7 IMPORTANT FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN SETTING YOUR WEDDING DATE
#1 Check with Friends and Family
Friends and Family are number one on the list. You don’t want them to miss the most important day of your life, right? Before setting your wedding date, be sure to run some potential dates by your close people to make sure there aren’t any big conflicts. I am talking about important events, like any other weddings, birthdays, seminars, younger siblings school activities… that would force a best friend or close family member to miss your wedding.
#2 Your Schedule
You have been waiting your entire life for this exact moment, but you know when it’s over you have a workload that will take you longer than your honeymoon. Important rule – don’t leave for your wedding while stressed about an important work deadline or event. Set your wedding date for a time that’s relatively good for yours and your fiancé (e)’s job.
You have always dreamed of getting married at a tropical destination in the summer, but what if those months are in the rain season? If you have your heart set on a beach destination wedding here in Riviera Maya, it’s important to consider the weather in that area. Depending on your preferences, here cooler months start from November until March. All year around we do weddings and have a nice and tropical climate, however the months of June–October are known as hurricane/rain season. Note–that doesn’t mean that it rains every day, every second. It can be sunny and hot, without a single drop from the sky. If you are unsure of the weather and the climate, you can always go back to this link to check your preferred month weather.
#4 Perfect timing, perfect months
Given our experience in destination weddings, there are few popular months considered as perfect for weddings for many couples. The best months for planning a Riviera Maya wedding start from April and May until October and November. That’s because it’s not too close to the holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas) and not at the beginning of the year. Most couple love a spring wedding.
#5 Planning Time
Before saying YES to the date, make sure you have enough time to plan your wedding. Taking at least a 10-12 months period to plan your wedding is recommended and will make a less stressful experience. Less than four months will be difficult, but together with many couples, we have made it happen. That’s why WE are here.
#6 Local Holidays/Festivities
You will find a wide variety of popular Mexican holidays. During those times we have a lot of visitors and guests which may lead to having very busy hotels and attractions. When choosing a date during popular times or a long weekend, pricing rises in flights and hotels. Keep in mind that prices for flights vary every day during those times. It would be lovely for your guests to have a long weekend, enjoy the attractions we offer here in Riviera Maya and not have to worry about how much the flights and accommodation will cost. So do your research on this before you officially set your wedding date.
#7 Be creative
The perfect date is in the numbers. It is easier said than done. If you are a creative person and love playing with meaningful dates and numbers, then this task will be easy for you. A lot of my couples options are to go with matching numbers–such as 10-10-2020 or 1.2.2021 or your first official date/kiss. Read more about popular dates to get married and lucky wedding dates.
