You may find that your chosen date will be dictated by the availability of your dream venue

Choosing the Season – Think about the weather, your wedding photography and the venue when it comes to marrying in the spring, summer, autumn or winter months.  If you’re getting married during the summer, you can consider different styles of venues than if you were to tie the knot in the winter.

Choosing the Wedding Date – Before you finally set the date for your ‘Wedding Day’ there are few things to think about especially if you want to be sure that your family and friends you want to invite to see you say “I do” will be more likely to share this very momentous occasion will be with you.

Birthdays – If you have an idea of a date in mind, check to see that it doesn’t conflict with a special family birthday that may also have a party.  You may not want your big day to fall on the same day as your fathers 60th or your grandmothers 80th.

World Events  – It’s always a good idea to see if there are any major events happening around the area that may effect your decision.  Such as a major sporting event or the Olympics, bank holiday or a national celebration.

Inviting Friends & Family Abroad– If you have family travelling from overseas it’s a good idea to check what dates they can travel and the cost it will incur if you plan to marry in a peek holiday season. Make sure you give them enough time for them to save up for their flights.
