Did you check with the place you want to get married to see what dates it is available?

We picked a date according to what the venue we wanted had open. 🙂

I said “What do you have in October through January?”

She responded, “Oh, the whole holiday season is full, so November, December and January are out. October 2 and October 16 are available, or I can check February.”

We went with the 2nd because if we were going to go early, we figured might as well go all the way early!

We pretty much went with what was open and the requirements of the Bahamas. They require you to be there for 72 hours so thats when we are getting married!

May sound weird but I didn’t want my period for my wedding (and would have preferred to have it for the honeymoon), so I took that into consideration as well…worked out perfectly for me!

  • Wedding: March 2018

We got married in Savannah this past March and we LOVED it!  We had about 60 people attend though, so it wasn’t just us like it will be for your wedding.  After narrowing our wedding months down to March or April, we ended up letting the venue determine our date, as we knew we wanted our reception at the Olde Pink House and March 27 was available so we booked it! 

I don’t think you should stress too much about choosing a date.  I would check a calendar of events for Savannah though, just to avoid any major festivals or events that could be going on in town and that may interfere with your romantic weekend. 

Where in Savannah are you wanting to get married and where are you staying?

I would go for early November. That way you can enjoy the holidays with family and friends. Also, the weather might be better – I don’t know if it gets wet or chilly down south in the winter, but earlier seems like you’ll have a better chance of wandering around town enjoying it.
