Over the past few years, event professionals have been inundated with requests for info from couples getting married in October. The numbers have been steadily increasing, and it is quickly becoming our busiest month of the year. With weather always being a concern (yes it can snow here in October) some couples are even having outdoor receptions. The reason for this trend is simple...discounts.
Many (read ALL) venues give an "off-season discount" to couples looking to save a few dollars on their dream wedding. More often than not we are almost expected to give a discounted rate as well. In 2017 we made the decision to not discount weddings in October. It is now considered to be a prime wedding month for us here at A+ Event Entertainment, as well as the rest of northern Michigan wedding professionals.
You see every wedding is equally important to us. Whether (see what I did there) or not it is in July, or December. We put the same amount of work into every event that we do, with very few exceptions. When choosing your entertainment PRICE should not be the deciding factor. Finding someone that you bond with, someone that shares your unique vision, and someone that you can trust is more important than a discounted rate.
