5 factors to take into consideration when picking your dream wedding date.

The time has finally come for you to begin your planning process and start narrowing in on that perfect wedding date! The number one question we find that our couples always get asked: When is the wedding? Whether you have an idea of the exact date or you’re still keeping your options open, use this blog to help you consider 5 factors before you ultimately choose the best date.

Let’s go ahead and dive on into the first thing you should consider: Venue Availability. Before you officially have your heart set on a specific day, talk to your dream wedding venue first. They will give you an idea of their availability before you schedule a tour.    

Feel free to be specific on the time of year or season. Not a big fan of warmer weather? Avoid summer months between May through August. Want to wear a long sleeve gown? December through February would be perfect! Want to avoid the busy wedding season?  October, November, February and April are the most popular months to get married in the state of Florida.

Be on the lookout for big national events such as the Superbowl or Stanley Cup Playoffs. Here in Tampa, Florida we are a big sports city, which means traffic can become busy and the hotels can book up fast! Also keep in mind national holidays. Due to travel and vacation schedules, some guests may choose to not attend the wedding.

Are there any dates that hold meaningful memories to you? We often see couples choosing to marry on the date when they first met or on the anniversary of when they became a couple. Such sweet moments can be cherished and celebrated for years to come.

Last but certainly not least: your budget. There is a huge difference between paying for your big day in a matter of 6 months vs 18 months. Most vendors will cost less during different days of the week. There is a lower demand for Fridays and Sundays vs Saturdays, so you may see some fluctuation in the cost.
