Choosing a Date for Your Wedding

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing the date of your wedding. We have some tips to help you pick the best day to have one of the best days of your lives.

So you've just gotten engaged (congratulations!) and it is time to set a date and get started on your plans. Just like the wedding itself, the date you choose will be unique to you and your partner for a number of reasons. You may already have a date in mind, but we have a few things to consider as you move forward in your plans to make your date official.


1. What season would you like to be married? Do you have a favorite time of year? If you plan on having an outdoor

wedding, make sure you are thinking about what the weather will be like at the time of year you would like to get married. Does your preferred venue have heating and air conditioning?


2. Are there any dates that are special to you or your partner? Perhaps the wedding anniversary of your parents or grandparents? Or possibly the day you and your partner met, or even the date of your proposal?


3. One of the most important things to consider once you have a date in mind is the availability of the venue you would like to use. Make sure that you check with them as soon as possible to see if they have your date open, or if you can be flexible check their calendar and pick a date based on their availability.


4. If you would like to have a wedding during the holiday season keep in mind that guests may have other engagements during that time. It is a very romantic and beautiful time of year, but it is also a very busy time of year. Also, travel can be more expensive, and your guests may already be tapped out from purchasing holiday presents.


5. You might also want to think about the day of the week you would like to get married. Most people choose a Saturday, but more and more couples are choosing to marry on a Friday or Sunday. If you are open to picking a Friday or Sunday, you have a better chance that your venue will be open, and you could save a lot of money on your booking! And getting married on a Friday can give you the rest of the weekend to hang out with your family and friends, or you could get an extra couple of days for your honeymoon.
