The film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers put it best: “They say when you marry in June you’re a bride all your life.”
Whether or not that’s true, the craze for June weddings has continued to turn even the most peaceful brides into bridezillas since the beginning of the wedding industry. Dating back to medieval times, June is the most desirable wedding time for many reasons which have changed during the years. At first it was desired for its connections to both ancient traditions and the harvest times.
Now, couples fight for their June wedding due to its longer daylight hours and better weather conditions. It’s also a much easier time for family and friends to travel if needed.
For these reasons, it can be extremely difficult to book that June wedding at your dream venue within a reasonable time frame. Deer Creek South Florida golf club has a few pieces of advice on how to get that June wedding without waiting for years.
Stay Away from the Holiday
When choosing your wedding date in June, don’t even consider holiday weekends. Not only are they more expensive for the wedding couple and those attending, but they’re more difficult to book, as well. Of course, a three-day weekend may seem like the perfect time to schedule your dream wedding, but you’ll probably waiting a few years for that dream to come true.
Move on to the Off-Season
Your best bet for booking your breezy June wedding is to consider the off-season. If you’re interested in a destination wedding in the tropics or the mountains, summertime is a much less popular time to schedule a date.
Dabble in Discounted Days
Even in June, many wedding venues offer discounted prices for Fridays and Sundays. Additionally, other weekdays are priced even lower than this. It’s not that ideal Saturday evening June wedding, filled with the glow of a golden sunset and the cool night air; it’s still in June, though, and weekday nights are just as beautiful.
Toy Around with the Time
If you are dead-set on a Saturday June wedding, consider holding it during the day. You will be more likely to book a venue for the day than for the night. Brunch weddings are trending now, as well, since the couple can serve varieties of festive, delicious breakfast and lunch favorites. Maybe waffles aren’t as romantic and sophisticated as a filet, but what about an artisanal-decorated French crepe cake?
Bring Your Backups
The most sure-fire way to ensure that you land that June wedding is to consider multiple dates at multiple venues. Be flexible and plan in advance. According to a survey by The Knot, couples wait an average of 14 months before their wedding day. This way, if you one date falls through, you’ll have another to pull out for your June wedding.
