When choosing a date for a destination wedding, there are many things that you should consider. If you believe that certain dates such as your birthday, anniversaries, or even holidays in the destination matter to you, then you can opt for such dates without prior planning, this matters only when you are planning to choose destination abroad. But, there are few things that you should consider before deciding a date to get married in your destination; the weather, peak season factor, or availability of affordable packages. So, your question, what dates you should avoid for a destination wedding is answered in our today’s article:
Just imagine you have chosen a Caribbean destination and everything is going exactly as you planned, but then, unfortunately, your wedding has to be postponed due to a sudden hurricane; this is an unfortunate scenario that you would want to avoid at any cost. So, don’t set your wedding dates from May to November as storms and rains are at peak during this time. But if you think affordable deals are what you keep on top priority then you can choose wedding dates during this time as well and take a risk worth taking.
Holidays mean high prices and expensive travel and hotel deals. Whether it is Christmas or Mother’s Day, everything from catering, venues, and decor is going to cost you high. These vendors will charge you higher because of the high demand during holidays. Moreover, in a few western regions such as Latin American countries, Easter is celebrated for an entire week and you may find it difficult to hire good vendors during that week.
Who does not like spring break, when there is a great chance to spend your time with friends and family. But when it comes to a destination wedding during a spring break, don’t give in to this temptation. The vendors in your destination will offer a higher price, availability of venues or resorts will be low and you won’t be able to bear the crowd at your venue. Moreover, the travel cost will put a huge dent in your budget. The most usual time for spring break comes from February to April, so, pick your dates accordingly.
Planning your destination wedding at the right time saves you from the untoward circumstances as well as helps you save money. Whether you are intending to select a national destination or an international one, you need to consider these factors. For more info and tips on destination weddings, stay tuned with us.
