6 Winter Wedding Saving Strategies
Venue and Vendor Rates
- Affordable Venues
Securing a venue for the peak summer months can be a nightmare. Because of the popularity of summer weddings, venues are often more readily available in the winter. This means you have the potential to book your wedding at a venue in the winter that would have been out of the question six months earlier.
- Vendor Selection
As vendors such as DJ’s, caterers, and photographers enter off-season between December and February, the schedules become significantly less burdened. The lull in vendor’s schedules can translate into a more vendors to choose from…and (sometimes) discounts on services!
Wholesale Table Linens and Discount Decor
- Wholesale Table Linens
A bonus to planning a Christmas-themed wedding is the potential to save serious money on decor. If you’re not shy to DIY, you can start outfitting your venue in wholesale table linens from CV Linens. By purchasing wholesale table linens you have the opportunity to save at every price break, which means you can save and still achieve the look you’re after!

Accessories at a Discount
You can maximize your wedding budget by shopping for clearance Christmas decor shortly after Christmas. Take advantage of after-Christmas sales! Purchase the decor when it’s at a significant discount, then save it for your Christmas-themed wedding the next year. Even a bowl of glittering Christmas ornaments or miniature Christmas tree centerpieces will bring an inexpensive, festive touch to your wedding decor.
More Winter Wedding Advantages
You can stop sweating the perfect wedding menu and rely on old Christmas favorites! Your signature cocktail could be a holiday mulled wine or spiced apple cider. Fill your menu with seasonal, winter vegetables and Christmas classics like chestnuts and cranberry salads. You could even send your guests home with gift wrapped gingerbread brides and grooms as wedding favors!
A Full House
Winter usually signals a decline in busy summer obligations which cause people to be unavailable during the warmer months. The winter months will leave your guests clamoring for some excitement, so you can definitely expect your Christmas-themed wedding to be well attended. Prepare for a gaggle of wedding guests as the saying goes, “the more the merrier!”
