How in the world do you even begin to choose a single date? There are so many options.

You have twelve wonderful months to choose from, and each has its own benefits. If you don’t already have the perfect date in mind, you may need a little assistance choosing one.

Here at Signature Occasions, we want every bride to have their perfect wedding day. That’s why we have put together a few top tips to assist you in choosing the best date for your big day. If you are still staring at the calendar, be sure to keep reading to learn more:

  • Winter. If you are someone who envisions walking down the aisle in a magical Winter wonderland, your first thought may have been to host a Winter wedding. Newly fallen snow is quite beautiful with its sparkling white color, and soft look. However, before you start trying to book a venue in the middle of January, it’s important to consider practical elements. The weather alone is one harsh element that will have a huge impact on your day. If you hoped for any visits outside, this will surely require you and your guests to bundle up. Travel plans may also be affected if weather makes an impact. If you feel the Winter weather will have a negative impact on your day, it may be best to choose a different season. Otherwise, enjoy that whimsical Winter wedding!

  • Spring. If you haven’t already been told by your loved ones, Spring is an ideal season for your big day. No one will have to battle the unrelenting heat of summer, or the biting cold of the Winter. Flowers are blossoming and creating a stunning view, but this can be a negative for those with allergies. And, one common enemy of Spring weddings that should be kept in mind is the dreaded rain. Spring is a beautiful season, filled with new life, that perfectly symbolizes the new life you are creating as you join yours with your partner’s.

  • Summer. Summer is a warm and playful season, filled with trips to the beach, pool, and lounging around in the sun. However, this does mean that the days will be hot. Summer weddings will need to accommodate a large group of people with proper heat protection and air flow. If you have your heart set on a stunning summer wedding, just be sure that you and your guests are properly taken care of in the heat.

  • Autumn. Perhaps the most artistic season of the year, Autumn offers a beautiful setting for your big day. The foliage around you will change colors, creating a natural, fiery and breathtaking backdrop for your big day. This is a beautiful time of year for a wedding and offers its own unique décor. Be sure that you beat the cold weather if you were hoping for a comfortable outdoor wedding where nature is your main source of décor.

Each season has its ups and downs. It’s up to you to decide which season offers the best setting for you and your partner to join each other in marriage. Here at Signature Occasions, we want to help you plan the perfect wedding, no matter the time of year.
