Ask Jody: Cheapest Month for Wedding on Long Island

Vanessa, Bay Shore
Q:  I need help finding out what month is the cheapest to get married on? I’m thinking of Oct, Nov, Dec 2014, open bar, 150 guests; budget of 15,000 on hall alone.
A:  Hi Vanessa.  Thanks for writing! The KNOT.com has a budget calculator that can help you determine how to spend your money. You type in your overall budget, number of guests, and number of bridal attendants, and the budgeter breaks down the cost. On Long Island May-October are the most expensive months to get married. I would suggest November or February. Some venues are busy in December for holiday parties, and January for the New Year. You may be able to find a great deal at a venue on the water during these months, for example Captain Bills in Bay Shore or the Venetian Yacht Club in Babylon. Good luck!
