Save Money with Winter Weddings at Drumore Estate!

There are many reasons to consider a winter wedding at Drumore Estate. A crackling fireplace, hot drinks, twinkly lights, and comfort food can make wintertime delightfully cozy for you and your guests. Snow on your wedding day is considered a sign of fertility and prosperity to come! A dusting of snow on your big day can make your wedding look like a scene out of a wintery fairytale – perfect for stunning, snowy photographs. Winter weddings are not the same thing as Christmas weddings. There is a wide range of winter-themed ideas, from casual rustic to an elegant, sparkling wonderland, with many beautiful seasonal color palettes to choose from.

Most locations and vendors book up quickly during the summer months and come with a hefty price tag, whereas those locations and vendors are available for a lower price during the colder months. Winter months are often considered off-season, which is important when budgeting is a factor. Drumore Estate’s off-season venue rates are about half of prime-season rates. Travel and hotel stays are at peak pricing in the summer when school is out and families take their vacation, so a winter wedding allows guests to take advantage of off-season pricing for their travel and accommodation options.

Because the winter months aren’t as busy as other months for vendors, there will be more dates to choose from, and vendors can focus more on your big day. Guests may also be more available to attend your event.
