Planning a wedding can very frequently feel like a true frenzy. In between choosing the colors and choosing the wedding gown though, it is important that you do everything in an organized way. And, as all specialists advise, choosing a wedding date is one of the very first steps in planning a successful wedding. How do you do this though? How do you set a date for the Big Day? Here are some of the things you might want to take into consideration:


  • Think of the dates that have been important in the development of your relationship: the day you first met, the day you first dated or even the day he asked you to marry him. Also, if you agree on this, your parents’ wedding date or any other important celebration in your lives may make for a wonderful choice as well. Keep in mind that your venue might not be available on that exact day – but, in general, you can get quite close to it.
  • Aside from the fact that your wedding’s season will create a certain kind of atmosphere around the Big Day, it should also suit your personality and your wedding’s style. For instance, if you want a fresh, vibrant wedding, spring and early summer will always be great choices. Also, take into consideration the fact that some of times of the year are less expensive than others. For example, summers tend to be a peak wedding season – and this means prices will go up as well. On the other hand though, February-April is usually considered an “off-season” time of the year – and this means your wedding venue and vendors will most likely offer discounts too.
  • Off-limit days. Talk to your close circle of friends and family members and ask them what days they would not be able to attend the wedding. Also, take into consideration potential religious celebrations that forbid weddings to take place during certain days of the week/year and take into consideration those times of the year when everyone is extremely busy at work (the weeks before tax day for example).

Once you have a better idea of when you would like your wedding to take place, stop by Wedding Day Exposition and pick your favorite vendors. With your ideas and their help, your wedding day will be absolutely unforgettable!
