Planning a wedding is no easy feat. Between sticking to a budget, reserving venues, finding vendors, and reminding people about their RSVPs, there are plenty of obstacles to overcome. With so many things to take care of, it’s natural for couples to get hung up on choosing the date for their big day.
How wedding couples choose their wedding date
1. The date of the wedding should match the date of their engagement.
2. The bride and groom rarely concerned themselves with choosing a specific date when they were dating, so if they have their heart set on a particular date, it’s unlikely that they’ll deviate from that plan after getting engaged.
3. Weddings are usually scheduled at least six months in advance. It gives couples enough time to plan their actions and arrange vendors but not so much time that they’re stuck with nothing to do on this particular day; many guests RSVP well ahead of the wedding day, and parties will be started almost a month before the actual wedding.
4. One of the most important things to consider when selecting a wedding date is its proximity to the date of your wedding; if you’re getting married in two years and are still fairly single the year you plan your wedding, perhaps you shouldn’t put it on the same date as your partner’s. It is especially true if either party intends to take an extended honeymoon following their weddings (which brings us to our next point…).
