I've heard that during the less popular times of the year, reception sites often have cheaper rates for weddings. What are the "off" months?
In most parts of the country, the "deep" winter months -- January, February, and March -- are the least popular for weddings (June, August, September, and October are the most popular, but December has been gaining fast because of the holidays). Because there's less demand, you'll likely get discounted prices on your reception site -- not to mention most of your other wedding services, like catering, photography, and flowers (except around Valentine's Day and Easter, of course, when roses and lilies are at a premium because they're in high demand).
