Weddings can vary in price depending on both the time of the year, and the time of the week. If you plan on getting married in June on a Saturday, your wedding will be substantially more expensive than other times of the year. If you’re willing to get married at a less popular time, you’ll be able to spend more on other elements of your wedding, or even just save some money for a house or a honeymoon.
Your wedding can be just as special, if not more special due to the extra money you’ll have, at off-peak times. If you are looking to cut back on your wedding costs these months and days are the cheapest times to get married.
In the wedding industry the peak months are May to September and December. January to April, and October and November are the off-peak months to get married. The most drastic price difference will come from your venue or location but you can get discounts on everything from photographers to music. Make sure you ask your vendors about the cheapest times to get married to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
Saturday is the most expensive day to get married followed by Friday, then Sunday and Thursday. If you get married on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday you can cut costs significantly. The deduction in cost will vary from venue to venue so shop around to find the best deal for you.
While it won’t be as warm in off-peak months, and your wedding guests will have to take a couple days off work if you get married during the week, it will all be worth it when you see your wedding costs tumble. However, make sure you send out your save the dates in advance, so your guests can ensure they can make it.
