Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Date
Wedding season usually refers to later spring through early fall, a time when the weather is generally beautiful and light is plenty. However, lovely weddings have happened in “off” season, which is, namely, winter. Here are a few things to consider when choosing your wedding date.
One big detail would be price. The later spring through early fall time frame means fair sailing, but also comes with a heftier price tag, while winter weddings may be less expensive, as demand is lower. In off-season, you can save on expenses such as the venue and the catering. But, if you do choose a date that falls within high demand, you can see if the venue has different rates for certain days of the week. On less popular days, they may have an adjusted fee.
Another thing to consider is the weather and scenery. Do you love lush landscapes? Are beautiful bouquets of summer flowers important to you? Will a little rain dampen your spirits? Or do you dream of a winter wonderland? Think about what you’re envisioning in terms of the venue: indoor or outdoor? Weather and scenery definitely set a tone for the day, so if you want sunny skies and a warm breeze, you probably want to think about a tropical destination or pick a summery day to say “I do.”
Finally, pick a date that works well in conjunction with your honeymoon, if you are taking one. Avoid any significant holidays (unless you love holiday themes), and think ahead to make sure there are no work conflicts. If there are some extremely special people in your life that absolutely have to be there, make sure they’ll be available on your date, too. Then, block off that time and get to planning the details.
