Mine isn’t off season but I remember, seeing some price reductions in venue rentals for off season.  I think it would maybe be a $500 or $1000 difference in places whose rentals were maybe $3000(+) or so for a normal Saturday night. 

There’s a bigger savings doing it on a weekday versus a weekend.  Fridays were cheaper, but I only found them to be cheaper by about $500 so it wasn’t worth it to me.

I couldn’t tell you about florists or photographers.  I’m not sure if caterers would have any deals because they often work all year anyway on other things besides weddings.

I believe off season was usually Nov, Dec, January, February

We have saved on our venue/catering (over $1800), our photographer (over $300), our dj (over $600 plus free uplighting!), our photobooth (over $300) .. I haven’t booked anything else yet! lol These were all the difference from the price lists on thier websites, or the difference I managed to get after I was given the initial quote and then asked for a discount since we were getting mariied off season. Not one vendor has had any issue with lowering their quotes, yet!

We’re saving on our venue for sure. I’ve been quoted lower rates by a few photographers and DJs, but not all of them. I haven’t decided who to go with yet, so I’m not sure I’ll reap any more savings from the off season date, but the venue savings are definitely appreciated!

When I was planning a Jackson Hole Wedding I did not see any differences in season beween officiant, photographer, venue, etc. prices.

 

I did however see a noticable difference in prices between Saturdays and every other day of the week!

@mrs-evans:  I got married in April and our photographers offered 10% off. Some venues we checked out offered 10-15% off. The venue we chose didn’t offer a discount but they did throw in some extras (extra meal option for guests, upgraded open bar to 8 hours from 6 etc.).

Since April is considered off season to some vendors and not others, you may not get the same discount you might expect if your wedding was in January or February.

If we would have gotten married in the off-season, we’d have saved about $4000 on our reception venue alone.
