01 Jul Trying To Decide On A Wedding Day? Here Are Some Of The Things You Need To Consider
It may not seem like it, but finding a date for your big day isn’t always the easiest decision to make.
You are going to need to take quite a few things into consideration, these things can all have an impact on the date that you end up choosing.
But what are they?
What are the things that you are going to need to take into account when picking a wedding date?
When it comes to planning your wedding day, one of the first things you need to think about and consider is your budget.
It is all too easy to get carried away when thinking about your big day, only to find that you simply are not going to be able to afford it.
The budget that you set can have a huge influence on when you book your wedding.
Peak wedding season, May to September is going to be more expensive to book a wedding in, whilst October to April is usually much cheaper, but of course, you could be taking a risk with the weather.
You also need to think about whether or not you want to get married on a weekend, as this is another more expensive option then getting married on a weekday.
Events and holidays (both family and national)
Of course, your wedding day should be the event of the year to everyone involved, however, it can often be the case that other events and holidays can clash.
This could be family events, or perhaps something that you have no control over such as a sporting event or a national holiday.
Consider the main events that are likely to crop up during the 12 months that you are looking at, you should try to avoid the main celebrations such as Christmas and Easter, as well as aiming to avoid anyone’s birthdays too.
You also need to think about whether there is going to be a World Cup or perhaps Olympics during your window, as this could also impact on your guest list.
We don’t have much control over the weather here in the UK, even in the Summer months there is still a chance of rain.
However, if you are keen to avoid a soaking wet wedding, then you may want to take a look at a mid-summer date.
That said, if you are concerned about it being too hot, then perhaps you are happier to go for an off-season wedding day, you might just have to deal with the possibility of a downpour causing somewhat of an issue for an outdoor venue.
These are just some of the things that you may need to consider when taking the first steps to planning our wedding day.
The main aim is to always take your time picking a date, and be prepared that you may have to move it slightly or have a larger window to choose from, as you never know whether or not your venue of choice is going to be free, and the last thing that you are going to want is to miss out on your perfect venue, because you have your mind set on one particular day over any others.
