You and your fiancé are ready to make wedding plans. June, August, September, and October are the most popular months to get married. That means those months are booked solid with the vendors, venues, and the guests attending those weddings.
Why not consider something out of the ordinary and choose to get married in January? There are plenty of reasons why you could get married in the spring and summer months, but here are some reasons why you should marry in the middle of winter on the first month of the new year.
1. Easier to find vendors
Since the most popular months for tying the knot is later in the year when the weather is warmer and sunnier, you will find that vendors and venues have available dates for you to choose from. There may also be a discount offered during that month because the vendors want your business during their slower months.
Popular honeymoon destinations may also offer discounts to get your business. Keep in mind that hurricane season for many islands is not in January.
This would mean your wedding could be decorated with snow and ice, but you can dig your toes into the warm sand at your honeymoon without worrying about the weather interfering with the time you and the love of your life start a new life together.

2. Leave an impression
What is great about a January wedding is how it will leave an impression on your guests, and it will be an event they will certainly remember for a long time. You can really get creative with your wedding planning using nature as your guide.
Take advantage of the beauty the snow and ice can provide. How can you use ice crystals, snowflakes, and candlelight to create a winter wedding wonderland?
Do a search on Pinterest to find decorating ideas that add a special and unique touch to your wedding day and leave an impression on your guests. Photos can also be stunning during the winter months because of the lighting and the sparkling of the snow and ice or candlelight.
3. Wedding attire
Think outside of the traditional wedding box and go for furs, gloves, muffs, wraps, hoods or hats, coats, and so much more. Let your imagination go wild. The color theme is not a problem because the natural, neutral colors of winter compliment a wide array of colors.
Think dramatic. Think bright. Think neutral. Whatever color theme you decide to go with, the winter weather will compliment it beautifully.
