When it comes to picking the perfect date, there are a lot of factors to consider. This is a day you’ll celebrate every year for the rest of your marriage! Every season of the year comes with different connotations for weddings. Every season also has holidays, so the question is if you should zero in on the holidays themselves or avoid them. For some, it could certainly be about venue availability, but if you have more flexibility, you may consider having your wedding on or around a holiday.
While only one holiday is specifically designated for “love,” there are many holidays to consider during the calendar year. Every holiday has a family aspect, and weddings are all about friendship and family. It’s all about what you want for your wedding, be it a Valentine’s Day all-pink party or an on-the-nose Arbor Day ceremony for a tree-hugging couple.

Celebrating your wedding on Valentine’s Day would always make the holiday that’s already all about love even more special. Everyone always has romance on the brain during February, with candy hearts and pink balloons everywhere you go. It can be a slightly dreary month in Georgia, but if you don’t mind the cold, it can be a perfect day for a wedding anniversary.

Some people choose to get married near their birthday, and they can celebrate multiple things at once. Others avoid birthdays so they have more reason to celebrate throughout the year.
If you’re keen on random specific holidays, February is National Wedding Month, March 1st is National Marriage Planning Day, and the second Friday in June is National Marriage Day. Those all seem to blend together, but gives the first half of the year the edge when it comes to when the right time to tie the knot is.

While it may be complicated to share your special day with a holiday, it can make them all the more unique and memorable for the people in attendance. They’ll always remember the time they spent the holiday with you, celebrating your relationship and commitment.
You may want to stay away from days like Thanksgiving and Christmas since those tend to take folks all over the country to travel, but you could always do it close to those family-oriented holidays to make sure guests will have off of work or school. Also, certain holidays like Easter and Thanksgiving shift dates depending on the year.

In the end, the day of your wedding is totally up to you. Be it a random day in August, Valentine’s Day, or the anniversary of the first time you went on a date, it doesn’t matter as long as you always remember to mark it on the calendar and celebrate every year.
