You might be tempted to think picking the right wedding date is as simple as pointing a calendar. However, the (sad!) truth is that things tend to get more complicated than that when brides and grooms-to-be get down to action and start planning their Big Day.
How do you choose the perfect date for the perfect Big Day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Take into consideration the basic weather information. What kind of weather are you expected to experience during particular times of the year? How will this differ if you want to plan your wedding abroad? Your wedding date dictates the kind of event you will have – so don’t rush into making a decision.
- Furthermore, remember that the day of the week you choose can have a huge impact. For instance, a Sunday wedding is very likely to cost a lot less than a Saturday event – and it also means you will most likely have to set your wedding towards the beginning and middle of the day (ergo, less alcohol, less dancing, and a different type of décor).
- Think of the holidays. Sure, a Christmas wedding sounds amazing – but how many of your guests will actually be able to attend? The same goes for the majority of the national and largely-celebrated holidays in the United States…
- Make it meaningful. If possible, try to find a date that is meaningful for you – the day you first met, the day you first dated, or even one of your birthdays. You might not be able to coordinate this with venue and vendor availability, but if it’s close enough it will still add a beautiful layer of romanticism and sentimentalism to the entire Big Day.
