Why plan a winter wedding?
As a wedding vendor I know that the busiest months for marriage are May through September and you can be sure that couples book the vendors they want up to a year in advance. Couples often miss out on the perfect venue or wedding photographer or even the most popular DJ because the summer months fill up so quickly. So, why not plan a winter wedding?
Here are a few reasons you might want to consider holding off until the snow flies!
~ A winter wedding provides a magical feel of "winter wonderland"!
~ Guests schedules are less busy during the winter months because most people plan family vacations throughout the warmer season. You are sure to see a lot more RSVP's from your guest list!
~ The snow and dreary backdrops are surprisingly beneficial when planning out your color scheme as they pretty much go with anything. You can add as much contrast as you like without worrying about whether or not your wedding colors will clash with the freshly mowed green grass.
~ If you are a holiday fanatic then you have the option of planning for a Christmas or New Year's themed wedding
~ Most of all: Winter weddings can be much lighter on the pocket book and your budget as most vendors offer discounts during the slower seasons! (That's reason enough right there!)
