Thoughts on a March wedding? Found a dream venue, but the price is dramatically higher from April! I know the weather can’t be guaranteed, but we are hoping for luck ???????? End of March 2021
We were thinking 28th March but decided on 31st July same price for a Friday as a Saturday in March xx
We get married in March for the exact reason. You can’t guarantee the weather at any time of year so why spend a fortune. Plus spring is the best time of year
I’m getting married March next year. I think I will either have snow or daffodils. Both beautiful so I’m okay with that 😀
My wedding was March 28th and was sunny x
I’m getting married March 2020 and I found it so mcuh cheaper, they say rain is good luck on your wedding day as it tighten the knots if it gets wet🥰
You can't guarantee the weather any time of the year in the UK so I would go for it! But then I got married 29th dec
We booked our wedding for March 2018 all I will say is don’t go rural like we did. 7 foot snow drifts meant we had to reorganise it for 3 weeks later the day before the wedding.
I had a August wedding and had weather warnings for strong winds and rains and it didn’t ruin it at all was good luck pictures were great and best of all I married my soul mate
Getting married 21st March 2020 the weather is so unpredictable all year look at the summer we had x
I’m getting married 19/03/2021, I don’t think weather will ruin your big day x
I’m 21 March 2020 and I live in Northern Ireland where it always rains!
We are getting married end of march 2021 too. Not for a money saving thing - my fiancé gets really hot really quick and didn't want a summer wedding and being all stuffy. We have found some stuff is cheaper, but that's just been a bonus for us xx
We got married in March, it didn't make a difference to our price at all but it was amazing!
Iam get married in October 22nd 2022 iam hope for a nice crisp moring xx
Go for it, if that's when you wanna do it 😊 Maybe you could make sure the venue has indoor aswell as outdoor areas to fit all guests, just incase? We got married outside and luckily had perfect weather (in june) But there was a permanent marquee building too, and an alternative indoor place for the ceremony if the weather was severe. Hope you enjoy the planning, its stressful but exciting 😄💍
I'm getting married March 2020, and my parents were also March.
I'm getting married at the end of march next year, a. Because the weather is never guaranteed at any time of the year in this country and b. The price was a lot cheaper as it's classed as out of season. We will also be hoping the weather is nice but if not we will be getting umbrellas just in case x
Weather is never guaranteed! Go for cheap and cheerful, even with rain or snow it’ll still be a fab day! It can rain all day in July for double the price
I'm getting married 29th March 2020
We are having 27th march 2020. Cant wait. I've been to weddings in summer and its rained and been cold. Xx
Don't worry. a) I have been to many weddings with rain at all times of year (absolutely chucked it down at my sister's August wedding and at my Step-Brother's in May) and b) it's meant to be good luck... Wet knots are notably difficult to untie, so tying the knot on a wet day is said to lead to a tighter marriage bond.
Both my daughters have birthdays at the end of March and the weather is completely erratic! The year my eldest was born it snowed but other years it’s been really beautiful and sunny!
We went for October (now just 8 days away! ) but had exactly the same thought. It was cheaper than the summer but weather may not be as good...but as others have said, it's never guaranteed and we have planned for rain and planned for shine!
I got married in Feb yes we had a bit of rain but it didn't spoil the day
Weather is never guaranteed no matter what time of year. We got married last year in August and it was glorious sunshine but it rained on our anniversary this year so we just got lucky. My friend got married in March and it was mostly dry, just rained in the evening when we were all inside anyway. You just have to consider there is always that small chance of snow in March too.
We got married 30th March 2019 and the weather was stunning......... like a summers day with a slight breeze
There are lots of ways to reduce venue prices if you did want a summer wedding. One is to have a mid-week wedding. This can also bring the prices of your other suppliers down such as photographers. Another is to have a wedding later in the day around 3pm = you only have to feed people once! :) Still no guarantee of great weather in summer though!
Perfect or how about February a valentine wedding or Xmas wedding xx
I got married on 11th August this year thinking the weather would be nice, but not so...it rained off and on all day, so was in and out during the afternoon and early evening to grab photos. It didn't spoil it for us one little bit, we had the most AMAZING day!!
You might get a beautiful spring day in March. There's no guarantees with weather in this country x
It can rain in summer months and could be too hot to stay outside too winter weddings are so beautiful
I got married early March it was freezing but the only time it rained was at the night
Weve had same issue with ours, so weve gone mid week end of september. Going to get see through umbrellas just case!
We have booked our dream venue for 21st march 2021. A week later and it would have cost 3x as much. We cant stand hot weather and we save money :D win win! We're using rest of wedding to save on costs x
We are getting married mid week beginning of March!
