Planning Ahead

So there are so many things to consider when picking a wedding date. Sure, you may have a perfect date in your head but you must realistically consider other events hapenning besides your wedding... For instance, a beautiful Fall wedding sounds great in theory, but what happens if it falls on the biggest local college football game? Would you really want to be stuck in traffic with angry fans trying to get to a tailgate on your wedding day? You don't want your guests showing up hours late to your ceremony or reception.

Traffic isn't the only thing that worries us. Big weekend events call for higher hotel prices, higher rental rates, as well as increased package prices for some vendors.

Every season has it's downfalls. Winter brings in corporate holiday parties and increase chance of snow storms up north. Springs and Summers brings local community events like art festivals, local shows, and not to mention hot, rainy seasons.

So when picking a date, plan ahead! Consider all of your options including community events to ensure that the day runs smoothly!

Oh yeah, and unless you want to pay four times as much for flowers, try to avoid mothers day (the day after our wedding, doh!) or Valentine's day!

I should also say that I could hardly find a florist willing to order me flowers, let alone make me bouquets - luckily my bridesmaids and I made them ourselves and they turned out lovely.

You're right! We're sticking with early spring.. here in Florida it rains so much in the summer and it can get awfully hot :)
