Anyone who has planned or is in the process of planning a wedding will know how stressful the process can be. Deciding on the right time, venue, location, dress, decorations – everything has to be perfect. Trying to make your mind up when you’re so swamped with choices and then still having to decide on what you really want for the occasion can be really tiring.
What’s worse is that once you’ve made your decisions, you’re likely to find a venue unavailable for the day you want, a guest can’t make the date, or one of many other issues that could arise randomly. A lot of people are also more likely to postpone their wedding until spring or summer – but here’s why a winter wedding can be just as cool!
More Venues, Better Rates
One of the most obvious reasons for choosing to have your wedding in winter is that it’s a lot cheaper to find great venues than it is in summer or spring. In most cases, you can find the exact same location for around a quarter of the price that you would pay for it in hotter months, simply because fewer people are likely to host their weddings in winter. This allows you to spend more on the things that matter and less on the venue alone.
Cheaper Flights & Accommodation
Being able to save money on the venue is one thing, but being able to save enough cash to pay for some of your guests’ flights or accommodation is amazing! If there’s one way to make your wedding more memorable, try and cover as many of your guests’ costs as possible. It’ll be something that they talk about for years!
Something Out Of The Ordinary
Besides the fact that you’ll be able to save so much money, you’ll also be able to have a wedding that is definitely out of the ordinary. Think Frozen here as you’ll be able to say your vows in a winter wonderland of snow-covered trees and take photos with light snowfall that’ll look oh-so-romantic! Definitely a good idea if you want your wedding to stand out from your friends’!
