What made you choose what time of year to get married?
Sentimental value more than anything, we're having August bank holiday, we met that weekend 5 years ago, got together that weekend 2 years ago, our baby was due that weekend. It just seems right :)
Hi Rebecca no reason other than 18 is when most of the family birthdays are :)
My fiancé proposed in August and we wanted a summer wedding
We were originally going to have a spring wedding but that would take us to 2019 and my grandad has Alzheimer's and I wanted him to have more of a chance to come so we went for September 2018 and the date worked out as being the day after our "relationship anniversary" anyway.
We tried to get a day closest to our anniversary as possible but within the school holidays x
We got engaged on Christmas Day and am getting married on 23rd December this year
In between our previous weddings
my fiance bought my engagement ring the day after my dad's funeral. my wedding date is my dads brthday, its the only date that felt and still feels right xx
Discounted price at chosen venue
3pm ,3rd September 2016. Thought 3 pm perfect for wedding,photos ,speeches etc, then evening disco began. Chose date as September is generally good weather
We got together in march so that was our relationship anniversary. We wanted to keep celebrating anniversaries in March so that's when we got married.
I love Christmas so it had to be then. We got married on December 21st last year
My partner suffers with really bad hayfever so a summer wedding was out the question we've gone for a November wedding x
We're 3.3.18 at 3pm just because I likes it being a funky date and it's easy for the other half to remember it also falls in March which is just before the high season and expensive quotes :)
We wanted April as that when we got engaged however the kids would be in school so we decided august so the kids were off plus it would be a nice day
Autumn is our favourite time of year, just as the leaves start changing. We love all the colours.
How many paydays it would take us to save plus a couple just in case
The day we got engaged was a significant date to us already. We are getting married exactly 2yrs to the day that we got engaged
We got married 29th July which is our anniversary from when we got together ️
My fiancé was a teacher so we chose the summer holidays. Most expensive time of year to get married. He quit teaching about 4 months after. Oh well, still a nice time of year to get married.
August - not much other choice as I work in a school.
We met in May 2013, got engaged May 2014, got married May 2017. X
Chose April as I love that the gardens at the venue will be green and spring like. Also, i'm hoping it won't be too cold or too hot (but in the Uk you never can tell!!!).
My mum asked me if we could get married on the anniversary of my brothers death so it could give her happy memories instead of sad. X
It was the only Saturday of the year left at the venue we wanted lol x
I always wanted a June wedding on a Saturday and my venue didn't charge extra for peak season so that's what we went for!
We picked our date based on the venue. We've got a beautiful old Hall surrounded by Woodland so we went for early Autumn. xXx
12/09/18 the date itself is my grandparents wedding anniversary, my grandad who I was especially close to isn't here anymore, it's kind of my way of including him
Plan for the weather. Then it can't ruin your day.
We are getting married on my birthday
We got married in June purely just in hope of good weather, we had no set time planned, just wanted to see what dates we could get once we found the venue but I knew I'd not be getting married around Xmas or anything... I wanted it a bit warmer than that time of year haha
We ended up getting married 14/06/14 So the dates quite easy to remember too haha
We got married in Cyprus so decided to go for a June wedding 15.06.16 - the weather was perfect, lovely and warm (around 28 degrees) but not too hot like it is in July and August xx
We're getting married in October which will be our 10th anniversary of being together x
We want an outdoor ceremony
We started dating 7th July 4 years ago. Also it will be a nice easy date to remember 7.7.17
It's our 10 year anniversary 11th August this year so we wanted to get married as close to this date, which is 12th
My husband :-) as he didn't wanna forget the day so it was near his birthday haha
It was the first date the vicar had available lol.
We're now not getting married at church, we're doing it all at the venue.
January, didn't want to be sweaty winter is cute af
We wanted a woodland theme and we felt it fit best in the autumn :)
We had originally chosen March for it to be a spring wedding and was the only Spring month in the chosen package but in a twist of fate, after losing our baby boy the year before we postponed it and managed to get a date in May which was the day after our boys first anniversary of his stillbirth so it gave a welcome distraction planning and having the wedding and now the month of May will not be tinged with as much sadness, and changing a negative into a positive xx
It was the best time to go on our honeymoon. You can't guarantee the weather here so might as well guarantee it while you're away! Fell nicely on our 5 year anniversary
When he was guaranteed to be home, so we picked Easter leave x
Price lol. We got married in January, which made our dream venue £2500 cheaper than May onwards. Weather was great, pictures are great and everyone was happy. And we didn't have to skimp on anything
We're having a summer wedding simply because We want to get married outside and have a marquee reception with a fire pit and a bouncy castle and I don't like being cold! We're going for June when the wild flowers will be in bloom at the venue we want
I get married in 10 days, went with June as was hoping we were sure of sun. I also like the date 17.06.17 😊x
Always wanted around our anniversary (7th March) but we are actually doing the 10th March as it would have been my dad's birthday so felt appropriate as he has since passed away so if he can't be there we can honour him xx
We got married on our anniversary
My grandparents wedding anniversary x
We've gone for August, for a few reasons; 8 is my favourite number so we are getting married 27.08.2018, we wanted a summer wedding as we'd like to get married outside (hoping for nice weather!) and my h2b's Mum is a teacher as is my MOH so needed to be during a school holiday! Also should mean honeymoon is a bit cheaper as we will be going just after school holidays!
