When picking out your wedding date, it is a good idea to look at your calendar and note any dates which may be a problem for your budget, your guests and even your venue. Make sure to ask your venue if there are any other big events happening in town on the weekend that you are planning on getting married.
Here are six wedding dates I suggest avoiding during 2016 and 2017.
- Weekends With a Monday Holiday
While you may be able to score a discounted rate from the venue to have your wedding on a Sunday night, since most people have the Monday holiday off, you’ll find that flights and hotel costs skyrocket on these weekends. Keep this in mind when picking one of those weekends, as some guests may have to decline coming because of the extra travel costs.
Weekend of May 28-30, 2016
Weekend of May 27-29, 2017
Weekend of September 3-5, 2016
Weekend of September 2-4, 2017
Weekend of October 8-10, 2016
Weekend of October 7-9, 2017
- Thanksgiving Time
A wedding during the holidays may seem like a good idea because most people will have time off from work. However for guests that have to travel, the prices for hotels and flying go up during this time. Plus many of your guests may want to spend the holidays with their family members.
Thanksgiving (always a Thursday)
November 24, 2016
November 23, 2017
- New Year’s Eve
While a New Year’s Eve wedding may seem fun and festive, you may want to be aware of higher prices from venues and vendors.

- Religious Holidays
Be sure to keep in mind the dates of religious holidays when picking a wedding date. Even if it’s not a holiday you observe, scheduling your wedding during Lent, Passover or Ramadan, for example, may limit guests from coming due to cultural obligations.
- Super Bowl Sunday
If you are planning a Sunday wedding or live in Houston, Texas, you may want to avoid having your wedding on Super Bowl weekend. You may also want to avoid dates for other important sporting events like golf tournaments, basketball, etc.

- Friday the 13th
If you’re even a little superstitious you may want to avoid this date for your wedding or rehearsal dinner.

I had so much fun at the #BridalBazaar at the San Diego Convention Center this weekend! It was great meeting all the new 2016 and 2017 Brides & Grooms. Here is a look at our booth featuring a lot of new designs for 2016 that are not even on the website yet. Invitation consultations are booking fast and I’m looking forward to all the new great designs to be created!
It’s that time of year again when the hustle and bustle of the wedding season begins! I have already begun meeting with brides and designing some great new invitations for 2016 weddings. I am also preparing for my booth at the Bridal Bazaar which is this Sunday, January 31st at the downtown convention center. I’m in booth #522 so be sure to stop by and say hello and see what’s new with wedding invitations.
