You may be receiving more wedding invitations for fall celebrations. Fall has become the most popular time for “tying the knot” across the country. Hawthorn Bed & Breakfast embraces this new trend and now has many fall weekends reserved for weddings and receptions.
The reasons for this change from “traditional” June weddings to the fall season vary from couple to couple but one big reason for the switch is the weather. In many parts of the country, September and October have the lower chances of rainy weather. The humidity usually dissipates after the heat of August passes – making September comfortable for outside events. October takes on the beautiful colors of fall so coordinating colors of dresses and flowers is easy, fun, and turns out beautifully!
According to Brides Magazine, nine of the top 10 most popular dates for weddings in 2018 are in September and October and the 10thdate is in August – not one date in June! In 2017, The Knot reported that seven of the top ten wedding dates were in September and October. In 2016, the top two months, September and October, tied in popularity with 16% of wedding couples choosing those times for ceremonies and celebrations. June fell to third place choice with 13% of the ceremonies.
At Hawthorn Bed & Breakfast in Independence, MO, we have wedding packages to fit your plans from very simple to full weekend including lodging for your wedding party. You may just want an elegant setting for your ceremony for just a few of you. For just $150 you can invite 10 of your best friends to witness you tying the knot!
