According to high street chain Debenhams, winter weddings are up 28% with the week of Sunday 26th December 2010 and are now as popular as the first week in July. The change was noted when the Debenhams Gift List service experienced a record number of couples registering lists in September and October for weddings taking place from November through to February.
Debenhams research shows that booking a wedding on a Friday or Sunday, rather than the standard Saturday, has also increased in popularity with brides and grooms looking to cut costs. And as an added bonus it also found that winter wedding guests are likely to be more generous when buying wedding gifts.
So not only can saying “I do” in the cold winter months save a couple of pennies, but think about the added romantic ambiance only a frosty winter day can offer!
