The summer months are usually the most popular time for weddings, but getting married in March has so many benefits that you may not have thought about.
Chloe, our expert Wedding Co-ordinator, has put together this list of 7 fabulous reasons to get married in March.
Spring is when all manner of animal babies are born. Trees bloom, flowers, erm, flower.
Basically, it’s a time for new beginnings and beautiful memories.
March is a wonderful spring month in the UK and it’s a romantic time to tie the knot too.
Think of the message you’re sending here – you’re starting a new beginning as a married couple, during a season that is all about nature’s new beginnings. You can’t get much more romantic than that.
No matter what wedding venue you choose, you can head outside and take some stunning photographs to remember your big day by.
Blossoming trees will provide the most stunning backdrop for your wedding snaps.
In general, spring is all about pastels and florals and when you picture a wedding, isn’t that what you see?
Think rolling green hills, flowers blooming, lambs jumping. That’s what March is all about. It’s a sweet, even cute month, that sums up starting a new life together perfectly.
If you choose to get married during the peak summer season, you run the risk of scheduling your wedding during a heatwave. If you choose the winter, it could be blowing a gale.
However, if you choose a shoulder month, i.e. spring or autumn, you have a more even-keeled weather pattern.
The weather in March is often pleasant – certainly not hot, but often it’s not too cold either.
If you decide to have a late March wedding, you stand an even better chance of enjoying a nice, sunny day.
March isn’t a busy holiday time, and although Easter may fall towards the end of the month, your guests will probably be available to attend your wedding.
That may not be the case if you choose any of the summer months from June to August. Even December can be a very busy month for many people.
Another one of the major perks of getting married in March is that it’s not peak season, so you’ll find lower prices at most wedding venues.
You also won’t need to book as far ahead as most wedding venues and suppliers will have better availability.
And that means you’re more likely to get your first choice wedding venue.
If you’re planning a March wedding and have your heart set on being outdoors, late March is a good option.
You can certainly set up a marquee with some heaters.
For sure, it can sometimes be chilly in March but it’s not as unpredictable as the winter months, and dramatically improves as the month progresses.
March is a great month to go on honeymoon.
Think Bermuda, South Africa, The Maldives, the list goes on. These are the best weather months for some of the traditional honeymoon destinations and you may find good prices as it’s not a traditional holiday month in the UK.
If you’re planning on jetting off immediately after the wedding or even a few days later, March weddings will give you plenty of options to think about.
We hope that we’ve helped you decide whether March is a good month to get married.
