Choosing a wedding date is one of the most important planning decisions that you’ll have to make as a couple. For every couple, the process is completely unique and involves a lot of tiffs too. We hope that these ideas can help you plan your perfect date, to say “I do“.
Holiday weddings can be super fun but choosing Christmas, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, and Diwali can cost you a bomb.
For example, the price of roses during Valentine’s Day is sky high, so having them at your big day could really put a dent in your budget. Moreover, Hotels, flights and car rentals can all get very expensive, especially during a the holiday season.
The other big factor to consider is your guests. As much as they love you, do they really want to spend a major holiday celebrating your wedding and running around You? Think about it.
The most popular months to get married are October, November and December and it’s no surprise why. Choose a weather that is comfortable to you and the guests. Who would want to wear a heavy wedding dress in mid-summer? Think about your guests and their comfort level. Check the weather records before you go ahead deciding the date.
If you want a particular venue then start working on it immediately. Choosing a date becomes easy once you decide your venue. Many traditional wedding venues book weddings 10 to 12 months in advance. You can explain the significance of your chosen Venue on you wedding website, wedding invitation or somewhere else at your wedding.
Budget may affect your choice of date. June, September, October and December are the most popular momths to marry, so prices are inevitably higher. But if, for example, you’re planning a wedding in January or March it may cost less because 20 other couples aren’t lined up behind you. Days of the week also matter: Saturday nights carry a hefty price tag, but marry during the week and the world is your oyster. Avoid days like Monday and Tuesdays. Try going for a Friday or Wednesday.
