I am thinking I may want to set my date for November of this year! All of the weddings I have EVER been invited to have been May through Oct. I have never been to a November wedding and neither have any of my close friends. Since I live in NY and it is COLD where I live I have heard there are discounts in Nov! Please share if you or your friends have stories about Nov. weddings!

Im a January Bride and heard of “winter Discounts” too but didn’t really feel like I got any. If anything its just not as competitive trying to get the venue/venders you want.

Each venue/vendor will have their own prices. Some won’t change prices no matter which time of year it is – other may! It will take some leg work on your end! (by leg work, I mean internet)

We’re having an off season wedding and the discounts aren’t as great as you’d think. The minimum required people for a Saturday wedding at our venue was less, but the price wasn’t different. The other things were that the vendors weren’t booked, we got the DJ, photographer, officiant, florist, and caterer we wanted. And with our wedding being before the start of wedding season some of our vendors let us book them with their 2011 pricing, not the 2012 pricing, so that saved us some.

Wow, I sure wish that I was getting discounts for having a November wedding! I think the discounts would apply to Friday or Sunday weddings but not the whole month of November….

I think it depends on where you are getting married. We’re getting married in Vermont in November and there are definitely a lot of discounts. It’s the beginning of their small offseason (after peak foliage before the ski season). It also can’t hurt to ask venues and vendors if they offer any discounts 🙂

I had a November wedding and I do not believe that we got discounts on any vendors. But we were told by our venue during booking that the same package for a saturday night during peek season was $120pp more than we paid for a sunday in November, Jan would have been $10 cheaper. They were also more lenient with minimuns and the vendors might have been as well.
