The Benefits of a Thanksgiving Wedding

by Lotoya Vongrechin on November 21, 2012

I’ve always thought that late-fall is a beautiful season in which to say “I do.” And because weddings begin to taper off in the first weeks of November, I believe there are many ways brides and grooms can benefit from a Thanksgiving wedding:

Access to family and friends. Family and friends will already be home for the holiday, so maximize this opportunity. Send out save the date cards well in advance, which will allow people to make plans around your wedding.

Premium services for off-peak prices.  During peak wedding season vendors are in demand—and the prices reflect that. During off-peak season you can receive these same services at deeply discounted rates. In some cases you can name your price and get exactly what you want for your wedding.

Top-rated venue and vendor availability. If you want to be a June bride and you have your heart set on a popular venue or vendors in your area, you must book 18 to 24 months in advance. When you pick a date during the slow season, you can book these same vendors just 4 to 6 months in advance.

No need for an outdoor contingency plan. As the wedding season cools down, so does the weather. The beauty of having a wedding during the fall/winter months is everything is indoors. You don’t have to have a Plan B in case of rain, humidity or sweltering heat.

I hope these advantages inspire you to consider holding your wedding during the off-season. You’ll save money, have the opportunity to get what you want and deserve, and get to use the rich and fabulous fall color palette as well! Let us know how we can help.