It can pour down in June July and August, go for it !
All the best corris
I’m getting married in Feb. You don’t pay for the weather and in England, you can’t predict the weather anyway
I think March will be lovely to have a wedding. If it feels right for you and the one you’re marrying then that’s all that matters and I say go for it!
We nearly had March wedding, we are going to have an early April 2020 wedding as its close to our anniversary. Just buy some clear umbrellas if wedding forecast looks bad
You’re not guaranteed good weather anytime of the year 🤷️
April to mid September is main wedding season so any other month out of that you’ll find cheaper from 2k to 6k in places.
End of March usually lucky with some nice weather so go for it, as long as it’s inside anyway even if it rains you’ll still have a lovely day within the venue
Rain on your wedding day is seen as good luck
My wedding was the 30th March this year and it was a beautiful day.
We chose March as we saved nearly 2k on a package lol. It’s all in the same place, so I’m not too worried about the weather, as the hotel is literally in the middle of where all the guests live. Even snow, the guests should be able to get there 😅. I am tempted at insurance though, but not sure if it covers weather. We love in Wales, it’s bound to rain at least though 😂
Rained at mine and Jeff's, we're still tightly knotted!
We had a end of March wedding this year 23rd. Weather was lovely we did it beause of the price. I know people who got married in August and it rained you can’t gaurentee the weather. I’d say go for it x
I got married on March 30th this year.... Weather was fab... 👌 And was 6k cheaper than the 1st weekend in April. 😁
I'm 14th March next year, my thoughts were you can get rain anytime of the year anyway so may as well save a bit of money 😂
I went to a July wedding this year it rained... I got married in May it rained. It rains when ever it's the UK rain won't ruin a wedding xx
I did this, the basic package was £2000 less in March, we got married 29th March this year and weather was beautiful. X
I'm getting married in march for cost saving reasons out venue over doubles in price during the summer as they do winter wedding packages with alot more included !!x
We are doing march 2020 i booked march because our venue even said it better paying march than april were it was double for the same day just next month on
March is when the cherry blossoms come out on the trees! It’s so beautiful makes for really good photos
We married March 11th 2017 and although we didn't get much sun, it did stay dry and warm! X
Ours was April. It was dry for key bits (car to church, a few photos) and then chucked it down. Didn't matter at all! I had a pretty umbrella in case and was quite pleased I got to use it! Sis-in-law got married end of July and the rain was even heavier than at ours. Still a wonderful wedding! Weather is mixed bag in this country regardless - you might as well make the most of a significantly cheaper package!
Just check it's not mothers day weekend, as guests maybe away and if you need a florist you may struggle.
All I can say is be careful of mothers day as flowers get more expensive due to demand
Mine was March 9th this year perfectly fine!!! No issues with getting anyone to help and it was a perfect day I wouldn’t want to get married in July and be boiling hot sweating my make up off and my hair would probably just drop! Yours changing the weather but who cares!!!!! You’re getting married to the person of your dreams who cares if it’s snowing or raining just makes it more maniacal! You need to do what’s best for you
My daughter is getting married on 20th March 2020 loved the date and it’s officially the first day of spring too
I got married in February, was perfect. We planned for a winter's day and that's what we got. So no upset plans. You can never be sure what you will get in the summer!
I am getting married in March next year, hope it's a dry day
We are October 2021, our venue isn't cheaper in winter months, it's the same all year through. We know it's not going to be the best weather but it could also rain in the summer months 🤷🏼♀️ there's no controlling the weather. Just have to wing it 😂 xx
My wedding was 2nd March and weather was okay. Rained in the evening - we prepared for rain with umbrellas but didnt need them. We had been inside for a while by time rain came.
I actually asked the photographer for an outdoor photo just as rain started just to use them. xx
You could book a date in summer and it rain all day... I thi k I'd be more gutted playing it safe and booking a date in summer if the weather was rubbish!
My birthday is in March and I've had snow one year and glorious warm sunshine the next year!
I thi k a march wedding would be lovely, just coming to spring with blossom on the trees xx
My sister got married in March this year, the weather was brilliant.
We got married in January this year, we planned for rain or snow and got glorious sunshine during the day. I've seen July and summer weddings with rain, you just can't guarantee the weather. Go for what you want and just plan for the great British weather. Btw, this is us in the rain at 5pm
And this was us I the snow at 8pm
We are looking for April 2021 for the same reason! Our dream venue goes up by £2.5k if we go to ‘peak season’ in May. Planning for the rain just in case with a few large umbrellas for guests and a parasol for me if needed