We are getting married in January it will be six years to the date that we met and also three years to the date that we got engaged
We decided based on how long it would take us to get something me money together. We wanted May initially but the venue we chose only had April, July or September and we wanted the soonest one? Plus saved about £300!
We're not married yet, but it will be during September. It's the only month where there are no family birthdays and the weather is usually pretty good x
We decided on March because we first met in March 9 years ago. We got married on March 11th this year. x
I wanted a Saturday a lot of the family have season tickets... so I went for June as the footballs not on
We have gone for August because we have a double celebration on the 26th. As well as our wedding, it will be exactly 3 years since I received my second chance at life after receiving a double lung transplant x
We were extremely lucky with our day, the venue we picked had the 01-09-18 free so we grabbed that as my H2B would have just had his leave. When we booked it we didn't actually realise it would be literally the day after our four year anniversary. My mum was the one who realised and told us.
We got married at a football ground so 3pm kickoff
Money! Sunday's in December are cheap!
We met on sept 10th 2010, he proposed on sept 10th 2015 and we married a year later on sept 10th 2016! Xx
Venue availability really, we had a few months that my husband couldn't take a lot of time off in so they were ruled out but otherwise we went with when the place we wanted was available. Also cost to a certain extent, may was more than April so we picked April of the 2 dates they had!
We're getting married on 5th July 18. We got 2gether on 1st July 2010 & my birthdays on the 28th July
September cos I always remember by best pal saying its the driest month of the year, however she also married sept and it poured all day but apparently that's lucky and she's on 10yr almost so ChaCharlene Campbell
Was our 10th anniversary of being together. 1/9/2016
Wanted a august wedding and the 12th just seemed to sing out to me x
Me and my partner went to get married on the day between our birthdays
But it happens to be peak wedding season so we're only getting married on paper that day and then having our actual wedding with all our family in October. It's saving us £2700
We liked a particular season (colors) so we went for October :) x
Because i have fair skin and burn easily, and also Raynauds Syndrome and can't cope with the cold. Gave husband choice of Spring or Autumn and he picked spring.
Also had to plan it around School holidays of three council areas as bridesmaid, MOG, Best man's wife are all teachers and piper was a schoolboy
Met 4th July 2011 married 4th July 2015 x
We chose May as it's just before the peak season so cost us a lot less than it would have. Also didn't really want a summer wedding!! xx
We picked the date of my husband's parents wedding anniversary and in honour of his mum who passed away 4 years before we got married xx
The 10% discount for winter weddings
I can't remember... Something to do with birthdays...I had counted weeks or summet.and the distance between them. Strange reason.. Hahahahahaha
We chose end of October cos autumn is my favourite time of year and the end of October is usually half term so my mum can attend
my h2b choose my birthday so he dont forget our anniversary
We are having a November wedding because none of us like the heat me more than my h2b as I blister as soon as the sun hits me even with sun block. So a winter wedding it is and it also lands on my h2b 50th birthday so double celebration.xxx
It's the only time my H2B can close his restaurant
Budget and availability. May is cheaper and the venue was available ;-) Would have gone for our anniversary of getting together but July tends to be hot and I was worried about the struggle of putting wedding bands on swollen fingers!
We are 28/4/18 ... we chose April because my Mum and Dad got married 2nd April and my fiances parents got married 14th April ... theyve been married 30 and 33 years so we decided we wanted to carry it on
We went for early May because all my favourite flowers were in bloom and made for lovely photos at the venue. We were lucky with the weather too as it was a lovely dry day but not too hot.
