Choosing a wedding date and time of year

The vast majority of weddings are held on a Saturday in spring or summer (September is the most popular month). However, you certainly don’t need to stick to this day, month or season. In fact, weddings held on a day other than Saturday will be less expensive and easier to plan. Exceptions to this are weddings held at Christmas time or on Valentine’s Day (unsurprisingly, a very popular day to get married!).

Your clients should take into consideration the fact that some venues and officiants can be booked up a year in advance (maybe even more) on a Saturday in spring or summer. So it is helpful to have at least a full year to plan if a popular venue or officiant is desired.

Your clients should also keep in mind the following, when choosing a date:

  • Holidays such as Easter and Christmas, school holidays etc. – because travel will be overpriced and it may be difficult for interstate/overseas guests at this time of year, as well as inflating the price of the honeymoon
  • Family commitments such as graduations, baptisms, other weddings, birthday celebrations etc.
  • Major sporting events, concerts and other special events in the area of the wedding that may make accommodation difficult to find and/or more expensive
  • Religious restrictions (if applicable) that may rule out certain wedding days
  • What the weather may be like at the desired time of year.

It’s important that your clients finalize their wedding date as quickly as possible, so that you can assist them in planning all the other details of their wedding.
