Selecting a wedding date for your event can be one of the easiest parts of wedding planning!
Here's a tip our trendy brides have figured out.
Some couples pick a date based on a milestone such as a day they met or the day they went on their first date. This is pretty common but, unfortunately, can lead you to become fixated on a date that limits you on the time of year or could result in booking a less than desirable venue. Most couples after several years of marriage will admit that ultimately, the date really didn't matter but, they felt pressured to choose a date before they could even start the planning process.
Picking a wedding date!
Here is what our trendy brides have figured out. Flexibility is key! Keeping your options open before scheduling tours will land you the best dates at the best venues and at the best rate.
The best venues book first and couples are quick to catch on. They know that in order to have the perfect venue, they have to be flexible. It's important to let the venue coordinator know
that you're flexible up front. She's aware of the best dates
based on price and amenities as well as dates that traditionally have the best guest turnouts,
such as New Years Eve weddings and Labor Day weekend weddings. There are also the
fun dates such as 10-10-10 or 4-3-21. The venue coordinator can also help you select a
date based on promotions and packages saving you thousands, literally! The gorgeous couple featured in the image above booked their date on 4-3-21. How clever!
When you look at venue photos and wonder how couples are managing to afford everything, simply remember to stay flexible. In the end, the only date that will matter will be the date you ultimately get married on.
