How to Choose a Wedding Date
When it comes to selecting the perfect day for your vows, there are several factors to consider. Whether you’re getting married on a Saturday or even mid-week on a Wednesday, not all dates are one and the same. When deciding how to choose a wedding date, consider a few things like conflicting events, the weather (yes, it’s possible to anticipate!), and the time of year.
- Yes, you can plan for the weather ahead of your ceremony! Even if you’re getting married indoors, bad weather can put a damper on your day. Consult a Farmer’s Almanac¬†to get an idea of what the weather will look like on your selected date. With weather forecasts that average an 80% accuracy rate, the Almanac will help you dodge unexpected heat waves and thunderstorms.
- It may sound silly, but make sure your date isn’t already claimed by a friend’s wedding. Your friend may have beaten you to that perfect date, and if you share a friend group, you’d hate to put your guests in an uncomfortable position by making them choose! To keep the peace, circle back to your calendar to pick a date that works for everyone.
- When narrowing down dates, it’s more important to make sure the venue is free than whether or not a preferred vendor¬†is available. Unless your vendor is an absolute must, get the important parts out of the way before worrying about your caterer or DJ.
- If you choose our waterfront venue in Destin, you’ll have the opportunity to capture some truly magical moments on our dock. That being said, you’ll want to choose a date – and a time! – that will make the most of the “golden hour.” This is typically the hour before the sun sets, when the sky is truly beautiful and everything seems to glow. Be sure to plan accordingly with the date and the time when thinking about all of these moments you’ll be dying to capture.
