What’s The Best Season For Your Wedding?


Choosing a season in which to have your wedding can be quite a challenge. All seasons have their pros and cons, and depending on your theme, some seasons might work better than others. Here’s a brief guide to help you decide.

 

Autumn

If you love warm tones of burnt orange, yellow hues, deep reds and golden accents, then autumn is the perfect season to have your wedding. The warmth of the colours of the turning leaves and the soft sunshine will result in striking photographs.

The temperatures are moderate with warm afternoons and cooler evenings. However, if you’re not a fan of cool weather or early sunsets, you’ll need to push to have an earlier ceremony. Some autumn nights can get surprisingly chilly enough to require blankets and heaters — this would need to be included in your budget.

Winter

Winter has its own kind of romance and the option of more dramatic outfits. With the cold, think a long-sleeved wedding dress, in cream velvet perhaps, a cosy venue with a fireplace and comfort food.

A great bonus with winter weddings is that it’s much easier to secure a venue as the warmer seasons tend to be more popular. A little birdie tells us some venues and suppliers offer off-season/winter specials, so you can save on the venue and splurge on something else. But if you don’t like the idea of a mostly indoor wedding and grey skies then it’s best to avoid a winter wedding.

Spring

With a spring wedding, you know there won’t be a shortage of beautiful multicoloured flowers for your bouquet and for the tables, and warm temperatures, perfect for a sleeveless wedding gown.

With spring you also get pre-season deals on wedding venues and some suppliers will still be offering off-season rates and continuing their winter deals. So you miss the gloomy weather and still spring into your marriage with some nifty savings. But there could be unpredictable rain, so be prepared with an indoor backup plan if you intend having the ceremony outside.

Summer

The summer season is the most popular as people love high temperatures and bright sunshine. Guests are likely to arrive in party mode and ready to celebrate your love and future together. Our summer is also near the festive season so you could even plan a wedding away or during the week – whichever suits you best.

The downside to summer weddings is that you have to book your venue way in advance. Also, the summer heat is not ideal for everyone so your budget must include ways to keep your guests cool and comfortable. Being peak season, keep an eye on your budget – everything is pricer and you don’t want to start your marriage on a broke note.

So that’s our input about the seasons and now all that’s left is to wish you a beautiful wedding day and many wonderful years of marriage!
