Choosing the Perfect Date for your wedding
He popped the question. And of course you said I do.
You’ve got the perfect groom and you may even have an idea of where you want to have your wedding. But the biggest question is when? Picking a date for your “big day” really sets it in stone. So choosing the perfect date for your wedding should be carefully selected. Here are a few things to consider when choosing.
Every couple has a handful of guests that must be in attendance. Check with their schedules for any conflicts. Be choosy in who you ask about availability. People can go overboard. Remember this is your wedding and you may not satisfy every one’s needs.
Lucky or Symbolic Numbers
When picking your date you may choose a special day like when you first met or the day of your first date. Others look for dates that look great on paper like 2/20/2020, or clean numbers like 5/25.
The most popular months for weddings are June, August, September and October. Keep in mind that many venues increase their rates in these months and availability could be limited.
If you are planning to have your wedding out of town or would like to have a destination wedding, you have to choose wisely. Giving your guests plenty of time to make arrangements for travel is essential.
Depending on your theme, it may be appropriate to have your wedding during a specific season. If you want an island themed wedding or your wedding color is bright, then it would be most appropriate to have a wedding in the summer.
Dates to Avoid
There are some dates that just cause conflict and should be avoided. For instance, having a wedding in the middle of tax season may be a bit overwhelming for some. Especially if you are an accountant. Also, keep in mind of religious holidays and dates. For example, having a wedding on Friday may not work for the Jewish religion as Shabbat is observed on that day. For Muslims, Ramadan is celebrated around June, so it may be beneficial to either avoid that time all together, or make sure you are having a wedding at night.
