Which month are you planning to marry? What do you need to consider when deciding on the best month for you to say I do?
For some, it will be the month they met, others may just simply have a favourite month.
Then there are the seasons to consider.
So you met in December, but you have dreams of a summer wedding. You want loads of photos taken outside in the daylight, but you want to marry in the winter where you lose day light very early in the day.
Your photographers will be able to go over your plans for your big day and help you with the timings which will work best for you.
For us, we always knew we wanted to tie the knot on a beach somewhere in Greece. We are big sun lovers, but thought if we married in the height of summer, our guests may feel a little too hot. So we decided on a June wedding.
10th June 2010 to be exact at the beautiful Alexandra Beach Hotel. It was a little windy on the island of Zakynthos that day, but sunny nonetheless. A June wedding was definitely right for us.
We encourage you to think about what month will be best for you.
Some tips: For a summer wedding, maybe choose a time a little later in the day so your photos won’t be taken when the sun is at it’s highest, not the best lighting for us photographers! Or if you are having an early ceremony in the height of summer, maybe plan an hour straight after the ceremony for refreshments before your family photos begin.
For a winter wedding, why not have some photos taken before the ceremony and make the use of the day light? Or try to choose a time early enough so you can get your photos before you lose the light.
Of course, we all know the weather isn't guaranteed whichever month you decide to have your wedding, but with a little pre-planning, at least you will be prepared so you can enjoy your day to the fullest.
