Posted by on Oct 14, 2015 in Weddings | Comments Off on Best Winter Wedding Venues in Essex

Winter is usually off season for weddings. However, because less people opt to have wedding during winter season, it’s also the best time to choose if you’re looking to spend less. Business is bleak for most wedding vendors so you can get good prices.

The winter season would limit outdoor weddings and confine your options to indoor venues but it doesn’t mean you’re left with only a few options. If you live in Essex, NJ, we’ll share suggestions for places you can check out when planning your wedding.

What to looking when choosing a venue during this season:

  • Indoor space which is warm
  • Accommodation space
