Buying your wedding dress -- or other matrimonial accessories -- in November may seem a bit unusual and hardly a "holiday" item.
But consider this: There are far fewer weddings in winter, which makes November a lead-in to the "slow season" that continues through January.
But even though demand slows -- and bargains increase -- the winter doldrums get a slight reprieve at Christmas, when there is an uptick in holiday-related marriage proposals.

Fewer shoppers mean lower prices, better selection and a potential advantage when it comes to negotiations.
Similarly, November may be a good month for the matrimonial-minded to start booking vendors for that June wedding, if they haven't already, before last-minute June brides and the newly engaged start snagging all the good reception halls and DJs.
