Choosing the season: Getting married in the summer is not a requirement

The first question that comes to mind. Get married like everyone else in the hot summer, or rely on the snow-swept landscape? See the pros and cons of getting married in each season.

Wedding in the spring

Pros:

  • blossoming nature directly desires beautiful photos and exuberant celebrations

  • a large selection of fresh flowers

  • guests are more likely to take their time on the weekend

Cons:

  • the cold can drive you away in the morning and evening

  • be prepared for April weather

  • bride and groom suffering from pollen allergies

Summer wedding

Pros:

  • heat

  • the possibility to party late into the night outside

Cons:

  • everyone has a wedding in the summer

  • availability of dates well in advance

  • sweltering heat can cause makeup to melt and wedding guests to faint

  • guests on vacation

Autumn wedding

Pros:

  • colorful leaves will serve as a wonderful backdrop

  • guests have a less busy schedule, they find time for the wedding more easily

Cons:

  • colder climate

  • an outdoor party requires multiple layers of clothing

Winter wedding

Pros:

  • fresh backdrops

  • wonderful photos

  • a unique opportunity for unusual models

  • greater selection of free dates

Cons:

  • cold, cold, cold

  • limited outdoor spaces only.

  • more difficult accessibility to remote locations

Hard dates can also help you decide whether an April wedding or an autumn wedding is ideal for you. Specifically, the one from the Czech Statistical Office. Take the year 2022, for example. All 70.9% of marriages in it took place between June and September. August boasted the largest number with 10,084 new marriages. On the contrary, in March, only 647 couples wanted to go under the hood.

The decision is up to you. Do you want to have a wedding in the hay season like most or do you long for a winter dress like Cinderella?

Is there an ideal day of the week?

Most brides and grooms will tell you it's Saturday. Yes, if you consider that guests are more likely to find time because they won't have to deal with vacations. Unfortunately, this is not the only criterion.

It also depends on a completely mundane factor. Availability of your dream wedding venue. Some have booked dates a year or even two in advance. It is so difficult to choose a favorite Saturday date. The usual higher prices of most suppliers are also related to this.

Also check the website of your municipal office. Some have officially reserved days for the conclusion of marriages and others only allow for an additional fee.

Last but not least, be smart. Did you know that you have exactly two days off from the state reserved for your own wedding? You have paid for one of these. What should you plan for a wedding on Friday so that your time off goes smoothly into the weekend?

Watch out for old timers

Now, you might think that it is sheer folly to pay attention to the ancients when choosing a wedding date in the 21st century. Although most engaged people will tell you the truth, you will be surprised to find out that such a wedding in May is still not among the most popular. Because the wedding is in May, until the year of Mary.

It depends only on you whether you follow the pranostics. However, they lack practical significance today. As a rule, the May newlyweds were expected to give birth in the winter months, when the conditions were bad and there was little food, so there was a risk that neither the mother nor the baby would survive. But with today's healthcare, you don't have to worry about that.

For inspiration or a laugh, here is a small overview of other wedding superstitions.

  • A New Year's wedding, a leap to loyalty and love.

  • If you get married in September, you are guaranteed wealth and happiness.

  • Wedding within a year and within a day of the engagement.

A magical date

Finally, one spice. Have you tried to compile a wedding date according to numerology? Although this is not a relevant factor in the choice, but the calculation can relieve tension and bring smiles during the ever-present stress.

How to do it? The ideal wedding date according to numerology is the sum of the numbers of the life paths of the partners. You can calculate this simply by dividing the date of birth into individual digits and adding them until you get a single digit number.

Try it on this pair.

Bride born on 26/07/1998

Groom born on November 30, 1996

2 + 6 + 7 +1 + 9 + 9 + 8 ยด= 42

3 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 6 = 30

4 + 2 = 6 = bride's life number

3 + 0 = 3 = groom's life number

Adding 6 + 3 gives you the number 9. According to numerologists, this couple should try to plan their wedding on the 9th, 19th, or 29th of the month.

Date chosen? Share the date on the wedding website

Whether you're getting married in November, in the winter, or in the middle of a hot summer, you need to let people know about it. A wedding without guests is not a wedding.

Create your own wedding website . You can do it in a few clicks. Add not only the place and time of the ceremony, but also the entertainment program, menu, or even a list of gifts that guests can be inspired by. A practical trick is the RSVP form, in which the invitees can click off if they will be attending and if they need any special arrangements. Whether just a room to sleep or a diet menu.

The website will also serve as a homework book. Write down what needs to be done when and you won't forget anything.

Do you already know when you will officially become man and woman?
