June, July, August... Beware!

Summer is the month for weddings, especially if you live in northern parts of the country making winter weddings out of the question. And if you're one of those, it means that the Summer months are premium wedding months, which means you'll pay top dollar.

June, July and August are premium wedding months and in fact, that's when most weddings in the U.S. take place. Catering properties like country clubs and hotels also know that when it comes to brides and grooms, that's when they need to make their money.

So if you're a budget-conscious bride, "high wedding season" may not be the best time to host a wedding. 

To get the best wedding deals be a tough, but fair, negotiator.

Beating the System...

If you have no choice but to be married in Summer, then there are a couple of ways around this dilemma. 

Reserve your wedding on a Friday or Sunday night and negotiate with the catering manager to get a better deal. After all, these nights are much more difficult to book than Saturday night and they should be willing to negotiate with you. Always be a tough, but fair, negotiator! 

Or, if you can, have your wedding in the Spring or Fall, when the number of weddings drops perceptibly. You'll be in a much better position to negotiate a better price. 

Get the best deals on an off-season, on an off-night!

Not Just Venues but Vendors!

By having your wedding on an off-night in an off-season (like Spring or Fall, if you live in the North), you can save lots of wedding dollars, but this doesn't just apply to venues like catering halls or country clubs.

You should also be able to negotiate better deals with all the vendors you'll be working with including DJs, bands, limos, etc. These vendors will be glad to get business on a day or season when their business is slower--unlike the premium wedding months of Summer!
