Late spring to early autumn is considered the peak wedding season – and this is largely to do with the fact that many couples try to aim for when the weather is likely to be good. If you are planning a wedding at this time of year, you will need to take extra care – as everyone is busier, so it may take more coordination than at other times. This post will give you some great tips about how to make the most of your preparation time.
Announce the date as far in advance as possible
It’s always disappointing when people can’t make it to your wedding, and if you’re having a wedding at a peak time then there are people’s holidays to contend with. For this reason, you should send your save the dates as soon as you can, as this means you will get in there before people have started booking holidays.
Check the availability of your suppliers
If you know who you want to hire to do certain things – such as flowers and catering – you will need to double check that they are available on the date that you hope to get married. If you don’t have specific suppliers in mind then this gives you the chance to be a little more flexible, but the sooner you can get your bookings set in stone, the better.
Get measured for your dress
Wedding dress fitting appointments can get booked up quickly, so you will need to get in as soon as you can. It can take a while to find the perfect dress, so don’t take a chance by leaving it. You will need more than one appointment, so get these booked in so that you know you definitely have the slot.
Be aware of your budget
Unfortunately, if you want to hold your wedding in peak season, everything is going to cost more than it would have done during off-peak times. So, you need to be sure that your budget is going to cover everything, as it is frustrating to find that you have to compromise towards the end.
Provided you are organised and ready for everything that needs to be done, you should find that you can plan and enjoy your wedding at in the peak season. The more organised you are, the more you can enjoy your big day as it draws closer.
