Is the wedding going to happen during peak season or off-season?

There is a peak season for weddings, the months, the day of the week, even down to the time of day. If you want yours to happen in the most popular times you will be paying more and you will likely have a longer waiting time. Plan at least a year ahead, for some popular venues, even more, might be needed! For off-season weddings 6 months is usually acceptable. Offseason is a great option if you are flexible about the weather for people on a budget too, not just wedding venues, a lot of other areas of the industry offer a discount on their service when it is not wedding season.

Compare several options and visit them
