The Secret to a Great Wedding Date


Have you selected your wedding date yet? As soon as you get engaged, you’ll hear: “when’s the big day?“ A great sign that your friends and family are excited to help you celebrate! 


To decide on a wedding date there are several factors you need to consider. Most people take a strategic approach with their wedding date. While it might not sound romantic upfront, a pragmatic approach can be the best way to ensure you love to remember your anniversary! 


Step one – Choose the season

Secret Garden by Wedgewood Weddings, Arizona Wedding VenueAre you imagining getting married in spring, summer, fall, or winter? Lots of couples in Phoenix opt for winter as they prefer lower temperatures. Spring is attractive for all the new blooms, summer is ideal if you want an evening event with spectacular sunsets, and fall is great for changing foliage. As you can see, every season has its benefits. 

But, did you know, all seasons are not equal. Some are priced more competitively than others. If you want to save money for your Arizona wedding then an event during the hottest months will be cheaper – and the outside climate isn’t a factor when you’re enjoying climate-controlled serenity. 


Step two – Choose a day of the week

If your heart is set on a Saturday option, be ready to book further in advance. With only 52 Saturdays in a year, they tend to book first. When considering other days of the week know that the Hollywood A-lister trend recently has been for Tuesdays and Thursdays. 


Step 3 – Chat with your venue of choice
