This is a question that I get extremely often. To be frank, there is no single way to answer it. It really all comes down to finances and preference.


Winter weddings provide a great scenery if you live in a location where it snows quite a bit. The photos turn out amazing with a natural wintery background. Another benefit is that generally banquet halls located in the mid-west offer discounts during the winter season due to a limited about of bookings. So if you’re on a budget, it may be a good idea to get married in the winter and not only save some money but also enjoy a great scenery, just be sure to dress warm!


On the contrary, spring and summer offer a wide variety of possibilities that you can do. For one, you can have your wedding ceremony out doors and enjoy beautiful sunny weather. Pictures are still going to turn out great if you’re in to summer colors and amazing flowers (I still think winter scenery is better for pictures). Regardless, the problem lies that most banquets are booked during this season and pricing increase by quite a bit. The way the banquets see it is if you don’t book your date, there is for sure going to be another couple that will due to an enormous amount of people getting married during this time.

So again, it really depends on what you’re looking for. Personally, I’ve always loved winter weddings, especially during the holidays. Everyone is in the holiday spirit, and you get to save money. In the end, it comes down to what you prefer on your special. After all, it is YOUR day.
