Many brides feel that they need at least a year to plan a wedding. Is this reality or is this what wedding websites tell us? Here are some factors to consider if you are contemplating an expedited wedding:
- How flexible are you?
- Your desired month of the year.
- The flexibility of the venue.
- The size of your wedding party.
- Venue offerings and services.
Many venues will offer last minute dates and deals, due to cancelations. You can actually get a five-star venue and the wedding of your dreams for a fraction of the original cost.
If you have a favorite venue but it’s out of your price range, contact them and ask if they offer cancelation or off-season rates. Follow them on social media and they will usually post the available dates toward the end of the season. For example, Zion Springs in Hamilton Virginia is offering some hot dates for $20,000 off. The dates are 10/26/19, 12/07/19/ and 12/21/19. Their price includes everything you need for your wedding, just show up with your dress and suite and get married!
