One of the first decisions you need to make is which season to get married in. I have put a few of the benefits to each season to help you.
Spring is a great time for flowers! Almost every flower you want for your wedding is in season and you can choose any colour you want. You have a lot of freedom when it comes to the fashion for the day as it is never too hot for evening/ball gowns and tuxedos or too cold for short dresses and open shirts. You can also have your wedding indoors or outdoors.
Autumn weddings are filled with colour the warm oranges and reds are so cosy and romantic. The weather is a bit cooler and so outdoor weddings are less advisable although some brides and grooms choose the wedding ceremony outside and the reception inside. For many hotels autumn is not high season giving a great financial benefit for the budget conscious bride.
This is not the most popular season for weddings, but it has become more popular in the last 3 years causing many hotels to include December and January as high season. One thing that you have to remember about a winter wedding is that it is going to be cold and you may have to deal with the snow and wet weather and heating do not assume these will be provided. During the winter, some flowers that you want may not be in season but many veues are decorated for Christmas cutting your decorating costs.
Summer weddings are more popular because you can choose from many different dress styles and you could have the wedding outdoors or indoors. It offers the best chance of good weather which is very important for photographs. Also the wind is lower and the sky is clearer which means sky lanterns and fireworks are on the cards.
Another thing to remember is that if you have a Sunday Wedding before a bank holiday Monday you can save money on the Saturday rate but guests will not have to book time off work.
