What is the cheapest month for a wedding?
This depends on where you are in the world. In general with a moderate climate, winter months are cheaper. However if you live somewhere mainly hot, then winter months are likely to be peak time.
For the US and UK January, March, April, and November are cheaper. December despite being winter is popular for Christmas, holidays and New Year weddings. And as a holiday season this increases the price. February is also a popular month due to Valentine's Day.

Apparently the 6th month of the year June is considered the luckiest time of the year of the year to get married. In the UK and US it is certainly likely to be the most expensive! For our lovers of Greek Mythology June is derived from JUNO who is the Roman Goddess of marriage!
For 2020 February was clearly the luckiest month to get married, given we have been in a Pandemic ever since, with restrictions on guest numbers and weddings during lockdown being completely banned in many cases.

What is the cost of a small wedding?
Over at the low budget wedding network facebook group we have polled our engaged couples re their budgets and the majority have a wedding budget of less than $5000 (50-100 guests). Some have less than $1000 (50 or less guests) and a smaller amount that consider $30,000 (100+ guests) a low budget. Depending on where you live the average cost of a wedding (and the numbers you're inviting) this can still be low budget.

Ideas for an Alternative Wedding That Will Save You Money
It depends on what it is worth to YOU. If you value making memories on this special day above a deposit for a house, a honeymoon, children's college fund or whatever expense you may be forfeiting to pay for your wedding, then it it is worth it.
If you want a big expensive wedding and can easily afford it without forfeiting anything else or getting into debt then YES it is worth it. If however, other priorities are more important to you then YES an expensive wedding may not be worth it.
Couples who value their expensive weddings made it a momentous occasion. An opportunity to gather all their friends and family under one roof for the ultimate party of their lives.
All manner of rules, rituals and traditions were in place in days gone by for weddings but we do NOT have to stick to these outdated traditions and especially not the one where the bride's family (regardless of means) pay for the entire wedding! It does however remain in many regions and cultures.
It is more common with our low budget wedding couples that they mainly save and pay for the wedding themselves with some/no help from both sides of the family.
