With the number of people who are getting married on a daily basis, you’d think that there’s no significance to the date they chose. But in reality, choosing a wedding day is an important consideration that every bride and groom needs to analyze together. Since they will be celebrating that day for the next years, they need to make sure that the day they choose means something to them.
And indeed, that is usually the way couples choose their wedding day. They try to think of when their anniversary is and decide to use that for their wedding as well. Others even use the wedding date of their parents as a way to commemorate their own special day.
If you are still choosing your wedding date, here are some things you should remember about picking them:
Having a weeding on a holiday weekend has its pros and cons. While you may have an extra day to celebrate, it’s not always a good suggestion to have a wedding on this event. Especially during Valentine’s Day, it’s really not the wisest day to choose for a wedding. Since other people will be eating out and buying a bouquet, you may not have time for a reservation.
Also, you have to consider that you might have some guests who are not willing to skip celebrating a holiday weekend with their own family members. Make sure you check if this is really a good decision for you to get married on.
Religious and Cultural Holidays
Depending on your religion and culture, there will be some dates that you may not be permitted to marry. For one thing, there might not be an officiant to oversee the ceremony. Some examples of these holidays include Palm Sunday, Tisha B’Av, Eid al-Fitr, and many more. You will need to check on this before you decide to get married on any of these dates.
If you are superstitious, you should avoid getting married on Friday the 13th and on a leap year. These two are the dates wherein many consider it’s unlucky to get married on.
If you are still wondering when to get married, make sure that you check the dates you are considering carefully. You should also check with your wedding venue if they will be available on the date that you choose. Call us today to get a head start on your wedding date planning.
