What Are The Pros And Cons Of Getting Married In Each Season?
With this in mind, we’ve found the pros and cons for getting married in each season, to help you decide which is perfect for you and your partner. But no matter what season you get married in, your wedding will be spectacular and beautiful!
Winter: December to February
- Winter is not busy for wedding venues. This means the cost of getting married could be a lot cheaper.
- A lot of couples choose the spring or summer season for the wedding. But your wedding will stand out and give your guests something to look forward to in the long winter months.
- You’ll need to take the holiday season into consideration. With office work parties and Christmas presents to buy, will your guests have the budget to attend?
- We all know the weather is unpredictable at the best of times, let alone in winter! Keep in mind that this could make travel difficult for some guests.
Spring: March to May
- Spring is the best season for beautiful, fresh flowers! Many stunning flowers will be available and in season, which means you may be able to get them at a lower price.
- This season marks the start of “wedding season”.
- If you are planning an outdoor ceremony or reception, now is the time to think if guests have any allergies.
- The weather can, of course, be unpredictable!
- Be aware of school holidays, Easter, graduations…we don’t want your big day to clash with anything.
Summer: June to August
- Now is the time when people are going to be using up their holidays at work. So chances are, people will tend to be more flexible around this time of the year.
- This is an amazing time of year for getting married in terms of outdoor ceremonies and receptions. The possibilities are endless!
- Summer is known as the peak of wedding season for a reason! Guests may have to juggle numerous weddings in a short period of time. So they might not be able to attend.
- Guests may have planned family trips which they cannot change.
- You do run the risk of having a heatwave on your big day, or alternatively a summer storm.
Autumn: September to November
- As autumn is not as popular as summer, wedding suppliers may be more flexible with their time. This could be the same for wedding guests too.
- Autumn is a beautiful time of year!
- The food options allow for something a little different. Think warm apple cider, soup, and doughnuts…
- Due to school holidays, some guests might find it difficult to find childcare for their kids.
- Keep in mind that it gets dark a lot earlier at this time of the year. You may need to plan your ceremony a few hours earlier to ensure you have daylight for your wedding photos.
