellation or postponement policy, so make sure you ask before signing contracts. No matter what season you choose, your wedding will be beautiful. When making important decisions about your wedding, always consider your budget, style and vision, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Some of the most beautiful weddings are the ones that take risks. Translation: horse and carriage in the snow or February beach wedding.
