Tips for Scheduling Your Wedding Date

March 7, 2016


Getting engaged is a truly exciting time for couples! And perhaps we’re biased, but the planning itself is pretty fun too.

However, before you start securing vendors and picking out decor you have to pick a date to say, “I do.” Setting a date is so much more than selecting a number and month off your calendar. There are many things to consider from the season to the day of the week. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you schedule the best date for your Special Day!

The time of the year is a major factor to consider when scheduling your wedding date. If you’re on a tight budget, having an off-season wedding is certainly beneficial. During the off-season, you may find additional savings for not hosting your event during the peak times of the year.

It’s also important to factor in the weather and seasonality of your dream florals. Importing spring florals for your winter wedding is going to put a dent in your budget, while sticking to in-season blooms will save you some change.

Aside from the season, you should also choose the actual day of the week your wedding will take place wisely. Saturday is most popular for various reasons, including that your guests get to enjoy the whole day without having to worry about slouching into work the next morning. While Saturday celebrations come with great perks, remember that they will also come with a price tag.

Above all else, do your research! Find out what’s happening near your venue on the day of your wedding. Find out if there will be any marathons or other major events are taking place on your potential wedding date. Events such as these come with heavy traffic and limited parking, which are headaches you won’t want to deal with on your wedding day.

Strategically picking a wedding date is the first step in getting your wedding off the ground. Think carefully and you’ll be on your way to a successful walk down the aisle!
