According to The Knot, the number of weddings that were hosted in 2022 was 2.6 million. While this statistic doesn’t share the breakdown between seasons, we can guess that many of those weddings happened in the summer than in the winter. As winter weddings start to become more popular, let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits that come with hosting your wedding then.
1. Your Wedding Will Stand Out
As beautiful as summer weddings are, there is something to be said for planning a wedding for the winter. If you choose a snowy locale, your wedding photos will look like they were taken in a winter wonderland. Winter light creates softer and dreamier photographs that will add to the magic. And, your decor, flowers, and venue will also make your wedding stand out from the crowd.
2. Some Expenses Might Be Lower
Depending on where you host your wedding, it might be significantly less expensive than if you were to choose a summer wedding. Vendors and venues typically have greater availability during these times, too. If you’re having a destination wedding, flights and accommodations could also be lower. There are many cost benefits that come with winter weddings. And, when vendors and venues have fewer weddings booked, they’ll have more time and energy to focus on your big day. If you want a special wedding but it’s also important for you to stick with your budget, consider a winter wedding.
3. It’s a Less Hectic Time of Year for Everyone
If you think back to last summer, can you remember how many weddings you were invited to or attended? Probably a lot! In fact, during the hectic summer season, it’s difficult for one wedding to stand out from the next. Winter weddings enjoy a bit more time in the spotlight and are often one of the only events on the calendar. You’ll have fewer distractions, too, which means that your planning process will likely be a lot less stressful. A wedding is a major milestone, so why not host yours when you and your guests can truly enjoy and appreciate it?
