It’s time to set the date for your wedding! While choosing your wedding date may seem like it should be a simple task, but there is a list of factors you and your fiance should consider before setting anything in stone. Until you decide when you would like to get married, you can’t commit to anything. You might be asking yourself, “How do I pick a date that works for everyone and is still special to me?” or “How do I even start with this decision?”

First Step in Wedding Planning

You can’t have a wedding without a venue, and you can’t reserve a venue until you have dates that work best for both of you. Have 3 – 5 dates rated from your top pick down. This information will be beneficial as you start calling churches and event venues. 

What type of weather do you want?

The most popular months to get married are June, September, and October. The weather is most pleasant in early summer and fall. Remember there can always be some unseasonably strange weather, plan accordingly. Consider the style of wedding you want and the right season for it as you begin to think about your wedding date.

Keep your careers in mind

You should consider any job-related conflicts that might arise before finalizing a wedding date. If you are a teacher, when are the best times to be on a honeymoon? If you are a CPA, tax season would not be a good time. If you try to plan your wedding around the schedules of your friends and family members, you’ll drive yourself crazy. 

Know Your Budget

If you are on a tight budget you will want to avoid busy seasons. Marrying on a Friday, Sunday, or during the workweek can be much cheaper. It can be difficult for your guests during the week, but if you’re having a small wedding and give them plenty of notice, your friends and family will understand.

Give Yourself Time, Don’t Rush

Anything is possible. Planning your dream wedding in record time is possible, but there might be areas that you will have to sacrifice. Keep in mind the cost that it will take to ensure that your celebration can be pulled off quickly. Make sure you give yourself enough time to plan for the things that are truly important to you.
