Choosing a Wedding Date


Congratulations on your engagement! Now that you are engaged, everyone is anxiously waiting for you to announce the date. Choosing a wedding date can be easy for some, while others let a year slip by without being able to set the date in stone. There are many factors to consider when planning the date of your wedding.


Choosing a Wedding Date that is Special

Choosing a wedding date that is special can be a task weighted with significant importance, yet very easy to do for most. Think about your anniversary, the date you got engaged or another date that means something to both of you. It could be the date of your first kiss or the date of your first date. That date can be very easy to imagine for most, making choosing a wedding date that is special an easy task. Now you just need to choose a wedding venue to accommodate your dream wedding on your special date.

Choosing a Wedding Date on the Weekend or Weekday

What happens when our special date falls on a weekday? Choosing a wedding date that is special might mean choosing a weekday wedding. Statistically, more and more couples are choosing weekday weddings. Crystal Ballroom wedding venues book weddings 365 days a year, and their calendar indicates that more couples are choosing to book their weddings during the weekdays than ever before.


There are many advantages to choosing a wedding date during the week. Rates at wedding venues can be significantly cheaper during the week than on the weekend. A weekday wedding occurs on a day that sets the stage for travel to a weekend honeymoon. The special date with significant importance often falls on a weekday, allowing couples to celebrate on the date that means the most. Some vendors have special weekday rates that can offer additional savings. Overall, there seems to be a shift in the trends when it comes to choosing a wedding date.

Choosing a Wedding Date by Season

What is your favorite season? Many couples are choosing a wedding date by season. It is not difficult to imagine a summer wedding in the sand or a fall wedding outdoors. Winter weddings can be romantic winter wonderland themes. Summer and spring create beautiful outdoor wedding scenery and whimsical indoor spaces with flowers and corresponding décor. There are three months in each season, providing space for choosing a wedding date in your favorite season.


Deciding whether you want an indoor or outdoor wedding can be the first step towards choosing a wedding date by season. Different seasons might affect your wedding attire, such as whether you have a long sleeve dress or daring off the shoulder gown with an open back. When choosing a wedding date by season, research the weather and all the elements that would contribute to your theme.


Choosing a Wedding Date by Location

Choosing a wedding date by location requires that you find the wedding venue of your dreams, and pick a date based upon venue availability, budget and travel. Once you find your dream wedding venue, you can easily coordinate a date with the planners at the wedding venue. You will want to consider whether weekday weddings are cheaper, and which dates during the year will give you the most savings. Also consider travel arrangements to the venue, for you and your guests. You will want to keep certain holidays in mind that might limit travel, and avoid expensive peak travel times.
