When it comes to choosing a wedding day, everyone has their personal preferences. And even though the most popular month to get married is June (accounting for 15% of all weddings), there are a number of benefits that are unique to winter weddings. Here are just a few advantages of getting married during the winter.
Easier To Plan
When comparing the advantages of an indoor and outdoor wedding, it’s important to keep temperature in mind. About 35% of weddings are now outdoor occasions, but with outdoor weddings come the necessary aspect of planning for the elements. The weather is unpredictable, and sometimes a standard wedding tent can’t hold up to heavy rain or winds. Not only that, but guests can easily get uncomfortable if it’s too hot or too cold. With winter weddings, however, you’ll be safely protected from the elements, and planning for the temperature is essentially a non-issue. Once you decide between wedding halls, the rest of the planning process becomes much easier.
More Availability For Wedding Venues
Since summer is the most popular season for weddings, many wedding locations have more open availability during the winter months. Plus, there are often discounts available based on timing and number of guests. Don’t be afraid to negotiate knowing that the competition isn’t nearly as fierce as it is during the popular summer months. Keep in mind that this also applies to other wedding-related vendors and services, from catering to apparel.
Free Seasonal Decor
Finally, it’s important to keep in mind that getting married during the winter often means that most of the wedding halls you’re interested in will have seasonal decor in place. These extra decorations come at no extra cost to you and can work wonders in adding to the ambiance and atmosphere of the entire event. This is a major advantage considering the fact that about 40% of spouses-to-be are looking for unusual venues that better reflect their personality. Not only that, but the photographs you take as keepsakes will be extra special due to the added decorations.
Ultimately, knowing the distinct advantages that come with getting married during the winter months can help you and your significant other get one step closer to planning your dream wedding.
