Are you planning an outdoor wedding? One of the very first things you and your significant other will need to do is settle on a date for your special occasion. There’s a lot to consider; many things can greatly impact your decision. So don’t wait until the last minute to begin discussing this ever-so-important element of your wedding. To help you get started, here are several great tips for picking the perfect date for your big day!
1. Start by Daydreaming
You’ve likely been dreaming about your wedding day for a long time, so this part should be easy. Start the date selection process by thinking about and visualizing what you want your wedding and reception to look like. Is it sunny and warm, or cool and cast in a beautiful sunset? Knowing what your ideal wedding looks like, will help determine the time of year you select.
2. Consider the Weather
When deciding to go with an outdoor venue for your wedding, it’s always important to remember the weather. When is it hottest? Are there months that will be too cold or that have a high chance of inclement weather? Avoid times of year that often have poor weather conditions and always have a backup plan if it rains.
3. Avoid Major Holidays
Choosing a major holiday for your wedding date might be tempting. You may be thinking that a lot of people will have time off and won’t have to request vacation time to attend. This isn’t always the case. Many people reserve holidays like Christmas and New Years for family. You don’t want to compete against other obligations.
4. Don’t Rush
Don’t pick a date that’s too soon. A lot goes into planning a wedding. Not allowing enough time to prepare can make the process extremely stressful. Think seriously about all that needs to be done and how long it will take you.
