November... OUR MONTH!!

HELLO ALL NOVEMBER BRIDES!


We're getting married in a not-so-popular month, but we each picked it for our own reasons....


What's your reason for choosing November as your wedding month??


I'll start:


My family & FI's family are prairie peeps, his family being farmers....  therefore SUMMER is not a good time to stop seeding/harvest/etc to get married


I have always imagined myself getting married in a winter wonderland.  Having been in several hot summer weddings, I always knew I would want something different for my wedding.  November seemed like a good middle-ground :) :)

When we decided to get married (in January), we knew we needed some time to save some $$, so, although I'm a teacher, the summer was just too soon.  After we saw our venue we knew we wanted it.  It's a golf course and it will be closed to golfers in November.  This also meant, for us, that while our wedding was going on upstairs, there wouldn't be any golfers in the lounge downstairs (giving us the entire venue to ourselves).  I also love cooler weather, and though it's not the heart of autumn, I love the way trees look at that time of year!

I originally chose November out of pure practicality--my sibs all married in June and July, so I wanted something different, and that's the timeline that worked for FI and I. 


BUT, now, I realize that I couldn't have chosen better.  The weather in FL at that time of year is perfect!  It's the end of hurricane season, so less chance of wet weather or hurricanes.  It's also nice and cool without being cold.


ALSO, my favorite color is burgundy/wine.  Well, apparently, that's a fall color!  (Yeah, I can be slow.  What can I say????)  All the colors that I love are in season in fall.  Decorating and picking out flowers, decorations, etc. has been so much fun.  I love it.  **Sigh**  I think November is now officially my favorite month!


EDIT:


I almost forgot--travel is super cheap in the off-season in FL too.  So, every year for our anniversary we can take a little trip for not too much dough.  :)  Better and better!

we chose November because we're doing a destination wedding in Maui.  We wanted to do it 'off season' so that people can take advantage of the travel deals and still avoid the rainy season.  Plus FI bday is in November :)

FI and I chose November because we've been to too many July weddings where the guys are sweating bullets and are miserable and FI insisted that we not do that to our bridal party. We both LOVE Fall and wanted a wine themed wedding so November was the perfect month! The fact that it's not peak season and vendors are cheaper was just a bonus!! :)

  • We chose November because the hot weather usually backs off by then down here in Louisiana and we did not want to sweat at our wedding

  • Because it was far enough away from Christmas to still get Christmas presents instead of wedding presents disguised as christmas presents!

  • Far enough away from either of our birthdays for the same present reason

  • And finally, it gave us abou a year to plan from when we got engaged.

Mostly we went with Nov 7th because 11 is FI's lucky number and 7 is mine plus it is a Saturday.  haha  We wanted to get married in July but we didn't have enough time to plan so we picked Nov.

We live in Australia, so it will be spring for us. And FI chose the date, so I think it is special in that way!

My fiance proposed to me in February, and at first I wanted a summer wedding at the beach. But after researching we felt differently. And we wouldn't have too much time for planning or saving money. We came across our venue, The French Estate, and immidiately fell in love with the place. My fiance's brother/best man is in the air force and has been deployed since August and will be returning late this month. So that is how we decided upon NOVEMBER! We will have the beautiful fall leaves and nice cool weather being that we're in Southern California. I think it will be perfect!

I really wanted September because it starts to cool down in Southern CA. But the church wasn't available until November. But I love that I can do fall accents. I'm doing mini white pumpkins (Ralph's for .99c each) along with some white candles as our guests walk into the reception spot.

had i left it up to the FI we would have gotten married in August (mind you we got engaged in March 09) so that wasn't going to be enough time for me to plan the wedding, so we sat down and talked about at least 9 months out so with that said we came up with the first weekend in November :) worked out like charm it's "off peak season" and i've always loved the Choc. Brown, Creams and Burnt Orange colors (yes fall colors) so it worked out perfect :)

We got officially engaged in March and had already started our planning before that and knew we really didn't want to wait a long time. But FI is in Israel right now for couple weeks, the trip had been planned out for over a year. And he didn't want to get married and then leave me for that long. So we had to wait until November. But I am so excited it's getting so close! I can't wait!!
