Have you always dreamed of a romantic Christmas wedding? Perhaps you want to be a summer bride. No matter what you’ve always pictured for your wedding date, a little research can help you choose the best (and most cost-efficient wedding date) for you!
Most Inexpensive Months
If you’re on a budget, you might want to consider going with one of the least popular months, as they are typically the most inexpensive months. January, March, April and November are the least popular wedding months and because of less demand for vendors, you can probably get a great deal!
Most Expensive Months
The most expensive months will be December and February. Because of Christmas and Valentine’s Day, there is a lot of demand on different vendors; venues, cake bakers and decorators, etc. So if your heart is set on a Valentine’s Day wedding, be prepared to pay. June and September will also be expensive, because these are the most popular wedding months.
Bad Times for a Wedding
Choosing a wedding date that falls around major holidays, tax days, and other important days can be a bad idea. People are typically busy around these times, and may not be able to make it to the wedding. If they do make it, they will be more stressed out than usual, so it’s best to avoid those times.
Other Important Tips
Remember that if you’re on a budget, breakfast is the least expensive meal of the day. Also, planning to have the reception between 2 and 4pm can save you some money because people aren’t as hungry as other times of the day!
