As soon as the engagement shock is over, many couples are at a loss in deciding the perfect day to get married. While there are 365 days to pick from, there are certain times of the year that should be avoided! Our friends at theknot.com helped give us some days that many brides and grooms overlook when it comes to picking the right one to say “I do”!
These few days have both pros and cons. One benefit is that you are able to have an extra day to celebrate the occasion (plus the bonus factor that most venues cost less on Sundays). A downside to this time frame is that most hotel and airfare costs double due to the season!
Religious and Cultural Holidays
Be mindful of religious and cultural holidays (your own and those of your guests) when planning your wedding. There may even be restrictions at your house of worship as to whether or not you’re allowed to marry at these times.
Major Sporting Events
If you or you guests happen to be die hard sports fans, it may be a bad decision to pick your wedding day on the same day as a certain game. Though it may sound like a silly reason at first, many brides and grooms choose to avoid these days in fear that it may conflict with other guest’s plans. Besides, would you really want your wedding party dressed in their favorite Super Bowl attire? ;)
