Ahh…your beloved has just knelt down on bended knee and proposed his undying love and devotion, asking you to be his wife. He has presented you with the most spectacular princess cut diamond. You’ll proudly accept, of course, and all that is left is to set a date.
Factors To Consider
Becoming engaged to marry is one of the most enchanting experiences of your life. For some, however, jumping to the next step of setting the wedding date can be fraught with anxiety. Many couples avoid this for a while and prefer to just bask in the engagement period. Other couples dream of planning the most unforgettable wedding experience on Planet Earth.
However, what is the most common question that everyone you tell about your engagement will ask? “Congratulations. So when is the date?” There is no way to get around it. Setting a wedding date must be done, but not hastily. Considerable planning and thought should go into the date you choose.
When deciding a wedding date, you don’t want to pick either your birthday or a common holiday. It is not fair to share a special day like a birthday with an equally important day like an anniversary. Also, getting married on a summer holiday or a day like Thanksgiving or Christmas can tear people away from their own family plans and can risk friends not showing up. Also, when celebrating your anniversary, it can impede upon you fully enjoying the holiday, because of its other significance.
Planning Your Wedding Date On A Special Day
There is a solution to your dilemma of picking a wedding date. Since getting married is a romantic event, why not choose Valentine’s Day for your wedding date? Since this day is a cherished day for romance and love, why not have a Valentines Day Wedding Extravaganza to say your vows.
Choosing Valentine’s Day to get married will automatically put your guests in a good mood. You can decorate in a sea of red and white flowers. Bridesmaids can wear a Lela Rose Bridesmaid dress and the groomsmen can have red shirts or white shirts with red ties. Heart shaped cakes and other heart shaped decorations can be everywhere, both for the ceremony and reception. Cupid with his arrow can be displayed.
The budget conscious will of course think of the possibilities. By killing two birds with one stone, so to speak, as you celebrate two holidays in one, you have now just cut the cost of your gift budget. A dozen red roses can double for your anniversary and Valentine’s Day, as can chocolates. The romantic anniversary trip can now include the romance of Valentines.