Mainly how long we would need to save. Luckily we were able to book it for end of the summer so its lighter later
We chose beginning of September as we always remember it being sunny when we went back to school and we are having an outdoor ceremony! Also the venue was cheaper out of summer months which was bonus! ️
Getting married on my late grandpas birthday next may
We got married 13th Aug 2016, because we booked wedding earlier than planed we wanted as late as possible in the summer, so we had more time to save, but before my husband would be really busy at work, and 13 is my lucky number and only Saturday they had in the month that wasn't someone else's birthday or anniversary lol
Anniversary of when he proposed xx
Hay fever picked early Oct as it can still be quite mild and sunny. However we have picked a venue with an amazing interior just in case 🤞
because its the closest saturday to out anniversary
Our anniversary :)
Stuart and I went for the 18/08/2018. He will be 48 on the 12th August and we will have been together 8 years also then. That and its easy for stuart to remember( hopefully) lol
We're both teachers so had to be school holidays. Better chance of good weather in summer. Cheaper on a Friday than a sat and only one year one day after getting engaged.
We've gone for March 2018 as I get really bad hayfever so didn't want streaming eyes and a sore nose
No choice 1 weekend given to us by my h2b boss!
Marrying a farmer it was the only down time. We live in Canada and family is back in England we also planned it then. We didn't want a winter wedding for various reasons and we couldn't have a summer wedding because of seeding and harvest.
My OH and I are planning our wedding for 11th August next year. I didn't care about the month of the wedding, we just wanted it to be on the 11th as that number connects us and our children. (Got together in the 11th month, first son born in the 11 month a year later, second son born 11pm in 2011 and our little girl arrived 11 days late) I know it's silly but it just feels right for us
We got married on my parent's wedding anniversary as I had lost my dad a couple of years before and wanted to honour both my parents. It's our third wedding anniversary next week
We needed it to be in the summer holidays as I am a teacher. We choose the middle of august so we had time to finish wedding bits once I finished school but time to get work done before I went back x
Cost! We chose Feb as it was the cheapest for our venue. Good luck deciding on your date!
I got married on my 50th
May - husbands Late granny was called May, and her birthday was also May. Also, usually get some decent weather that month so it suited for that reason too! X
2 days before my 30th would have been on my 30th but register office isn't open on a Sunday xx
Price of venue and then I found out we can have fireworks!
Our anniversary is 26th december.. his birthday & our lil boys birthdays are also december.. so we stayed clear of that we got engaged in sept so chose that. Id always choose a month where there are no birthdays or events ect happening around it x
If you want to go on honeymoon straight away - certain places will be out of season etc
We wanted a spring Saturday out of peak season and was realistically going to be three years for us to afford it and when we looked at the calendar, the date my now husband proposed was a Saturday three years later so went for that date. Only later did we realise it was also easter weekend so extra time to relax x
We wanted a winter/Christmas wedding so chose 23rd December as it was enough time after breaking up from school (I'm a teacher) and also leaves Christmas eve for family to travel back home ready for Christmas day.
Was the month between mine and my husbands birthdays
We got married in Feb as so many people have summer weddings and it rains. At least with a winter month you know there is a big change weather will be crap... our day was lovely though and we couldn't have asked for better weather x
Wanted to go to Up Helly Aa for our honeymoon. That's on a set date very year of the last Tuesday in January so we married in Gretna on the Saturday then travelled to the Shetland islands for 3 nights followed by Iceland for 5.....it was our "fire and ice" honeymoon!
I suffer from terrible Hayfever, so late spring and summer were out of the question. Sneezing and eyes streaming through out my wedding - nope! So going for October when the weather is still alright but no pesky pollen! X
01.06.18 2 days away from my birthday and my fiture in laws wedding anniversary.
We wanted something to celebrate in May, we get married 29th may next year in cyprus just short of 10 years together. We lost my h2b's dad in april 2015 and his birthday falls in May x
Ours was the only Friday 13th that year
Near our anniversary and autumn is much cheap than summer
Choosing our date based on 2 things...
to avoid birthdays (i have 4 close family members, including h2b who were born in August, costs me a damn fortune every year, don't need an anniversary on top of that!)
and specifically want to avoid our busy period at work so that I don't have to spend my honeymoon worrying about the amount of work im coming back into!
We're both teachers and want pur honeymoon to follow the wedding asap so summer holidays was only viable time,really! Plus my fiances birthday is August 4th and it's on a saturday the year we wanted to get married so all fitted perfectly! Means I get a pressie every year on his birthday as it'll be our anniversary and I'm a brat 😄😄😄
It's 2 years today he proposed and it's landed on a Saturday, so it was perfect.
