Hi, Samantha! Normally, yes, you do save money during off-season months (November to March, depending on the venue). Many venues have packages for winter months specifically so how much you save is dependant on the venue; my fiancé and I originally planned to wed during the winter too, but decided against it as our venue is in a rural area.
Keep in mind, if you stick with seasonal items for food and florals, you will also save money there too.
As others have said, you can save a lot of money depending on the venue. I got married in March and saved a couple of thousand on some vendors (limo was 20% off, linens were 10% off), but our venue didn't offer anything, while another we were originally looking at did (they were giving 15% off, but it was farther out of town). I made a point to ask everyone though, as some won't offer it outright, but if you ask, they may be willing to give you a discount for the off-season.
The biggest bonus is that all the vendors are usually available, so you can have top pick of the best vendors. We had no problems booking anyone, and everyone was more than willing to work with us, which meant way less fuss and more choice!
You actually save quite a bit of money by getting married in the off months, it's also easier to find vendors who are free. I'm not sure of any exact amounts, plus it gives you a little more freedom cause Everything related to weddings gets jacked up in price once spring hits! We are saving money just buying wedding things in the off months lol
Were having our wedding in November. We’re saving $25 a plate plus tax and tip per person, our photography package was $1000 cheaper than it would have been in the regular season, saved $300 on the DJ, way more availability for florists and rental vehicles, and cheaper to travel if your honeymoon is going to require a flight.
I'm saving about $2500 by having my wedding in November. Some places give discounts for having it on a day other than a Saturday. Friday weddings are super popular now too, and you can get a discount in the on season sometimes
We are getting married in between Christmas and New Years. It’s basically a dead time for venues. So even thought we started looking at things only 8-9 months out, everywhere we have contacted is not only available but really wanting our business. The venue we decided on agreed to waive the rental fee they would have normally charged for our ceremony space.
You can can save some money but don’t expect to save a huge amount. The bonus for us was having no issues booking a venue, officiant, DJ etc. We picked this time strictly because all family members would be in town anyways, and we didn’t want to wait long to get married. The deals are just icing on the cake.
Most of the time yes, but I would check with your intended venue! We were going to have an off-season wedding but realized it was the same rate no matter what month/day so ended up scrapping that idea!
Yes. Yes you can. I will be having me wedding in October which is considered off season; so we have so far gotten a discount on the venue and I anticipate other vendors will offer something as well if they consider it a slow time of year.
