Winter is the perfect season for a wedding! Yet often overlooked by couples, especially in New England. Here are some of the reasons you should consider winter for your special day:
The true magic of the holiday season lies in the décor. Stores, churches and venues put a significant amount of thought, time and expense into winter/holiday décor to make their establishment look their very best. You can save thousands of dollars on décor, greenery and even flowers by booking a venue that decorates elegantly during the holidays. Not to mention savings on a decorator to set up and break down the event on your big day!
Choice of Dates and Vendors:
During the busy wedding season, couples are often shocked to learn their dream date was booked months or even years in advance by another couple. The competition for prime season Saturdays can be heartbreaking and frustrating for couples when they begin planning. By choosing an off-peak season in most cases you will get your choice of venues and vendors on your desired date! The wedding planning process is stressful enough and the security of having a venue that you love locked down allows you to be able to get down to the fun part, planning your dream wedding!
Are you on a tight budget or just a negotiator by nature? This is the BEST season to score a deal and receive the lowest rates offered. Host an absolutely spectacular blowout with all the details you dreamed of without breaking the bank! Savings like this can let you indulge in lavish details such as stylish and stunning faux fur wraps for the bride and her bridal party and velvet tux jackets for the groom/groomsmen or upgrading your bar, food and linen to create a truly unique experience for you and your guests.
Convenience for Friends and Family:
Home for the holidays? Tis the season for friends and family to return home and gather for celebrations, especially for those that live far apart from their loved ones. Everyone will appreciate the ease of combining a trip home with celebrating your special day. Happy relaxed guests, in a festive mood, make for the most fun at parties and create stunning photographs that you will remember for years to come.
Last, but certainly not least, the honeymoon destination. Do you and your boo dream of white sandy beaches and tropical cocktails? Prime wedding season isn’t the ideal time for an exotic getaway. Some of the most popular vacation destinations are at their best during winter months. Wave goodbye to your guests and say hello to your bathing suit and sandals while you jet off for some romantic time to unwind with your spouse.
Everyone will remember a dramatic, intimate winter wedding!
