Summer is coming to a close, as is the peak of the wedding and travel seasons.

But the off-seasons have just as much potential for destination weddings as the summertime.

Destination weddings are most popular during the summer months, but according to Kimberly Richmond of Runaway Bride Destination Weddings, couples can get better rates in certain places if they travel during off-peak seasons.

In this LOVEPOST video, Richmond explains that planning to wed in places like Panama or Paris during the springtime, or the Caribbean in the summer, can save couples money.
