Perhaps the very first thing you and your fiancee will do is choose your wedding date. Plan on grabbing a calendar and coming up with at least 2-3 potential wedding dates. Factors to consider when determining when you’ll get hitched include location, season, theme, and scheduling constraints.
The most popular time of year for outdoor weddings is May through October, when the weather is mild in most regions of the United States. December is a very popular month for indoor weddings, due to the festive holidays that occur and a higher chance of families gathering together for them.
The location of your wedding influences not only when you’ll be getting married, but what your overall theme will be. If you love Vermont, the autumn foliage season is a wonderful time to get married. Likewise, if you are both avid skiers, a warm spring skiing day will offer the perfect opportunity for the slopeside ceremony. Destination weddings are a great option for the beach bunny couple, and because of the warmer climate, the wedding date can be set for virtually any time of year.
It’s always a good idea to touch base with both of your families when setting your wedding date. You will want to be sure that everyone you love will be able to attend. Also determine the members of your wedding party and check their availability as well.
When is the most convenient time for you and your future spouse to be able to get away and relax for both the wedding and the honeymoon. Work schedules will definitely play a factor.
