Don’t Have a Date Yet? Here’s What You Need to Know

October 1, 2018

Picking a wedding date might seem like a no-brainer but there are actually a lot of factors to take into account before sending out those invites. When choosing, pick at least two to three possible dates, to be safe. The reason why you have to choose several dates is to ensure that you have plenty of choices should your number one preferred date isn’t available. To help you decide about the date options, we have listed some things that you have to consider.

Time of the year

Regardless of what season you want to get married, thinking about the time of the year can help you narrow down your options. Take note that the season sets the tone, theme and décor of your wedding, especially if you live in an area that experiences four seasons.


The weather can impact your ceremony, reception, transportation and guests’ well-being. To have an idea of what the weather could be like on your big day, research on average temperatures and rain or snowfall over the last few years. This will help you make adjustments and modifications based on potential weather issues.

Remember important days

When choosing your wedding day, avoid picking a national holiday or during a holiday weekend. Many of your guests might not be able to attend due to travel or family obligations. Sporting events, major conventions and other local events that cause heavy traffic and high-priced hotels should be avoided as well.

Consider schedules

Consider your schedule and the schedules of your family and friends, whom you would like to attend as you walk down the aisle. To be able to enjoy the wedding, choose a date that’s appropriate for you, your fiancé and your guests.

Venue availability

Once you’ve narrowed down your options based on the factors mentioned, ask the venues for their availability on those dates. If it is available on your preferred date, book it immediately as venues, especially those in high demand will be booked up very quickly.
