Hi brides to be! I was wondering if you guys put alot of thought into picking a date to get married or did you just pick whatever date that was available? Or did you just knew what season you wanted? We picked a day that was cheaper for us and whatever was available and after we realized that our wedding falls on Mother's day but it's too late to change it now.
We picked ours based on the location's special deal for winter weddings. That narrowed down the months, we picked February because we thought it might be easier for our out of town family to come into town. Narrowing down the Sat. was funny because we really didn't care about the day. We decided not to make it on a long weekend and then I looked at my work schedule and based it off of that haha. My boss isn't in the week leading up to the wedding so less stress for me and I can take some time off for beauty appointments and such.
We picked our date according to the season we wanted either late Spring or late Summer and also by the venue availability since I absolutely wanted our reception to be at that specific place.
I always wanted to get married in October because of the colours of the leaves and how the colour purple would look. Then with how hard it was to attempt to get time off for work for a family vacation we decided to change it to mid August. And than we found out that my FH's cousin was getting married on the same day and booked the same caterer, etc and had to switch the date. I liked the original August date 08/18/18 as it looked wonderful on paper and 8's if you look up the number is pretty significant and there are a lot of 8's in our life. So now its 08/04/18. As my future husband puts it I am marrying the man of my dreams 2 weeks earlier which is true. Thankfully the caterer is still available and our venues which we haven't made up our mind about his parents or my parents place our both still available. The tent situation we are still working out as well. Lots of fun! Good luck on the wedding planning.
We knew we wanted late August - early September, and we knew the venue we wanted. When we went to book it, we just kind of picked it by random! The only thing we wanted to stay away from was booking on a long weekend
We wanted to get married in the summer, since there are lots of out of town/province guests. The venue I really wanted had only one Saturday available. We could've chosen a Friday or Sunday, but we thought Saturday was better for those who would just come for the weekend.
We wanted to get married in the fall. I would have liked October, but my daughter and her husband were attending his sister's wedding in England at that time. The venue had September 24th available and being a Sunday, it was less expensive. We chose that day.
We knew we wanted to get married in late summer/early fall but were keeping it open. When we found the venue we wanted, they only had three weekends left in August & September 2018 so we choose one of them!
Our date was mainly chosen because of our venue! We both knew we wanted to have our wedding late summer/early fall. The corn fields aren't plowed yet around the end of August and my FH thought it would be nice to have the crops up for our day! So i told him to just pick a date in August and he picked the 24th !
At the end of the day pick whichever date you guys want! It's your day ! If there is a cheaper day go with that too. Whatever you guys want !
