Congratulations to you if you are engaged! Now is when the hard work begins. It all starts with setting the date. The date that you choose for your wedding affects every other aspect of your wedding.
If you have the money, then you can set the soonest date possible for your wedding day. However, if you have limited funds, consider setting a date say, a year from your engagement. During the period in between, you and your partner can set aside a little bit of money each month until you meet your target.
Even if some of your loved ones have promised to finance your wedding, do not factor that money into your budget. Situations can change overnight thus rendering your would-be benefactors unable to give you what they promised. Therefore, unless the money is sent to you prior to the wedding, set a date by only considering what you can afford.
Considering The Season
When do you want to get married? Do you want to get married during the hot or cold season? Would you prefer to get married during the rainy season?
The wedding industry experiences varying levels of demand based on the season of the year. Select a date based on the season during which you would like to be married. If money is limited, select the season of the year when demand for wedding services is at its lowest. By fixing a wedding date during such a time, you will be able to get the wedding of your dreams for a lower price.
