Choosing when to get married is likely to be one of the first big decisions that you make after getting engaged.
To help you, Chloe, our expert Wedding Co-ordinator, has come up with a list of 10 wonderful reasons to get married in February – Cupid’s favourite month.
Getting married in February means that you’re not choosing one of the peak months.
Apart from Valentine’s Day, when prices may spike temporarily, February is one of the cheapest months to get married.
If you choose to get married towards the end of February, you’re heading into spring – the season of new beginnings.
Daffodils will be popping up and so many other beautiful flowers will be in bloom too, creating a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photographs.
February is the ideal time to visit many exotic destinations as it’s not too hot. And you should get a good price too.
Be sure to check out the specific weather patterns of those exotic locations, but overall there are lots of honeymoon options after a February wedding.
Valentine’s Day – doesn’t that say it all?
Even if you decide not to get married on Valentine’s Day, the rest of the month is still super-romantic. For that reason, getting married in February means that love is on your side!
The post-Christmas and New Year blues can sometimes be quite hard to deal with.
But if you’ve got a February wedding on the horizon, you and all your guests will have something wonderful to look forward to.
Although January can be quite a dark and cold month, February is a big improvement when it comes to light levels. Especially from the middle of February onwards.
So you can still have your dream of a new start in a new year, without the typical January weather affecting your big day’s plans.
If you’re worried about your nearest and dearest not being able to make your wedding day, you shouldn’t have an issue if you choose to get married in February.
Most people don’t start going away until at least April. That means all your friends and family should be free to attend without having to send their apologies.
February is the most common month for snow in the UK.
If you’re blessed with a sprinkling of snow on your big day, just imagine how magical your wedding photos will look!
Choosing a month outside of the peak season means that your first choice wedding suppliers are much more likely to be available.
So if you don’t really want a long engagement, getting married in February or another off-peak month could be the way to go.
In February the sun sets at around 5.30-6pm.
That’s great news because it means that you can kickstart your wedding reception party earlier! You’ll have a true party atmosphere and everyone will enjoy themselves even more.
