Choosing a wedding date is one of the most important planning decisions that you’ll have to make as a couple… it will impact every other aspect of your big day.
For every couple, the process is completely unique and that’s part of what makes your wedding date so special to you. We hope that by sharing some planner insights, we here at The O’Neill Arms Country House Hotel can help you find the perfect time to say, “I do.”
Reasons to get married in January
January weddings are often cheaper, so you’ll get more for your money. You could even bag a last-minute deal. The downside? Your guests might be pinching the pennies post-Christmas, so maybe less keen to travel for weddings/book accommodation. Plus, lots of people could be on new year health kicks or doing dry January.
Reasons to get married in February
Arguably the most romantic month of all, what could be more perfect than a Valentine’s Day wedding? If you had a Valentine’s proposal, it’s a great way to mark the occasion, and you could go wild with a red heart-themed day.
The downside? There’s no denying that February weather is an acquired taste – you’ll need to wrap up warm!
Reasons to get married in March
Spring weddings are popular for a reason; March is the month that sees the first sprinkling of daffodils and crocuses.
The weather in March is fresh but sunny – and it still counts as low season for many venues, making it a more purse-friendly option.
Reasons to get married in April
April hits the balance of warmer weather without the sweat-inducing heat of high summer.
The downside of April weddings is April showers, however, you can take some amazing wedding photos in the rain.
Reasons to get married in May
The month of fresh flowers and sunny spells – if it’s good enough for Harry and Meghan, it’s good enough for us! May is blessed with two bank holidays meaning you’ll need to take less holiday from work. The only issue is, your guests might also be making the most of them and have booked a holiday, thus not being able to make it.
Reasons to have a June wedding
It doesn’t get dark until well into the evening, making June perfect for evening images.
Reasons to get married in July
Beautiful July deserves a dreamy outdoor venue, and it could end up being cost-effective too!
The downside to July weddings is that your guests could end up with multiple invites for the same day, so be sure to get in there early with your invitations to avoid a clash.
Reasons to get married in August
Most children have the entire month off school, so inviting families is a doddle. And it goes without saying, you can almost bank on perfect weather.
Reasons to get married in September
September is often blessed with good weather and has better availability than the summer months, which is why it’s one of the most popular months for a wedding.
Reasons for an October wedding
Golden crunchy leaves and beautiful clear skies are both seriously dreamy wedding accompaniments – there’s nothing quite like an autumn wedding!
Reasons for a November wedding
Crispy cold and atmospheric, November is the perfect month for a winter wedding. It’s a great option for brides on a budget.
Reasons to get married in December
There’s more than one way to have a white Christmas! A festive big day is truly magical, and a real way to make a style statement.
Be sure to give guests a good year’s notice as it’s the busiest party season of all. Working around Christmas weather can be tricky, and snowfall can throw transport plans into chaos.
