Summer is just around the corner, so for those contemplating a summer wedding, the time to make your reservations with your preferred vendors is right now. In our many years as an Atlanta event rental company, summertime has traditionally been a busy season for our industry.
In North America at least, July is the month of the year with the highest number of weddings. August has the second most number of weddings, while June, once the most popular month for weddings, is a close third. September and October round out the top five most popular months.
This means you have quite a lot of competition for caterers, choice locations, event furniture and merchandise vendors. By booking their services early, you are assured of a stress- and hassle-free wedding day. Most vendors are also open to giving discounts or tossing in a few freebies when clients book ahead.
Other Events on the Summer Horizon
There are other major life moments that take place during the summer months. For example, in many states, graduations take place in May or June. This means you face stiff competition from families who need to hire caterers, space and event furniture to celebrate this major milestone. In addition, high schools and universities often rent chairs and tables for their graduation ceremonies. Choose your vendors early and stay ahead of the summer crowd.
A lot of vendors delay taking a break during the summer months precisely because it is such a busy time for the industry. However, there are vendors who do go on vacation during summer. This means there are even fewer options available to you and others who are planning a summer event.
Booking ahead also gives your vendors time to make sure they have their inventory in order as well as other provisions requested by their customers. If you have a must-have item for your summer event, reserving early gives your vendor ample time to procure or make this item.
