Choosing a date may not be as simple as it sounds. In fact the date is the pillar for so many other key steps in the planning process….Meaning that you may not be able to confirm your location, Officiant, and other vendors unless you have a date. And most importantly the date also affects your budget.

Various other factors come into play when deciding on a date, however I’ll let you in on some general considerations.

Remember that childhood dream you had of your wedding? That discussion that you and your now fiancé have outlined about your wedding day? Your best friend in NY who you would must walk you down the aisle who can only get vacation in the Summer time?……… I think you’ve already begun to see where I am heading with this. The question is “What do you consider the most important thing about your wedding day?” There is no right answer. Whatever you consider should be your first consideration. Will Cherry Blossoms be available in August? I would like a beach wedding, what will the weather be like in January? If the only place you will get married is that Papillote Wilderness and Spa where you’ve spent a romantic weekend, you need to find out if the date is available before you do any other planning.

You may be lucky and wind up with your choice of dates within the time frame of the vendors etc. However I suggest that you check out the second thing on your priority list (probably it’s the photographer whom just absolutely love). Also run your dates by your family members and/or your closest friends before making a final decision.
