    • Wedding: August 2012

    If you erally don’t care if you get married in the spring or summer, I would look at flowers to guide you. I decided on an August wedding then fell in love with tulips…which are insanely more expensive in August then during the spring season. I would have saved tons on $$ if I had planned for spring.

    Also, plan according to the type of weather you would like on your wedding. If you really want an outdoor ceremony, or a beach wedding maybe summer is better for you. if you want a garden wedding, spring time would ensure beautiful blooms in a garden setting.

    I would plan for a weekend wedding, especially if you have out of town guests.

    ultimately, there is no “right or wrong”, it really is what suits you best.

    If you don’t like the heat, don’t get married in the summer.  We hate being hot and sweaty so that knocked late summer off of our options.

    Is it important for you to have ALL your invited guests make the wedding?  Than a weekend would be a better option since not everyone can get off early enough on a weekday. Just a few things to think about.

    I say spring. I hate summer with a passion, I am always hot, my hair is a mess and my make up runs. LOL. But I live somewhere with pretty hot summers, so it also depends on where you live.

    I like the idea of looking at flowers to decide, that would help a lot.

    I also say get married on the weekend, I was gonna do a friday wedding, but after aI calculated it out I wouldnt be saving that much money, so I decided Sat=) So do some calculations and see if it would be a good chunk of money you would be saving.

    Think about your guest list. Parents of school age children might find it hard to travel on a weekday during the school year. Teachers and academics have summers off. Service industry and transportation workers have trouble getting weekends off etc. People with 9-5 jobs will find weekends easier, etc. 

    For my fiance and most of our friends getting a weekend off (especially in the summer or around the holidays) is virtually impossible. And one might say they an request the time off, but computer scheduling algorithms and seniority lists don’t care if you have something special planned.
