6 Tips for Choosing the Month for Your Wedding

You’re engaged. That is awesome! Now you have to choose a wedding date. It’s a big decision. So here are some tips that you can use for choosing the month you and your fiancé will be married in.

1. Think About Your Jobs

The first thing you want to think about is the jobs that you and your fiancé have. For example, if one of you is an accountant you don’t want to be married around tax time since you’re often very busy. If you’re a teacher, you’ll be busy during the school year, so it may be hard to take the time off during the school year for your honeymoon.

2. Think About Holidays

A lot of people like getting married in December, but that is also when a lot of people are busy with Christmas and other winter holidays. It may be hard to find a date that is convenient for everyone, between holiday parties, Christmas shopping and other activities. The same thing with Thanksgiving. Of course, having a wedding around the holidays could work to your advantage if people are going to be in the area.

3. Think About the Weather

Another problem with getting married during the winter months is that is when the weather can be the nastiest. Not only do you have to worry about yourself and your wedding party but you have to worry about your guests, particularly the older ones. If you’re in a state like Florida, you have to worry about hurricane season. So that’s something to think about when you’re choosing your wedding month.

4. Think About the Flowers You Want

What kinds of flowers do you want for your wedding? Obviously based on the month you choose for your wedding, they may not be available. So think about the flowers that you want and find out when they are available during the year.

5. Think About Your Budget

If you have a smaller budget for your wedding, you might not want to choose one of the big wedding months. That’s when the prices are going to be highest for vendors, halls, etc. You also may not get your first choice for wedding dates because the vendors are booked. So if you are trying to save money, you might want to choose a month in which many weddings don’t happen so vendors are happy to get business.

6. Think About Your Attendants

Is one of your friends who you’d like to be a bridesmaid pregnant? It’s a good idea to wait until the baby is a couple of months older before you have your wedding so she’s comfortable leaving the baby with a babysitter if you’re having a child-free wedding.

These are the six things that you should think about when you are choosing a month for your wedding. They’ll help you to choose the best wedding month for you and your spouse to be and help you have the wedding of your dreams. There’s a lot that goes into wedding planning, but finding the right wedding month doesn’t have to be difficult.
