    @Jewelieee:  Wait… I’m confused… Do people really judge for having a wedding during the winter? I WISH that we could have a true winter wedding! Unfortunately, Winter isn’t a real season in Florida. : (

    I am having a January wedding (although I live in Los Angeles).  Plenty of people choose teh winter wonderland theme of a wedding, so I really don’t think anyone will assume you are doing winter because you are cheap.  I think it can be quite beautiful!

    Not at all! The only time I would be turned off by it is if you had it outside and made everyone sit out there for a 30 minute ceremony. I hate the cold- HATE it, so I would decline that in a heartbeat lol.

    @Jewelieee:  It’s something we considered … I’m not really sure why people would be turned off by it. Just be warned if you are having anything outdoors that your guests might be wearing ski jackets or parkas, so not the best for photos haha. Ooh, sorry, scratch that if it is in NYC -I don’t think it gets quite cold enough!

    I’m very similar to you (although I got engaged in April and will have a long-ish engagement because I want to get married in the summer–I’m a teacher).

    The biggest reason I didn’t want to go with a winter wedding (aside from being a teacher, and having 2/3 of the BMs teachers) was that my entire family except my parents has to travel. I was too concerned about possible travel concerns getting to Chicago. But if most of your guests are local, I would think your reasoning was probably exactly what it is–that you just wanted to get married but needed enough time to plan and a date that was feasible for everyone involved. And winter weddings can be so pretty!

    Only if you’re going to have it outside!

    Then I would have to send my regrets.

    But if it’s inside, no big deal!

    I highly doubt that any guests will be concerned with your wedding not being during the peak season. If there are, it really doesn’t matter. If the majority of the guests are local, a winter wedding shouldn’t be much of an issue. I would not be turned off by a winter wedding. I like winter weddings, though.

    Your plans sound very nice and considerate of your guests.

    Nope, I’ve always wanted to go to a winter wedding actually! As long as it’s not on christmas day!
    I’m down with weddings any time of year.

    @Jewelieee:  I don’t think it should be a problem. Winter weather could make it tricky, but if most guests are local then that shouldn’t really be a big problem.

    Not at all! As a guest I’m not turned off at all by weddings being held in the winter.
