The busiest time for weddings is spring and fall because of the cool yet warm temperatures. Summer also has its fair share of weddings, but there is another season that is perfect for your big day — winter. Most people fear winter because of the cold weather and short days, but here are three reasons why a winter wedding may be perfect for you.
Because vendors are less busy in the winter, they may be willing to offer discounts. Brides who get married in the winter report savings on the venue, photographer, florist, and a Chicago Wedding DJ. You can also get great savings on your honeymoon. It is typically cheaper to travel in the winter because it is the slow season (unless you are getting married near the holidays). You can save money on the flight, hotel, and even excursions.
Many vendors start booking up about a year ahead of time. 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 alterations done three months before the wedding because the seamstress is so busy, but in the winter, the dress store can accommodate your schedule and needs.
Many brides fear snow on their wedding day, but it can a beautiful plus. Translation: you will have stunning pictures and a romantic setting. Check out the photos below for inspiration. 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.
