When you get engaged, most brides can't wait to start planning their wedding! The best place to begin is with selecting a wedding date, or at least, a time of year that you;d like to get married. But how do you know when is the best time?

Timing Around Life Events In planning a wedding, you'll want to consider your responsibilites at work, in the community, and planned vacations before setting that wedding date as well. Are you a teacher? Summer, Spring Break, or the winter holidays may be the best time for you to get married. Are you an accountant? Planning an April wedding is just asking for a nervous breakdown!

And then there's the other important dates to consider in your life. Do you want to get married on or around a holiday? How close do you want your anniversary to fall to you and your fiance's birthdays? You didn't know there were so many things to consider now, did you? Amount of Sunlight and Weather Conditions Are natural light pictures important to you or do you want more time dancing under the moonlight? Days are longer during those spring and summer months in Houston, so why not take advantage of it if you're looking for those bright and airy photos! Time Needed to Plan Are you a meticulous planner or a spur of the moment gal? If you know that you'll need lots of time to make everything perfect, you might want to consider having a longer engagement. If you're ready to get married like NOW, you will probably opt for a shorter engagement. Be true yourself and your style. Pricing The best deals on wedding venues are during the "slow season" - January and August. These months don't usually have the best weather associated with it, so venues are usually more than willing to offer discounted pricing to those couples wanting to get married during those months. Their loss is your gain! Venue Availability If you want a specific venue, you'll be subject to whenever they have availability, but if you plan on having a long engagement (over a year), then you're more likely to be able to pick your wedding date.
