4 Classic Benefits of an Off-Season Wedding

1. Discounts galore

Both venues and vendors alike often offer discounts during slower months.  The money you don’t spend on your wedding could be money spent towards a top notch honeymoon.  Why go to the Poconos when you could go to Hawaii.

2. Excellent Availability

Maybe you can’t get the venue you want on the exact Saturday in June, but you may be able to choose from 3 Saturdays from that same venue in February.   Perhaps the photographer you like is booked every weekend in September, but has many open dates in January.

3. Better Attendance

If your event occurs when your potential guests have less on their social calendars, you’re more likely to get more positive responses.

4. Superior Service

When vendors and venues aren’t as busy, they have more time and energy to devote to you.  It’s like being a pampered only child vs. a child sharing attention with many siblings.  During a busy season, caterers may have multiple affairs in one day.

The staff at Historic Oakland want to help you plan your event. We are here to assist you with everything you need, from lists of caterers to choosing how to decorate the rooms, deciding on how to use our beautiful grounds or finding the best photographer. Our historic venue in downtown Columbia, Maryland will make your event one that all your guests will remember for years to come.
