The news of an engagement often come as a surprise for most, after the excitement, tears and warm congratulations, then comes the big question; when is the big day? As if you have had time to actually think of the details among all of your emotions and excitements.

 

For some however, marriage has been a long dream with a romantic path and so, for these individuals a plan may already be carefully mapped out, but for others, being asked for your hand in marriage comes as a big shock and so the details are worked out after spreading the news. Even though the question may seem specific, most are wondering how soon to expect the big event so, by giving them an idea of how soon to expect their invitations this may satisfy their curiosity for the time being.

The date you choose will all depend on your preferences for time of year and the type of wedding you intend to hold. For some, a long fairy tail dream is the wedding a bride intends on having. For others, the time, date and type of wedding may not be as important as the life long partnership that is to be shared with the one they love.

Each day without a planned wedding date is a day missed from your planning schedule, remember, nothing can be taken care of before setting a date for your wedding. Anything from décor to catering details need a specific time of year or finalized date in order to proceed with the planning details.

To choose your date ask yourself some simple questions.

  • Do you prefer summer gardens or winter wonderlands?
  • Do you want an outdoor or home affair?
  • How about a scene from a fairy tail, taking off in a wagon pulled by a horse?
  • Will you be comfortable in a long sleeve or sleeveless gown?
  • Are outdoor pictures important to you?
     

Here are some more things to consider before setting a date.

  • How much time will you need to plan your wedding?
  • Will the reception site be available for your desired time of year?
  • Are there any other events taking place around the same time of year that you are considering ? (another wedding, family vacations, graduations etc.)
     

Be considerate to your close family and wedding party during your decision making and confirm there wont be any inconvenient situations you can avoid ahead of time.

If you want to avoid the busy season these are the months you will want to work around; August, June and September are the three most popular months during the warmer season. December is often a busy time as well due to the festiveness of the season with decorations and lighting to brighten up the spirits.

Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are the three most common booking days for weddings, times are often set for 11:00am, 2:00pm, or 4:00pm.

Considering a holiday wedding? Well while the idea is great there are some pros and cons that need to be considered before booking a date. Long weekends such as Labor Day, thanksgiving, Canada Day and others tend to lean on the positive side, giving you and your guests that extra day to rest or sort out any last minute situations. On the downside, what are the possibilities your guest don't already have obligations on holidays like thanksgiving?

Christmas is a wonderful festive time of year and while the spirits are high the season brings the warm family feeling close to our hearts. Keep in mind that it is also a very busy and stressful time of year for most, between cooking, shopping, visiting and wrapping gifts, it is hard to find time to enjoy the thoughts of your long awaited planned event.

Religious days to avoid.
If you or your spouse are Jewish, there are religious restrictions you should be aware of, here are a few; No weddings are permitted on Sabbath (Friday evening to Saturday 1/2 hour after sun down), there are also major holidays that you should avoid if your spouse or a close friend is Jewish. Here is a list of the holidays best to avoid:

  • Rosh Hashanah
  • Yom Kipper
  • Passover
  • Shavuot
  • Sukkot
