When looking for the best Austin wedding venue to book your event, you first need to know the best wedding date for you. We wanted to help you out so we came up with these questions to ask yourself when trying to choose the perfect date for your big day.
Are there any dates that are off the table because of your or your fiancé’s careers?
Sometimes it’s helpful if you don’t know what season you prefer to consider your careers. Some seasons are busier times of year for some occupations which can help determine the best time of year to get married. For example if you or your partner is an accountant, it’s probably best not to get married during April or towards the end of the year when people are reconciling their budgets.
What other activities do you want to hold, in addition to the ceremony and reception?
Weddings can easily become a multi-day affair especially when you add the welcome party, rehearsal dinner, afterparty, or a farewell brunch. Scheduling out when all these things will happen will help you choose a date.
Pro tip for contacting venues and vendors.
After asking yourselves these questions, make sure to have at least two other back up dates in mind if you’re first choice isn’t available. If you’re still unsure of a specific date but know what month, asking for availability on weekends in July is a better place to start than asking for general availability in summer.
