Here are several important things to consider when choosing a date. First, sit down together to determine a priority list. (You both may want to include your families in this conversation, especially if they live out of town.)
The honeymoon: Consider the type of honeymoon you both want. For instance, if you are both sun-worshipers, don't plan a wedding date when your favorite island is experiencing monsoon season.
Work schedules: You both may have work periods when you can't take time off. Select a date when your lives are least demanding.
Holidays and family occasions: Some couples go out of their way to schedule a wedding over a three-day weekend, so everyone has more time together. This idea works best if you send invitations at least eight weeks in advance; otherwise, people might already have plans. ..Consider that traveling MAY be more expensive during holidays, too.
Day of the week: Saturdays are generally the preferred wedding day. That way, out-of-town guests can easily stay overnight. Weekday dates result in some regrets regrets but may offer more availability at some locations or with other wedding professionals
Alternate dates: If possible, have a first-choice date and at least one backup date.
Once the couple decides on a date, the real fun can begin! Work backward from the chosen date to determine a time line of what needs to be done when. Some tasks, such as mailing invitations and picking up the rings, obviously can't be checked off until two months before the Big Day. On the other hand, you both want to take care of other items -- booking a florist and reception site, for example -- and attend a Wedding Expo, at least a year in advance.
