  It was the only day left available at our venue before the summer heat sets in! We were hoping for mid April but now that we are planning I am glad b/c I don’t think I could wait a day longer!

We are getting married in wine country, where the off season is December to March.  March was the furthest away from the holidays and football season.  Our date, March 20, also turns out to be the first year of spring that year, which I think is pretty cool.  Spring is a time of new beginnings.  It also means our anniversary will never fall on Easter.  Additionally our, our first date anniversary turns out to be the first day of fall, so our wedding anniversary is kind of fitting.

my boyfriend’s job will be ending around then so we thought it would be a good transition time for us to take a break and get married. the upside was that it’s the off-season so we were able to get a better deal on our venue and photographer!  any other march brides found themselves able to negotiate better with vendors due to the off-season date?

The fall was out of the question for us — college football season. We knew we didn’t want a summer wedding (way, way too hot in GA) and decided that winter would be too hard to schedule with holidays and our large families. So, we were looking at late feb/march and our venue happened to be running a special! We snapped it up without looking back!

It’s the off-season and everything is cheaper.  Simple as that!

FMIL came to us this past April and wanted us to book a date for the wedding. The target date was October, but there were no available dates in October, there was one in August and then next was end of November. I had my heart set on October. FI wanted to wait until next January bc one of our dear friends is in Iraq this year and does not return until December. When we could not make it work during his R&R time, we decided to wait until he got back. My two most favorite times of the year are October and March because it is breezy but sunny and that seems to be the time things bloom here because it is not breathe sucking hot anymore. My roses bloom their best in October despite the color-changing and falling leaves. Of course by March thigns are starting anew and flowers are blooming again. We knew we wanted an outside ceremony because of the venue we chose so March/april seemed like a good choice. We ended up choosing March 13th bc our anniversary is on the 11th and the kids will be starting Spring Break that week. Whether we take a honeymoon somewhere far away or just a wine tour around Texas I wanted to make that week easy for my mom since she does not live too close to us. It would be difficult for her to get my two sons to school everyday.

You know, I hear a lot of people talk about scheduling their wedding around football season and so forth. That factor had not even occured to me. FI loves football and basketball but basketball is the only one I can really get in to. At least it will not be play off time.  I could totally see him and one of the groomsmen sitting in the corner with a handheld tv. Although with the team the Rockets are left with for the upcoming season, that may not be a problem!

We picked March because December was too cold and too many of our friends leave town; August was too far away; I’m studying for the Bar exam from May to July; March is my spring break and the only time I could imagine getting married of the dates remaining. 😉

If I wasn’t a student, we’d be getting married in the summer on the beach!

Ours is a double reason: off season pricing + 7th anniversary weekend. All of a sudden though, I’m worried about the sunset time fitting in with our outdoor ceremony…

We picked March because we met in the month of March.  We went with the last Saturday in March though, because there is a huge music festival (SXSW) in our city that encompasses the middle two weekends of the month.  We didn’t want our out-of-towners to have to deal with the influx of people in our city those two weekends.  Also, if we picked the last weekend in March vs. the first weekend in March, then we could be sure that our honeymoon would occur well after Spring Break and we hopefully won’t be surrounded by druken college students during our romantic beachy honeymoon.

There wer a couple of reasons for us:

1. It was the off-season

2. It coincided with my parent’s 30th wedding anniversary.

3. I’ve always liked March, with the newly budded trees and the promise of spring and life to come.

@CarrieAnne – Our wedding is the same day and I am also worried about the sunset time. What time are you starting your ceremony? We were thinking around 4 pm.

Congrats, SoyLatte! My fiance and I originally wanted to get married in January when we were first got engaged back in April. But my beautiful cousin also got engaged recently and she and her guy are getting married at the end of December. We wanted to give them some time to shine–and give my family a break too! So march seemed like a good time! On an admittedly random Thursday night. Laughing

I wanted October of this year, but March was the earliest it worked for both of our families and we want everyone to be there.
