We always water a summer wedding. We originally picked July but we didn’t book the venue soon enough. Then we picked a month without a holiday or events, then we picked a date between holidays. We ended on June 12th!
Really based off venue availability and weather preference was a big deal breaker. I always wanted a summer wedding so the only date available for my venue was August 30th, otherwise it would have been late September, which is more of a fall vibe to me
My fiancé and I also are recently engaged. We knew we wanted October because we both love fall along with the cooler weather and scenery. From there, we went with a Friday because it was cheaper. The date itself has a nice ring to it too, which was also a plus.
My fiance wanted our wedding to be close to his birthday, but I suggested that did not be on his birthday so we picked a date close but not right on top of his birthday. We kind of just mutually decided on a good season and when we'd like it to be. Always think about like do you want it to be cold outside you know warm outside or in between, that's kind of how I would recommend rolling it out and then from there just kind of pick your favorite time of year and go with it.
I first picked my favorite season(winter) and realized it was special to me because it's the season we fell in love! I remember hot cocoa, fireplace dates, cold air on our hot cheeks, and holding hands like crazy cuz they were cold! I get so excited for winter time that I knew I wanted my wedding to be a winter one! Our anniversary is December 4th so how cool would it be to have our wedding on that day too?
Consider the venue you want to get married at first. Think of popular times of the year that you like (Anniversary Date & etc.) or feel comfortable in (SUMMER or FALL) select the month then pick a date. Remember if the venue is not selected, you have no wedding date!
My fiance is a professor so we looked at when his breaks were. We didn't want to have an engagement over a year so we decided to get married around his spring break. There were only a couple of Saturdays that worked in that time, and so then we looked at my menstrual schedule, as I don't want to be on my period the day of the wedding, and that narrowed it down to one date!
We first decided what season we wanted, then picked June because July and August are hot and stormy where we live, and since our birthdays are June 22 and 25 we looked for Fridays and Saturdays around then and even 18 months out had trouble since June is so popular i guess!
My fiancé and I are getting married on 10/9/21. I wanted to finish my masters degree which means we had to set a date after May of 2021. But also our date mixes our anniversaries. We began dating on 10/25/17 and got engaged on 9/9/18
