Winter weddings, and in particular, Christmas weddings are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons, aside from economic ones.
(PRWEB UK) 19 November 2013
With the average cost of weddings spiralling up to £18,000 for the average couple, it is perhaps understandable that many are wanting to tighten their belts and not spend extravagantly on their big day. In the past, it has long been suggested that it is the costs that are the most important consideration during wedding planning particularly in economically testing times.
Last year, The Office for National Statistics reported that the amount of marriages in the winter months had increased by 7% in two years. With budgets still tight in 2013, Tom Brown, Operations Director of the High Spec Group (experts in the field of wedding venue backdrops) fully expects that trend to continue.
“It is becoming more and more obvious that weddings are expensive affairs, even if done modestly. We’ve discovered that newly-weds-to-be, and those within the wedding trade are determined to make any savings that they can. Therefore, wedding suppliers of any kind ought to be prepared for winter to be a busy period.”
However, Mr. Brown argues that the trend is not only financially motivated. “Winter weddings, and in particular, Christmas weddings are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons, aside from economic ones. If themed as a ‘winter wonderland’, white weddings tend to be more atmospheric, with white colour schemes and lighting more symbolic of elegance and appropriate to the season. They also have a real traditional feel to them, which, as we have discovered from the feedback from our trade customers, is proving to be a real hit among couples. Plus, there’s even a chance it may snow, further reinforcing the excitement of a winter wedding."
Brown is insistent that his customers still seek the highest standards when it comes to wedding venue dressing; indeed, Mirage have enjoyed an increase in demand for their elegant backdrops, designed to transform any venue, no matter how modest, into a more opulent setting. In the past, the High Spec have turned hotel function rooms, marquees, sports halls, village halls and even bars into functional and attractively draped venues.
