This is true- we’re getting married the first weekend in November in VT and there is a huge difference in price! You can also negotiate with vendors a little more because its their off-season and they really want to have bookings. Where are you thinking of getting married?

There is a huge price difference for New Yorkers…. At least $60/head.

I saved even more by doing my wedding on a Sunday instead of Saturday or Friday

I am not in the Northeast, but I am getting married in November.  Our photographer is giving us 20% off for an “off season” wedding, and our caterer is renting their china/silverwear/glasswear/etc. to us at about 1/3 their normal price.

There are definitely perks to getting married during a month that isn’t one of the most popular!

I think you have the right idea!  My Fiance has October stuck in his head, I’m going to see if I can bring him around to November this coming weekend πŸ™‚

We tried to book in October, my dream month since I’d been planning a wedding … until our venue booked the last Saturday in October as we were driving over with a check (I’m over it, I promise lol). They offered November instead, with their off-season discount, and I was really happy.

We’ve gotten the discount at a few of our vendors already, so you should definitely save some money!

I was hoping to save some money for a Nov wedding but asking around in NYC, there isn’t much price difference.  The true “off season” in NYC is the heavy winter months (Jan – March) and not Nov.  Makes sense given the huge demand in NYC for wedding venues and vendors so the venues/vendors don’t need to budge much to fill their spots.

There is definitely a difference in price if you go with a November wedding! I am from the Chicago-area and my fiance and I knew we wanted a fall wedding (we were originally eyeing October 2012) when we started looking at reception venues. 

We ended up looking at 15 different reception venues – and 13 of the 15 were offering “off peak” discounts for choosing November over October. These discounts ranged from free upgrades to up to 20% off the package prices.

We ended up booking our dream venue for November 3rd – hoping that we will still have the benefits of the warmer fall weather with the nice “of peak” discounts!

Another added bonus of November over October and September – we have not run into many problems booking vendors – as there is less competition for our date! πŸ™‚

That is exactly why we chose November.  When we went to book our venue we were looking at an early October wedding on a Sunday.  The lady asked us if we were flexible with our date to save money, which we were.  We were able to move our date just three weeks out to November 3rd and have it on a Saturday, which is WAY better, and save almost $5,000.  It wasn’t even a question.  Although I would have loved an October wedding, three weeks isn’t that big of a deal.  So now I’m a November bride!

YES!  You will save tons!  I got a pretty swanky place which normally charges $150 to start per person. My rate for November?  $55/person!!!   Photographer also gives 20% off for “off season”. 

It’s worth it, the colors of the fall are so pretty!  πŸ™‚

Look at all these November 3rd brides! I originally wanted October too but with the big discount I got for having it in November I went with the first Saturday! =) We are in CT on the water and prices are so much higher here in the summer than in November.