We chose our anniversary of when we found each other again. Got married on our 3rd anniversary of being together again. It's our 1st wedding anniversary this July. :)
We're getting married on our 5th anniversary 😍
I wanted long daylight hours to make the most of the day. warm weather but not too hot for a wedding dress, hydrangeas in season and a bank holiday weekend so we have booked the end of May bank holiday for our wedding
We got married on 22nd November - I lost my Dad the year before and mum and dads wedding anniversary is 16th Nov - it was the closest date we could get to theirs x
My first wedding was a summer do so I wanted as far away from that as I could get, so chose a winter wedding this time, my fiance first contacted me on fb on Dec 11th after losing touch for 20 yrs so that's our date
21/07/2017. 2 days before husband's birthday so he doesn't forget the date, 3 year anniversary of when we got engaged and also school holidays so we could have the time off for the honeymoon.
August. We chose a Friday in the Summer holidays, so children can come when it's £2,000 cheaper at our venue than on a Saturday or Sunday. That and hopefully the sun will shine.
The season - we both hate summer so anything from may to September was out the question...my birthday is October, his birthday is February - opted for November!!
We met in August, got our first home together in August so we wanted to get married in August too! We really wanted a summer wedding and to get married outside so August was perfect. The perfect temperature too and not close to christmas or anything like that. I could never have a winter wedding, i hate being outside in the cold so i would hate every minute of my photos as id be freezing and it would ruin it for me, plus everyone is always ill and has lots of plans coming up to christmas so everything is always to do with xmas! Summer time the days are longer, sun shines and everyone is happier! Looks like August is very popular on here too! xxx
We chose November as its close to our anniversary, close to Christmas (my fave time of year) you can make things so cosy and beautiful with candles. We live right on the coast and are getting married in a cave venue on the cliffs so it will be really dramatic and romantic...and you can kinda predict the weather ...so excited!x
We are getting married in february on a sunday as the venue we have chosen we get the same decent package as in they offer for summer but at 7000 cheaper! I used to be a wedding coordinator and I have seen so many people pay much more money to have a better chance of having a sunnier day, but end up with a day that is just as cold and rainy as what we get in winter. I can anticipate for having a rainy and cold wedding day and if it happens to be sunny on the day its a bonus :) we also chose to marry on the 18th as my H2B considers it his lucky number
We were thinking Spring 18 then were lucky enough to win our venue in a raffle to be used between Jan - Mar 18. So March it is
I'm a teacher so had to get married in holidays!
We live in North East Scotland so wanted a date where it got dark before 8pm as we didn't want to have our first dance & evening reception in broad daylight (it's still light here until almost midnight in June). We also wanted it to not be too near either of our birthdays..... so Oct!!
Closest date to our getting together Anniversary xx
We are getting married in may. We met 6th of May which we class as our anniversary and we got engaged 10years after we met. We actually went on our first date on 9th May so we getting married 9th May 2020, 3 years and 3 days after our engagement x
The only date that had a special offer on!!
We are getting married on our 6th anniversary of when we first met x
Blossom. We wanted to get married while the blossom was just coming out, and then we went straight onto Japan for Hanami/the cherry blossom festival. 2nd April turned out perfectly! :-)
I misscarried in October 2015 & our baby would have been due on the 4th May 2016. I wanted an even year to get married so we picked 2020 & 2nd May as that's the closest to what would have been our babies 4th Birthday & it falls on a Saturday
Being a teacher and wanting a honeymoon it had to be end of July or start of August!
We are getting married on 6th April next year as the 5th is my fiancés 30th birthday And the 7th is mine. Xxxx
We have gone for a Saturday in August (5.8.17) but only because at our venue it costs no more to do this. Same price all year round and any day of the week. Otherwise we definitely would have considered a cheaper time of year :)
The navy! Wanted November and couldn't, changed to September but couldn't again so had to change to August!! Very annoying! X
may day xx
Pricing....it's ridiculous how much everything costs once you mention wedding. We got married in march just before it hit the summer pricing packages
Had to be school holidays too cos we were getting married on a Wednesday
We like the Autumn colours and getting married on Friday of school half term as he is the school caretaker so he has a day off!! Having the party on the Saturday though - can't face EVERYTHING all in one day!
10 years of being together ️️
Getting married next Friday 16th June, reason is 2 days before fiance birthday and that way he says he'll never forget our anniversary, hmmm we'll see :-D
Me and summer don't mix, the heat makes me ratty so wanted something in between. We married on 16th August. Perfect combination. But without realising it till nearer the day, the day was also special as it was the anniversary of the day I had my 12 week scan 6 years prior
We chose our date in October as it was the day we first met, it's also a weekend and the first day of half term so we can get away for a little while in half term as I am a teacher! xx
We got married August 22nd 2015.Thats the day we met 19 years ago.It was my 40th 2 days before and didn't celebrate it apart from a KFC lol as we really wanted to get married on the 22nd and couldn't afford 2 big parties lol
