Setting the Wedding Date

The choice of the wedding date depends on many factors, but ideally it should be about one to two years after your engagement so that you have plenty of time to prepare.

Firstly you need to choose a location and season as it sets the mood of your event. While spring is great for countryside locations and summer months are ideal for beach weddings, you can choose any cosy indoor space during autumn and winter. Couples on a tight budget should consider getting married during off-peak season when you can find affordable packages.

Once you narrow down your choice and focus on a specific time of year you should look through the calendar and make a list of dates you should avoid such as your friends’ and family members’ birthdays as well as public and school holidays. You should also check if your important guests have any other plans such as travel or attending other events.

If you have a preferred location or a favourite service provider you should check if they are available or, alternatively pick a day and work with venues and wedding services which are not already booked. It is also important to think about weather conditions, especially if you are planning a destination wedding or prefer to tie the knot in a gorgeous open-air space.
