Some know exactly what day they want to get married. Maybe it’s an anniversary the couple shares, or a special date from some point in their lives. Others, have no idea where to start. I’m here to give you some ways to help narrow down your decision.
First, think about your absolute dream wedding. Ask your future hubby what he has in mind, as well. What details are most important to you? Is it on the beach? Are the leaves changing colors? Do you care how warm or cool it is outside? Questions like these will help you narrow down what time of year you’re thinking. Keep in mind, the most expensive times to get married are May, June, July and September. So, if you’re focusing on your budget and where you can cut expenses, try looking into a less expensive month.
Another way to narrow down some dates within the season you choose is to look at holidays and ask family. Ask your family that you absolutely must have at your wedding, what days to stay away from, or which dates would best fit them. Think about holidays around this time and whether it would be easier, or harder, for family and friends to take off for the weekend.
Your next step is to find the venue. Now that you have narrowed down the time of the year you want to be married, and nixed a few dates, you can approach the venue to see when they have availability. Finding your venue is a very important task and often isn’t a quick process. Once you have chosen the venue, talk to the coordinator and give them your top two or three dates that you and your fiance have agreed on. You hope for your first choice, but have a plan B and C, just in case they are already booked!
