    “On”.. october bride here. I guess i didn’t realize how popular it was!

    i always wanted a fall wedding..but thought September was too popular and November could be too cold. No real significance to our date though πŸ˜›

    We’re off-season: it’s cheaper (we’re getting married in January).  Plus, I hate winter, so I figure this will give me something to look forward to for the first time ever during winter post-Christmas.  Plus I wasn’t too keen on the idea of everyone sweating like crazy at my wedding.  And that would definitely include me, since my dress weighs about eight thousand pounds.  And the date we picked had to be not during the school year (it’ll be during winter break), since we’ll both be grad students.

    Hoping to have an “off-season” wedding, just to help out with the budget.

    Off season for two reasons: 1) Hoping I can get some better deals 2) Wedding season is my busy season (because I’m in the industry) so I have less going on!

    I am off season because: (1) I am off from school then, (2) I will always be off on my ann., (3) when I have kids they will be off from school and can stay with my parents when we go away for our ann. lol, (4) the date is cool.

    I don’t think it has made my wedding less expensive since choosing this date, but I am getting first choice at my vendors because after I got engaged they were just beginning to book for 2011.

    i’m an off season bride! ive found we’ve been able to save a little bit by having our wedding in january, but i’ve also noticed winter weddings are starting to become popular, too … have to say, i picked january because i love the snow and think a cold, snowy wedding is sublimely romantic πŸ™‚ — can you tell i’m a minnesota-girl, born & raised?

    @hsearle: I agree, winter weddings are romantic. I also think it is cool to go to a warm tropical honeymoon while everyone else is freezing.

    I didn’t know anything about this – – I’m an “on” season bride.

    However, here in Seattle we are considered off season as the rain has set in and its quite quiet here in the city. Our hotel rates and venue rates are lower due to our date and the rainy season……

    • Wedding: April 2010

    We have an off season wedding and the only off season discount we got was our reception site.  For being off season and booking almost a year in advance, we saved $4700 off the food/bev/decor minimum.  We’ve had a really easy time booking all of our vendors too.  Everyone is available in April.  I wouldn’t do it any other way.
