One of the most important parts of planning your wedding is of course setting a date! Do you want to get married surrounded by a soft sheet of snow, or maybe sinking your toes in the sand on the beach? Whichever season you’re leaning towards to celebrate your big day, be sure to know some pros and cons of each.
There’s nothing more romantic than a cozy atmosphere surrounded by a fresh sheet of snow, a fireplace, and your loved ones in the winter months!
Since winter is considered the slow season for weddings, you have a better chance of finding discounts on venues!
You get to have all the fun in creating your menu filled with comfort foods to keep your guests toasty warm!
With winter comes snow, and unpredictable snow storms could prevent guests from being able to attend.
People are saving money for the countless winter holidays, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, and Valentine’s Day.
Flowers are blooming, trees are slowing getting back their greenery. Have fun matching your wedding colors with the natural colors of spring surrounding you!
Weather Warming Up
Everyone loves when the weather starts to warm up, especially after a chilly winter season! It’s a great time to have an outdoor ceremony where guests won’t be too hot or too cold!
Peak Wedding Season
Spring time is a very popular season to get married. Venues may be booked, and it is hard to compete with others for that prime wedding date!
Spring is the peak season for allergies, which means itchy eyes and runny noses!
If you decided upon an outdoor wedding, keep in mind that April showers bring May flowers… and could potentially wash out your venue.
Long days, longer sunlight, and warm nights call for great outdoor weddings for you and your guests to enjoy!
Garden theme, rustic theme, beach theme, you name it, you got it! Aside from a wintery wedding, the themes that you can pull off are endless!
Although we can’t wait for the warm weather to arrive, there’s always the risk of getting married on the same day the weather is in the 90s. Be prepared to offer some shade for your guests!
Another risk is having your wedding weekend land right in the middle of someone else’s vacation week. Summer is a very popular time for families to take vacations!
Just like spring, the weather is not too hot and not too cold!
Use nature to your advantage with decorations! Fall is the perfect season to save money in the decoration department since the foliage is as beautiful as it comes!
People are starting to save money for the upcoming holidays in the winter season, which means they are more likely to have a tight budget (and you also might be tight on your budget for the same reason)!
