Wedding Seasons: Pro’s and Con’s
Hi there lovebirds!
Can you believe August is just around the corner??
That means that Fall weddings will soon be upon us…but with the weather still telling us it is very much summer, it has us thinking about ALL the wedding seasons.
With every season there are Pro’s and Con’s to getting married due to the time of year and what the weather has to offer.
Today we wanted to give you a little food for thought snippets when it comes to thinking about when you might want to have your wedding.
Take a look at just a handful of things to consider when picking the season for your big day!
Wedding Seasons: Pro’s and Con’s
- The Beautiful Weather — Fall is stunning and gorgeous. There is a reason it is the favorite peak season for weddings in Texas. The climate is lovely, the scenery is gorgeous, the beauty is like no other season!
- Less is More — Because Fall is such a beautiful season, you really don’t have to worry about decor as much. You can let your surroundings do the talking — or simply decorate with fall themed elements like pumpkins or lanterns.
- Holiday Timing — After Halloween, the rest of the year is surrounded and based off of Holidays. Thanksgiving and December based holidays keep everyone busy, so you may possibly need to consider this when it comes to guest availability.
- Indoor Options Might Be Hard to Come By — Due to the fact that Fall is a peak season, it may be hard to secure any venue — but specifically booking an indoor facility might be hard too. Be sure to plan ahead of time!
- Lower $$$ — You have to love the budget friendly seasons. Winter is a slower season for weddings in Texas so that most likely means that venues and vendors may have better pricing if you are wanting to stick to a budget.
- So Romantic — Winter means all the romantic things, candlelight, snuggles, warming beverages…it is all so romantic! This is a great element that goes hand in hand with weddings. What is better than a romance filled wedding?
- Baby, it is COLD Outside — The likelihood that a winter wedding is going to be chilly is high. Consider this when thinking about if a venue has warming options for guests and your attire too! You don’t want to feel icy come wedding day.
- Shorter Picture Windows — In the winter, the sun goes down SO early — that means that you are going to want to plan with your photographer about an earlier timeline for your big day. You don’t want to miss out on the golden hour shots!
- Nature Speaks For Itself — Spring is so gorgeous! From the blooming buds, to the abundance of greenery — this season gives you such a lovely natural background for your big day.
- Picture Perfection — the capabilities you have for pictures — timing, lighting, etc. are pure perfection.
- Competition is Stiff — Due to this being the MOST popular wedding season in Texas, there is a good chance that you might have to wait or really plan ahead for your wedding. Spring dates are the first to go so beware!
- Beware of Allergies — If you are a Texan, you know what we mean here. Pack some tissues and drink lots of water. The sneezing is bound to happen.
- Open Calendars — with Summer being a slower part of the year for weddings, venues and vendors most likely will have some great choices for weekend dates!
- Plenty of Picture Time — Summer means the longest days in the year, which means plenty of time for pictures! Soak it up and use it!
- It’s Hot In Here… — is it ever not hot in Texas?? Summer is surely warm so when thinking about getting married in this season be sure to consider ways you can keep your guests and yourself cool on the big day.
- Too Much Lighting — there is such thing as too much lighting, if you can believe it. During summer days the sun is usually out and brighter than ever. This can make it hard to capture darker images — so if you get married here be ready for bright pictures!
As you can see this is only a handful of things to consider when you are picking a good time to get married during the year.
There are so many things to consider, but hopefully this list will get your brain pumping and excited about what season you want to choose.
