2021 Wedding Dates To Avoid

Many people don't think when it comes to their wedding day, in fact most couple's choose their day by random, with the reason often being it was what the venue had. However while a venue may have a date in the season you are looking in, there are some things to consider, and that is there are dates to avoid for your wedding.

A lot of dates in this list are holidays, and the main reason to avoid them is due to cost, and attendance. Holiday weekends are often the time people travel, meaning a lot of people you may want in attendance will be out of town. However the big reason is cost. On a holiday weekend, hotel and flights skyrocket. Now you may be thinking we don't have any out of town guests, but often vendors raise their prices for holiday weekends too. Usually because it is taking away time from their holiday celebrations, or because they would normally vacation with family. You will also find less vendors who are available. For example, I would never take a July 4th wedding because my family always goes on vacation that week. However if you are dead set on getting married on a holiday, it is your day and you can! Just keep in mind it may be a little more expensive, or harder to find vendors!
