Dear Wendy K,
I want to start planning but I can’t even seem to choose a date? How do I choose the date for my wedding?
Dear Running Late,
Every facet of your wedding is monumental and shares importance. But, there is an order of details. Obviously, first you need to find your soul mate and make a commitment. Once that has been accomplished, your next step is to choose a date for your wedding. Family dynamics vary as much as sizes and shapes of brides. Due to these dynamics, there are a myriad of reasons – whether personal or financial – that lead to specific choices of dates. When growing up in New York City, the day of choice for the “upper crust” was Thursday as opposed to the traditional Saturday or Sunday. Holiday weekends are sometimes chosen for the joy of having a three-day celebration. Sometimes that is the exact reason a holiday weekend is not chosen. Sundays are generally less costly than Saturdays – except on long holiday weekends. On the east coast, May, June, September and October are more expensive due to the popularity of those months. First you “try” to please everyone — but at the end of the day, please yourself and your future spouse. Once your date is solidified, we at “Party Perfect” will take over and make all the remaining decisions fun and easy for you both.
