There are only a handful of days which can impact your life at large in a huge way, and your wedding date is surely one of such dates. It is a day that is marked in red in your calendars and will be celebrated year after year. It is a day you will be sharing with family and friends and retelling the story behind. So it is only natural that once that all-important question is popped, you and your partner sit and search for that perfect date. The date which is perfect for a wedding and a date which is fun to remember and sounds and looks perfect on paper! People like to consider various different factors when they decide on a date. Some like their wedding date to fall on a holiday, some explicitly do not, some like it to be astrologically and celestially perfect, palindrome-aesthetic, and some like to carry a bit of luck on their side as they say “I do”. Some of the deciding factors in choosing the right wedding date are:
Season: The first step toward choosing that perfect wedding date lies in finding that perfect season for you to host your wedding in. This will definitely help you narrow down your search to a couple of months in the calendar. Do you want a white wedding with freshly snowed landscapes outside and warm coziness indoors? Do you want a spring garden wedding? Or did you always dream of a summer beach wedding? Once you decide on the season, we are closer to finding the perfect date. The fall season tends to be the most popular as the days are perfect and the scenery beautiful. Summer comes to a close second.
Special dates: Another perfect choice for your wedding date would be a specific special day for you and your fiancé. Maybe it's the day you both met each other or started seeing each other officially. Choosing a meaningful day as your wedding date makes it easy to remember and also a lot more special. Also, you can go for creative dates that either mix both of your birthdays or carry with it a cool story or have some significance in your lives. Also, lucky dates, full moons, supermoons, etc. are some of the things taken into account while choosing that perfect date.
Budget and availability: The final thing to consider is the budget that you are working with and the availability of wedding venues. A wedding in fall is more sought after, hence the prices are hiked up and the chances for availability on the popular dates are slim. So maybe you can consider picking another season. But if the budget isn't an issue, you can go in and get that date, but the venue is still a concern. It is a good idea to probably keep an open mind about the venue or the date because of the chances that while one might work out in your favor, others wouldn't. Or if you plan way ahead or you are just lucky, you can just get the venue you love at the exact date you have your heart set on!
