- Wedding: July 2014
Not sure where my previous post on this thread went BUT let me try again!
I would never hate on a winter wedding because of it costing less in winter. That’s absurd. There’s no such thing as a cheap wedding, am I right? lol
<br />That being said, it all depends on WHEN in the winter that you have it. For example, a coworker had hers December 28th…aka 3 days after Christmas. For many of us, we travel a LOT between Thanksgiving and Christmas and spent a lot of money in gas/flights to do so. Also, with the holiday being mid week, it means a lot of people who work in a hospital/somewhere that doesn’t close that week, that Saturday was something everyone looked forward to doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on. It wasn’t just the logistics, it was also the money. I felt bad about not being able to give a gift I normally would have but we had spent so much on our large families for Christmas that it just wasn’t in the paycheck for us. A lot of people didn’t end up going because of the timing so it’s a bummer in that sense. But, if you did it after New Years or something when people have some time and pay periods to recover from the holiday season.
