Why do people get married in the winter?

The risk of rain and wind can make the planning period extremely difficult. Costs are lower during the winter. Most couples get married in late spring, early autumn or sometime in the summer. A winter wedding is out of season.

So if you get married between December and early March, there will be fewer couples to compete with. In most parts of the country, the deep winter months (January, February and March) are the least popular months for weddings. In fact, only 9 per cent of weddings take place in winter, according to our survey. According to our data, 3 e weddings were held in December, 3n January and 3n February.

Don't let that deter you from booking your big day in winter. Your wedding photos will be absolutely gorgeous, and you'll have the opportunity to brainstorm cocktail and food ideas as you plan your wedding. Plus, your guests and wedding party are likely to have more availability during this time, as there are fewer weddings on their schedules. Winter is not considered peak wedding season, so your suppliers are likely to have more availability.

You can also reflect on your day with an evening cap on as the fire crackles - one of the great pleasures of winter weddings. Generally, the winter months, and the least popular are January-March, people want warm and colorful weddings. But there are several reasons why having a winter wedding can be better in terms of planning and budget. With endless possibilities of candles, fairy lights and fireworks to light up the night sky, winter weddings are a great excuse to have fun with lights.

One of the things Dezhda Dee Gaubert, owner of No Worries Event Planning, loves about winter weddings is the lack of stress from the elements, as they tend to be held indoors. Francesca DiSalvo-Follmer, owner of Pure Luxe Bride, says one of the advantages of winter weddings is the lack of humidity, which, if you're from the south, is a big plus. Wedding attire - Adding darker, richer colors as a main theme has a brilliant effect during the winter. If you're lucky enough to get a sprinkling of snow on your big day, the photographs will make your wedding look like a winter wonderland.
