Hello! I’m new to this site and am a bride to be within the next 6 months to a year. I don’t know much about planning a wedding so my friend who is also fixing to be married suggested this forum for advice. My fiance and I are wanting to get married in the colder weather but in Texas there’s not much luck with that lol I liked February since the month itself is supposed to be about love and etc. My soon to be husband thinks it’s too cliche and that it might be more expensive. What are the opinions of others? Thanks!

unless it’s on Valentine’s Day itself I don’t see how that’s cliche at all. It’s a month like any other

I think February is a fine month for a wedding!

It’s cliche if it’s on Valentine’s Day. Otherwise, you’re fine. Prices of things shouldn’t be higher, again, unless it’s Valentine’s.

thanks for the advice! We’re both so picky it has been hard to find what we both like especially when it comes to the date/place and the ring! I’m looking for a blue sapphire ring and haven’t had any luck

I’m probably biased because I got married in February but I don’t really see how it’s cliche. The whole month isn’t devoted to Valentine’s Day, surely by that logic any month with a celebration could be a cliche?
As for price it’ll depend on what is the peak wedding season in Texas. I’m in the UK so it’s winter and cold here in February so less people are inclined to get married here because of that and our venue was a lot cheaper as a result.

I don’t think its cliche at all to get married in the month of February unless you’re picking Valentine’s day. If you like the day/month you’ve picked for personal reasons, i feel you should just go ahead and embrace it!
I’m having my wedding in June 2018 and at first i thought it was cliche to have a june wedding, but not anymore (:

It’s not cliche. I’m in the East Texas & February is a little unpredictable for weather here. March, April, and October are the big wedding months in Texas because the weather tends to be nicer.

I don’t understand why February would be seen as cliche. Even if you got married in Valentine’s Day I wouldn’t jump to cliche.

February is not cliche and is not even peak wedding season in Texas. Weather can be super unpredictable – could be 70 and sunny or an ice storm – so keep that in mind. I have been to dozens of weddings and can only remember 1 or 2 in January, none in February, and then probably 8-10 each in March and April…just to show you how low the demand is for a February wedding in Texas.
I think the only issue you may run into if you get married in the first half of the month is the cost of flowers. Most florists (and the sources they buy from) jack up prices for Valentine’s Day and you could end up paying more for something that would be cheaper post Valentine’s Day.

This is an excellent point. The week leading up to Valentine’s day (and Mother’s day) are the busiest time for florists, and they absolutely raise prices. They are paying more for their stock as well, and paying overtime to their staff to get all of the orders completed and delivered. I would definitely wait until after Valentine’s day.

I agree, other than Valentine’s day its not at all.
My parents actually got married on V-day (at midnight) because my mom thought it was romantic and my dad agreed that he would never forget the date! I always laughed at that!

get married right AFTE Valentine’s Day, and prices should actually be lower!

I don’t think a Valentine’s day wedding is cliche. Cheesy maybe, but not cliche. Cliche means something used to be original but it’s been done so much that it’s now boring and predictable. I’m old and have never known anyone who got married on Vday. Also, I’ve never heard that the whole month is about love. To me, February is Black History Month. If you want flowers, I’d ask some local florists about pricing in February. Flowers will be in demand, but most places actually put them on sale rather than raising prices, so it could go either way.
A February wedding with hearts as the theme, or red and pink for your colors — that would be cliche. Anything else and Valentine’s day would not even cross my mind.

I hope not, I’m getting married in February 😊 Pick a day/ month that works best for your timeline and don’t worry what other people think
