Advantages of Getting Married in the Winter

While spring and summer are often considered the peak seasons for exchanging vows, there are several advantages to getting married in the winter, including better attendance, more affordable travel, and increased venue availability.

Higher Attendance Rates

Because trees and flowers are in bloom and the weather is usually agreeable, many couples prefer a wedding date in spring and summer. Unfortunately, this means that their guests may be invited to more than one wedding on the same weekend, forcing them to decline one of the invitations. If you and your fiancé would like to have as many people as possible witness your wedding, planning a wedding date that falls between September and February may be a wise choice.

Affordable Travel Accommodations

If you’re a Baltimore couple who’s planning your wedding in the city, you’ll want to take into consideration the budget of your guests when it comes to airline tickets and hotel stays. The most popular time to visit Baltimore is between June and August, and during this time, flight and lodging costs can increase exponentially. Planning a winter wedding date is a great way to ensure that your guests don’t have to choose between breaking the bank for travel accommodations and witnessing your blessed union.

Venue Availability

For future brides and grooms, there is nothing more frustrating that having to compromise on a wedding date because your preferred venue is booked. Unfortunately, choosing a wedding date in the spring or fall increases the chances that someone else will have already laid claim to your dream wedding location. Baltimore is a beautiful city during the warmer months, but it is just as beautiful during the winter, especially if a fresh blanket of snow is covering the ground, and you’re likely to have some amazing photo opportunities to boot.

Baltimore’s Choice Banquet Hall

If you’re considering planning your wedding in Baltimore during the winter, NPRMC provides banquet halls that can accommodate large groups of people. You and your guests will appreciate having an indoor reception venue that offers valet parking, security, catering, and audio/visual services in which to celebrate the new couple.
