Your wedding day can be a magical event, where you get to marry your soulmate. But, what day of the year will that actually be? There are many wonderful times throughout the year to host a wedding, such as during the Spring, or perhaps a colorful Fall wedding. There are many details that can determine what day would be best for your big day.
How do you know where to begin when setting a date? It may seem difficult to narrow it down to one specific day, but it doesn’t have to be.
Here at I Thee Wed, we know that your wedding date is a crucial detail for your big day. That’s why we have put together a few tips to help you choose your wedding date with ease. If you are still stuck on which date to choose for your own big day, be sure to keep reading to discover more:
· Beware of peak holidays. Your wedding guests are thrilled to watch you tie the knot with your partner. Your great grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, all want to be present for such an important event within your life. If any have to travel, peak holidays can make travel costs, as well a room and board availability, a nightmare. This is also true for your wedding venue. Booking a hotel or other location where travelers will want to go on vacation, can make your own wedding costs rise. Your wedding guests may be planning their own vacation for the year. If you are hosting a sunny Summer wedding, your guests may already have their summer vacation booked, as it is a busy vacation season. Keep in mind the peak holidays when planning your wedding date.
· Keep in mind the seasons. The season can directly influence your wedding day, determining many different details. For example, a Spring wedding may feature many rainy days, which will put a damper on an outdoor wedding, but, it will certainly offer many gorgeous blooms for your décor. A Fall wedding may be a cooler event, and offer gorgeous colors for your wedding décor. A Summer wedding offers the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding, as well as refreshing cuisine options to beat the heat. Whether it be your venue, décor, wedding details, or even cuisine, the season will be responsible for influencing your wedding details.
· Work with your flowers. Your wedding flowers will make up a huge part of your decor, from your bouquets to your centerpieces. You may even have fresh flowers on your wedding cake. If you have your heart set on your favorite flowers, or there is a special meaning behind your chosen flower, perhaps the first flowers your partner ever presented to you, it’s important to plan around their bloom season for availability. While it’s not impossible to get flowers out of season, it will certainly take a toll on your wedding budget.
There are many details that will help you decide on the perfect date for your big day. These are just a few tips to help make your process a little easier. Here at I Thee Wed, we want to help you create an incredible wedding. If you are interested in working with a greater Cincinnati wedding planner, be sure to contact us today.
