Budget-Friendly-But-Fabulous Venues, Decorations, and Fashions Make Winter Weddings a Win!
We know all of you newly-engaged ladies are in engagement bliss, getting ready to start planning and make those Pinterest boards come to life! Well, there is not much you can plan without setting a wedding date. So, we have compiled our favorite reasons to have a winter wedding for you, in hopes of helping you plan and protecting your budget!
1. OFF SEASON
This is the first and best reason because you can save thousands by choosing to have your wedding during the off-season (December – March). The winter months are normally a low season for venues, which is good news for your budget because the cost per head will be lower than what they would be in June or September. Give yourself a chance to splurge in areas that wouldn’t be possible during those peak season (May-September) or keep yourself way under budget.
Winter greens are the perfect solution to for winter wedding decor! Because greens are so easily available at this time, they are inexpensive! Garlands, wreaths, centerpieces.. you can do it all! The deep green color can be used as a stand-alone or matched with the accent color of your choosing.
This may be one of the most romantic decor aspects ever. Sure string lights can be used year-round for weddings, but there isn’t a time where they are more appropriate than in the winter! You can also take advantage of the outdoor areas with their trees light up for some of your wedding pictures.
