Another short and sweet post, sorry we are so busy! The end of the school year is still not upon us (but is getting ever closer!)
Picking a date can be a hassle, here are a few tips we have heard over the years to help you along in picking the perfect day.
- Find a date that means something to you as a couple.
For Betsy and I, October 10th means a few things to us. One, it is our one year anniversary! Two, it is 10-10-10! How awesome is that?
- Pick a date that is easy to remember.
I (Matt) am personally thankful that it falls between our birthdays. (Hers being the 25th of Sept. and mine the 14th of Oct.)
- Think about days of the week.
Saturdays are not as common as they used to be and having a wedding on a Friday or can cut costs greatly and might help you pick a date that flows more to your liking.
(Something to consider - out of town family may have a harder time attending your wedding if you choose an alternate day of the week.)
- This about months of the year. - May and October and now the two most popular months to get married... so prices increase and if you want to have your wedding at a popular location it may be more difficult to attain.
- Think about seasons. - Flowers are in and out at different times of the year. Outdoor weddings will look very different depending on the season.
Other ways to determine your date -
- If the location is more important to you, their availability might determine your date.
- Length of engagement. - if you would like to get married in May but got engaged in April... maybe a May wedding is not the wisest option. Discuss how long you would like your engagement to be and then decide a date.
- Planning an outdoor wedding. - weather is an issue! Check out this link to find out how to determine whether or not your date will be storm-free.
- Work and School schedules. - find out what days you can get off and when, this might be a large factor in the long run!
Until next time! (When school is out for Matt and close for Bets!)
