How to choose your wedding date

Choosing your wedding date is one of the most important decisions in the planning of every wedding, and it is the one that will most affect every other aspect of your most beautiful day.

You probably already have a vision of the church in which you will want to walk the aisle, or an idea for your wedding cake in mind; but it is definitely better to have some dates in mind before even choosing the style or theme of the wedding.

Taking things slow is definitely one of the biggest benefits you can choose to have. Planning a wedding with the right timing will allow you to have all the elements you want, without having to give up something because you have decided to get married in a couple of months. You can choose the location that best represents you without having to choose from the few remaining free for that date and search for the best services.

Traditionally, the months in which you get married most frequently go from June to September, but the spring and autumn seasons are also very popular. Whatever time of year you prefer for your wedding, be sure to include some comfort accessories for the guests in your budget, whether they are fans to help them fight the heat or stoles to protect them from the cold.

Imagine with your future groom during your wedding: what do you see? A garden in full bloom? The warm autumn colors? Or the magic of Christmas? This vision will help you select at least one season of the year. Even if the mood of the wedding starts to take shape after you and your boyfriend have chosen a date, it is important to have a general idea of the style you want to give to the event. When the time comes to get your hands on the design of a wedding, the time of year in which it will take place becomes crucial, especially if you have in mind to create themed, original and personalized settings. These inclinations in the type of style you want to give the wedding will naturally lead you to make a choice about the maximum period in which to set the date.

Getting married in January or March (as well as getting married on a midweek day instead of a weekend), could prove to be a great advantage from an economic point of view: catering, locations and suppliers often apply discounts on the services offered to couples who choose to organize their reception in months that are generally little “demand” in the wedding market. This way you may be able to allocate a larger percentage of your budget to flowers, decorations, sets and accessories to set up your reception. Think of a warm shawl to offer your guests to go outside and admire the fireworks you have planned for the cutting of the cake, or an unusual location for hot chocolate, which warms up and entertains the guests of a winter wedding.

Think about it before setting your wedding date for Christmas, New Year, Ferragosto, Easter and all the other religious and pagan holidays. Guests may not be thrilled, as these holidays often correspond to business holidays, holidays, and trips to visit the family. The risk is that you will receive many defections from people you would have wished you had at your side on your wedding day. An advantageous precaution that you can have is also to probe the ground with families and friends to see if there will be baptisms, degrees and other important parties in anticipation, so as not to run into unpleasant situations.

It is undeniable that getting married on the very day you and your boyfriend met, or the anniversary of your first kiss is the most romantic can exist. Find a date that identifies your story. It would be nice to be able to choose your wedding date based on a special day for you, a number that has a value or binds you to something important or simply because it is your lucky or favorite number, but this is only possible by moving far in advance.

If you have a very special trip in mind and want to leave for your honeymoon right after your wedding, then you’ll also have to consider the seasonality of your favorite destinations. Also, remember that some locations are climate-prohibitive at certain times of the year, while others are annoyingly crowded during the classic summer season.
