Follow our 8 ways on how to save money for a wedding!
1. Off-peak season
Getting married during the off-peak season will definitely cost you less money. What are the hot months in Malaysia? If you are trying to avoid the peak season to get married, then you have to avoid January - March & November - December.
January: As it transitioned from the holidays season of December, the beginning of January is also one of the popular choices among Malaysian couples when deciding on wedding dates.
February: The wedding cost will increase no matter for wedding venues or flowers. February is not only just the month of Valentine’s Day, it is also the time where Chinese celebrates Chinese New Year. Occasionally, Chinese New Year will take place in late January. Hence, January and February are some of the peak seasons Chinese Malaysia couples will consider when finalising wedding dates.
March: It sees an end to the monsoon on the east coast with gorgeous islands such as Tioman, Perhentian & Redang. This is why most beach lovers and sea enthusiasts couples will choose to have their wedding during March.
November & December: These 2 months are not valued price as these are the time where school holidays have started. Towards the end of the year, everyone is in the festive mood where countless holidays plans are made. In December (and on New Year’s Eve), your competition may not be other marrying couples but holiday parties that are looking for the same venues and vendors that weddings do.
