Weddings are notoriously expensive. After everyone watching the royal wedding earlier this year, people were all abuzz about how much the royal family would spend on their nuptials. But there’s a secret hack a lot of people don’t know about wedding savings, and WiseDime is here to let everyone know the best time to have your dream wedding and spend the least amount of money on it.
Autumn is the best season for getting married. The average cost of a U.S. wedding is around $30,000, but you can save thousands by doing it out of season. Sure, we’d all love to have the sun glistening on the beach when we say “I do” in the middle of June or July, but you can have the perfect gathering when the weather cools down and it will be easier on the pocket.
1 in 3 American weddings are now occurring in fall instead of the months of May, June, and July. The fad is taking over the wedding industry purely because there are better discounts on venues, vendors, and all other expenses. Plus, a lot of couples are enjoying mixing autumn colors into their ceremony, so that’s a plus, too.
