So this beautiful, loving hunk of man (or tender caress of a woman) has just proposed to you, and you said yes! So, now what? Planning a wedding includes so many different steps and this step varies from person to person. One thing is for sure, you have to set a date. But how can you narrow it down from both of your birthdays, and you parents birthdays, to that lucky day that you always schedule important events around, and the day you have always envisioned? The pressure is already beginning to mount, but it is ok. Take a breath and start taking notes.
You could choose one particular special date that you would like, but there may be conflict on that day where you can’t get your desired venue or someone one special already had a trip planned for that day. It may be easier to figure out more specifics about your wedding, such as do you want it to be an outdoor wedding? Depending on where you live and what you want and outdoor wedding in the winter may not be the best option for you. You may want to consider hiring a wedding coordinator to help with all of the planning process or another option is start with the season you want to be wed in, and go from there. It will be easier to find a venue that you love when you are working with a much more open calendar.
Choosing a date may be the easiest decision you will make about your wedding if you are open to many different times of the year and the array of possibilities.
