Every year there are dates that wedding professionals don’t recommend choosing for a wedding. If you are getting married in 2021 through 2023 these are some dates you should avoid that you may not think about, as noted in this article by Wedding Wire:
While some couples may like the idea of a Valentine’s wedding or a Memorial Day wedding, remind them that there could be extra costs, such as flowers being more expensive and labor fees could double on a Holiday if the venue is part of a labor union.
Remind your client if it’s on a major holiday and there are guests from out of town, travel expenses could be more than double to get to the wedding and whenever they have an anniversary, it will be more costly to travel as well.
When picking your wedding date make sure your non-negotiable invites can all attend. It’s nice to make sure your family and bridal party are all free before booking your big day.
Some dates I personally recommend staying away from are Superbowl Sunday, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Memorial Day Weekend. These are dates people typically already have plans so your guest count could dramatically decrease.
