Wedding Date
Choosing Your Wedding Date

When setting your date, you may want to consider the following;
THE SEASON
Consider the style of wedding you’d like to have and the right season for it as you begin to think about your wedding date. Likewise, weddings planned on Holidays such as Christmas can work wonderfully well in terms of having loved ones at home. Do consider though that venue fees may be higher.
YOUR BUDGET
Peak season is always going to be more expensive than the end of the off-season. If you’re on a tight budget, consider marrying in the off-season. Also remember that most venues offer an “any day of the week except Saturday” discount. Friday weddings can be ideal.
THE DESTINATION
Has your fantasy always been a destination wedding? You will need to research the weather in your target locations before making any commitments. Also, keep in mind the flexibility of your wedding guests. Age may keep many at home.
YOUR SCHEDULE
Consider the time off you will need for the pre-wedding activities as well as the honeymoon well ahead of time and in consideration of peak times within your profession.
SIGNIFICANT DATES
You may choose to marry on a day that’s significant for you – perhaps the anniversary of the first time you met, or your first date, or on a date that’s special to your family, like your parents’ wedding anniversary, for example. You can explain the significance of your chosen date in your program, on your wedding website, or somewhere else at your wedding.
VENUE AVAILABILITY
Many traditional wedding venues book weddings 12 to 18 months in advance, though non-traditional venues may be more flexible. If you have your heart set on a particular venue, make sure you enquire with enough lead time.
GUEST AND FAMILY SCHEDULES
Although the date must suit both of you first and foremost, you also need to consider other significant family and friend events within the year. The weekend after Dad’s Suprise 60th Birthday Party may put far too much strain on everybody involved. Likewise, you also may need to take into account the health of elderly grandparents and others that you desperately want involved.
VENDOR AVAILABILITY
On occasions, there may be a particular photographer, band or makeup artist you are determined to work with. Do nail their availability early.
PLANNING TIME REQUIRED
Planning a wedding is hard work, and you’ll want to give yourself enough time to do the job right. If you’re planning an intimate, laid-back soiree, you can probably be a little more relaxed, but if you’re hoping for a luxurious event with hundreds of guests, you’ll want to get a running start months in advance.
